The kidnapping and killing of 16-year-old Palestinian Mohammad Abu Khdair, suspected to be retribution for the murder of three Israeli teenagers, has sparked national criticism of Israel.Future bloc head Fouad Siniora Thursday denounced the suspected revenge killing of the Palestinian teen as a "barbaric murder," blaming "racist" Israeli policies for the violence between Arabs and Israelis.Siniora stressed that the "slaying" of innocent people was rejected regardless of which side they belong to, saying that there was no justification for murder.He also urged the international community to act firmly and curb Israel's expansionist policies, stressing that mere condemnation of Abu Khdair's murder was not enough to defuse tensions.Future MP Bahia Hariri also accused Israel of using savage methods to oppress Palestinians.The two representatives assured Hariri that a much-anticipated 150 elite force would soon be deployed in the Palestinian Ain al-Hilweh camp to quell rising tensions and security incidents.
