The Middle East is falling apart, according to the Palestinian Authority (PA)'s official daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - all because of an elaborate conspiracy on the part of the US to stoke conflict in Gaza, Iraq, Syria, and Libya.
The article claims that US President Barack Obama's shift from the "war on terror" to the sidelines of foreign policy issues is designed to inflict damage on the Arab world without directly costing US lives.
It then bizarrely claims that the ISIS - the Islamist sect conquering Iraq in an Islamic turf war deemed "too extreme" for Al Qaeda - is "led by Jewish extremism, as represented by [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor] Liberman."
"Not even Hitler, Pinochet and Nero - nor the ISIS in Syria, which kills whoever doesn't know the correct number of times to kneel and bow during the morning prayer - ever reached this level," it asserts, linking the ISIS with the murder of 16 year-old Arab teen Mohammed Abu Khder.
The article then swings back to the "Jewish roots" of ISIS Islamists.
"ISIL's declaration that it will fight Israel only after it has finished with the infidels merely proves that ISIL in Syria and Iraq will not fight the Jewish ISIL, because the plot is the same plot, the boss is the same boss, and the goal is the same goal: to tear [apart] the Arab homeland and gain control of its resources - through the blood of others."
