Israel Foils Plot To Assassinate Abbas

Times Online:
A Hamas plot to assassinate Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, has been thwarted after he was tipped off by Israeli intelligence.

Hamas’s military wing, the Izza Din Al-Qassem, had planned to kill Abbas at his office in Gaza, intelligence sources said.
Of course, if Abbas had been killed, I wonder who would have been blamed?
