PMO 'disappointed' Abbas met with freed terrorist Muna

December 21, 2011 18:16

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev said the PMO was "disappointed" by what it termed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's "unfortunate decision" to meet freed Palestinian terrorist Amna Muna in Turkey on Wednesday.

Abbas met Muna in Ankara along with ten other Palestinians freed and exiled to Turkey as part of the deal to release kidnapped Palestinian prisoner Gilad Schalit in October.  Muna was in prison for luring 16-year-old Ofir Rahum to Ramallah where he was murdered in 2001.

"Instead of promoting peace and reconciliation, the Palestinian leadership seems to be putting extremist murderers up on a pedestal," he said. "This raises serious questions as to their commitment and as to their desire to end the conflict."
