Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour reportedly sent a condolence letter on Friday night to the families of the Palestinian terrorists who carried out Tuesday’s attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, according to Channel 2.
The purported letter was addressed to the families of east Jerusalem cousins Abed Abu Jamal and Ghassan Muhammad Abu Jamal, whose attack lead to the deaths of four rabbis and a police officer at the Kehilat Bnei Torah Synagogue in Har Nof.
Police shot dead the two terrorists during an exchange of fire at the synagogue’s entrance.
“I ask that Allah will surround them with abundant mercy and satisfaction, and give you all patience, solace and recovery from your grief,” Channel 2 quoted the letter from Ensour as saying.
The letter came days after the Jordanian parliament paid respects by observing a minute of silence and reading verses from the Koran for the two Palestinians.
“In regards to the martyrs that smashed and murdered the Zionists, I am asking for this respected parliament to stand up and read the al-Fatiha (the prayer at the beginning of the Koran) to glorify their pure souls and to glorify the souls of all the of the martyrs in the Arab and Islamic nation,” a Jordanian parliament member said during the commemoration of the murderers.
