Official PA daily: US and Israel fund terror groups, use them to carry out plan for “New Middle East”

Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for official PA daily
 “After focusing their attention on the reasons behind the growth of terror groups that condemn others for heresy, all the local, Arab, regional and international forces must face the question of how to eliminate terror. Some may say that examining the reasons [behind terrorism], may open the way to answering these questions, but the main questions remain the following: Is reform or revolution necessary in order to deal with the roots of terrorism and the groups that condemn [others] as heretics? Which agents of change are capable of raising the flag of the revival of the Arab and Muslim societies? Is it [not] possible to rely on existing regimes and their methods? Will the West in general and the US and Israel in particular renounce these groups and cut off their funding, or vice versa? In other words, can it be that the role of these groups has expired, or rather, are they still a regional element that the US and its allies rely upon? If we start answering [these questions] from last [to first], we can establish that the decision makers in the White House and in Tel Aviv and their followers still rely on these groups for the realization of their plan [for] a ‘New Middle East.’”
