Benjamin Netanyahu participated Wednesday in the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference, taking a moment to show solidarity with France.

The Israeli prime minister spoke at the event to the French ambassador to Israel, Patrick Maisonnave, saying:

“The beasts increasingly have a name – it is radical Islam. That is what is doing the killing, the murder, the rape, the burning, the beheadings. [inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”@Jspace_News” suffix=”-Bibi”]We must stand together and fight together militant Islam.[/inlinetweet]”
