Palestinian Islamist group Hamas condemned Saturday the killing of 12 people in a shooting attack this week on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo's offices by two French Islamists.

A statement in French said Hamas "condemns the attack against Charlie Hebdo magazine and insists on the fact that differences of opinion and thought cannot justify murder."

It also rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's comments, in which he compared the Paris attack to Hama firing rockets from the Gaza Strip at civilians in Israel.

"Hamas condemns the desperate attempts by... Netanyahu to make a connection between our movement and the resistance of our people on the one hand and global terrorism on the other," it said.

corrupt analogy
Israel stole the Palestinians' homelamd, murdered them, destroyed their homes, bulldozed their fields and expelled millions of them to the four winds. And now it has the audacity of accusing them of terror. That is beyond the pale.
