Twilight Zone: PA condemns Israel for killing terrorists

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Palestinian Authority condemned Israel for the killing of two Palestinian attackers in Jerusalem and called on the United Nations to intervene to protect its citizens.

In a statement published Sunday on the website of the Wafa Palestinian news and information agency, the P.A. called on the international community to intervene following “the killing of two young men in occupied Jerusalem and the series of incursions into cities and villages in the West Bank.”

The statement by P.A. government spokesman Ihab Bseiso did not say that the two Palestinian men were killed by Israeli security services in the wake of attacks on Jewish-Israelis.

Muhannad Shafeq Halabi, 19, a law student from the al-Bireh village near Ramallah in the West Bank, killed two Jewish-Israeli men on Saturday night in the Old City of Jerusalem in a stabbing attack. He was killed in a shootout with Israeli troops after he grabbed one of his victim’s guns and started firing.

Fadi Aloon, a resident of the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya, was killed Sunday morning while being pursued by Israeli police officers after stabbing a 15-year-old Israeli teen in Jerusalem.

“The only solution is the end of the Israeli occupation of our occupied Palestinian land and the establishment of our independent state on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital,” Bseiso said in his statement, according to Wafa.

On Sunday, the Israel Police announced that Palestinians would be banned from the Old City for two days in the wake of the stabbing attacks.

    I for one am tired of reading about all the businesses and communities that are changing hundreds of years of tradition to appease just a few whining Muslims. Makes me sick to watch. The US will get enough when we are pushed too far. That time is now. Christians and Jews are not going to stand by and let you take what we have worked so hard to achieve, while you with your backward ways want to take what doesn’t belong to you because you are to lazy to work for it. The effort you put into trying to destroy other nations you could develop a great nation of your own. Leave Israel alone!

    Oh so it’s okay for the Palestinians to kill Israelites, but not okay when the table is turned? I don’t think so. The Israelis have a right to protect themselves just as well as the Palestinians. And if that involves killing, then so be it.

    Those damn muslims are all alike all over the world. They can murder others, bitch and raise hell about the countries they sought refuge in doesn’t live up to their animalistic expectations but when they are retaliated upon they want to know why they are discriminated on just like another culture we all know of. We are all sick and tired of their nonappreciation of what countries have done for them and it is time they went back to their own countries so they can bitch and moan to each other. We do not need them for anything!!!
