PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat blasted the murder as an “ugly act of terror.”
“He was a really close friend of the family, and I was really shocked,” Erekat told Ma’an. “He was murdered in a very ugly act of terror, and it’s so despicable.”
This coming from a man who has referred to palestinian terrorism as “resistance.”
But it gets better.
“Such a good man, such a great loss. His heart was in the peace process, and I’m sure his heart was also in the building of Libya,” Erekat said.
“Of course, no one tolerates the discrediting of our prophet Mohammad, but what did Stevens have to do with it? That’s really unacceptable,” he said of the alleged motive.
In other words, what made it terror was that someone uninvolved in discrediting Mohammad was killed. Otherwise, the reaction was fine.
