Netanyahu Rips Critics for Linking Terror Wave to Stalled Peace Process

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasted the media at a press conference for giving scant coverage to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ incitement that has culminated in random stabbing attacks against Jews.

“You just saw examples of him lying, barefaced lies. ‘An innocent child executed by Israelis.’ No. He’s not innocent and he wasn’t executed. He tried to murder innocent people, almost succeeded. That’s a lie,” Netanyahu said in reference to the Palestinian version of the story of two teenage cousins who stabbed a man in his 20s then stabbed a boy on his bike outside a candy shop. One attacker was killed and one was injured, and is in good condition while the boy they stabbed is in critical condition — “so the attacker comes out on the cheap,” Bibi noted.
