-- Haaretz had many articled that sopke of high-level Fatah offcials asking for permission to transfer weapons & trained soldiers to Gaza. What were they planning to do with that, hold a military parade? Hamas saw the plans being put in place for a military confrontation and they executed a preemptive strike. -- And it is not so idiotic to think that parts of Fatah collaborated with Hamas. Why did they leave so fast? So it is pretty obvious that any Abbas gang would loose the next elections even more.
