Reid Remarks On Violence In Israel

Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement in response to remarks from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas:

“The attacks by Palestinians on innocent civilians, including women and children, are the cowardly acts of terrorists and should be roundly condemned by anyone with a conscience. Instead of making comments that incite violence, President Abbas should join in condemning these acts of terrorism. The Palestinians cannot be partners in peace as long as they commit terrorist acts like these and seek to use the United Nations to circumvent any real peace process. The State of Israel has every right to defend itself and America will always support that right.”
