    Fayyad: Stop using Palestinians to justify terror

    RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Wednesday condemned the killing of three children and a rabbi at a Jewish school in France, rejecting the suspected gunman's motive of avenging Palestinian children killed by Israel.

    "This terrorist crime is condemned in the strongest terms by the Palestinian people and our children ... No Palestinian child can accept crimes against innocent people," Fayyad said in a statement.

    The suspect Mohamed Merah, 24, claimed to belong to al-Qaida, and to want revenge for Palestinian children and French military involvement abroad, according to France's Interior Minister Claude Gueant.

    ...Fayyad slammed the shootings as an "attack on innocent lives ... a cowardly terrorist act," and he denounced the attempt to link the crime to solidarity with Palestinians.

    "It is time for these criminals to stop exploiting the name of Palestine through their terrorist actions, and to stop pretending to stand up for Palestinian children, who only seek a decent life for themselves and for all children of the world," he added.

    Hopefully the "useful idiots" - who use acts of terrorism as a stage for the terrorists (alleged) message - can learn something from Fayyad.

    Merman316 saidI totally agree with Salam Fayyad.

    Right.

    Consider further: neither terrorism in France or Tel Aviv can be ratioanlized or justified.
