A Fatah Central Committee called the United States the Number One enemy of the Palestinians in a Palestinian Authority broadcast on Thursday.
“The number-one enemy of the Palestinian people, and of the Arab and Islamic nation, remains the U.S. because it is the main supporter of Israel, and poses a threat not just to the Palestinian people but to the entire Arab region,” said the official, Jamal Muhaisen, according to a report by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
Continuing in an anti-Semitic fulmination, Muhaisen alleged that “when it is said that the Palestinian people is the last people on Earth to be occupied, I say the American people is under occupation as well. While we are under Israeli occupation, the American people in the U.S. are under Jewish-Zionist occupation. When the U.S. presidential candidates meet with AIPAC, they are not meeting them as American citizens, but as representatives of the State of Israel,” he said.
He also said the U.S. “partitioned the region in order to help establish Israel, and now they are doing it so that Israel will control the region.”
