The official Palestinian Authority daily has accused US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of taking bribes from Israel and wallowing in "a swamp of lies."

"Why, Mrs. Hillary? How much did the Zionists pay you as a bribe?" taunted an article in today's edition of Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, which is controlled by the office of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Another article in the paper accused Clinton of lying:

"Words that treat truth with cruelty and wallow in the swamp of lies, especially coming from a person of senior position, are improper... [such are] the words of US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 2, 2009]

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida also ran a cartoon reiterating a longstanding Palestinian claim that the US is controlled by Jews. It shows an Uncle Sam figure looking into a mirror held by a caricature of a hook-nosed religious Jew, wearing a hat with a Star of David. Instead of seeing his own reflection, the American sees the Jew in the mirror.

The articles and cartoon come after Clinton praised Israel for making concessions on the issue of settlements, and blamed the Palestinians for not resuming peace talks without prior conditions.
