Netanyahu to Abbas: Come to the Knesset

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during his speech to the UN General Assembly on Thursday, inviting him to address the Israeli people at the Knesset in Jerusalem, "instead of condemning it at the UN."
Netanyahu added that he was prepared to address the Palestinian people in Ramallah.
Earlier in his address, Netanyahu poured cold water on international and UN initiatives to bring peace between the two peoples, saying that direct negotiations would be the only way forward.
