Hamas' conspiracy theory of the day: Dahlan assassinated Arafat!

According to the pro-Hamas Palestine Today, intelligence documents that Hamas captured in Gaza implicated Fatah "strongman" Mohammed Dahlan in the assassination of Yasir Arafat. Autotranslated:
Leaders of the Islamic Resistance Movement "Hamas accused Chancellor of the Palestinian Preventive Security Mohammed Dahlan [for] involvement in the assassination of the late leader Yasser Arafat, and the fire on the motorcade of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya, the Egyptian security delegation in Gaza.

He drew Chairman of the Legal Committee of the Palestinian Legislative Council Faraj al-Ghoul, a serious accusation to Dahlan, told "Gulf" that Hamas obtained documents serious confirm conclusively Dahlan and his involvement in the assassination of the late leader Abu Ammar.

He added that the documents Dahlan condemned corruption and the creation of "death squads", and stressed that Dahlan accused of involvement in the assassination of Arafat is not "talk čela" The saying, "We have documents current, previous and confessions of the leaders of the Preventive Security who had been arrested in Gaza recently, however, we are with the formation of a fair trial for Dahlan and his colleagues. investigation and honest and pure in this evidence and documents ", Ghoul refused any outside interference in these trials.

For his part, the spokesman for the Hamas bloc in the Palestinian parliament Egyptian mentor of the "Gulf" that Dahlan and his team behind the shooting of the Egyptian security delegation in Gaza where he was "Brigadier Sharif," one of its members, He pointed out that Dahlan is also responsible for the shooting incident at the parade Haniya at the Rafah crossing after returning from his first tour of Foreign Affairs last February, and stressed that the Egyptian Hamas welcomed the formation of the Arab League "a fact-finding committee" because it wants the truth to be revealed?, He pointed out that those who oppose it are the ones who are afraid of exposure to the facts, and emphasized that the Egyptian movement which developed University and Arab parties in the picture of what is happening on Palestinian land currently, has already warned Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, and his predecessor, the late Abu Ammar of Dahlan, He pointed out that Egyptian security delegation in Gaza "shells full details of what happened and is happening" in the Gaza Strip.

Not that I give much credence to this, but the idea that Dahlan was behind an attack on Egyptians in Gaza would tend to support my previous posting about how Egypt favors Hamas rule in Gaza to Fatah's.
