    RAMALLAH, West Bank, Nov 16 (Reuters) - The Palestinian Authority on Sunday condemned the bombings of two Istanbul synagogues as "barbaric and sinful".

    "The Palestinian people and government and President Yasser Arafat express their sympathy with Turkey, the Jewish community and the families of the victims," the Palestinian Authority said in a statement.

    It said Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie had asked the Palestinian ambassador in Turkey to express the Authority's "condemnation of the barbaric and sinful attack" on Saturday that killed at least 22 people and wounded more than 240 on the Jewish Sabbath.

    In a condolence letter sent to the Ankara government, Arafat condemned "the cowardly act that contravenes all religious teachings and human values", the statement said.

    Arafat, accused by Israel of fomenting violence in a three-year-old Palestinian uprising, has also condemned Palestinian suicide bombings that have killed hundreds of Israelis. Arafat denies encouraging attacks on Israelis.
