Concerning the JPOST piece which describes Mohammed Dahlan as the next possible head of the PA
“Is Mohammed Dahlan the next Palestinian president in waiting?With Palestinians potentially going to the polls in 2021, eyes are turning to Dahlan as a potential challenger to Mahmoud Abbas”.
The piece fails to remind JPOST readers: Dahlan is wanted for murder in the case of an attack on an Israeli school bus in Kfar Darom in November 2000. Dahlan’s school bus bombing left two people killed – a school teacher, Miriam Amitai and a custodian, Gavriel Biton, along with half a dozen children maimed, while seriously injuring an American citizen, Rachel Asaroff.
In response to Dahlan’s brutal attack on Jewish school children, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak dispatched Israeli planes to strafe Mr. Dahlan’s Gaza headquarters.
