Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett pinned the blame for Wednesday's stabbing attack on a Tel Aviv bus – which left nine people injured – solely on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"The man responsible for the terror attack in Tel Aviv this morning is the same person seen marching among world leaders only a week ago in Paris," Bennett said, referencing Abbas' participation in an unprecedented march in honor of victims of Islamist terrorist attacks in France.

"When Abu Mazen incites against Jews day and night on television, when [he] names town squares after murderers and gives financial rewards to the killers of Jews – he becomes the mastermind and the terrorists his messengers,” the economy minister  said.

Bennett added that Israel must halt the transfer of all tax funds to the PA chief, whom he called an outright terrorist, “so long as he continues to fund the families of terrorists.”
