    Dear John, No insult intended, but you are far far away from the reality at hand and you, and most of the rest of the world are playing into the hands of the people that intentionally leaked the information to Wiki-Leaks. Do you think that the Palestinian Authority is reigning in Hammas as a favor to Israel? If so you are extremely naive. The papers only tell you half truths. Hammas and the PA hate each other to the extreme. It just does not serve their interests to publicize the realities - such as Hamas throwing PA people off high-rise buildings during the Israeli Gaza incursion (and of course adding their corpses as statistics against Israel). And I dare say that the PA is not less brutal against Hammas in the West Bank. So why all these leaks and why now? These leaks will severely compromise the standing of the already weak Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, this same PA which is pretty much hated already by much of the West Bank population (another fact on the ground that the media does not like to mention). It is no mistake that Abbas has put off elections in his controlled territories for quite some time now. Along comes an Arab entity that supports Hammas over the PA, release the Wiki-Leaks, and voila, John, the rest of the world and the Arabs start pointing fingers at Israel and at Abbas for his weakness,,,,, with the aim of creating more havoc in the region. You are being played John.
