PA daily: US behind civil war in Syria and supports the killings
Share |
Official PA daily accuses the US
of being behind civil wars in Syria, Egypt,
and 9/11 attacks

US seeks massacre of Syrian civilians

PA daily:
“Events of mass killings do not upset [America]
because they themselves have used killing as a means
and a strategy to attain global domination"

PA daily:
“There is nothing in international relations more offensive or painful than the American invasion and the Americans’ barbaric behavior… The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria
and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked
to have the massacres and destruction continue”

PA daily:
“After the destruction of Iraq and the actions to divide it,
this attempt [by the US] is now repeating itself in Syria”

PA daily:
"Syria is being exhausted, so its characteristics
as a state disappear, until there is
an appropriate political party,
a friend and outgrowth of the Americans,
to take over the government"

PA daily:
"There is an American-Israeli trend
to re-divide the Arab people's nations
according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity"

PA daily:
"... the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events
asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it,
and that it was not an internal American action"

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Since the beginning of what is called the ‘Arab Spring’, the official Palestinian Authority daily has been publishing opinion pieces accusing the US and Israel of being behind the civil wars in the Middle East in order to divide and weaken Arab states and strengthen American power. The deaths in the Arab world, including those in Syria following the chemical attack, are presented as actions in line with US policy. The official PA daily wrote today:
“Events of mass killings do not upset [America] because they themselves have used killing as a means and a strategy to attain global domination… This is a tyranny and an effort whose goal is to divide every country… Americans aspire to topple the nation states that appeared in the Arab world after WWII.”
 
The threatened US airstrike is likewise being presented as a continuation of the American policy whose goal is, according to the PA daily, “to re-divide the Arab people's nations according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity..." Worse yet, the US is being presented by the PA daily as a bloodthirsty imperialist country seeking the death of Arab civilians:
“There is nothing in international relations more offensive or painful than the American invasion and the Americans’ barbaric behavior… The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue.”
 
The PA daily’s demonization of the US has been a constant theme for some time. Former editor-in-chief of the official PA daily Hafez Barghouti wrote a few months ago:
"What is happening in Syria is that it is being exhausted, so that its characteristics as a state disappear, until there is an appropriate political party, a friend and outgrowth of the Americans, to take over the government."
 
A regular columnist in the same daily wrote about the turmoil in Egypt:
"What is happening now in Cairo is a warning [sign] for the capabilities of the forces waiting to destabilize Egyptian society, erase its national identity, and turn large sectors of society against the state, as part of a decision that seems similar to the US Intelligence's decision to mobilize tens of thousands of Iranians in the streets of Tehran in order to overthrow Muhammad Mosaddeq's government in the early 1950s."
 
The turmoil and sectarian unrest in Iraq today is being presented as something the US intended for Iraq and now is imposing on Syria:
“After the destruction of Iraq and the actions to divide it, this attempt is now repeating itself in Syria.”
 
This demonization of the US by the official PA daily continues unabated following the announcement last week that the US has pledged an additional $148 million to the PA’s general budget. It should be noted that the writers in the PA daily are paid their salaries from this same budget that the US is funding.

The following are longer excerpts of these and additional accusations from articles in the official PA daily, claiming that the US and Israel conspire to divide and harm Arab countries and rule over them. In addition, the accusation that the US was behind the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11, is repeated:

America uses "killing as a strategy to attain global domination"
Article by Adli Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for the official PA daily:
"We do not and will not support an American bombing of Syria... There is no logic in agreeing that Americans are entitled to appoint themselves as those responsible for justice... Americans have a well-defined role that they are devoted to: To obstruct justice, to provide a base for oppression, and to support tyranny, when doing so is in their interest. Events of mass killings do not upset them because they themselves have used killing as a means and a strategy to attain global domination...
The most severe aspect of blatant American interference in the Syrian conflagration is their hijacking an inevitable achievement - freedom and the sweeping away of tyranny - and claiming credit for it themselves, as if they are responsible for fulfilling the hopes of nations ... This is a tyranny and an effort whose goal is to divide every country... Americans aspire to topple the nation states that appeared in the Arab world after WWII."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 1, 2013]

“Assad was destroying Syria, and this is what they [US] had hoped for”
Op-ed by regular columnist Adli Sadeq:
“There is nothing in international relations more offensive or painful than the American invasion and the Americans’ barbaric behavior. Likewise, nothing torments the soul more than airspace and border violations of a sister state, and its being bombarded…
You say: ‘The Americans have their own goals and they don’t launch wars for the sake of people and their rights.’ We’ll tell you this [is true] and more … and we’ll examine the motives of the Americans, who for almost three years allowed the Syrians to be massacred en masse and suddenly now understand that there are people in Syria who need their ‘protection’…
The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue. The Americans knew that the crazy Al-Qaeda would fill the field of operations and become easy prey. They knew that what remains undestroyed or unharmed in Syria is the arsenal of chemical weapons… the enemy will also not be pleased with its remaining, especially since a weapon of this type could be sold in ounces on the black market, and herein lies the danger!…
It is the Israelis who most likely warned the Americans about the approach of the harvest [i.e., the destruction], after the seeding by fire was complete, the houses were burned and the smoke billowed, and Syria reached a state in which it will need decades to dress its wounds. This - because the Americans are coordinating actions with Israel.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 29, 2013]

