Fatah assisting the Israelis?

I suggested below that some Arab governments are quietly hoping that Israel will deal Hamas a fatal blow; now a fascinating snippet from Jeffrey Goldberg's blog suggests that Israel is getting practical help even closer to home:

I've been talking to friends of mine, former Palestinian Authority intelligence officials (ejected from power by the Hamas coup), and they tell me that not only are they rooting for the Israelis to decimate Hamas, but that Fatah has actually been assisting the Israelis with targeting information.

Update: the Jersualem Post reports that Hamas has executed "at least" 35 Fatah members suspected of collaboarting with israel.
