JNS.org – Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan on Friday slammed Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the 75th United Nations General Assembly, saying that “Abu Mazen understands his time is up.”

“I just watched Abu Mazen’s [Abbas’s] speech here at the [75th] UN General Assembly—a speech, that as usual is saturated with lies and incitement against Israel,” said Erdan in a video statement posted on social media.

“But what stood out the most about it is that he understands his time is up,” said Erdan, who will assume the additional role of Israeli Ambassador to the United States during the next US administration.

“Following the signing of the [Abraham] Accords with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, the Palestinian veto on peace deals with Israel was shattered. All [the speech] revealed to everybody was Palestinian rejectionism.”
