Stupid Arab rumor of the day: Mossad threatened to kill Abbas

Palestine Press Agency quotes Egypt's Moheet newspaper as saying that Arab League sources allege that Mahmoud Abbas received death threats from the Mossad - unless he scuttles his unity agreement with Hamas.

Sure. Spy agencies always send threats to their intended targets, like 1920's era mobsters.

Then again, in a world where even Israeli media give credibility to bizarre conspiracy theories floated by a  pathetic anti-Israel blogger in Seattle who claims to have super-secret Mossad sources, maybe I shouldn't be so hard on Moheet.
