Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is intentionally turning the Arab-Israeli conflict into a religious one between Muslims and Jews, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman charged Tuesday, shortly after the murderous attack on a Jerusalem synagogue.

The foreign minister said Abbas was doing this through wild incitement, including characterizing Jews as “impure” and unable to go up to the Temple Mount, which gives the green light for these types of attacks.

“The international community must denounce the anti-Semitic words of Abu-Mazen [Abbas] that leads to horrible acts of slaughter like that carried out this morning in a synagogue, and make it clear to him that those who act in this way cannot be a legitimate statesman,” he said.
