Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon blasted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas following his address to the United Nations General Assembly Thursday, in which he accused Israel of committing “extrajudicial killings” of Arabs, and claimed “Israeli aggression against our Muslim and Christian holy sites.”

Ambassador Danon condemned the Palestinian Authority leader, warning that his speech could incite young Arabs to violence against Jews.

“Abbas chose to use the UN pulpit to represent Palestinian terror. His dangerous words are sure to lead to even more terror attacks against Israel. The Palestinian youth listening to his speech today, will be the terrorists of tomorrow.”

The Israeli Ambassador added that there is a direct link between Abbas’s hateful words, and the increase in terror attacks in Israel.

“Abbas’s words are like a ticking time-bomb,” Ambassador Danon added.
