Did Hamas win Gaza, or have Dahlan-PA-US-Israel implemented a plan conceived in conspiracy? Did Dahlan-PA-Fatah mislead the nearby countries and the European Union and loot millions of dollars under the cover of building illusory military system in Gaza? Did Hamas really defeat the Fatah-PA in Gaza, or did the PA leaders leave Gaza before Hamas militants started the battle? Did Israel-US quislings infiltrate the Hamas militant resistance?

Before the media and the public opinion, the Palestinian military system of Fatah collapsed in Gaza. Over 30 thousand PA soldiers, from the “Alternative Security Forces”, “Presidential Forces”, and “National Forces” were defeated by couple of thousands of Hamas militants. The Palestinian commanders of the defeated army in Gaza were in Egypt during fighting with Hamas. Some other officers of the PA army fled over the sea to Egypt, to Israel and to Ramallah in the West Bank at the beginning of the battle, leaving behind them over 30.000 soldiers facing a small group of militant from Hamas.

The leaders of Fatah who were not in Gaza before the fighting started are: Muhammad Dahlan, a criminal and a spy for Israel and the CIA and “Assistant for National Security” of President Abu Mazen. Samir Al-Meshharawi, a member of the Revolutionary Council of the Fatah and leader of thieves and kidnappers in Gaza. He was not elected during the last Parliament election in Gaza. General Rashid Abu Shibak, the head of the “Internal Security” in Gaza and a collaborator with the Israeli intelligence, who provides Israel with the names and locations of the people in Gaza who are on the Israeli liquidation lists.

Why were the PA leaders not in Gaza, and why did the officers flee out of the city? Have Fatah-Dahlan misled the public opinion? If Hamas had really won in Gaza, then the leaders of Fatah were misleading President Mahmud Abbas, the European Union and some Arabs  countries, and are falsifying the facts on the ground in Gaza and exposing very sensitive “military” secrets, as well as looting millions of dollars from the European taxes and building their private projects.

Rashid Abu Shibak owns a big villa in Egypt, another villa in Gaza and an apartment in Ramallah. Mr. Dahlan owns a villa in Gaza, another villa in Ramallah, another villa in the Gulf, and he owns companies in different countries.

Questions for the European Union
According to Al-Quds Al-Arabi in London, information was found in buildings abandoned by the Fatah in Gaza which shows that there were up to 30.000 soldiers with the PA in Gaza, which had been trained in Egypt, Jordan and the possibly the USA. This army had hundreds of vehicles at their disposal, thousands of weapons and large quantities of ammunition. Palestine does not have the money to finance such a huge army, and the American "contributions" only account for part of what was found.

Since the Hamas was elected into the government at the beginning of 2006, and even before, various officials of the EU and European governments have overtly and publicly declared the Hamas as “terrorists” and opposed them in any way possible, and repeatedly said in TV or newspapers that they would help Israel isolate them merely for having been elected. In this way, Israel was allowed by the EU to steal millions of dollars in tax revenues which should have been used to fund the day-to-day operations of the PA, items such as salaries, schools, retirement payments, streets, canalization … and when the obvious criminality of this act became apparent, Israel gave about 20% of the stolen money to Abbas in a “magnanimous” gesture, but under conditions that this money should not reach the Hamas, never mind that Hamas was the legitimate, elected  government, and that Abbas only legitimacy comes from Israeli guns and a heavily arranged election (and the old British colonial laws kept in place by the Israelis). Given this attitute: where was, and is, the respect of the EU for democratic process ?

The results from this policy are clear for anybody to see: with the direct help of European troops stationed on the border to Egypt, the population of Gaza has been put under a siege which has resulted in widespread hunger and misery. The whole Gaza strip has in fact been converted into a huge concentration camp for its 1.5 million inhabitants, with Israeli troops shooting people at will, and the whole place infested by Dahlan’s death squads out to get those who the Israelis can’t find, and the West Bank has fared little better. All these atrocities have been supported by the leaders of European countries who should know better if they had cared to learn the correct lessons from their recent history (PDF) .

* If Palestine had no money to pay salaries of civil servants, then who paid the salaries for the army of 30.000  controlled by Abbas, Abu-Shibak and Dahlan ?

