Dahlan's "Success"

I can't find it now but a decade ago or so, NEWSWEEK selected, along with Tzachi Hanegbi, Muhammed Dahlan as "most probable to succeed"

Read on:-

Muhammad Dahlan, the former strongman of Gaza who was among those blamed for Fatah’s stinging military defeat there last month, resigned Thursday as national security adviser to the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas.

The resignation was little more than a formality, because Mr. Abbas issued a decree dissolving his national security council immediately after the Hamas takeover of Gaza five weeks ago.

An official in Mr. Abbas’s office, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak for attribution, said that he did not understand why Mr. Dahlan sent the letter of resignation now, but that the president accepted it anyway.
