Lieberman: Abbas is Trying to Sway Elections

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman criticized Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday over his weekend interview with Channel 2 news in which he declared moderate views. “Abu Mazen is trying to sway the elections in favor of the left,” Lieberman told IDF Radio (Galei Tzahel).

“The attempt to lie to ourselves amazes me every time,” he added.

After telling Channel 2 that he does not demand the “right of return” to Tzfat, where his family once lived, Abbas told Arab-language media in Egypt that he does demand the “right of return” for anyone who wants it.
