GAZA CITY - Rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas on Wednesday announced a reconciliation deal to end their seven-year schism, in a further blow to U.S.-led efforts to broker a peace agreement between the Palestinians and Israelis. Leaders of the groups said they will form a unity government within five weeks, solicit a vote of confidence from the Palestinian parliament, then schedule elections in six months. "This is good news to tell our people: The era of division is over," Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of Hamas, declared at a news conference here.

TAL KHALAKH, Syria - For more than a year, Ghassan Eid didn't speak to his son, Khaled, who abandoned his job as a policeman and joined the armed rebels. "I was ashamed," recalled the father, a shop owner in Tal Khalakh, long renowned as a smuggling hub with nearby Lebanon - and more recently as a cross-border terminus for arms and rebel fighters. "He was not my son anymore. " All that has changed. Khaled has renounced the uprising to oust President Bashar Assad and is studying to become a lawyer.

In working with couples of all sexual orientations, Santa Monica psychiatrist Dr. Mark Goulston has devised a kind of alphabet guide to conflict resolution. He breaks the process down into what he calls the three Hs and the three Rs. First, Goulston said, a person feels injured and hurt . Next comes a feeling of hate , where "you are so infuriated at someone who betrays such a deep level of trust, someone you thought of as an ally who now seems like an adversary."

The foreign ministers of Syria and Iraq will meet soon to prepare for talks between Syrian President Hafez Assad and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Qabas said Thursday. A reconciliation between Assad and Hussein could lead to a key shift of influence in the Middle East, affecting the seven-year-old Iran-Iraq War, Al Qabas said. Under Assad, Syria has been a close ally of Iran, but a rapprochement with Iraq could drastically alter that policy.

This year's Academy Award documentary short subject nominees prove more substantial than their animation and live-action counterparts. Of the three Oscar shorts categories, the docs - a supersized collection of works broken down here into two separate programs - are the most cohesive bunch, with themes of mortality and reconciliation. Two shorts from Program A feature subjects already well documented elsewhere. "The Lady in Number 6" profiles Alice Herz Sommer, the now-110-year-old pianist who recited Chopin's études from memory while inside the Theresienstadt concentration camp in what is now the Czech Republic.

The president of Occidental College this week made an emotional plea for support to some 60 faculty members, saying his administration was "shell shocked" by criticism over its handling of student sexual assault allegations. Speaking for 20 minutes without taking questions, President Jonathan Veitch pleaded for reconciliation on campus, saying the controversy had taken a toll "on my health and my soul," according to several people who attended the meeting. He mentioned that his five-year contract was up for renewal, which suggested to some that he needed the faculty's backing.

BERLIN -- President Obama on Wednesday rejected criticism from Afghan President Hamid Karzai's office that the U.S. had said one thing and done another while arranging informal peace talks with the insurgent Taliban movement. “We had anticipated that at the outset, there were going to be some areas of friction, to put it mildly, in getting this thing off the ground,” Obama said at a news conference here with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Karzai's office earlier in the day had abruptly canceled ongoing security negotiations with U.S. officials aimed at defining the U.S.-Afghan relationship after American-led foreign forces leave Afghanistan, a move scheduled for the end of next year.

The Rev. Will D. Campbell was a poor white boy from Mississippi who preached his first sermon from a pulpit stocked with a Bible from the Ku Klux Klan. But this son of the segregated South - a self-avowed "good ol' boy with crazy ideas" - did not follow the conventional career path for a Southern Baptist minister in the 1950s. He became the only white man admitted to the founding meeting of the seminal Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957. That same year, when nine black students attempted to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., he was one of three white ministers who guided them past a fierce white mob. Later, when civil rights workers targeted Nashville lunch counters, he rounded up sympathetic whites to nudge the business owners toward integration.

MOSCOW - His books were burned by a mob in Azerbaijan's second-largest city. His wife and son have lost their jobs. A crowd in a small town demanded that his blood be tested to establish his true ethnicity. The nation's president stripped him of his honorary title as "the People's Writer. " And an infuriated mob under his window made threats against his life and told him to leave the country. Akram Aylisli, 75, says the treatment he has received since publication of the Russian translation of his latest book, "Stone Dreams," defies even his own literary imagination.

North Korea has blamed Seoul for a sharp deterioration in relations after years of detente, accusing South Korea's conservative president of wanting neither reunification nor dialogue. Relations between the two Koreas, which fought a devastating war in 1950-53 and remain divided by the world's most heavily fortified border, reached a new low this week with North Korea's military announcing it will halt border crossings Dec. 1. The ban could force dozens of South Korean factories operating at an industrial park in the North to shut down -- a symbolic rejection of South Korean efforts since 2000 to foster reconciliation through commerce.

RAMALLAH, West Bank -- Rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have reached agreement on steps to bridge their years-long divide, including the formation of a unity government by month's end, mediators and officials with the two groups said Thursday in Cairo. The two Palestinian factions, which have been at odds since Hamas fighters drove Fatah's forces from the Gaza Strip in 2007, have been holding on-again, off-again reconciliation talks for more than a year. Their goal has been to politically reunite the West Bank, which is under Fatah control, and the Gaza Strip, ruled by Hamas.
