There is no news story that Palestinians don’t try to twist to be about them.
Saeb Erekat, the secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, said that the bombings that targeted churches in the cities of Alexandria, Tanta were “terrible crimes.”
Then he said that they were aimed at Egypt and Egypt’s principles, including Egypt’s support of Palestinians.
This is especially ironic since Palestinian officials, including Erekat, routinely claim that terror attacks like these wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for “occupation” and other Israeli policies. In other words, usually they claim that IS terror attacks are in support of Palestinians, albeit misguided; but when it is in their interest they will claim that IS attacks are actually against Palestinians.
The ironies multiply because Erekat has also justified unprovoked attacks on civilians as “self-defense.” Furthermore, he has said that the PLO will never consider Hamas, well known for its own bombing attacks against civilians, to be a terrorist organization.
