Someone who refuses to meet President Rivlin and Prime Minister Netanyahu for direct negotiations and spreads a blood libel in the European Parliament falsely claims that his hand is extended in peace.

Until then, Israel will continue to defend itself against Palestinian incitement, which motivates acts of terrorism.”  (Times of Israel)
