Israel’s Lieberman: Abbas is anti-Semite trying to ignite holy war


( Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Saturday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is responsible for the recent unrest in eastern Jerusalem.

Lieberman’s comments came after Abbas suggested on Friday that Jews should be banned from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

In a speech quoted by the official Palestinian news agency WAFA, Abbas said Jewish “settlers” should be prevented from entering the site “by any means.”

“This is our Noble Sanctuary. … They have no right to enter and desecrate it,” Abbas said.

On Saturday, Abbas raised his level of vitriol, referring to Jews who visit the Temple Mount as a “herd of cattle.”

Later on Saturday, Lieberman said that Abbas had again revealed his true face as a “Holocaust denier who speaks about a Palestinian state free of Jews.” The foreign minister added that Abbas was and remains an anti-Semite.

“Behind the suit and the pleasantries aimed at the international community, he is raising the level of incitement against Israel and the Jews and is calling for a religious war,” Lieberman said, according to Israel Hayom.
