‘Radical Islam is our enemy’

“Radical Islam is our enemy,” Netanyahu says.

“Not ordinary Islam,” he emphasizes.

“The radicals want to destroy Islam as well, but first and foremost they hate the West. It is no coincidence the radicals have wanted to destroy Israel since the day it was founded, because Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.”

The crowd continues to cheer at the prime minister’s words.

“The radical Islamists do not hate the West because of Israel; they hate Israel because it is an integral part of the modern world.”

Netanyahu says that Israel is an island of democracy in a sea of hate that threatens to drown the entire region.

“But not only we are being attacked,” he continues. “Look around, the whole world is under attack.” He cites several terror attacks that occurred over the past years, including the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.
