‘Militant Islam threatens us all’ says Likud leader

“We fight to defend ourselves, but in so doing we are also fighting a fanatical ideology that seeks to reverse the course of history and throw the civilized world back into a new dark age. The struggle between militant Islam and modernity – whether fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, India or Gaza – will decide our common future. It is a battle we cannot afford to lose.”

Benjamin Netanyahu explains the Israeli onslaught on the population of Gaza.
