Fatah launched a scathing attack on Tony Blair and called on Hamas to stop dealing with him.
Fatah spokesman Osama Qawassmeh said that Blair does not hold any official title “since he was fired by the Qaurtet.” Qawassmeh accused Blair of playing a “suspicious role” by trying to reach a long-term truce agreement between Hamas and Israel.
“Blair is acting as a broker to obstruct matters and we don’t know what his intentions are,” the Fatah spokesman said. He urged Hamas to stop dealing with Blair and halt all negotiations with Israel. The spokesman said that Hamas should coordinate directly with the PLO.
