Op-ed in PA daily on Gazan riots and attacking US embassy move to Jerusalem: Israel is "satanic Zionist plant," Trump is a "moron"

Excerpt of op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, a regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “Be blessed, Gaza"
    "Gaza, O the flag of nationalism and its symbol; Gaza, O the glory of the people and the nation; Gaza, O the pride of the men, women, and children; Gaza, O the symbol of giving and sacrifice…
Your enemies and the robbers of the land and the homeland are vampires who are shepherded by a rebellious cowboy (i.e., US President Donald Trump). On behalf of the Zionist-like Crusaders, they are attempting to execute you, Palestine, Jerusalem, and peace…
O sister of Jericho, Hebron, Jenin, Nablus, and Jerusalem - the proud capital as history is slaughtered, the facts are turned upside down in the name of the wretched promise of the moron Trump and his staff who are obsessed with Armageddon – sprinkle your pure blood over their putrid heads that are contaminated with the conduct of capitalists, that are mired in the bog of robbing the peoples and planting the satanic Zionist plant in the inhabited home and homeland…
A curse on all the cowards from among the [Muslim] Brotherhood (i.e., Hamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood), the infidels, and the murderous children of Zion."
