The Anti-Defamation League on Monday condemned Rabbi Ovadia Yosef's Saturday comments in which he stated that “Abu Mazen and all these evil people should perish from this world … God should strike them with a plague, them and these Palestinians.”

The ADL called Yosef's comments "offensive and incendiary," cautioning that his words contribute to a potentially dangerous environment of intolerance and hatred.”

The statement added that the comments were particularly out of place coming on the eve of renewed peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
