SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

King Hassan of Morocco said today that the terrorist murder of 11 Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich was “disastrous to the cause of the Palestinians.” The Arab ruler appeared on a BBC interview, his first ever given to a British media. He said, “We must distinguish between terrorist agitators and genuine fighters for a cause. Those who perpetrated the Munich horror are terrorist agitators. Their Munich misdeed is disastrous to the cause of the Palestinians. But we must remember that it is very difficult to ask all Palestinians to be patient at all times.”
