Mohammed Shabir

Summary
Mohammed Shabir, sometimes written Mohammed Shbeir, Mohammed Shubair or Mohammed Shubeir, (Arabic: محمد شبير; born 1946) was at one point the Prime Minister-in-waiting for the next Palestinian unity government. On November 13, 2006 senior Hamas officials in Syria announced that Hamas and Fatah had agreed on him. Shabir, however, did not become Primime Minister. Salam Fayyad became Prime Minister when Hamas took over Gaza, in 2007, then Rami Hamdallah in 2013. Shabir, 60, is originally from the Gaza town of Khan Yunis and received his doctorate in microbiology from Marshall University. He served for 15 years as president of The Islamic University in Gaza, retiring in August 2005. He and his wife have six children, and she is deputy to the minister of women's affairs. They live in Gaza City. Considered close to both Hamas and Fatah, Shabir frequently visited the late Yasser Arafat in his West Bank and Gaza Strip headquarters. See also
