Intel minister: Terrorists held axes, but Abbas' voice behind Jerusalem synagogue attack

Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for a terror attack carried out by axe and gun-wielding assailants at a Jerusalem synagogue.
"The hands that held the axes were those of the terrorists, but the voice is that of Abu Mazen [Abbas]," charged Steinitz.
"Whoever calls for Muslims to defend Al-Aksa Mosque by all means against the Jews - was directly responsible for the horrible pogrom at the synagogue in Har Nof, and the wave of attacks and bloody riots in Jerusalem," he added.
