Palestinian Authority Official: Terrorists Who Murder Americans Are ‘Victims’

‘Who is the killer and who is the terrorist?’

Palestinian Authority Official: Terrorists Who Murder Americans Are ‘Victims’ (The Washington Free Beacon)

A top official from the Palestinian Authority (PA) told reporters Thursday that convicted Palestinian terrorists who receive cash benefits from the PA are "victims of Israeli terrorism."

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.

The Taylor Force Act, a bill under consideration in Congress that would cut U.S. aid to the PA over the payments, is named after the U.S. Army veteran and Vanderbilt graduate student who was killed.
