Obama is "a black president
whose crimes have surpassed
those of all the white presidents."
Obama "sees all of these repulsive scenes
in Gaza, and is happy,
[seeing this] as compensation
for what happened to the blacks"

Ongoing demonization of the United States as the leading imperialist country responsible for poor living conditions in the Muslim and Arab world shaped the mentality that led to the 9/11 attacks on the US by radical Islamic terrorists.
The Palestinian Authority continues this same message of demonization, in spite of the US being its largest donor since it was formed in 1994.
Below are some examples of PA hate speech against the US and President Obama during the Gaza war, which depict the US as a country that dominates and destroys others for its own gain and pleasure. Although these articles were published during the Gaza war, the messages are not unique to this period. They reflect a consistent PA policy of demonizing the US as the master imperialist conspirator who together with Israel, is trying to undermine the Arab and Muslim worlds.
Official PA daily Op-ed by Ibrahim Abd Al-Majid
"Israel has found an opportunity to start [its] ethnic cleansing [in Gaza], because the Arabs are [currently] busy with what is going on in their countries -as in Iraq IS (Islamic State) expelled the Christians and nobody in the [entire] world objected... There is something unclear about the US position. Of course, it is [the US] that stands behind these [radical] factions who call themselves Islamic and are wrecking destruction in the Arab world, and that allows Israel to declare [itself] a Jewish state; yet, [Israel's] war crimes and crimes against humanity meet with no response from the US... Since the beginning of the Israeli operations, Obama has not said a word... I could find no other explanation for [Obama's] position and for US policy other than that he is a sadist from the times when the whites persecuted the blacks. He is now behaving with the same sadism that was practiced against him in the past. All the massacres of blacks in Africa and America in the 18th and 19th centuries, all the manifestations of racist discrimination that were so widespread in the US even up to the 1970s - this man sees all of these repulsive scenes in Gaza, and is happy, [seeing this] as compensation for what happened to the blacks and as an attempt to repress it, and out of pride in the actions of a black president whose crimes have surpassed those of all the white presidents."

Official PA daily Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the official PA daily and a member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza.
"This aggression is revenge against our people for putting an end to the [Fatah-Hamas] rift, which was a 100% Israeli product as an idea, planning and execution...
Thousands are fleeing to the streets [of Gaza] with children... without water to moisten the throats of the children and mothers, while the international community is weighed down by its putrid hypocrisy, which no one knows better than us, and the USA stands like the guardian of evil, asking [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu: 'Are you gratified? Does the blood of the Palestinian children satisfy you?' Do the body parts of Palestinians satisfy your diabolic hunger, Israel?"

The PA continues to accuse America and the West of creating the radical terror organization IS as part of conspiracy to fragment and take over the Arab world, as Palestinian Media Watch reported last month, and as seen in the op-eds below:
Op-ed by Hafez Al-Barghouti, former editor and regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
"NATO leaders have formed an alliance against IS and denounced its actions. The leaders of 'NATIS' are the engineers of IS and its ilk - the 'Afghan Arabs' who preceded them, and the lovers of chaos and those who tarnish religion with tales and lies, who will succeed them.
At first, there were the 'Afghan Arabs,' who were recruited by [various] regimes, the Muslim Brotherhood and US intelligence to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan, and thereby prevent the Arab youth from joining the Palestinian revolution and the national movement in Lebanon or from fighting Israel. At their head stood Abdullah Azzam and Osama Bin Laden - the former was killed when he worked with the Americans and the latter was killed by the Americans when he turned against them. When the 'Afghan Arabs' returned to their countries, they provoked riots... and used them again in the Bosnian war. When the war there ended, they were expelled, and some of them were sent to the Caucasus - to serve the West, nothing more.
In Syria and Libya, NATO gathered all the unemployed, mentally ill, those with religious and sexual perversions and those who love adventure and 'Jihad marriages.' It financed and armed them, then threw them into Syria and Libya via Turkey, and they helped the European Muslims and others like them join the ranks of the opposition. When they failed to overthrow the Syrian regime and take control of Libya, they turned to Iraq, on Turkey's directives, or to Libya, to participate in the massacres or infiltrate Egypt to carry out massacres [there].
The discussion at the NATO summit on the danger posed by IS - after [NATO] brought this disaster on itself - might seem contemptible to us, since NATO is the one who created, financed and armed IS, and if the latter mutinies against it, it will be lying in the bed it had made."

"IS (Islamic State) was a pawn of Israeli-American intelligence, meant to fulfill the dream of the Jewish state, alongside several other purposes...
The danger in a religious state is evident to all... Every religious state has fought and will always fight other religious and ethnic minorities in order to expel them from the country. This is what happened in Serbia, this is what is being carried out in Iraq by IS, and this is what may happen to the Palestinians in Israel, both Muslims and Christians, if the dream of the Jewish state is fulfilled...
Establishing a Jewish state means the Jewish territory controlled by the Jewish state will be land for Jews only. In the Palestinian case, this is a complex issue, because this state is a colonialist, settler and orientalist state, which fabricated a historical narrative in order to colonize Palestine. It will act forcefully to destroy the Arab society in Palestine, which was colonized in 1948. This may amount to the expulsion of the Palestinians living in Jerusalem, in order to cleanse the Jewish state of the 'gentiles' - the Jewish term for non-Jews...
The creation of IS, the outlining of its strategy and the designing of its model of Takfir (i.e., the act of accusing other Muslims of heresy) contribute dangerously to the realization of the idea that Israel is a Jewish state."
