Dismissed Fatah leader and Palestinian MP Mohammed Dahlan, who lives in the United Arab Emirates, has incited Egypt to oppose Fatah-Hamas reconciliation, The New Khalij news website revealed on Friday.

Reporting senior Palestinian sources, the news website disclosed that Dahlan contacted senior Egyptian officials and incited them to damage the ongoing reconciliation understandings between Fatah and Hamas reached in Istanbul two weeks ago.

The sources claim that Dahlan told the Egyptian officials that the two Palestinian factions are working to override Cairo’s role in the Palestinian cause.

According to the sources, Dahlan tried to persuade them that Fatah and Hamas are turning to Turkey and Qatar to supersede the Egyptian role. Dahlan sees the latest rapprochement among the Palestinian factions as a threat to his party, the Democratic Reform Current.

In addition, he feels that the path to reconciliation could place him outside the Palestinian political arena as he is planning to become the head of Palestinian politics instead of Fatah, the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

  1. The worldwide BDS movement is the only effective weapon against the brutal Israeli apartheid regime because it focuses worldwide attention on the regime which the pro-Israel media, like UK state broadcaster BBC etc., keeps hidden. Noam Chomsky opposes BDS and his reasons for doing so are totally unconvincing. There are no good reasons for supporting the only effective weapon capable of forcing change on the brutal Israeli apartheid regime. Say ‘yes’ to BDS. People power!
