The Palestinian Authority has turned into an “incubator for fanatic terrorism” and Israel should consider halting its monthly financial transfers to it, Deputy foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said in the wake of Tuesday morning's multiple terror attacks.
"The blood of Israeli citizens is on the hands of [PA President] Mahmoud Abbas and his colleagues who are inciting children to commit murder,” she said. Hotovely cited Abbas' spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh as “praising and glorifying at 13-year-old Palestinian who set out with a butcher knife to murder Israeli children in a candy shop.”
Hotovely was referring to Monday's attack in Jerusalem's Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood.
Hotovely said that the Foreign Minister is urging donor countries to the PA “to use their influence to effect a cessation in violence and incitement by the Palestinian Authority.”
