PA daily op-ed warns of “American ‘IS-ization’” and claims the US wants continued “Arab bloodshed”

Op-ed by Hafez Al-Barghouti, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
 “Neither Western nor Arab media [outlets] elaborated on the aggression against Gaza [to the extent they did] on Kobani. The issue here is not a conflict between Arabs and Kurds, but between Arabs and Arabs, for the Syrian Kurds have no intention of seceding from the destroyed Syrian motherland. But Kobani will introduce separatism to the Kurds in Syria through the arrival of the Iraqi Kurds, and the US’s plan to dismantle Syria and Iraq is still relevant… Libya will be the next stop of American ‘IS-ization’ – Washington will distract us, as usual, with one military arena in order to open another – the main thing being that Arab bloodshed never cease. America’s final aim is to transfer the fighting and civil wars from one country to another, until the [Arab] Nation degenerates without remedy… At the moment, Israel, Turkey and Iran, with the US’s explicit approval, are planning to take over the Arab land and all it contains.”
