2006 ? Israeli troops remain poised just outside the Gaza Strip, and officials say they could soon launch a major offensive against Palestinian militants holding a captured Israeli soldier.

But even as the crisis builds, the big news from Gaza is word of an agreement between rivals Hamas and Fatah on a common political platform.

The so-called Prisoners Document calls for the creation of a Palestinian state, alongside Israel, within borders that existed before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. It also asserts the “right of return” of Palestinian refugees to land which is now part of Israel proper.
