An illustrative case: Hamas wants to change border agreement of 2005

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2008/02/illustrative-case-hamas-wants-to-change.html

Maannews, the Palestinian news service, carried the following fascinating bit of news:
 
Hamas delegation to Cairo express reservations on AMA border agreement
Date: 02 / 02 / 2008  Time:  11:34

Gaza - Ma'an - A Hamas delegation to the Egyptian capital on Saturday expressed reservations concerning the Agreement on Movement and Access (AMA)  drawn up by Israel and the Palestinian Authority in November 2005.

Hamas leader in-exile Muhammad Nasr said that the Hamas delegation has stated it reservations on reconsidering the agreement, which they perceive as no longer valid. The delegation is now waiting for a response from the Egyptians, he added.

The AMA was agreed under the once Fatah strongman Muhammad Dahlan in 2005. 

Under the agreement, European monitors replaced Israel military forces at the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt. Israel retained effective control to open and close the crossing, however, because it could prevent the European teams from reaching the crossing point.
 
Why is it interesting? Firstly, because many "analysts" insist that Israel disengaged from Gaza without making any agreements with the Palestinian Authority, and that this is the source of the problems in Gaza.
 
Secondly, because the Hamas are now attempting to change the agreement - by negotiating with Egypt.
 
Third, because it is illustrative of the value of such agreements.
