Palestinian Authority Insists that America Created ISIS

Over the last six weeks, as Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) points out, the Palestinian Authority's official publication, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, has printed five articles that have maintained the same overall premise: that the United States, in conjunction with Israel, established the radical Islamic movement known as ISIS (Islamic State), which have been conquering the lands of Syria and Iraq through bloodshed and ethnic cleansing.

Astoundingly, despite thousands of innocents slaughtered in their wake, there have been seldom to zero demonstrations and rallies around the world (as there have been against Israel and the IDF) that have condemned what is an actual depiction of genocide currently taking place in the world.

This argument has spawned the hashtag on Twitter: #NoJewsNoNews

The premise throughout the articles is not so dissimilar to a tweet composed (and later deleted) by a Dutch minister and government employee who wrote "ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s part of a plan by Zionists who are deliberately trying to blacken Islam’s name.”

The articles published in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida reveal that the United States has an objective of controlling all Muslim and Arab states, and to divide them through war. They also say that all conflicts currently taking place in the Arab world are 'the work of the US.'

“The wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Palestine were planned by the US in order to protect its interests… The ISIS, 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… 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,” reads one such article published July 16th.

Weeks before, on July 3rd, an article was published arguing that “The radical terrorists of ISIS and those like them, who were created by Israel and the US, are paving the way for Israel to act like them.”

According to PMW, the current editor in chief of Al-Hayat Al-Jadida was appointed by Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization Mahmoud Abbas.

Since ISIS declared itself a Caliphate, claiming their objective is to take over the entire Middle East, they have used extreme terrorist tactics to gain land, including mass murders and decapitations, which have been revealed via gruesome photos shared online.

Their most recent campaign has been against the Yazidi Kurds in northern Iraq, of whom they've slaughtered over 1,000 this weekend alone according to Tazpit News Agency.
