The State Department issued an explicit condemnation of the naming of a square in a West Bank town for a Palestinian terrorist. "We are disturbed by reports that a town square in the West Bank has been renamed in honor of Dalal Mughrabi, who was a terrorist responsible for an attack that killed 35 Israelis in 1978," Mark Toner, the State Department's spokesman, said Thursday. "We condemn this commemoration of terrorism and have conveyed our deep concern about this incident to senior officials in the Palestinian Authority and have urged them to address it. We underscore that all parties have an obligation to end any form of incitement."
