The Palestinian official newspaper wrote recently that the U.S. was behind the September 11, 2001 terror attacks and that Hitler was greater than president Roosevelt, according to press reports in Israel.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports that two days before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel and the PA, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official PA daily printed an anti-American op-ed along with pro-Hitler comments:
“Our history is replete with lies… [including] the lie about Al-Qaeda and the September 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons.”
The op-ed further implies that Hitler was greater than both Churchill and Roosevelt, who were “alcoholics”:
“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 PA daily op-ed further asserts that negative attitudes toward Nazism are not objective but the result of the West’s victory:
“Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor that people would be competing to belong to, and not a disgrace punishable by law.”
This follows the “warm welcome” given by the Arabs of Bethlehem to American officials, who came on Monday to prepare for President Barack Obama’s visit to the city on Friday. They threw shoes and garbage at the vehicles of the entourage from the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem.
Hundreds of Arabs mobbed the vehicles outside the Church of the Nativity, where Obama is scheduled to visit when he comes to Bethlehem. They further set fire to a “Welcome Obama” banner after it was spray-painted with swastikas and run over by a taxi cab.
