Various radical Palestinian groups Monday criticized Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad for meeting with Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, especially in wake of the latter’s statement that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

A senior Fatah official also criticized Fayyad for meeting with Romney, noting that the presidential candidate had not included Ramallah in his recent tour.

The official told The Jerusalem Post that Romney’s refusal to meet with PA President Mahmoud Abbas during his visit was “unacceptable.”

Romney, the Fatah official said, “Apparently does not recognize President Abbas as the elected president of the Palestinians.”

Fayyad was quoted Monday as saying that this was the second time that he had met with Romney.
