US blackmails PNA to serve Zionism's interests

posted on 11/12/2001: 1930 views

(WAM) A UAE Arabic daily lashed out at the US for blackmailing the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) in favour of Israel as part of its effort to halt violence in Palestine. ' Washington is blackmailing the weakest side and victim - PNA- while leaving the Zionist assassin at large and did not even dare to condemn him,' Dubai-based 'Al Bayan' reported in its editorial today. The paper said that the US positions were difficult to understand. US Secretary of State Colin Powell has urged Palestinian President Yasser Arafat to crack down on Hamas on the ground that it threatens its PNA, while US Mideast peace envoy Anthony Zinni threatened to end his mission if the PNA did not arrest those wanted by Israel.

'Washington wants Arafat to succeed in what the Israel war machine has failed in - to end the uprising and hit the resistance movements so as to serve interests of the Zionist enemy,' the paper warned. ' The US position is a normal reaction to what Washington believes in and doing now in Afghanistan. It is adopting the logic of a proxy war for Israel's favour,' it added. The paper warned Arafat not to fall in the US-Zionist trap because if he met their demands a civil war would break whose fire would burn the Palestinians only. ' Arafat should take utmost care of this trap and should strive to close Palestinian ranks to foil any evil plots against Palestinian national unity,' the paper concluded. Another UAE paper decried the international community's silence over the continued Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people, saying the western world had lost its heart and mind. ' How can the US and its western allies leave Israeli Prime Minister Ariel (Sharon) commit all these heinous crimes against the innocent Palestinian people,' the Sharjah-based 'Al Khaleej' asked. ' Giving Sharon a green light by the US, UN and EU means that these circles have come to the conclusion that the Palestinian cause can only be settled through capitulation of the Palestinians and that they see the settlement through Sharon's policies and not through negotiations.'

The paper said that it seemed the war in Afghanistan and its consequences had so far convinced the US and the West that the Afghan war is the only suitable way to deal with others, notably in Palestine now and in Iraq or everywhere in future. ' The American-European stance opens the door for Sharon to destroy the Palestinian infrastructure and establishments, undermine the Palestinian will and force Palestinians to leave their homeland in order to bring Jews back to Israel,' the paper said. The paper noted that the war for the submission of Arabs had started in Afghanistan and is now continuing in Palestine and may move to other Arab countries. It warned the west that departure is not like arrival and Palestine is not like Afghanistan and peace in the Middle East and the world at large would never occur if the Palestinians did not have their full rights.
