Netanyahu: The time has come for the world to unite in the fight against terrorist organizations

PM Netanyahu said that President Trump made the right decision in closing the PLO terror group diplomatic mission in Washington, DC, in a statement at the cabinet meeting Wednesday morning.

“The United States made the right decision to close the PLO offices,” Netanyahu said.

“The Palestinians don’t want to negotiate with us, and at the same time incite violence towards Israel,” he added.

“The world is being challenged by radical Islam, radical Shiites on the one hand led by Iran, and radical Sunnis led by Daesh, but both have a single goal – to eliminate the free societies, as we recognize, to eliminate Israel and in the end to eliminate the West and others as well.

The time has come for the world to unite in the fight against terrorist organizations. It is doing so to a certain extent against Daesh but it is not doing so against Iran. On the contrary, what we are seeing is that while Iran is sending terrorist cells to Europe, European leaders are appeasing – and reconciling with – Iran, in the same week that the terrorist cells were due to carry out their operations, which we helped thwart. This is unacceptable.

The appeasement of Iran abets the relentless assault on the values and security of the free societies, and the time has come for Western governments to join the strong and clear effort by the Trump administration against the terror regime in Tehran.”
