Fatah rejected a proposal by Hamas to join forces in a Palestinian Authority government. Lawmakers from the long-dominant Fatah faction voted Saturday against allying themselves with the radical Islamic group, which swept to victory in P.A. legislative elections in January. Though the decision has yet to be ratified by the Fatah Revolutionary Council, the faction’s central decision-making body, it is expected to be permanent.
