PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi last week called President Donald Trump’s appointment of John Bolton as US National Security Advisor a sign of the American administration’s alleged racism.

“With his [Bolton’s] appointment, the matters have been clarified and the picture has been completed – the American administration has joined the extremist Zionists, the fundamentalist Christians, and the racist white people,” Ashrawi stated, as reported by the PA official daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

A regular columnist for the PA daily called Trump “the ugly racist” who has appointed Bolton, another racist.

“Trump the ugly racist is looking for those similar to him who are most racist, who threaten America’s fate even more than they threaten the world’s fate,” Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul wrote in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida last week. “By choosing the despicable John Bolton as national security advisor, he is exacerbating America’s crisis and shooting himself in the foot.”

Other examples of the ongoing hate speech from PA and Fatah leaders include Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen’s presenting the US and Israel as the Arabs’ “only enemies” and a threat to world peace. He accused Trump of leading “a war against the Arab and Islamic nation.”

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) noted that Palestinian leaders have turned hate speech against the US and the Trump administration into policy.

“Many other PA and Fatah officials have demonized Trump and US Vice President Pence, slurring them, and have condemned the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy there. Some have even warned of ‘disasters of war’,” if Trump goes ahead with the plans,” PMW said.
