WikiLeaks: Suleiman vowed to prevent Hamas rule in Gaza

Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman promised Israel in 2005 that he would prevent Hamas' rise to power in the Gaza Strip, according to a document leaked to the WikiLeaks website and published by Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.


According to the memo, the then-Egyptian intelligence minister told Israeli defense official Amos Gilad during a meeting six years ago that he would "do all in his power to sabotage the Gaza elections in order to prevent a Hamas victory." (Elior Levy)
