Prosor : Abbas fuels Temple mount fire, UN fans the flames

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor reacted on Friday morning to the UN Security Council’s statement concerning the escalating tensions on in Jerusalem saying that “When the Palestinians set the Temple Mount ablaze, Mahmoud Abbas fuels the fire, and the Security Council fans the flames, it is a recipe for a regional explosion.”

The United Nations Security Council had called for “restraint, refraining from provocative actions and rhetoric and upholding the historic status quo” on Temple Mount on Thursday evening.

The official statement had been expected since Tuesday, when Security Council president Vitaly Churkin had publicly announced that the council would release one.
