The Palestinian Authority on Thursday issued a statement condemning the French satirical magazine for publishing cartoons of Prophet Mohamed.

“The Palestinian presidency condemns the offensive cartoons published by Charlie Hebdo in its last edition,” the PA said.

“Our support for the French people against the terrorism that took place in Paris is a principled position against all forms of terrorism in all places in the world,” the statement said.

“At the same time, the [Palestinian] presidency affirms that no party has the right to exploit freedom of speech to insult the faiths and religious symbols of others. The religious feelings of all should be respected in order to create an appropriate climate for tolerance and coexistence between peoples.”
