Palestinian Authority Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour declined this week to condemn last Friday’s terrorist attack in Halamish — in which three Israelis were stabbed to death at a Shabbat dinner — and instead justified the act.

Addressing reporters at the UN headquarters in New York City, Mansour said, “When you have an occupation with its ruthlessness…then don’t expect all Palestinians to be angels [and] not to react to it.”

“If people think that the Palestinian people are going to live in that situation without any form of resistance to it, that is not realistic and that is not fair,” Mansour went on to assert.

Israel’s UN envoy, Danny Danon, said the Halamish attack was a “direct result of hateful Palestinian incitement.”

    An “angel” would have helped stop the terrorist before he could carry out his murderous act. VERY few Palestinians do that. Simply not committing murder in the first place is not being an “angel” – it is what normal members of civil society do every day. The depraved and callous monsters are the ones who commit murder and terror. In normal societies such people are few; sadly, among the Arabs it is a significant number.
