Former Fatah Strongman in Gaza Denies Meeting with Israel

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Mohammed Dahlan, the former Fatah party strongman in Gaza, denied on Thursday that he recently met with Shlomo Molcho, one of Israel’s two negotiators with the Palestinian Authority and a confidant to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

The Maariv newspaper reported that the two men met in Dubai to establish a closer relationship with Dahlan, who told European Parliament members in Brussels last month that he is planning to replace Abbas.

Abbas is in his sixth year as chairman since his term four=year term ran out following the Palestinian Authority’s first and, as of today, the only presidential election.

Given Dahan’s stated intentions in Brussels, his denial is worth as much as the word of any Palestinian Authority official.

Dahlan literally ran Gaza until Hamas overthrow the Fatah faction in a bloody militia war in 2007.

He was one of the most feared men in Gaza, known for total corruption and for close ties with Israeli leaders.

Dahlan told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency Thursday he has not met with Molcho since the late 1990s and called the Maariv report “fiction.”

PA Former Negotiator Suing Abbas in the Hague

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Former senior PLO official Mohammed Dahlan is suing Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for malicious persecution. Dahlan, a personal nemesis of the chairman, was removed from all his positions in the organization two years ago. Now he claims that Abbas is after him for publicly exposing the corruption of the chairman and of his offspring.

Dahlan is pushing an assortment of lawsuits in various European courts, according to Kol Israel, revolving around his charge that some $700 million are missing from the PA treasury.

Dahlan, who used to be head of the PLO Gaza Preventive Security Force, and participated in earlier rounds of the “peace process” resides in Dubai, where, back in May, he met with Mossad head Tamir Pardo.

On Sunday, Dahlan accused the PA Chairman of forcing “political suicide” on his nation by agreeing to renewing the talks with Israel. Dahlan criticized Abbas’ “personal” decision to go back to the peace talks with Israel in return for some dubious privileges.

Dahlan accused Abbas of making crucial decisions without the approval of his people.
