For some reason the link here is no longer connecting directly to the article, which doesn't seem to be on the homepage of aljazeera anymore either. I don't have much time so this was the quickest link to the article I could come up with, it's reprinted from aljazeera on a Muslim website The report is corroborated, Douglas Alexander was also interviewed by Haaretz for his statements.
