Abbas must be using the services of American dysinformation specialists! Hamas was democratically elected and Abbas and his gangs couldn't swallow the results. They did all they can to make the elected government look bad. They cowtowed to the USA & Europe when they refused to meet government ministers who had anything to do with Hamas. In effect, Abbas & his Fatah mercenaries conducted a political coup against the government. So it is funny that they now accused Hamas of executing a "military coup" in Gaza. Sounds like American textbook propaganda whereby you commit a crime then accuse the other side of doing it. 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.
