      Prosor: Abbas Should Learn from King Hussein

      Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, said on Monday that the Palestinian Authority’s continuing incitement against Israel undermines the prospects for peace.

      Speaking before the first gathering of the UN Security Council for 2014, Prosor called on Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to learn a lesson from Jordan's late King Hussein “whose pictures comforting families who lost daughters in a terrorist attack stand in stark contrast with the pictures of Abbas welcoming Palestinian murderers freed by Israel.”

      Jordan is serving this year as the president of the Security Council, and its Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh was present during Prosor’s speech.
