Ibrahim Ali, the mayor of the West Bank village of Yatta, the home of the Palestinian terrorist responsible for the Sunday attack that killed Israeli-American Ari Fuld, condemned the terror incident in an interview on Army Radio Monday morning.
"I condemn every act of violence, both against Palestinians and against Israelis," Ali said.
However, he added, Palestinians in the city are living in a state of abject humiliation. "People here are hungry and they have no money to buy food. Their self-respect has been trampled."
"One of the things that causes these attacks is Israeli policy," Ali said.
