Egypt reportedly proposed a plan that would dissolve the Hamas-led Palestinian government in favor of one headed by a more moderate businessman. The proposal states that Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh should resign his post and appoint in his place a person acceptable to both Hamas and its rival, Fatah. One suggestion being floated is Nablus businessman Munib al-Masri, who received an offer from the late Yasser Arafat in 2004 to head the Palestinian government.