America attempting to divide and destroy Syria, as it destroyed Iraq
Op-ed by regular columnist Adel Abd Al-Rahman:
“UN reports indicate that it is the Takfir forces [those defining other Muslims as unbelievers] who used chemical weapons against the masses in Eastern Ghouta [in Syria] and not the [Assad] regime... Despite this, the US insists, as it insisted that Iraq was holding weapons of mass destruction on the eve of its attack and occupation of the country in 2003… And after the destruction of Iraq and the actions to divide it, this attempt is now repeating itself in Syria… The ones who undoubtedly used this internationally prohibited weapon are Takfir opposition activists and mercenaries from Turkey, Qatar, America and Israel.
The interference of the US, Britain, France, Germany and Turkey, and some Arab [states] means additional destruction and death for the Arab-Syrian people. Furthermore, the number of victims that will be slayed by this Western war force will be tenfold the number that has fallen until now. This contradicts the most basic human rights, utterly contradicts the sovereignty of the states, even in its formal meaning in the age of barbaric American Globalization… It is possible that one of the scenarios for this new American-European direction towards an attack in Syria, will be to surround the enormous Egyptian achievement [against the Muslim Brotherhood] and [conduct] operations to cause it to fail by tearing Syria apart, as a direct continuation of what happened in Iraq, and afterwards, continuing the process of ripping apart in the Lebanese front.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 31, 2013]

Senior PLO official warns the US not to attack Syria
Headline: “Tayseer Khaled: ‘We will stand by the Syrian nation and [we] warn about the consequences of the aggression against Syria’”
“Tayseer Khaled, a member of the PLO Executive Committee and the PFLP Politburo, warned about the dangerous consequences if the imperialist US and its allies in London, Paris, and Ankara carry out a military attack against Syria, since it is now clear that it is aimed at hitting 53 strategic sites in different Syrian areas.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 30, 2012]

US, Israel and the Muslim Brotherhood "hijacked" "the revolution" in Egypt
Op-ed by regular columnist Adel Abd Al-Rahman:
Headline: "Gaza's fate after Morsi"
"Hours separate between Egypt and the defining moment of its modern history, when it will free itself from the Muslim Brotherhood organization's rule and turn over a new leaf in the history of the magnificent Egyptian nation and wake from the coma of defeats that have befallen it as a result of the hijacking of the revolution by the [Muslim] Brotherhood organization, the USA and Israel."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 3, 2013]

US policy is to help radical Muslims take over the Arab World
Op-ed by former editor-in-chief of the PA daily, Hafez Barghouti:
"What is happening in Syria is that it is being exhausted, so that its characteristics as a state disappear, until there is an appropriate political party, a friend and outgrowth of the Americans, to take over the government. This is [happening] because at the moment, the long arm belongs to the Jabhat Al-Nusra [group] and the other forces, and the Muslim Brotherhood organization has not been able to gain dominance... In practice, the American policy is still working to impose the Muslim Brotherhood's rule on the Arab region."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 13, 2013]

US sponsored Arab Spring to create a "new Islam" that will be their ally
Op-ed by former editor-in-chief of the PA daily, Hafez Barghouti:
Headline: "Being aided by the Americans"
"Reality is that Washington sees the collapse of the [Muslim Brotherhood General] Guide rule in Egypt as the collapse of the Arab Spring plan, which it sponsors and tries to spread - not only in Arab countries but also in all Islamic countries. This is done for the purpose of creating a new, recruited Islam that will be its ally and relieve it of the trouble of fighting the Salafist Jihadists... Therefore, the Americans are careful to distance the Egyptian army from forceful intervention in the Egyptian crowds' struggle, as if they do not notice the human flood in Egypt's cities, which demands change and [demands] to return the revolution to its people after the [Muslim] Brotherhood stole it."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 3, 2013]

Israel and US created Jihad organizations and purposely caused division in the Arab world
Op-ed by regular columnist Adel Abd Al-Rahman:
In the beginning of the article the writer explains why the renewal of relations between Israel and Turkey is in Israel's, Turkey's and the US' interests and adds:
"...That being the case, settling the dispute is necessary to both Turkey and Israel and first of all to America. This [is the case] because of the region's lack of stability and the growing effect of the Jihad organizations, who are blaming people of heresy (they were created by the American, Israeli, European and Turkish-Arab security services), some of them stopped obeying and started threatening the region's security. In addition, there is an American-Israeli trend to re-divide the Arab people's nations according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity, because in their opinion the Sykes-Picot agreement, signed in 1916, can no longer protect the interests of the West and Israel. This required dismantling the nation-state and creating small states, divided according to ethnic group, religion and ethnicity."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 26, 2013]

