Civility is dead as terrorism is witnessed at its finest. In Israel's defense, they could easily execute a missle strike on Haniyeh. Why be covert about it now Israel? Plausible Deniability? Then again, Mel Gibson could be behind this to frame Israel.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Hamas on Monday accused Israel of a failed assassination attempt against Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh using a poison-filled letter.

Several employees in the office of Deputy Prime Minister Nasser Shaer in the West Bank city of Ramallah were hospitalized after one of them opened a letter addressed to Haniyeh. The letter contained a tissue that gave off a strange smell, filling the room and overwhelming several employees, Palestinian sources said. Seven were hospitalized, one in serious condition.

An Israeli army spokesman denied any involvement by Israeli troops or officials. "We weren't involved," said the spokesman, who declined to give his name.

Haniyeh, during a Cabinet meeting Monday in Gaza City, called the incident a "criminal and dangerous act," according to the Ramattan news agency.

He said the letter was sent from Tel Aviv and was addressed to him.

Shaer promised a full investigation, saying the tissue was sent to a lab for analysis.
