Click here: Adnkronos – Indonesia: Largest Islamic group ‘ready to mediate’ between Fatah and Hamas

Indonesia’s largest moderate Islamic organisation, the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), said to be ready to mediate in the Hamas and Fatah conflict. Hasyim Muzadi, NU Chairman, said that Palestine president Mahmoud Abbas has already agreed to a direct intervention of the Indonesian organisation. “We are able to bridge the Hamas and Fatah conflict. We’ve already declared that,” Muzadi told Indonesian news portal ‘Detik’ on Tuesday.

NU boasts 40 million members and counts on good links with other Islamic groups worldwide. “Even though Palestine has not gained independence yet, it needs to be united. It’s more respectable than being independent, but shattered inside. Thus, if allowed, we’re ready to bring them together,” he added.
