“Israel strongly condemns yesterday’s terrorist attack in Istanbul,” the prime minister said. “All civilized nations must stand together to fight the scourge of terrorism.”

Israel’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that all Israelis living or visiting in Istanbul had been in contact with their families and confirmed they were safe.

Israel Consul to Istanbul Shai Cohen said Tuesday evening there were no Israelis listed on the casualty rolls at the hospital where victims were transported following the attack at the airport.

  1. you know, I look at Bibi’s face, and I want to cry, I totally get that excruciating yearning for peace and acceptance. It’s really sad. Every time there is a terror attack in any country around the world, Bibi comes out and askes the Jew hating world to unite against terror while they blame Israel for all the terror. while attacks in Israel are NEVER mentioned by any other leader in the world to unite against terror at all.

  2. It appears only Israel has the presence of mind to realize the truth and danger of terrorism. The rest of the world thinks "poverty" is causing this manicial horror, first proposed as their reason for butchering by Barak Obama.

  3. Israel just had to part with $20m for the actions on the Marvi Mamara, now to join hands with these people doesn't make sense. So now Israel is showing Turkey a way to better airport security? – What will Turkey do for Israel? – still slither into Israeli waters with armaments disguised as phony "aid" for Gazans? – it is bound to happen – It would be nice if the Knesset supported even more security within Israel. No Jew should be subjected to the evil of random massacres by these vermin.

  4. It really does appear that the rest of the world has not tuned in to the threat of terrorism eminating from Muslim fanatics. However, the tide is turning slowly, many people are now becoming aware that if they wish to stay alive and have a country they must take a stand. Brexit being one of them, The rise of Trump being the other.