* From where does this money come: is it European money or is it the Palestinian tax money stolen by Israel ?

* How many millions has the European Union given to pay the salaries of the defeated PA army while the Palestinians in Gaza were left hungry ?

* Why was there a need to set up this huge army in Gaza ?

* What is the purpose of this huge army, according to the EU ?

* Has the European Union asked the PA and Fatah leaders about Dahlan's death squads, which are part of Palestinian security forces under control of the PA ?

* From where do the weapons and the equipment of Dahlan's death squads come, and who pays their salaries ?

* From where do the weapons and equipment for Abbas' increased "Presidential Forces" come ?

* Who paid for all these weapons and the training of these units ?

* On what legal basis, exactly, is the EU and various countries from the EU financing these forces ?

* Could it be that there is no legal basis in any country of the EU to finance military operations and Dahlan's gangs in Palestine, but rather that this is facilitated by certain persons in contravention of standing laws and in abuse of the high positions these persons occupy within the EU and their respective countries ?

* Is it not so that financing a partially illegal army and death squads in Palestine is in direct contravention of the principles enunciated in the CFSP ?

* If financing Dahlan's death squads in Palestine is against the laws and interests of the EU and its integrant countries, who or what would motivate the EU to act in this way ? Who profits ? Was the EU misled by the PA or other parties into financing operations against its own principles and interests ?

I would appreciate any answer to these questions from the involved parties, which I will of course publish.

The Palestinians don’t need 30.000 soldier in Gaza. I wrote before that we do not have a useful army to protect us from the Israeli atrocities, but that there are many “security” organizations under the command of various Palestinian “friends of Israel”. The only logical explanation for such an army is that the countries which took part in the building up and financing of this huge army had plans to murder most Palestinians in Gaza with this army.
Had it not been for the apparent incompetence of those recruited into this PA-controlled army, it would have been a murdering rampage similar to what happened under American auspices in Ruanda, where about 800.000 people were butchered in less than two weeks in 1994. But this would have be only one part in a more complicated plan, and the danger is far from over.

The European Union never thought of helping the PA to build an army for protecting the Palestinian civilians in their homeland against the Israeli occupation, what would have corresponded to the obvious interests of the EU. It was very clear since the establishment of the Abbas-Dahlan PA after Arafat’s death that the weapons which had been given to Dahlan’s army were for "internal" use, against Palestinian civilians, but not to protect against the Israeli occupation. In any case, the PA generals and other officers always hid in the basement during Israeli attacks, they never counterattacked or even defended themselves. It is interesting to note here that in the report of the DLPC (EU Parliament Delegation for relations with the Palestinian Legislative Council) from their last visit to Palestine, in April/May of 2007, they recommend (PDF) that the EU normalize relations with the PA because all the conditions imposed by the quartet were being fulfilled by both Fatah and Hamas, that the embargo on Gaza be lifted because of grave humanitarian concerns, and that the EU recommend Israel that they pay back the stolen Palestinian tax money.

Nothing of this happened, but instead the EU Presidency and high officials from certain governments in the EU have been seen in the MSM  boasting of their "support for Israel" and “lamenting” that Palestinians were so inclined towards “terrorism”, or jovially laughing about the “joke” of Olmert’s cabinet about putting Gaza on diet. The more one looks into the situation in Palestine and into what has been uncovered by the events of the last several days, the suspicions about the EU become more disquieting, because everything looks like the EU was involved in financing and organizing an army of death squads for the purpose of exterminating all Palestinians in Gaza. And the “failure” of Dahlan and Abbas has not discouraged them either. It was apparently one step in a more complicated scheme.

