Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, on Sunday launched an unprecedented attack on Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, calling him “an enemy of Israel, who educates children to hate Jews and wants to establish a Judenrein” Palestine, Israel’s NRG News reported Monday.

“President Abbas, who wrote a research paper that denies the Holocaust, is the second greatest threat to Israel,” he said, and added that “it is a disgrace to call him a man of peace,” said Dermer, speaking before some 5,000 participants at “A Night to Honor Israel,” held in Washington under the auspices of pro-Israel evangelist pastor, John Hagee.

The ambassador, referring to Abbas’ recent speech at the United Nations General Assembly, in which the Palestinian leader claimed that Israel is inflicting a “genocide” against Palestinians in Gaza, said, “Since 1967, the Palestinian population has doubled four times to three or four million people, and President Abbas dare stand up to the world stage of the United Nations and blames Israel for the Holocaust?! What a shame, what a shame that someone in this world calls Abbas a ‘man of peace,’” Dermer charged.
