Maybe you didn't take that Hamas coup seriously, but Abu Mazen sure is

One could sense some skepticism in the media over Monday's report that the Shin Bet had arrested 93 Hamas members on charges of plotting a coup against the 'Palestinian Authority.'
Shin Bet officials, in issuing details today, insist that this is all true – and not an Israeli invention aimed at jamming a huge wedge between Hamas and the P.A.  The officials deny any connection with the fact that all day Monday, there was high tension over not knowing if a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas would be extended to allow for more negotiations in Cairo.
In other words, along with the report, the Shin Bet felt obligated to issue a denial that they were making the coup story up.

While the media may not have believed the Shin Bet, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen sure does.
In a statement quoted on Channel 2 News, Abbas said that the implications of the revealed plot “will be serious for the Palestinian and regional situation, especially after Israeli officials published a list and pictures of confiscated weapons."
Abbas stressed that the reports endanger the unity of the Palestinian people as its leadership tries to form a unity government.
"We are living in the shadow of the war in Gaza and under the shadow of the presence of a unity government, which is why this new information is a real danger to the unity of the Palestinian people and its future," he said, according to Channel 2 News.
Hmmm. I wonder whether Abu Mazen realizes yet that the 'unity government' is just another way Hamas is trying to take over the 'Palestinian Authority.'

What could go wrong?

I think he does take it rather seriously, and it would explain why he sent his entire family to Jordan.
