Escape into Sinai?

On Tuesday, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen accused the Hamas leadership of escaping into Sinai in ambulances during Operation Cast Lead.
Speaking during his first visit to the West Bank city of Jenin since he took office, Abbas said, “Hamas is making up pretexts to avoid conciliation agreement because they are happy with their emirate in Gaza.”

Abbas reiterated that he refuses to use force to end what he called the “Hamas coup” in the Gaza Strip. “This coup must come to an end through any means except the use of force. The means could be dialogue, and negotiations, but we will never agree to open fire on our own people,” he said.

Abbas also called on Hamas to accept new elections. “Come to the ballots through which you gained your legitimacy, to find out whether this legitimacy will be renewed or not. I will be the first one to give congratulations if the answer will be positive.”

In an unprecedented remark, Abbas accused Hamas leaders of fleeing to Sinai Peninsula in ambulances when the Gaza strip was under Israeli fire last winter. He also suggested that Hamas was responsible for provoking Israel’s war against the Gaza Strip. “Two weeks before the war, we telephoned Hamas leadership in order to extend the ceasefire.”
It's curious to see Abu Bluff admit that the 'Palestinians' use ambulances to transport terrorists - have to file that one away for the future. It's also curious that this is the first time he's been to Nablus (Shchem) since he took office in 2004. It's just so far away from Ramallah.

But no, the Hamas leadership didn't hide in Sinai. It was in a bunker underneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City and everyone knew it. Unfortunately, then-Prime Minister Olmert didn't have the you-know-what's to do something about it.

Fatah has accepted the reconciliation deal. Hamas still has yet to file a response but it can't be happy after Abbas criticized them for a terrorist practice.
