PA Minister in Trouble for Denouncing Terror Murder

The Palestinian Authority's Minister of Religious Trusts, Mahmoud al-Habash, cancelled a planned visit to Tulkarm Sunday for the dedication of a new mosque, after many dozens of residents demonstrated against him. The protesters were angry at him for an interview in which he denounced the terror attack in which an Israeli police officer was murdered and said that there is no difference between Palestinian blood and Jewish blood.
