PLO calls Qaddoumi 'deranged'

The PLO called exiled leader Farouk Qaddoumi 'deranged' in response to his accusing 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen and former Gaza commander Muhamed Dahlan of being involved in the 'assassination' of Yasser Arafat. Qaddoumi declined an offer from Arafat to return to Gaza in 1994.
The PLO Executive Committee, a key decision-making body, said its members were planning to hold an emergency meeting soon to discuss Qaddoumi's allegations and the possibility of taking legal and disciplinary measures against him.

The committee described Qaddoumi's accusations as "hysterical," adding that the veteran PLO official had "lost his political and psychological balance." It said that Qaddoumi was a man suffering from a "sick mind," saying that if he had evidence to back up his charges against Abbas and Dahlan he should have made them public when Arafat died five years ago.

Dahlan responded by hinting that Qaddoumi was a senile man who is not to be taken seriously.

"Apparently his advanced age is responsible for the remarks he made," Dahlan said, adding that he consulted with Abbas about the most appropriate way to respond to Qaddoumi.
Qaddoumi has apparently developed quite a conspiracy theory.
Qaddoumi dropped a bombshell earlier this week when he told reporters in the Jordanian capital of Amman that Arafat had handed him before his death a protocol of a meeting where Abbas, Dahlan, former prime minister Ariel Sharon and US intelligence officers allegedly planned to assassinate the former PA chairman.

Qaddoumi presented the reporters with a summary of the ostensible protocol in which Sharon allegedly told Abbas and Dahlan that they must also work toward eliminating the political and military leaders of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Fatah's armed wing, the Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Sharon was also quoted - according to the "protocol" - as telling Abbas and Dahlan that the first step should be to kill Arafat with poison.

Many Palestinians are still convinced that Arafat, who died of an unknown disease in November 2004, had been poisoned by some of his top aides on instructions from Israel.
Well maybe if the PLO grew up a little bit and told everyone how Arafat really died, they'd stop having others develop wild conspiracy theories.

Arafat died of AIDS after years of sick gay behaviour, which is typical Arab

If the Palestinians air their dirty linen in front of the world and act like kooks, why should they be rewarded with a state?
