Sir, — It was deeply disappointing to see Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas recently criticize Israel for killing wanted Islamic Jihad terrorists, one of whom orchestrated two suicide bombings killing 10 Israelis in February and July of this year (Katyusha fired at Galilee, 2 Kassams at Sderot, August 26).
If Abbas is serious about rejecting violence and promoting peace with Israel it seems he would instead be supporting Israels elimination of terrorists. Clearly these violent actions by Palestinian terrorists only undermine Abbass own stated policy of reconciliation with Israel.
