"Relax, it's just an ugly reality," writes former adviser to the Palestinian Authority.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed his condolences Sunday to his Japanese counterpart and the people of Japan following the brutal murder of a Japanese citizen by a terrorist from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Friday.

“Last week, during Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Israel, I told him that the struggle against extremist Islamic terrorism is a joint struggle and only if we are united will we be able to emerge victorious,” Netanyahu said at the start of Sunday’s weekly cabinet meeting.

“Israel stands alongside Japan and the Japanese people in this difficult hour.”

The prime minister also noted that International Holocaust Remembrance Day is being marked this week, as well as the day marking the Struggle Against Anti-Semitism. Netanyahu related both to the spread of terror to other populations as well.

He pointed out that last year there was an increase in anti-Semitic incidents, and that a wave of anti-Semitism currently is flooding parts of the world, particularly in Europe – but that history has shown that violence that begins against the Jews does not stop with the Jews.

“It is like a brush fire that spreads very rapidly to all societies and all citizens,” he said.

A series of combined terror attacks carried out over a three-day period in Paris earlier this month by operatives from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and members of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) aimed at a list of both Jewish and non-Jewish targets. Some four million people gathered together for a unity march in Paris to protest the attacks and those who carried them out, as demonstrators gathered simultaneously in solidarity with the victims in other cities around the world.

In the weeks that have followed, radical Islamist extremists have been picked up in connection with terrorist activities during police raids in Belgium, France, Germany and elsewhere in Europe.

  1. Jews, Israelis and Zionists are the canary in the coal mine Everything that happens to them happens to everyone else years later. Japan is a major supporters of the Palestinians. Arabs are never grateful for favors. Like all primitives, they see it as a confirmation of everyone elses duty to do favors for them because of their superiority and the giver's weakness.

    Exactly the wrong message. But not if the giver doesn't get it.

  2. Miss McMullen, is Khalid a member of ISIS? Or why are you talking about “[his] stupid people”? And a second question: Is there a proof that Muslims have a psychological disability to have emotions? Are there studies proving this?

  3. Shadows! Look at the shadows. The light source on the faces of the two men seems to come from different directions. I haven’t heard any news agencies report on how authentic (or not) this picture is. It looks Photoshopped to me.

  4. Those children are murdered by Hamas and their oen parents: Hamas puts them before Israeli fire when Israel justifiedly retaluiates ar uses those children, because they are small, to build the tunnels to attack Israel. Thise children’s parents sell them, according to a ficture, to Hamas, depending on whether a child is not wouded, but cries before cameras, or he dies, in which case he is turned into a martyr and Hamas arrangest ours to know the”Martyr’s House”. Besides Khalid, how come that you people always find, or think they find, excuses for violent acts carried out by your terrorists, bur start wailing when those same acts fall back on you? How many times dis you criticize Hamas for launching rockets against unarmed Israli population and hurt or killed children, even toddlers?
