PA accuses the US of establishing

the radical Islamic ISIS terror movement

in order to destabilize 

and take control of the Middle East

 

by Itamar Marcus


The Palestinian Authority official daily has published five articles in the last six weeks accusing the United States of establishing the radical Islamic movement Islamic State (ISIS or IS) that has conquered vast territory in Syria and Iraq in recent months. ISIS has declared itself a Caliphate, thereby claiming religious authority over all Muslims; its goal is to bring much of the Middle East, including Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Kuwait, and Cyprus under its control. To this end, ISIS has used extreme terror tactics, including decapitations, crucifixions and mass murders that were filmed and posted on YouTube.


The articles claim that the US has a long term goal of controlling the Arab-Muslim states by dividing them through conflict and wars. ISIS's war and other conflicts are all said to be the work of the US:


"The wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Palestine were planned by the US in order to protect its interests... The ISIS, Islamic Front, and Al-Nusra Front (i.e., all radical Islamists) are Muslims from various countries the US is using to fight in Iraq and Syria, in order to fragment the unity of these two Arab countries... We are now more aware that the Americans - who want to fight for their own interests using Islamic, Jewish and Christian believers - are truly the head of the snake."

"ISIS, the perpetrators of atrocities and the groups that hoist the banner of religion seem to be raising their weapons in sync with Washington, and fight the US verbally, but in practice are killing their enemies.  Is this a coincidence, or was it planned ahead of time?"

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 14, 2014]
 
"The radical terrorists of ISIS and those like them, who were created by Israel and the US, are paving the way for Israel to act like them."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, August 3, 2014]

As Palestinian Media Watch reported in June, the current editor in chief of the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida was appointed by the presidential decree of Mahmoud Abbas.

 

Fatah Central Committee Member Abbas Zaki made a similar accusation to the Palestine News Network, calling ISIS a "new creation" of the United States:

 

"[The US,] whose most advanced pawns include Israel and its new creation, ISIS, whose goal is to destroy the Arab world and eliminate the Palestinian cause."

[Palestine News Network, Aug. 7, 2014]


PMW has documented that the Palestinian Authority frequently publishes libels and vitriol directed against the United States.


The following are the 5 articles published in the official PA daily, as well as Abbas Zaki's statement that accuse the US of establishing ISIS and plotting to take control of the Middle East:


Headline: "The objectives of Kerry's last tour"

Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily and advisor to former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on national affairs

"[US Secretary of State] John Kerry's tour of the region was not made out of concern for Iraq's unity and territory... but in order to implement the [American administration's] plot of dividing Iraq... As everyone knows, the US, along with the countries of the region, created many organizations that blame others of heresy, among them the ISIS or the Islamic State of Iraq and Basham, for the purpose of establishing the religious, sectarian and ethnic conflict."

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 30, 2014]

 

Op-ed by Hafez Al-Barghouti, regular columnist and former editor in chief of Al-Hayat Al-Jadida

"I have not found any text confirming that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in her book Hard Choices, had written that ISIS was a US pawn, and that Washington was supposed to have recognized it  [the Islamic State] last year, right after it was declared. But this does not negate the fact that Washington is behind many of the disasters [plaguing] the Arab region. Over a decade ago, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright indicated, in an article, the existence of elements in the Arab region that could be made to fight one another in a way that would serve US interests, and that there was no need for direct US military intervention. After her, Condoleezza Rice introduced [the concept of] what is referred to as 'creative anarchy.' Later, in 2006, former CIA director James Woolsey spoke of the need to create an Islam suitable for the West, and later, to cause Muslims to fight each other, at which point the West would overrun them and defeat them.

 

There are many proofs of US involvement in the present disasters in the region, and the present plot is that of dismantling - that is, the dismantling of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Egypt was supposed to have been dismantled, and at present this is happening to Yemen and several Gulf countries, parallel to the establishment of a Kurdish state in northern Iraq and northeastern Syria.


And there is no better proof of this than the fact that [while] Washington rejected Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki's calls for intervention against ISIS when it started to threaten Baghdad, it [the US] did intervene when ISIS began to threaten Iraqi Kurdistan.

 

ISIS, the perpetrators of atrocities and the groups that hoist the banner of religion seem to be raising their weapons in sync with Washington, and fight the US verbally, but in practice are killing their enemies.  Is this a coincidence, or was it planned ahead of time?"

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 14, 2014]
 

Op-ed by Ibrahim Abd Al-Majid

 

"They destroyed the mosque of our lord Jonah [the prophet] in Nineveh. ISIS blew it up, along with all the other mosques that contained shrines of saints... And so we have been living, for around half a century, in a new age of ignorance of religion.  This [ignorance] has peaked in [recent] years, with the radical terrorists of ISIS and those like them, who were created by Israel and the US, and are paving the way for Israel to act like them."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, August 3, 2014]


Headline: "Netanyahu and Liberman, the Jewish ISIS leaders"

Op-ed by Muharram Barghouti

"After the coffins of US soldiers returned from Afghanistan and Iraq, and before that, from Lebanon, [the US] adopted a new method [to protect US interests]: exploitation and creation of Islamic, Christian and Jewish religious extremism, in order to fight [Arabs] with it rather than with its own soldiers. Taking a closer look at what is happening in the region we can see that the wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Palestine were planned by the US in order to protect its interests... The US is using extremists as human shields fighting on its behalf, so that American soldiers will no longer be in danger of returning home in coffins. The ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq), Islamic Front, and Al-Nusra Front (i.e., all radical Islamists) are Muslims from various countries the US is using to fight in Iraq and Syria, in order to fragment the unity of these two Arab countries...

We are now more aware that the Americans - who want to fight for their own interests using Islamic, Jewish and Christian believers - are truly the head of the snake... ISIS's declaration that it will fight Israel only after it has finished with the infidels merely proves that ISIS in Syria and Iraq will not fight the Jewish ISIS, because the plot is the same plot, the boss is the same boss, and the goal is the same goal: to tear [apart] the Arab homeland and gain control of its resources - through the blood of others."

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 16, 2014]


Op-ed by Adli Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida

"It is Israel that, whenever it gets bored, returns to Gaza with military aircraft to destroy homes and facilities and kill children. Where is the help, you [Hezbollah] sectarian liars who collaborate with the Persian Ayatollahs... hostile [ones], and your ilk - the CIA's collaborators from the ISIS -who destroy revolutions and give nations a bad name?"

[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 10, 2014]
 

"Fatah Central Committee Member and Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China Abbas Zaki said the Palestinian language and terminology [employed] with the Zionist enemy must be changed, as whoever has seen the extent of the destruction, the ruins and the limbs torn from the pure bodies of our people in Gaza understands the goals of the Zionist attack (i.e., Operation Protective Edge) - [namely,] to exploit the terrible situation in the Arab world that has resulted from the lack of bravery, enthusiasm and willpower among those [countries] who have made subjugation to the US their way [of life]... [The US,] whose most advanced pawns include Israel and its new creation, ISIS, whose goal is to destroy the Arab world and eliminate the Palestinian cause."

[Palestine News Network, Aug. 7, 2014]
