Arab editorial sentiment against Powell

June 22, 2003 at 3:32 PM   |   Comments

LONDON, June 22 (UPI) -- Sunday's Arabic newspapers generally slammed U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell in their editorial stance, standing by their charge of a bias toward Israel.

The BBC reported that across the Arab world, the United States is not a neutral party as it pursues the so-called road map to a comprehensive peace. The newspaper Al-Jazirah in Saudi Arabia said that Powell's news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, "it became clear how close the United States and Israel are in their aggressive stances toward Palestinian groups."

The Syrian paper Tishrin said Israeli terrorism is considered by the United States to be an effort towards peace.

The United Arab Emirates paper Al-Bayan said the United States has found it is "only possible to implement (the road map) in accordance with the wishes of Zionists."

Egypt's Al-Jimhuriyah said the United States itself is adopting Israel's justifications for "its daily attacks on Palestinians."
