Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman sent a letter to a number of his international counterparts on Wednesday, saying that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's incitement - particularly his condolence letter to the family of the terrorist who killed Rabbi Yehuda Glick last week - is responsible for Wednesday's terror attack that a killed a Border Police officer in the capital.

Liberman wrote the letter prior to Wednesday's terror attack, but the attack came before he sent the missive and he updated it to include the latest incident as further proof of Abbas's incitement.

Liberman said that the international community must not be quiet in the face of Abbas's letter to the family of Glick's shooter, which encourages terror and creates a "terrorchratic entity" that leads to more bloodshed.
