Who says that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas does not condemn terror attacks against civilians?
As it turns out, he and his Palestinian Authority (PA) do indeed condemn terrorism -- when it is directed against anyone but an Israeli. Israeli blood, it seems, is different.
Abbas led the international outcry after the June 3 London Bridge terror attack that left seven people dead and 48 injured.
A brief statement issued by Abbas's office read:
"The President of the State of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, condemned the terror attack in the British capital of London. His Excellency (Abbas) offered his deep condolences to Britain - its queen, government and people, and to the families of the victims of the terror assault. He affirmed his permanent rejection of all forms of terrorism."
