The supposedly "moderate" Palestinian Authority led by President Abbas is rewarding the billions of dollars provided by this country by inciting its citizens to hate the United States, claiming America has established the radical Islamic movement Islamic State (ISIS or IS) with the long-term goal of controlling the Arab-Muslim states by dividing them through conflict and wars.
On August 7th, the official Palestinian Authority TV Station, the "Palestine News Network," reported Fatah Central Committee Member Abbas Zaki made the claim:
Fatah Central Committee Member and Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China Abbas Zaki said the Palestinian language and terminology [employed] with the Zionist enemy must be changed, as whoever has seen the extent of the destruction, the ruins and the limbs torn from the pure bodies of our people in Gaza understands the goals of the Zionist attack (i.e., Operation Protective Edge) - [namely,] to exploit the terrible situation in the Arab world that has resulted from the lack of bravery, enthusiasm and willpower among those [countries] who have made subjugation to the US their way [of life]... [The US,] whose most advanced pawns include Israel and its new creation, ISIS, whose goal is to destroy the Arab world and eliminate the Palestinian cause.Additionally five times in the past six week the official Palestinian Authority Newspaper "Al-Hayat Al-Jadida" published an op-ed slandering America with the same claim. Below are three examples:
A July 10th Op-ed by Adli Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, said, in part:
It is Israel that, whenever it gets bored, returns to Gaza with military aircraft to destroy homes and facilities and kill children. Where is the help, you [Hezbollah] sectarian liars who collaborate with the Persian Ayatollahs... hostile [ones], andyour ilk - the CIA's collaborators from the ISIS -who destroy revolutions and give nations a bad name?Palestinian Youth Union General Director Muharram Barghouti wrote on July 16th:
The ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq), Islamic Front, and Al-Nusra Front (i.e., all radical Islamists) are Muslims from various countries the US is using to fight in Iraq and Syria, in order to fragment the unity of these two Arab countries...Palestinian Author Ibrahim Abd Al-Majid's op-ed on August 3rd:
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... ISIS's declaration that it will fight Israel only after it has finished with the infidels merely proves that ISIS in Syria and Iraq will not fight the Jewish ISIS, 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."
This [ignorance] has peaked in [recent] years, with the radical terrorists of ISIS and those like them, who were created by Israel and the US, and are paving the way for Israel to act like them."
