The Gaza Bombshell

I haven't had time to read the explosive Vanity Fair article on the US-Fatah coup attempt against Hamas yet, but from what I hear about it, it would confirm many of the allegations made around the time of Gaza takeover and that has been published in the Arabic press and elsewhere, not to mention some of the allusions made in the De Soto report leaked last year.

I was sent former Palestinian National Security Chief Mahmoud Dahlan's response to the article, which he obviously denies. Dahlan has long been said to be at the center of the US-Israeli-Fatah plot against Hamas.