The Fatah-Dahlan-CIA-Israel Conspiracy
Why did Fatah let Hamas win the small battle in Gaza, and how did the Israeli intelligence infiltrate the militant Hamas ? It was not by accident that the PA and Fatah leaders were not in Gaza during the operation of the Hamas militants. It was not by accident that the PA officials from Gaza fled to Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Ramallah crossing EU- and Israeli-controlled borders at the beginning of battle with Hamas. It is known from past events that, whenever Dahlan or the Israelis arranged for the murder of somebody, Dahlan and selected people from the PA would run to Egypt for the length of these operations. Also, in “normal” times it takes on average 2 weeks for Palestinians to get an answer when they request a permit to pass the borders of Gaza for medical emergency cases, and it can take up to one month to receive an answer from the Israelis to such urgent requests. So, how did the Palestinian officers flee out of Gaza and arrive Ramallah in no time ? This could not have happened without full help of the Israelis. During “normal” times the Israel were never helpful to Palestinians. There is no mercy under their occupation. Pregnant women are dying at the Israeli borders all the time, people sick of cancer are dying at their homes because they are not allowed to go to a hospital. But the traitors around Abbas and Dahlan were allowed free and unhindered passage. What will happen after the Fatah officers hand over Gaza to Hamas? What is the real deal between Dahlan-CIA-PA-Israel and the Hamas ? Hamas did not win Gaza. In reality, Dahlan won by implementing the first stage of the CIA-Israel-PA conspiracy.

Which will be the second stage of this Dahlan-CIA-PA-Israel conspiracy ? Whatever happens, 1.5 million Palestinians live in Gaza and other further millions in the West Bank. The so-called "International Community", the European countries and the United Nations should be held responsible for any crimes and destructions which Israel will commit or cause to be committed in Gaza and the West Bank against Palestinian civilians. The smell of a conspiracy and disaster spreads out of Gaza.
The West Bank is not Gaza
Gaza is not the West Bank, and the West Bank is not Gaza. Hebron is a city in the southern part of the West Bank. It is known as a “city of Hamas”. Jenin is a city in the northern part of the West Bank, it is also known as a “city of Hamas”. These are facts on the ground, whether we like them or not. These facts have always scared the Palestinian Authority as they threaten their own power and corruption. Another fact is that the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank does not have the power to protect even their underpants. President Mahmoud Abbas and his coterie of traitors and thugs live under protection of the Israeli army, and only with permission and under protection of the Israelis can he move around the Palestinian cities and between the West Bank and Gaza.

The question is, if the death squad leader Muhammad Dahlan continues “assisting” President Abbas in the West Bank and implementing this conspiracy, what kind of disaster will this criminal bring upon the Palestinian nation?

The Hamas is not weak in the West Bank. The crimes perpetrated by the Fatah death squads against the activist organization of Hamas does not confirm that Fatah is strong and Hamas is weak. The activities of Dahlan’s death squads in the past and the ongoing "revenge actions" against Hamas in the West bank are done under the protection of the Israeli military. And, the last election confirmed that Abbas’ Fatah is widely seen as corrupt. Another sign of how weak Abbas really is, is how he was elected President: he was elected in a set-up election where he was competing with no-name candidates from Fatah, and Hamas was excluded from that election. Muhammad Dahlan arrived in Ramallah after the first stage of his conspiracy was over in Gaza. According to the new situation brought by Dahlan-CIA-Israel, Dahlan will not be able to enter Gaza under Hamas authority. Because of what he did he is the number one in the black list of the people wanted by Hamas.

Palestinians have recommended that Dahlan ask for asylum in the USA or Israel “if he is a victim of Hamas”, for that is better for him and for the Palestinians. Angry street protests “welcomed” Dahlan, Rashid Abu Shibak, and Samer Al-Meshharawi in Ramallah as many Palestinians want these people put to trial and punished as traitors for their past actions. Dahlan met some of his officers who had fled from Gaza and settled with their families at the Grand Park hotel in Ramallah. The hotel is full of these escaped Generals and other officials from the PA who abandoned their compounds in Gaza with the help of the Israelis. Many of them own luxurious homes in Ramallah.

US-Israel celebrates the winner of first stage of the Conspiracy
Abbas PA declared a State of Emergency by the end of last week and dismissed the Hamas-Fatah unity government. After this important declaration, the U.S. Consul General Jacob Walles said that the United States plans to lift a ban on direct aid to the new emergency  government. The second reaction came from Israel. The Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said that a new emergency PA government, would be a “partner for peace” in negotiations with Israel. In the meantime, Olmert has gone to Washington, presumably to give Bush instruction on how to continue. This was the second Stage of the Dahlan-PA-CIA-Israel conspiracy.

