At a ceremony honoring victims of terror attacks Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took aim at Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Monday afternoon.

"President Abbas, how can you speak of peace with Israel while financing murderers," Netanyahu asked, referencing the fact that the Palestinian Authority provides stipends to terrorists and their families. Netanyahu questioned how Palestinian terrorists received a heroes treatment.



"How can someone be considered a hero, after taking a knife and stabbing children in their sleep, such as Hillel Ariel?" Netanyahu asked.
