Netanyahu in Paris: Our Common Enemy is Radical Islam

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Sissyk (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

“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.”

8. I dont know about them but one area I disagree with him on is

where he said "It sees Israel, and rightly so, as an island of democracy, justice and Western tolerance" because Israel has not been behaving like its a bastion of justice and tolerance itself with some of its actions.
Israel can of course choose to become such a bastion but to do that it will have to admit things like it was wrong to take some of the actions it took in shelling innocents and destroying their homes as well as it was wrong to force people off their land to make settlements for Israelis.

11. Oh please, I never said they had to roll over and die so cut the BS.

What they need to do is stop behaving like assholes because only assholes deliberately bomb and destroy entire areas where they know civilians are to kill a handful of other assholes.

15. If only they would stop engaging in genocide.

Because that's what killing a specific group of civilians is based on ethnic background.

Then he can throw stones.

10. his attempt to use this for political gain.

Netanyahu is attempting to use this to paint the palestinian conflict in the same light. It is perfectly transparent. The Jewish community is well integrated in France and the vast majority is hoping for peace in the middle east and do not subscribe to the hard right approach he is employing such as rampant settlement expansion. Today was a day for mourning the victims, not chest thumping l.

13. Sometimes the enemy of our enemy

is also our enemy.

I take a strong exception to this part: "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"

I think it had more to do with the Europeans throwing people out of their homes and declaring a new nation in the middle of their lands.

Yeah, they hate Israel cause of their freedoms. Where have I heard that before?

Poor victims...
