PA daily op-ed attacks US Democrats
Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
Headline: “Trump brings back McCarthyism”
“The heated conflict between senior officials and representatives of the two main parties in the US, the Republican and the Democratic, is following a straight and deteriorating line after the assassination of Iranian Quds Force head Qassem Soleimani [on Jan. 3, 2020]. This is because the members of Congress (sic., House of Representatives), which has a Democratic majority, adopted a decision limiting the authorities of [US] President Donald Trump last Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020.
Simultaneously, on the same day the White House issued an unprecedented statement in terms of intensifying the dispute with the Democrats, when it said that it did not inform the Democratic members of Congress about the decision to assassinate Soleimani out of concern that the news would be leaked! Or in other words – a clear and unambiguous accusation of treason against the Democrats…
However, the Democrats are no less aggressive towards the other nations and peoples, and Trump does not outdo them in defending the American imperialistic interests, plans, and initiatives, and therefore this accusation is invalid and embarrassing.”
