The Palestinian Authority (PA) has attacked Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) over comments he made recently calling Palestinians a “threat” to Israel that has been repeatedly defeated, reports The Hill.

Schumer made the remarks at a fundraiser for a religious Jewish welfare organization late last month, vowing to push for new sanctions against Iran and get the country to give up “all enriched uranium.”

“The hawkish rhetoric from the Senate’s No. 3 Democrat clashes with the Obama administration’s diplomatic push for a nuclear deal with Iran and an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord,” says The Hill, which notes Schumer is Jewish.

“Israel has a lot of threats, and it’s had many threats since its inception,” Schumer told the OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services gala in a video filmed by the Jewish news website JP Updates. “But there is only one threat, because every time the Arab world — the Palestinians — have risen against us, we have risen to defeat them. But the one existential threat to Israel’s existence is a nuclear Iran.”

The PA delegation sent Schumer a formal protest letter on Monday.
