Haaretz reported Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday harshly criticized the Islamic Hamas movement for seizing control in the Gaza Strip last week, and branding its members as "murderous terrorists" who carried out a "coup."
This is unlike Abbas's murderous terrorists in Fatah.Speaking Wednesday in a televised address to the Palestinian people, Abbas accused Hamas of attacking national symbols during its takeover of Gaza.... "There is no dialogue with those murderous terrorists," Abbas said.
Something Israel discoveren applies to both Hamas and Fatah.... Abbas accused Hamas of trying to assassinate him when he planned a visit to Gaza a month ago, digging a tunnel under a road where his car was to pass and trying to fill it with 250 kilograms of explosives. He said he received videotapes of the operation, showing militants with Hamas signs on their shirts carrying out the work. He dismissed Hamas claims that the explosives tunnel was aimed at Israelis.
Who seldom drive on that road."I have sent these tapes to all the Arab countries, to show how much this dark movement is acting," he said.
What was their response?
