Likud MK Ophir Akunis lashed out at Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas calling him a "liar who distorts history", Army Radio reported Saturday. His comments came amidst the stream of reactions to Abbas's speech at the United National General Assembly Friday.

"The Palestinians have always refused peace,"  Akunis said during a cultural event in Herzliya. "They are not interested in negotiations and they do not want Israel to exist as a Jewish state".

Akunis added that "Abu Mazen [Abbas] is a liar,who denies the Holocaust and distorts history, and last night he revealed his true face to the world."
