FM: Abbas engaged in political terrorism against Israel

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman accused PA President Mahmoud Abbas of engaging in political terrorism against Israel, in an interview with Israel Radio Thursday. The PA president, he said, poses a greater threat to the Jewish state than the armed terrorism of Hamas.
In the interview, Liberman said we should ask ourselves whether the Palestinians can "deliver the goods," and whether Abbas has any interest in doing so. Liberman also noted that Abbas does not control Gaza and is unable to hold elections in the West Bank, "a reality that puts a question mark over his legitimacy in the eyes of the Palestinians."
