Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman issued a statement following the attack in Jerusalem last night. Lieberman wrote that "Hadas Malka fought with determination and heroism in the terrorist; she is a role model for all of us. Her short life story and her desire to contribute as much as possible are the result of her education and values."
Lieberman added "we will continue to fight with all our might against the cruel Palestinian terrorism and the unbridled incitement that
feeds it, and we will persecute the perpetrators and planners of the attacks everywhere.
The thunderous silence of the Palestinian Authority, which refuses to condemn terrorism, and at the same time an announcement by Fatah headed by Mahmoud Abbas that Israel murdered three innocents yesterday proves that there is no (peace) partner on the (Palestinian) side."
