Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas yesterday (Monday). “Stop poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth,” he wrote on his Twitter account in English.

Before his planned meeting with US Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and US Donald Trump’s advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who are coming to Israel in order to discuss renewing the peace process, Netanyahu accused Abbas of supporting terrorism. “Palestinian President Abbas tells the world that he educates Palestinian children for peace. That’s a lie,” Netanyahu tweeted.

“Last week, the Palestinian Authority named a public square after Khaled Nazzal, a Palestinian terrorist chief, who planned the 1974 Maalot massacre in which Palestinian terrorists murdered 22 school children and 4 adults,” Netanyahu wrote, continuing to slam the Palestinian Authority. “Naming yet another public square for a mass murderer teaches Palestinian youngsters to murder Israelis. That’s the very opposite of peace.”

“Not surprisingly, President Abbas’s Fatah movement claimed responsibility for Friday’s lethal stabbing of an Israeli policewoman decorating one of the killers’ houses with flags,” Netanyahu wrote.
