Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in a post to his Facebook page that radical Islam extremism is the common link connecting Thursday’s attack to the terror attacks in Paris last week.
“The murderous terror has struck Gush Etzion and Tel Aviv,” he writes. “My heart is with the families of the murdered and I send my wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded. Behind these terrorist attacks stands radical Islam, which seeks to destroy us, the same radical Islam that struck in Paris and threatens all of Europe. Whoever condemned the attacks in France needs to condemn the attacks in Israel. It’s the same terror. Whoever does not do this is a hypocrite and blind.
“There is no immunity for terrorists: We will hold them to account, we will exact a price from their families, we will destroy their homes, and we will cancel their citizenship. This campaign didn’t start yesterday, and won’t end tomorrow. We have been wrestling with terror for 100 year already and the fight will continue with determination.”
