Netanyahu: PA condemnation of Itamar attack not good enough

March 12, 2011 20:22

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday called on the international community and the Palestinian Authority to harshly condemn Friday's terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar, which he referred to as "child murder."

Netanyahu stated that the Palestinian Authority's statements about the attack thus far were not harsh enough for such a brazen attack in which five members of the same family were stabbed to death in their beds and three orphans were left behind. "That's not the way you condemn terror, that's not the way you fight terror," Netanyahu said in a televised press conference.

The prime minister also called on countries of the world "that run to the UN to condemn planned Israeli building," to rush to condemn the Itamar terror attack in the same manner.
