The National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) condemned Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas after he belittled
U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, calling him the “son of a dog.”
“The National Council of Young Israel strongly condemns the outrageous comments made by PA President Mahmoud Abbas against U.S. Ambassador David Friedman, which came after the Ambassador denounced Abbas’s failure to condemn several terrorist attacks that resulted in the loss of three Israeli lives,” said NCYI in a statement.
“The National Council of Young Israel believes this response epitomizes the long overdue need for passage of the Taylor Force Act in the Senate to start reducing aid to the Palestinian Authority, as not only are they ungrateful for the aid, but they even publicly lambast the representative of the U.S. in Israel.”
AFSI supports NCYI’s swift condemnation of Abbas’ comments – comments that speak very poorly of him as a “peace partner.” This strengthens AFSI’s ongoing advocacy for the application of SOVEREIGNTY to Judea and Samaria.
PM Netanyahu offered his take on Abbas’ outrageous comments: “Something is happening here that has not happened in decades; perhaps it never happened since the Palestinian Authority was established: The American administration has stopped spoiling the Palestinians. It is demanding from them basic things that should have been demanded a long time ago: Recognize the State of Israel’s right to exist, with the State of Israel being the national state of the Jewish people, stop supporting terrorism, and stop financing and encouraging terrorism.”
