Pass the popcorn: Dahlan sues Abu Mazen for corruption in the International Criminal Court

Mohammed Dahlan, the man responsible for one of the worst terror attacks of the second intifada, in which three children in one family lost limbs in a rocket attack on their school bus, is suing 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen for corruption at the International Criminal Court in the Hague. He's being represented by an Israeli law firm (Hat Tip: Mike P).
Dahlan, who currently resides in Dubai and Europe, hired an Israeli law firm to file the complaint with the International Criminal Court in The Hague, the Yedioth Ahronoth daily reported on Wednesday. The firm is run by Zaki Kamal, the deputy president of the Israel Bar Association, and his son, Kamal Kamal.
Dahlan claimed in his suit that Abbas was out to get him because he was seen as a potential competitor for the leadership of the PA.
Dahlan accused the Palestinian leader of “tyrannical behavior the utter corruption of which, along with the corruption of his family, is damaging to the Palestinian people and the authority’s institutions,” the report said.
A copy of the suit was sent to Abbas, with no response; copies were then sent to UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon, US Secretary of State John Kerry, the Human Rights Commission, the secretary of the European Union, and Quartet representative Tony Blair.
“I and my family have for a long time been subjected to terror and harassment, persecution, arrests, defamation, threats to life and damage to property,” Dahlan wrote. “The campaign against me knows no moral or legal limits, nor even national boundaries.”


Dahlan was a former Fatah leader in the Gaza Strip before the organization’s ouster by Hamas in 2007. On his arrival in the West Bank, he was blamed by colleagues for the loss of Gaza, sparking an intense rivalry began between him and Abbas. Two years ago he was expelled from the territories after Abbas suspected him of organizing a coup. Since then he has been become a wealthy businessman and one of the closest confidants of the royal family in the UAE.
I don't know what makes him think the ICC has jurisdiction, but pass popcorn....

P.S. Did you all pick up on the fact that the deputy chairman of the Israeli bar is an Arab? Some apartheid state....
