"Palestine News Network" calls B'Tzelem "Right Wing"

The "Palestine News Network" reports on a press release by B'Tzelem, that condemns Qassam rocket attacks against Israeli civilians and calls for the PA to stop such attacks.

PNN's comment (in a "news" story, in Arabic) was that
This aroused attention to the fact that B'Tselem adopted the view of the Israeli government and the rightist parties in Israel, also by saying that Israel has the right and duty to defend its citizens.

PNN is sympathetic with Fatah more than with Hamas, so this is a reasonable indication of how most Palestinian Arabs think - that Israel has no right whatsoever to defend its citizens from being wantonly murdered at Arab will, and not even to ask the PA to stop the rockets!
