FM Liberman: This speech was a flagrant incitement and a verbal attack. It will make clear to all those who live with illusions and are not honest with themselves what are the true intentions of Abbas and what he is striving to reach.

After today’s (Thursday, 27 September 2012) address by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to the UN General Assembly’s General Debate, Deputy Foreign Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Liberman stated that this was a speech of flagrant incitement and a verbal attack. This speech will make clear to all those who live with illusions and are not honest with themselves what are the true intentions of Abbas and what he is striving to reach.

Instead of thanking Israel for saving the Palestinian Authority from financial and humanitarian collapse just a few days ago, Abbas chose to lie and slander Israel. Anyone who heard Abbas’s speech should understand that he does not intend and does not want to be a partner to a settlement with Israel.
