Palestinian Security Official: U.S., Europe Brought Brussels Terror Upon Themselves

A spokesman for the Palestinian Authority’s security forces wrote a Facebook post after Tuesday’s attacks in Belgium blaming the United States and Europe for the rise of global terror.

“Those who prepare the poison will taste it themselves, and today Europe is having a taste of what it prepared with its own hands,” Adnan al-Damiri wrote. He added that the West was responsible for “exporting the Jewish terror to Palestine, supporting it and justifying it….Unless you fight terror everywhere, first and foremost in Palestine, since the [Israeli] occupation is the ugliest form of terror…you will be burnt by its fire, and terror has no religion.”

Al-Damiri’s comments were first reported by Palestinian Media Watch.

A cartoon in the official Palestinian newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida made a similar point. The cartoon showed a cartoon figure with a globe for a head, meant to represent the West, attempting to detonate the Middle East, only to have the explosives detonate under the figure.

The claim that the United States created ISIS has been made a number of times by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He also said that the United States was behind the Paris terror attacks last November.
