Abbas UN Speech 'Defamatory, Venomous': Israel
AFP - Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's speech before the General Assembly ahead of its vote on upgrading Palestinian UN status was "defamatory and venomous," Israel charged on Thursday.
"The world watched a defamatory and venomous speech that was full of mendacious propaganda against the IDF (army) and the citizens of Israel," said a statement issued by the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
