WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today released the following statement regarding PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ remarks at the U.N. General Assembly this morning, slanderously accusing Israel of conducting a “war of genocide” during the recent conflict in Gaza. 

“Israel's action in Gaza was the just self-defense of a sovereign nation against relentless attacks by radical Islamic terrorists," Sen. Cruz said. “The United States would and should do the same under those circumstances. Rather than bandying baseless accusations against Israel in the United Nations, the Palestinian Authority would do better to expose Hamas' vicious use of civilians as human shields, which is an actual war crime.”