Abbas’ authority: withheld when the people need it, used when the CIA-Israel want it
In January 2007, President Abbas closed his ears when the representatives of the Palestinian women organizations visited his headquarter Al-Muqataa in Ramallah, asking that he use his authority to issue a statement punishing and forbidding the “honor killings” of Palestinian women by their families. Over hundred young women and girls were killed by their families during the last few months in Palestine because of perceived slights at the honor of their families. Many hundreds have been killed during the last two years. As the situation in Palestine has deteriorated, these murders of women by their own families have increased dramatically. In any case, Abbas denied the women organizations and the Palestinian women his help, and the murders of women continue increasing under the watchful eyes of this darling of the West.

There are no civil laws in the Palestinian cities and Abbas’ PA does not protect civilians. There are many crimes, and criminals occupy the PA organizations. Some of these criminals are assisting President Abbas for security, information, media, and in the central committee of Fatah. These criminals around Abbas are looting the donations for the Palestinian nation made by other countries, and selling these goods for profit; many of these persons are involved in corruption. There is also no justice in Palestine. Still under Arafat, Abbas promised to dismiss these criminals during his Presidential campaign. As soon as he became President, he gathered these criminals from all sides around him in his presidential headquarters.

On November 13, 2005, the PA Ministerial Council annulled the municipal elections in Hebron, which would have been held on December 15, 2005. The decision was made after Hamas won the municipal elections all over the West Bank. Before that, the last municipal election in Hebron were held in 1976 under the Israeli occupation. On April 15, 2007 President Abbas used his authority to appoint Mr. Khaled Iseleh the major of Hebron. Mr. Iseleh is a business man who has made some good business with his Israeli friends in the past. They are partners in some projects, like the so-called “Hebron electricity Project. 

President Abbas did not use his authority to dismiss some spies posing as engineers and workers in the Hebron Municipality. Some of these spies were kidnapped during the Intifada by Palestinians investigating their connections with the Israeli occupation. These spies stole project funds from the of UNDP, and they helped the Israeli occupation to steal and use municipality properties in the Hebron city area H2 for use of the illegal settlements. These people also helped the Jewish settlers to steal city land near the Beit Hadassah settlement in Al-Shuhada street by either looking away or issuing fraudulent sales permits, and to establish a "Jews-only" kindergarten in that place. President Abbas received hundreds letters petitioning him to stop this awful situation in Hebron, but never did Mr. President make use of his authority to do this, his power always slept when it came to the needs of Palestinians.

The suspicion is that the second stage of this conspiracy will be that Hamas shoots some rockets at Israel so as to give them an “excuse” to bomb Gaza flat – “Palestinians” from Lebanon have already done so - while the upper Hamas hierarchy escapes to Egypt leaving poorly armed fighters there to be liquidated together with many other civilians. Israel’s new-old minister of “defense”, Barak, has already announced that they are contemplating a full-scale invasion of Gaza with 20.000 troops, air force, hundreds of tanks … At the same time, the Hamas death squads, under protection from the IDF, will kill everybody on the Israeli hit lists in the West Bank. The only peace which Israelis know and understand is the peace of the cemeteries, and this is why Olmert called Abbas’ new “emergency” government “partners for peace”. With the help of the USA, Europe, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, possibly millions of Palestinians will now be butchered, as has always been intended.

To clarify my position before Hamas and Fatah
Most of the Hamas militants, just like their Fatah counterparts, are criminals and extremists. Both organizations are infiltrated by the Israeli intelligence system. There were some good people among both groups, but the positive members of both groups have long since been murdered or jailed by the Israelis, or isolated by the PA. There is no illusion regarding Hamas among most Palestinians either, it is true they were elected, but this only because they were perceived as the lesser evil. I experienced good things and bad things from both groups. Hamas people threw foul eggs at me in Hebron during my work, and threatened to throw Molotov cocktails at me if I didn’t wear the Hijab. Of course I did not wear Hijab to please these extremists, I started wearing a miniskirt after their threats. And the PA presidential staff once stole a tape recorder from me after I recorded some compromising material about Abu Al-Sud, a relative of the former President Arafat, and the partners of Abu Al-Sud threatened me with death if I ever spoke. People from the Fatah also once tried to kill me in Ramallah after I published a small article about corruption. Whether Fatah or Hamas do terrible things to me and many other Palestinians, I will not stop writing.
