PA journalist: US seeks to dominate world like ancient Rome (PMW-PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH) By Itamar Marcus 09/24/02)Source: http://www.pmw.org.il PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Introduction:
The Palestinian Authority hatred of the US, which is expressed at many levels of Palestinian leadership and media often has a common repeating theme: the US wants to dominate and exploit the world. This is particularity noteworthy when understanding that a central theme of PA ideology, having appeared in school books, sermons and TV lectures, is that Islam is destined to ultimately defeat, dominate, and rule over the world.

PMW has seen repeatedly, that many of the lies and libels that the PA directs at both Israel and the US are actually various odious aspects of their own ideology that they attempt to brand on others. This accusation of world domination, is taken straight from their own ideology, but "Islam" is crossed out and replaced by "the US."

The following was how it was expressed by a PA journalist on PA TV this week:

"There are two lunatics leading the world: George Bush, and this man also, [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon who is with him. All their notions are imbecilic. Bush fantasizes that he can change the world and organize it in an American fashion, that America can be like ancient Rome, the sole leader… He thinks that if he conquers Iraq it will give him the key to change the map of the Middle East, to control the oil…
“They have no methods of resolution other than war, force... if someone wants to be the leader of the world, he must set an example; and he is no example."

[Hussein Hijazi, Political Analyst and Writer, interviewed on PATV, September 20, 2002] (PMW.ORG.IL 09/24/02)
