“The recent terrorist attacks are the result on ongoing incitement by the PA (Palestinian Authority”, stated Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked when asked to comment on the security situation of late.
Speaking to Kan Reshet Bet Radio, she added “The funds for the PA must be offset, and we must make certain funds given do not fall in the hands of the terrorists”.
Shaked then commented on remarks released by PA Chairman Abu Mazen, who labeled US Ambassador to Israel “A son of a dog, settler”.
“This is unacceptable in the world of diplomacy, and here in our region, too, it is a disgrace. Abu Mazen was a Holocaust denier in the past, and to express such a statement against the US ambassador in Israel, who is also Jewish, has an anti-Semitic flavor,” Shaked added.
