Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will always be “in the first line of countries” regarding taking care of its security. He’s apparently alluding to critical comments by some Israeli journalists about his having elbowed his way into the front row of the linked-arm march in Paris yesterday.
Writing on Facebook, the prime minister says “a direct line connects extremist Islam attacks throughout the world and the attack that took place” in the HyperCacher supermarket in Paris last week.
“I expect all leaders, after we marched together in the streets of Paris, to fight terror wherever it strikes, also when it is against Israel and Jews. So far as it depends on me, I will always see to it that Israel marches in the first line of countries regarding its security and future.”
