PA daily: Israel deserves the forest fire; its "aim is destruction of humanity"
Column in the sports section of official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida following Qatar’s selection to host the 2022 World Cup:
Headline: "Great Qatar and small Israel"
"That night [of the announcement concerning Qatar] we followed the news. The most prominent items on the news broadcasts were the selection of Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup, and the fire that broke out in the occupied Palestinian Carmel Mountains...
We followed the developments concerning the fire. Israel, which used to pride itself on - and still boasts of - its power, is crumbling in the face of the fire. A state of fear and confusion is washing over the Israeli street, and loud voices at the top of the Zionist government are calling to the world to intervene in extinguishing the fire. Israel - whose preparations for destruction and war we hear about daily - is now unable to protect nature, which belongs to [all] mankind. This is a natural outcome for a country whose aim is destruction and ruin of humanity.
That is the difference between a country (Qatar) that strives for progress and for human development, and a country (Israel) which disseminates destruction, ruin and weapons in the world; between a country which acts to build a human generation, and a country which acts to kill nations, to threaten them and to occupy their land; between a country which acts to disseminate the culture of love and peace, and a country which acts to disseminate the culture of hatred and racism among human beings."
