Netanyahu "Disappointed" Abbas Met with Terrorist

The Prime Minister's Office announced that they were "disappointed" that Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas met with Amna Muna in Turkey. Mark Regev, the official spokesman for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called it an "unfortunate decision." Muna was released by the Israeli government as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal. She was instrumental in the kidnapping and murder of a 16-year-old Jewish-Israeli in 2001.
