Just before U.S. President Barack Obama arrives to visit Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the PA-run newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida chose to print anti-American and pro-Hitler comments in an opinion piece.
“Our history is replete with lies … [including] the lie about al-Qaida and the September 11  events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons,” opinion writer Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher wrote in an op-ed published Monday.
The op-ed, which was translated by Palestinian Media Watch, also suggests that Hitler was greater than both Churchill and Roosevelt.
“Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once about brawls they started in bars, while Hitler hated alcohol and was not addicted to it. He used to go to sleep early and wake up early, and was very organized. These facts have been turned upside down as well, and Satan has been dressed with angels’ wings,” the op-ed stated.
It continued that negative attitudes toward Nazism were not objective but the result of the West’s victory in World War II.
“Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor that people would be competing to belong to, and not a disgrace punishable by law,” the op-ed said.
