Official PA daily: Crime is Israel's way of life, Netanyahu is of the same ilk as those who murdered Palestinian

Op-ed by Adli Sadeq, regular columnist for ‎Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
‎“Crime has become, for the occupiers, a ‎way of life. There is no difference between ‎those who bomb and kill by shooting, and ‎those who burn an innocent human being ‎and then express sorrow in order to throw ‎dust in the eyes of the enraged world. No ‎forced apology will be accepted from the ‎likes of [Israeli PM] Netanyahu for a crime ‎perpetrated by their ilk, the insane ‎extremists who burn [human beings].”‎

Note: On June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists while they were hitchhiking. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after the abduction. Two days later, Palestinian teen Muhammad Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and burned to death in Jerusalem in a revenge attack by Israeli extremists. Following this murder, Palestinians took to the streets of eastern Jerusalem in violent and continuous protests. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ministers immediately condemned the revenge killing in the strongest terms. Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects on July 6th; under interrogation, three of the suspects confessed to murdering Khdeir.
