Netanyahu in Paris: Our Common Enemy is Radical Islam

“Although the various factions of Islamic extremism are involved in their own local bloody conflicts, including among themselves, they are all driven from the same ambition: to impose a dark despotic regime on the world, to take humanity a thousand years backward. They trample anyone who does not share their beliefs, and at the top of the list are their fellow Muslims, but their greatest hatred is reserved for Western culture, the same culture that respects freedom, equal rights, all the things they so despise,” said Netanyahu.

“Therefore, it is no coincidence that radical Islam has been seeking to destroy Israel since its inception - because Israel is the only Western democracy in the Middle East, because Israel is the only place where Christians, women and minorities are truly safe, the only place which respects human rights in general.

“Well, here's another truth: radical Islam does not hate the West because of Israel. It hates Israel because it is an organic part of the West. It sees Israel, and rightly so, as an island of democracy, justice and Western tolerance in a sea of fanaticism and violence that it wants to impose on the Middle East, Europe and the world,” continued Netanyahu.

Israel, he stressed, is attacked “because of its very existence and essence. But not only we are being attacked. Look around you: the whole world is under attack, the whole world. The World Trade Center in New York, the subways in London and Madrid, tourists in Bali, school children in Russia and Pakistan, a hotel in Mumbai, a shopping mall in Nairobi.”

1. "Netanyahu also thanked Lassana Bathily, the Muslim employee of the Jewish supermarket who saved

several hostages during Friday’s jihadist attack by hiding them in the supermarket’s freezer."

As long as Netanyahu specifies "radical" Islam, which he did, I think most can agree with him. To his credit he did not say that the Islamic faith is 'our common enemy'. Indeed that are other factions in the world that do not like liberal democracy.

2. Bibi, as usual, is a worthless sack of shit.

Israel's problem isn't "radical Islam", it's Palestinian nationalism. Which is only exacerbated by Israel's ongoing occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem and building of illegal settlements.

3. That war criminal should be persona

non grata across the planet. After slaughtering almost 2,000 Palestinians a few months ago, he should be in a cell at the Hague.
