“Salam Fayyad is unacceptable, because he has drowned the Palestinian people in billions of dollars of debt”.
This is the words of Salah Bardawil, a member of the political bureau of Hamas in Gaza.
“Fayyad has made its economy and political decision-making dependent on foreign donors,” said Bardawil.
Since signing a reconciliation accord more than a month ago, the Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have made only slow progress in carrying it out.
On Sunday we saw a public disagreement over Fatah’s nomination Saturday of Salam Fayyad, a political independent who is the Palestinian Authority premier, as prime minister of a joint government.
The candidacy of Fayyad is key to whether a unified Palestinian government will continue to have Western backing. The U.S.-educated economist is respected by foreign donors.

Basically, what the Hamas is saying is that Fayyad is corrupt. He has pocked the money from Western well wishers, and not distributed them properly.
The Hamas is short of cash. If the Unity Government can bring the money into the secret account of the Hamas leadership, than Fayyad suddenly will be acceptable for them also.
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
Cash is the King also among Islamic terrorists.
