In the wake of Friday's Land Day protests in Israel and abroad, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Saturday accused Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas of carrying out "political terrorism" against Israel.
"The events of Land Day are an additional expression of the conflict strategy which the Palestinians lead and a continuation of the political terror which Abu Mazen [Abbas] perpetrates against Israel in international forums," Ayalon stated at a cultural event in Bat Yam on Saturday.
Ayalon vowed that Israel would continue to "successfully handle" Palestinian attempts to "force unilateral steps" on Israel "at the UN and on the ground."
The deputy foreign minister said that Israel would increasingly make use of what he termed "E-diplomacy" to spread its message to "many millions in the world, directly and without any middle man."
