The Palestinian Authority’s envoy to the United Nations refuses to condemn the Halamish terror attack, saying, “Don’t expect all Palestinians to be angels.”

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.”
The international community, Danon continued, must demand that the Palestinian Authority “immediately end terror and glorification of violence.”
