Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in Jerusalem, telling him that “we are in a battle of civilization against barbarism.”

Using language he regularly returns to, Netanyahu says “Hamas is ISIS, and just as the world united to defeat ISIS, the world has to unite against Hamas, unite with Israel to defeat them,” referring to the Islamic State terror group.

Rutte underlines his “respect for what your team is doing to try to fend off this attack and restore the safety of Israel.”
