Moral equivalence from Abu Mazen

'Moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen has condemned tonight's terror attack at Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav in Jerusalem. But look closely at what he said:
"President Abbas condemns the attack that targeted the religious seminary in Jerusalem," said a statement released by his office. "The president condemns all attacks that target civilians, whether they are Palestinian or Israeli."
Israel has NEVER perpetrated any attack that targeted 'Palestinian' civilians. And the only Israeli who was ever accused of doing so has been so ostracized that he was not even buried in a cemetery.

Will Israel cut off talks with the "good" terrorist? No, Jewish life in Israel is cheap. Cheap enough that the blood of Israel's enemies is safe from harm.

Not only that, but disregarding the whole moral equivalence problem, I see no condemnation of this attack at all (!), just a generic condemnation of targeted attacks on "civilians"--but this statement here gave me no reason to believe Abbas defines any Israelis, much less these Israelis as civilians. So if the students are not considered by him to civilians at all by Abbas, then there is no condemnation of this act here at all.

Infuriating, I just read in JPost that the talks will go on so as not to punish the moderates and that Mahmoud Abbas condemned attacks on civilians, but here's a MEMRI translation that proves my point in my previous comment--

If "Israelis are not civilians and there are no prohibitions on killing them", then what the hell assurance does Abbas' generic condemnation against attacking civilians have to do with this? Pure obfuscation, using words that mean something totally different to the world than to the Palestinians.
