“There are no words to adequately condemn the despicable attack in Tel Aviv, not only because it is contrary to the interests of the Palestinian people, but, most importantly, because of the philosophy behind it that is destroying the Palestinian people.
It is a racist philosophy that is based on the cruel principle of killing Jews because they are Jews, which characterized movements in history among which it is not a great honor to be numbered.
It is a philosophy of war criminals, the goal of which is to murder innocent people walking down the street. And it is a philosophy of cowardice. If someone wants to fight occupation, let them go and attack the occupying army, not innocent people in the street.
From the point of view of Palestinian society, this is a philosophy of self-destruction. Those who sent the young man to blow himself up in Tel Aviv foster in young Palestinians the culture of death instead of the culture of life. Therefore every patriotic Palestinian must condemn the attack and see it as anti-Palestinian terror.” — from an article by Nazir Majali, a commentator on Arab television stations and in the Arabic-language daily Asharq Al-Awsat.
