Jordan’s Prime Minister, Abdullah Nsur, on Friday sent a letter of condolences to the families of Ghassan Abu Jamal and Uday Abu Jamal, the two terrorists who murdered five people in a synagogue in Jerusalem this week.
"I ask that Allah surround them with mercy, and give you all patience, solace and recovery from your grief,” Nsur wrote in the letter, according to Channel 2 News.
The letter from the Jordanian Prime Minister comes two days after Jordan's parliament offered a prayer in honor of “the spirit” of the two terrorists.
MP Khalil Attieh requested his fellow representatives to recite the Fatiha, the first chapter of the Koran, for the "spirit of the heroes."
Attieh further declared that the murders in the Jerusalem synagogue were a "natural reaction to the occupation crimes against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians."
Jordan’s minister of media affairs had earlier issued a vague statement on the attack, saying that the government of Jordan "condemns the targeting of civilians, and denounce all acts of violence and terrorism against civilians, no matter who or why it is done."
Nsur has in the past ruled out the possibility that his country would cancel the peace deal with Israel, even when the mainly Islamist parliament demanded that Jordan do so.