US controls Jihadists' slaughter in Arab countries
Op-ed by regular columnist Fuad Abu Hajla:
"Since the fall of the Soviet Union and the collapse of the socialist bloc in Europe, the United States has been striving to create a new straw man whose existence would justify all its wars, all its conspiracies and its policy of supporting oppression.
At that stage the Americans decided to activate their strategic allies. They urged Islamist movements to commit atrocities that tarnished the image of Islam and Muslims in the world, and allowed Washington to replace the Soviet threat, as it were, with an imaginary Islamic threat. [Thus] began the 'war against terrorism' that overthrew progressive pan-Arab regimes and culminated with the conquest of Arab states. But it did not put an end to even one terrorist organization from among the organizations to whom the United States had extended its long-distance sponsorship and for whom it had provided fertile ground to broaden and expand...
That is how we and the whole world became accustomed to seeing pictures of cold-blooded murder and handcuffed hostages slaughtered with swords wielded by 'Jihadists'...
It seems as if Washington has still not got all it wanted out of these lunatics, and so it allows them to act freely and move from arena to arena in order to provide new despicable examples that substantiate the unjust image of Islam in the world. They are still murdering in Syria and they are still kidnapping and terrorizing in Algeria. They are in all the other Arab states­ even if many of their cells are still dormant, to be awakened only when given an American green light."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 21, 2013]

The Muslim Brotherhood "hijacked the revolution in Egypt" with help from US and Israel
Op-ed by member of the Fatah leadership in Gaza, Yahya Rabah:
"Here we are today, starting the decisive battle and approaching the great victory, by renewing the revolution in Egypt that was hijacked by the Muslim Brotherhood with the support of the devils on earth... The entire nation is waiting for Egypt, for Egypt's youth in the revolution movement, in the June 30 Front, in all the opposition groups in Egypt and for the new Egypt's generations, because Egypt... has decided to restore its Islamic religion from the distorting and hate-filled hijackers (i.e., the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups). It has decided to protect the nation's affairs and shatter the deals made under cover of darkness between the Muslim Brotherhood, the Americans and the Israelis."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 1, 2013]

PA daily op-ed: America was behind the 9/11 attacks
Op-ed by columnist Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher:
"'History is a great lie written by the victors' - said Napoleon Bonaparte, the source of dubious historical writing and father of Freemasonry in France. If so, is the history planted in us through TV and the standard educational curriculum indeed true? The source of this history is the West - the victor ever since the fall of Andalusia (Muslim Spain)! ...Our history is replete with lies, from lies about the corrupt [Caliph] Harun Al-Rashid, which ignore the sources indicating that he dedicated one year to pilgrimage [to Mecca] and one year to Jihad (i.e., he was a good Muslim), to the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons, which was mentioned in the Illuminati game cards ten years before it took place, and in over 15 Zionist and Freemason Hollywood-produced films in the 1990s. The method of repeating [the lies] over and over has authenticated false facts. Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor that people would be competing to belong to, and not a disgrace punishable by law. Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once about brawls they started in bars, while Hitler hated alcohol and was not addicted to it. He used to go to sleep early and wake up early, and was very organized. These facts have been turned upside down as well, and Satan has been dressed with angels' wings..."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 18, 2013]
 
PA MP: Peace talks are intended to hide Israel’s involvement in attack on Syria
 
“[PA] MP Bassam Al-Salehi, the Secretary General of the People’s Party, said that the US and Israel had already planned the military aggression against Syria and other states in the region, and that the American administration’s efforts to renew [Palestinian] negotiations [with Israel] at all costs was aimed at hiding this [fact]. In a press release Al-Salehi said that the creation of a false environment of ongoing peace-talks with Israel was aimed at helping to justify Israel’s involvement in this (i.e., attack on Syria), together with a number of Arab [parties].”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 30, 2013]
 
Another PA daily sees the US involvement as an attempt to bring the Muslim Brotherhood back to rule Egypt.
 
“The anticipated interference of a foreign army into the arena is liable to turn everything upside down in the Middle East, because it not only is intended to upset the internal equilibrium in Syria, but it also bears important messages. The first and most important is aimed at Egypt, since the US and its international and regional allies – Turkey foremost among them – still see the changes occurring there (in Egypt) as something harmful that is a threat to these states’ regional interests and schemes.
It is clear that the military interference being led by the US against the Syrian regime is liable to push the entire region into turmoil that will move beyond Syria’s borders to the entire region. This [will be done] in an attempt to shuffle the deck and bring about utter chaos, possibly aimed at changing the course of the American schemes in the region, after the great strategic breakthrough achieved by Egypt and which threatens to undermine this strategy.”
[Al-Ayyam, Aug. 29, 2013]
