The Palestinian Authority charged Friday that recent statements made by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman against PA President Mahmoud Abbas constitute incitement and he should be prosecuted in international courts for extremism.

In recent weeks Liberman has repeatedly said that no diplomatic progress was possible with Abbas at the PA helm. Some two-weeks ago he dispatched a letter to Quartet members calling for elections to be held in the Palestinian Authority and the selection of a “new, legitimate, hopefully realistic Palestinian leadership.”

On Friday, the PA Information Ministry stated that Liberman had "crossed every red line in his continuous incitement against Abbas," according to the Bethlehem-based Ma'an News Agency. The PA Information Ministry went on to accuse Liberman of calling for the assassination of Abbas.

The ministry said that Liberman should be charged at the International Criminal Court at the Hague, calling on the EU, US and UN to take action against his "continuous incitement," according to Ma'an.
