Official PA daily: US planned Gaza war and wars in Iraq, Syria and Libya

Op-ed by Muharram Barghouti in the official PA daily
     "Taking a closer look at what is happening in the region we can see that the wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Palestine were planned by the US in order to protect its interests...
The US has been using the Jewish ISIL, which is led by Jewish extremism, as represented by [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor] Liberman. This in the wake of an incitement campaign and the education of the Israeli public to murder Arabs and expel the Palestinians from the land of 'Israel.' The racist and fascist incitement campaign culminated in the murder of the Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Abu Khdeir, who was burned alive. Not even Hitler, Pinochet and Nero - nor the ISIL in Syria, which kills whoever doesn't know the correct number of times to kneel and bow during the morning prayer - ever reached this level...
In an attempt to undermine the resolution of the [Fatah-Hamas] rift, the US engaged the Jewish ISIL to attack Gaza - not just in order to commit crimes, kill and destroy, but also to stir up an inter-Palestinian civil war, in an attempt to deepen the rift and Gaza's separation from the rest of the occupied homeland, to prevent the establishment of the independent [Palestinian] state...
We are now more aware that the Americans - who want to fight for their own interests using Islamic, Jewish and Christian believers - are truly the head of the snake... ISIL' declaration that it will fight Israel only after it has finished with the infidels merely proves that ISIL in Syria and Iraq will not fight the Jewish ISIL, because the plot is the same plot, the boss is the same boss, and the goal is the same goal: to tear [apart] the Arab homeland and gain control of its resources - through the blood of others."

Note: This article was published as Hamas was firing hundreds of rockets at Israel and as Israel was responding with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel.

In the events leading up to that conflict, on June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after the abduction. Two days later, Palestinian teen Muhammad Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and murdered in Jerusalem in a revenge attack by Israeli extremists. Following this murder, Palestinians took to the streets of eastern Jerusalem in violent and continuous protests. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ministers immediately condemned the revenge killing in the strongest terms. Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects on July 6th; under interrogation, three of the suspects confessed to murdering Khdeir.
