During a special Knesset session honoring the memory of assassinated minister Rehavam Ze'evi, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah to "stop incitement coming from the Palestinian Authority, both in regards to the Temple Mount and in regards to legitimate self-defense as exercised by Israel."

"You must fight extremism," Netanyahu said, directing his remarks to Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas.

The prime minister told the Palestinians that "you will bear responsibility" if "the deterioration in the security situation comes about as a result of incitement."
