Liberman responds to Abbas apology

JERUSALEM - Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Friday rejected Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' apology for his remarks on Jews.

Abbas, 82, said on Friday it "was not my intention" to offend Jews. But Lieberman wrote on Twitter: "Abbas is a wretched Holocaust denier, who wrote a doctorate of Holocaust denial and later also published a book on Holocaust denial. That is how he should be treated. His apologies are not accepted."
