Official PA daily columnist: US only cares about “the Arabs’ oil” and colonialism

Op-ed on the subject of the US veto of the UN Security Council resolution on the issue of Israeli building in Jerusalem and the West Bank (Feb. 18, 2011)
: “The US, Israel, and mercenaries”
“The US, which removed Europe from ruling the world and took its place following WWII, did not change the policy of its predecessors, even if it did, for a short while, change its approach. Europe in the past [would not], and US today will not for a moment oppose Israeli policy. This is because Israel is the only one that maintains the aims of colonialism, headed by the US, and realizes them.
All that interests the US is the Arabs’ oil, the Suez Canal, the Strait of Hormuz, and the Strait of Bab El-Mandeb, so as to secure its trade. So long as the Arab trillions are not put to use for a cultural, scientific, economic and academic revolution, the West is fine.”
