An official from the Palestinian Authority told reporters at the UN that a convicted Palestinian terrorists who are given “cash benefits,” are in fact the victims of “Israeli terrorism.”
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Riyad Mansour, the “Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine [sic] to the United Nations,” was asked to comment on the PA’s payment of benefits to the family of the terrorist who murdered an American tourist last year.
“I don’t know exactly what you’re referring to,” Mansour responded, before claiming that the PA is against the killing of civilians. The reporter repeated his query about Taylor Force.
“Who? Who is?” Mansour asked.
“Taylor Force, an American who was killed in Jaffa last year, March 8, and the family of the terrorist who killed him are receiving payments from the PA. What do you have to say about that?” the reporter asked.
“Listen, this issue is, that is now, uh, in circulation for discussions,” Mansour said, later asking rhetorically, “Who is the killer and who is the terrorist?”
“There are a large number of Palestinians who are receiving compensation,” Mansour acknowledged. “They are victims of Israeli terrorism.”
This is insanity!
