Foreign Minster Avigdor Lieberman said Friday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's address to the United Nations General Assembly was a "speech of incitement."

Speaking with Channel 2 news, Lieberman said that Israel had no choice but to press ahead "without paying attention, and without making threats."

The foreign minister defended Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's government, saying this administration has offered intitatives to the Palestinians since "day one."

He said the Netanyahu offered a two-state solution, stopped settlement construction for 10 months, removed checkpoints, and gave assistance to the Palestinian economy.

After all these gestures, Lieberman said, the "Palestinian Authority has ignored this."
