Netanyahu: World is silent as Abbas feeds flames at Temple Mount

reposted from The Jerusalem Post

Prime minister is responding to Mahmoud Abbas' letter to the family of Yehuda Glick's suspected shooter.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas incited to violence at the Temple Mount, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday.

Speaking at a Likud faction meeting, Netanyahu stated: "I am acting in every way to calm the atmosphere around the Temple Mount, but Abbas is adding fuel to the fire."

Netanyahu said Abbas wrote "a letter of encouragement and support" to the family of Mu'taz Hijazi, the man from Abu Tor, Jerusalem suspected of shooting Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick last week.

Police killed Hijazi on Thursday morning as he resisted arrest, shooting at officers.

According to Netanyahu, a letter of condolences to Hijazi's family means Abbas is "encouraging and supporting others who wish to do criminal acts like [shooting Glick]."

"The international community is silent as [Abbas] encourages continued incitement, rioting and violence. We will not be quiet and continue speaking the truth and defending our rights," Netanyahu declared.

Abbas reportedly described Hijazi as a "martyr" in the letter to his family, and wrote that he received with “anger and condemnation the news of the heinous crime committed by the gangs of killing and terrorism in the Israeli occupation army.”

Abbas wrote that the killing of Hijzai has been added to the “crimes of the Israeli occupation army against our people since the nakba (in 1948).”

“This act won’t intimidate our people, but would increase its steadfastness in its homeland,” Abbas wrote in his letter to the family.
