International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz criticized Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's speech at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, saying Abbas is condemning Israel's fight against terror instead of condemning the killing of two IDF soldiers in the past week, Israel Radio reported.

Steinitz told Israel Radio that he expected a speech recognizing Israel as a Jewish state rather than ignoring that fact.
