West Bank: Hamas Accuses Fatah of Links to Assassination in Dubai
Hamas asserted Friday that two former officers from the rival Fatah organization were involved in the assassination of a Hamas official in Dubai, while Fatah insinuated that Hamas members were the ones who collaborated with the killers. The Dubai police have two unidentified Palestinians in custody in connection with the killing of the official, Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, last month; 11 other suspects who had European passports are at large. A Hamas Web site, the Palestine Information Center, said the two Palestinians were Anwar Shheibar and Ahmad Hassanain, former Fatah security officers and current employees of a senior Fatah official. Hamas has accused Israel of the killing, but Izzat al-Rishq, a Hamas leader in Damascus, Syria, said the Palestinians might have been “small collaborators.”
A Fatah spokesman denied involvement in the killing and blamed Hamas members for any collaboration. “Hamas is the only one to know the movement of al-Mabhouh, and from there the information went to the Israelis,” said the spokesman, Adnan Damiri.
Clearly it was a conspiracy of Mossad, Hamas, Fatah, the Iranian Republican Guard, the CIA, Al Qaeda, the Vatican, perhaps Brazil, and The Three Stooges.
