The Palestinian Authority is inviting greater Iranian involvement in anti-Israel terrorism in the West Bank while the United Nations remains silent, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet session in Jerusalem on Sunday.

Netanyahu quoted Ramallah’s ambassador to Tehran, who reportedly said that “the Zionist regime is an aggressive, cancerous growth that must be eliminated sooner or later.”

“In recent weeks, we are seeing a more vigorous Iranian effort to deepen terrorist activity in Judea and Samaria,” the premier said. “I’d like to emphasize that it wasn’t a Hamas official who said that, but the ambassador of the Palestinian Authority in Tehran.”

“What does the UN do in response?” the premier said. “Instead of dealing with this incitement, it is giving it a place of honor. This is the same incitement that eventually leads to terrorist acts that we have witnessed of late.”
