Palestinian Leaders: Killing Jewish ‘Settlers’ is ‘Legal’ and Our ‘National Duty’

“EVERY measure taken against them is legitimate and legal.”
A PLO leader today declared in a television interview that the murders of Israeli parents Naama and Eitam Henkin in a shooting attack a week ago fulfilled a Palestinian “national duty,” reports Palestinian Media Watch. The Henkins were murdered on the road between Itamar and Elon Moreh in front of their four children, aged 9, 7, 4, and 4 months. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades of Fatah originally took credit, but five Hamas terrorists who were arrested confessed to the murders.

On October 6, the official Palestinian Authority TV program The State of Politics hosted PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail. When the host asked if the killers were from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades [Fatah’s military wing] or from Hamas, Ismail answered,

“There is no need to return to the argument and dispute about who carried out the operation… There is no need to announce it and boast of having done it. One fulfills his national duty voluntarily, as best as one can.”
