The Russian Society of Afro-Asian Peoples' Solidarity is circulating a statement which calls the Palestinian top to be tough and resolute toward the masterminds of today's terror act in Israel. Extremism torpedoes Palestinian national interests by hampering international mediators' work for Palestinian statehood, points out the statement.
Mikhail Margelov, society president and international affairs committee head on the Federation Council, parliament's upper house, appeals to the Israeli top to turn a deaf ear to public calls for urgent harsh reprisals. "Reserve promises the best fruit in the current situation," he said in a RIA Novosti interview.
