Abbas accuses Israel of committing "state terrorism" in Gaza flotilla confrontation

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the Palestine Investment Conference in Bethlehem:
"This is not the first time that Arab, Islamic and world blood has been mingled with Palestinian blood in the Palestinian people's long journey of struggle, continuing over the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. The Freedom Flotilla is not the first serious attempt to support the Palestinian people… Everyone who took part in the Freedom Flotilla will henceforth hold Palestinian citizenship, because this was an honorable act in which the whole world participated… Over the last few days our people have been subjected to state terrorism, with Israel attacking the Freedom Flotilla. Our people, and the entire world, are currently facing this terror and refuse to let it continue."
