Palestinian diplomat raps attempt to link terrorism to Islam

Indian Muslims wrote Palestine's permanent envoy to the United Nations (UN) and Ambassador to Austria Zohair Al-Wazir condemned any attempts to link terrorism and Islam on Friday.
The link is established by what the terrorists themselves say.
"The Palestinian people are a stark reminder of life under occupation and state terrorism as practiced by the Israeli against them, their sanctities and lands over long decades," Al-Wazir told KUNA on the sidelines of the first anti-terrorism forum here.
The "occupation is a result of arab countries attacking Israel, and it winning the land as it pushed back against the attack, but they have been given many opportunities to end that "occupation". All they have to is stop trying to kill their neighbors, and make peace with Israel.
"The Palestinian people are against all forms of terrorism,” he said, asserting the need to uproot all causes of terrorism including oppression and state terrorism.
Does that include suicide bombers and firing rockets to kill anyone they can, regardless of who is hit?
"Among the roots of terrorism are the adoption of double standards in dealing with political issues, occupation, and infringement on human rights. "The Palestinian delegation to the forum renewed commitment to the resolution of the Arab League foreign ministers' meeting of March on opposition to all forms of terrorism and all attempts to link this global phenomenon to Islam. "Islam advocates tolerance, moderation and coexistence," he pointed out.
As long as Sharia law is in control, and as long as the people they are allowing to live have accepted a second class position, and pay a major tax to the Muslims.
Palestine is for launching a global anti-terrorism centre to coordinate the efforts of world countries and regional organizations in this field, Al-Wazir said.
You have got to be kidding.
Government officials and experts from around the world met in the Austrian capital, Vienna on Thursday to discuss means of fighting terrorism, in the first anti-terrorism forum. Head of the crime prevention and anti-narcotics office of the UN Jean-Paul Laborde told KUNA the two-day forum would discuss issues related to the international strategy against terrorism and enhancement of security measures at local, regional and international levels.
