Netanyahu talks terror with world leaders

What did Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discuss with the world leaders he marched with in Paris? According to a statement by his office, the main topic was the need to fight terrorism.

“I marched now in one row with world leaders to unite against terrorism,” Netanyahu says, according to the statement. “I told them against terrorism, any terror, one has to fight to the death.”

A Prime Minister’s Office official says he was referring to the world leaders he spoke to before, during and after the rally. He refused to comment on whether the prime minister spoke with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who was just four spots away from Netanyahu in the front row of the march. The PMO says Netanyahu spoke to French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and sat with Hollande on the bus.
