PA calls Condoleezza Rice: “Colored”, “Dark” “the Black Lady” and “Pitiful” (PMW-PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH) By Itamar Marcus 06/26/02)Source: http://www.pmw.org.il PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Introduction:
PA verbal attacks on the United States are returning to the frequency and style common before the 9-11 attacks, including personal insults and demonizing of the US.

One target this week of personal attack was Condoleezza Rice, as the writer in the official Palestinian Authority daily, uses her race as the vehicle to launch what he obviously intends, as personal insults. Though familiar with the term African-American [used in the article] he uses the terms “Colored”, “Dark” and “the Black Lady", as part of his attempt to ridicule and insult Rice.

In two articles this week the US was maligned for its killing of the “Indians” and “stealing their land”. Personal insults of US Administration leaders, writers, and lawmakers as well as attacks on the essence of the US were common as PA expression of political ideology in the years prior to September 11, 2001. After a short period of less offensive press, the PA has now returned to its previous open expression of anathema toward the United States, presenting the US to its people as an enemy of Arabs and of Islam, and having been created as a nation in sin.

The following are excerpts from three articles that appeared this week.

“My enthusiasm for George Bush increased after he entered the White House and chose to appoint to his administration two people from among the colored, a first in the history of American administrations: Secretary of State Colin Powell and National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. We said then, both in private and in public, that these colored senior officials are a part of the Third World, even if only due to the color of their skin…

“But what happened after that was embarrassing and astonishing, especially what happened with the dark complexioned lady, or, more accurately: black, the National Security Advisor ... What compounds the astonishment is that the Black Lady always makes a point, whether the opportunity presents itself or not, of denouncing the Palestinians to the point where her positions and statements have come to be nearly daily lessons to the American people and the world, causing regret to every Arab who was optimistic about her arrival on the political scene, especially when comparing her stupid positions with Albright’s, who, in her day, proved she had a greater sense of international responsibility, and was less aggressive than this pitiful woman who has dealt a blow to the image of the African- American in the eyes of the vast majority of the world’s inhabitants.”
[Dr. Abd Al Aziz Al Maqaleh, Official PA daily, Al- Hayat Al-Jadida, June 23, 2002]

The US and Israel annihilate other nations 1:
“They [Israelis] want to eliminate us from upon our land and conquer our place just as the forefathers of the American President [Bush] did when they eradicated the Indians, America’s original inhabitants.”
[Youssuf Hamaad, Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 23, 2002]

The US and Israel annihilate other nations 2:
“The United States has reached heights of economic and military might unmatched by any passing empire since the dawn of history. Its perennial ally, Israel, has also achieved military might greater than Sparta’s, despite its small geographical size.
“...One common denominator binds the United States and Israel: Annihilation of other nations and stunting and oppressing those who endured of the original owners of the land, the Indians and the Palestinians.”
[Dr. Waleed Iyyad, Al-Quds, June 25, 2002]
