Abbas’ Confidant: Netanyahu Making Cynical Use of Abduction


Muhammad al-Madani, head of the committee in charge of the Palestinian Authority’s relations with Israel thought to be close of Mahmoud Abbas, refuted on Sunday the words of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who had said that the Palestinian Authority was responsible for the abduction of the three yeshiva (Torah academy) high school students by terrorists.

“Netanyahu is making cynical use of this difficult event,” al-Madani told IDF Radio. He added that “Netanyahu found political opportunity within this saga to shed tears over the fate of the boys, in order to… amass political points at the expense of both Israeli and ‘Palestinian’ tears.”
