Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen sent a letter over the weekend to the family of Mu’ataz Hijazi, who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick and who was subsequently eliminated by a SWAT team that raided his home. Abu Mazen expressed sorrow about the incident, blaming his death on Israel.
Israel will not remain indifferent to the process. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly condemned the Palestinian Authority Chairman, stressing that “while we are trying to calm the situation, Abu Mazen is sending letters of condolences over the death of someone who tried to implement an abhorrent murder. It is time for the international community to condemn him for his actions.”
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman condemned the Palestinian Authority Chairman even stronger than Netanyahu: “The letter of support transferred by Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen to the family of the terrorist that shot Yehuda Glick more than testifies that Abu Mazen is indeed a partner for terrorists and murderers.”
“The despised letter of Abu Mazen openly supports and encourages further killings,” he stressed. “I call upon the international community to denounce this man that leads the Palestinian-Israeli conflict with violence and threats.”
