Israel was “planted in the heart of the region” and is a form of colonialism
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Sept. 23, 2013

Op-ed by member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza and columnist for the official PA daily, Yahya Rabah:
     “Clearly, the old colonialism that left our lands… tried to stay, but in different ways, from its ongoing influence in the fields of economics, culture and intelligence, to the creation of new entities, the most conspicuous [example] of which is the planting of Israel in the heart of the region and the exploitation of political Islam, which is represented by the Muslim Brotherhood.”
