split in Hamas?

Only the Qatari-funded, Al-Quds Al-`Arabi, has reported extensively on a growing rift in Hamas between the Mish`al cash leadership in Qatar and the Qassam organization in Gaza.  The paper reported that the Qassam commanders wrote to Mish`al strongly protesting the statements by Qaradawi and calling for a public rebuke.  They have also, according to the paper, reaffirmed their alliance with Hizbullah and Iran.
