Palestinian Authority paper calls Jason Greenblatt a 'mongoloid' - report
In an attack featured in an op-ed rejecting the unpublished US Middle East peace initiative, a columnist compared Greenblatt’s appearance and conduct to someone suffering from Down Syndrome.
A regular columnist for the official Palestinian Authority paper called US Special Envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt "a mongoloid," Palestinian Media Watch reported on Sunday.
“Anyone who follows the prattle of Jason Greenblatt, President [Donald] Trump's envoy in the matter of the deal of the century, sees that his condition is very similar to Down Syndrome,” Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, who was once the adviser to former PA prime minister Salam Fayyad, wrote in the official daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.
In an attack featured in an op-ed rejecting the unpublished US Middle East peace initiative, Al-Ghoul stated that Down Syndrome “strikes all the components of the American administration. Anyone who examines the general genes of the components of the Trump administration sees that it is a politically crippled creature.”
US Ambassador to Israel David M. Friedman slammed the publication, saying, "I am disgusted —not for Jason (he’s got broad shoulders) — but by this utter disregard for the value of every human life."
