President Reuven Rivlin criticized Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Wednesday for his Ramallah speech blaming European Jews for the Holocaust.
Speaking during a visit in Ethiopia, Rivlin said: “How can a leader with who expresses such sinister anti-Semitic ideas portray himself as a partner for peace?”
He added: “Anti-Semitism does not create dialogue. There are no negotiations on anti-Semitism. Israel always seeks peace with its neighbors, but will never accept those who do not recognize its right to exist."
