"Gaza – Well informed sources in Gaza revealed that there calls within certain Palestinian political quarters for a policy of physical liquidation of political opponents if talks fail to produce desired results.
Those sources talked about scenarios for the assassination of Ismail Haneyya, the PA Premier, whom they consider to be a hurdle in the face of reaching a final agreement with Israel liquidating the Palestinian question.
The sources pointed the finger of accusation at Muhammad Dahlan in particular, whom the sources described as an influential man as a former head of the preventive security who has his own militia and has got a personal interest in frustrating any possible harmony between the PA president Mahmoud Abbas and the PA government of Hamas.
The sources cited past meetings between Dahlan and Israeli security officers in Rome in January 1994 to discuss plans to contain Hamas.
45-year-old Dahlan was praised personally by George Bush, but Col. Muneer Meqdah, a prominent Fatah military leader described Dahlan as the most dangerous man for the Palestinian issue because of his secret relations with foreign powers."
