Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said in a statement, "This afternoon a brutal terrorist attack occurred, which constitutes a direct continuation of increasing violence influenced by the incitement of the Palestinain Authority. At the beginning of the week the Palestinians openly published and declared that they have abandoned the peace negotiations and intend to act unilaterally towards the international community and declare a Palestinian State without the consent of the parties. The declaration of abandonment of the peace process is a green light to terrorism and we will not agree to this."
Ayalon called upon the foreign media and international community to publicly condemn the murderous acts of terror and to pressure Palestinians to abandon their policy of "unilateralism" and to cease the glorification of terrorism.
