During a Jordanian television debate on the legacy of Fatah, Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas's movement, a Palestinian-Jordanian political analyst lost his temper and said that Fatah was "controlled by a bunch of spies, who killed their father [Arafat]."

The analyst, Muhammad Al-Tamimi, blasted the "treacherous, collaborating leadership" of Fatah and charged that it was "directly connected to the Mossad."

He further claimed that Abbas is of Iranian origins. "From this pulpit," he bellowed, "I hereby declare the dismissal of this leadership."

Despite repeated efforts to stem the tirade, the TV host was unable to placate Al-Tamimi, and the show drew to a close, with the host thanking his viewers amid shouting from his irascible guest.

The show aired on the Jordanian 7 Stars TV channel on August 14, and was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
