'Palestinians' complain to UN about Lieberman

The 'Palestinians' have complained to the United Nations Security Council that Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is 'inciting' people to kill 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen. This is from the first link.
Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour handed a letter to Security Council President, Nigerian Ambassador Joy Ogwu. "We write to express our grave concern over the incitement by Israel's Foreign Minister against H.E President Mahmoud Abbas," the letter stated.

Avigdor Lieberman, who is the main coalition partner of Prime Minister Netanyahu, declared that President Abbas was the 'greatest obstacle' to peace. We unequivocally reject and object to such incitement, which we consider to be a clear threat against the life of President Mahmoud Abbas, whose commitment to peace is absolutely unquestionable. "

Mansour stated, on behalf of the PLO, that the Palestinians regard Lieberman's statements as Israel's official policy. "We voice our concern that these hostile declarations in fact reflect the true intentions of the Israeli government," he wrote. Mansour added that such threats must be directly confronted "for they foment hatred and violence towards the Palestinian people and exacerbate the already high tensions and deep mistrust between the sides."


An Israeli state official said in response, "There is no reason for alarm over such idle threats. We are not engaged in bolstering or weakening Abbas. They have an interest to retain their political and economic power and they won't give that up so soon."
I'm not sure why the 'Palestinian Authority' is so upset. If Abu Mazen is an obstacle to peace like Lieberman says he is, that ought to make him a hero among the 'Palestinians.' What they really want is to destroy the State of Israel.

It is so hypocritical for the PA to claim Lieberman is inciting anything by claiming that abbas is an obstacle to peace while abbas is INCITING his own people to kidnap more IDF soldiers in order to blackmail Israel into releasing more terrorists. Why doesn't the UN look into abbas' incitement... How about that Holocaust denial too?

His commitment to peace certainly is unquestionable. Unquestionably non-existent.

Why are the Palestinians so upset?

They are the ones who don't want peace with Israel!

And they're the ones abrogating existing agreements with Israel.
