Official PA Daily columnist: “Israel is the West’s creation”
Excerpt of a column by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for official PA daily and former advisor to former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on national affairs
Headline: “The response to Truss”
“I do not think that among the Palestinian people or the peoples of the Arab nation there is someone who was surprised or shocked by the statements of British Prime Minister Liz Truss, who repeated her statement that she is ‘a huge Zionist.’ With her election by the Conservative Party to replace previous Prime Minister Boris Johnson, she again promised that her government would examine transferring the British embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem…
All the Palestinians and Arabs – including simple people – know that colonialist Zionist Israel is the West’s creation, its pawn, its illegitimate daughter, and its front line in the Arab homeland.They created it in Palestine… in order to eliminate and destroy every spark of hope for the revival of the Arab nation.”
Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul is also a former PLO Central Council member.
