An official Palestinian Authority (PA) daily op-ed has accused the United States of being behind all the chaos and civil wars in the Muslim and Arab world, including the longest and oldest fight from right after Mohammed's times between the Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims.

According to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), the PA writer claims that this turmoil is the direct result of the September 11th attacks on the US, stating that the US utilized this attack to create "an imaginary enemy called 'terror,' and it supervised the cultivation of the idea until it ripened into what is known today as the Islamic State organization."

Moreover, the writer claims that the facts indicate that the US itself is the number one suspect in the 9/11 terror attack. This type of conspiracy theory has been voiced often in the official PA daily, and sometimes includes Israel as a collaborator.

Abbas’s daily has previously blamed the US for establishing the Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization, and for being responsible for all the crises and wars in the Middle East.

PMW revealed the latest accusations claiming the US is responsible for the regional unrest in the Middle East came in the form of Dr. Osama Al-Fara in his regular op-ed column:

"The US invented the idea of creative anarchy in the (Middle East) region, which began with its war against Iraq, to create a game of dominoes in the region. The same US has indeed succeeded in convincing the world that the Islamic extremism is what threatens world security and peace.”

“In order to do this, it used the events of Sept. 11, 2001, even though that event raised many questions that place the US in the defendant's seat, as was exposed later in a series of facts and reports. However, out of this event the US succeeded in creating an imaginary enemy called 'terror,' and it supervised the cultivation of the idea until it ripened into what is known today as the Islamic State organization,” wrote Al-Fara.

He continued, “there is no doubt that the US is still holding many of strings of the game, and its main goal is to spill oil on the fire that is burning in the region, of which it is clearly the sole beneficiary. This is so because the fighting raging in the region provides the appropriate land for redrawing the map of the region, which will use sectarianism to determine the geographic borders of its states, on the basis of studies prepared years ago. In this way, the US will distance Arab states from each other, and uproot the idea of unity between them.”

“Naturally, it will not find a better chord than the Sunni-Shiite conflict on which to play the tune of the next war in the region. Moreover, the fire burning in the region has even turned the wheels of the traditional American arms industry in an unprecedented way, while the US pays no price for the anarchy it has created in the region. This is so as the 'terror' has not reached (the US') yard as has happened in the European states, and (the US) has not been forced to open its gates to the immigrants who have flocked to Europe,” concluded Al-Fara.
