Palestinian official daily declares CIA behind Islamic attack on Moscow

Palestinian Media Watch ( has translated an article from the Palestinian official daily "Al-Hayat Al-Jadida", controlled by Arafat and his thugs. In this excuse for a newspaper, the writer claims that the attack in Moscow by the Islamic terrorists were nothing but a CIA plot:

A senior writer in the Palestinian Authority official daily claims that the attack in Moscow by Islamic terrorists was a CIA plot. According to the writer, the US hopes that having the Russians suffer a Muslim terror attack will convince them to vote with the US in the UN in support of attacking Iraq. France, who also has been opposing the US on the coming UN vote, may be next in line to suffer a Muslim terrorist attack initiated by the US, according to the Palestinian Authority daily. The following is from the text of the article:

"[Russian] President Putin's ambassador to the Security Council is threatening to vote against the American's proposed resolution to attack Iraq. This is how we view the operation in the Moscow theater; we are of the opinion that the sympathy and friendship that bond Washington to several Islamic movements in Europe, among them the Chechens, cannot possibly be one-sided and there has to be some sort of repayment of the American friendship by the "Mujahedin" [quotes in source] of Chechnya, Bosnia, Hercegovina and Kosovo.

The CIA will never acknowledge its responsibility for this operation which claimed over 170 lives, including those of the perpetrators.... However, the American message reached Moscow and was, perhaps, read the same way by the decision makers in France, who oppose the American pressure in the Security Council and insistently resist giving the Americans an international power of attorney to destroy the most ancient of Arab countries. "We do not know whether there are members of pro-American organizations in Paris, but we believe that American Intelligence has no need for operatives in France, and we therefore fear a recurrence of a bloody scene in the capitol of [our] friends, the French. We hope they are preparing for such an eventuality, lest it be Moscow first and Paris next."

[Fuad Abu Hajleh, senior columnists, PA official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, October 29, 2002]

Nothing gets printed on Al-Hayat Al-Jadida unless the censors from Yasser Arafat give the green light. Of course, what should we expect from people who in the 21st centuty still believe that "The Protocols of Zion" are not a forgery?
