Hamas gov't to resign in favor of a unity coalition?

Here's some surprising (to me, anyway) news from Vital Perspective: The Hamas-led government of the Palestinian Authority plans to resign in the next few days in favor of a unity coalition with Fatah. This is an effort to lift a crippling Western embargo and restart talks with the Israelis.

If true, this is the first good news out of the Palestinian Territories in as long as I can remember.
