The head of Islamic Jihad condemned the London bombings, but said his group has the right to attack Israeli civilians. Ramadan Shalah, whose group killed five Israelis in a recent suicide bombing, was interview by Dubia-based Al-Arabiya television this week and was asked about attacks by Al-Qaida. “I condemn the killing of civilians in London and New York,” he said. “But I do not condemn the killing of civilians in Netanya, because the people in Netanya live on my land.”
