Netanyahu: ‘The Malignancy of Militant Islam Is Growing and Spreading’

“Between the United States and the West, and the rising powers in the East,” says Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “there is a malignancy of militant islam . . . [that] is growing and spreading. It’s sending its tentacles to the West.”

“I wrote 20 years ago that you will see domestic international terrorists, because you will see them send people — jihadists — to live in the West to raise jihad against the West,” said Netanyahu on Face the Nation, “and unfortunately that has come about.”

But an even greater danger exists, he says: “that they will marry their mad ideologies to weapons of mass death. That is a threat not only to my people — the Jewish people and the Jewish state of Israel — but to your people.”

“They view us as one because of our tolerant societies. They think us weak and corrupt. We understand the value of diversity and human freedom and choice. They abhor it. They want to wipe us away. If they had the weapons to wipe us away, they will try. They will fail, ultimately, as did the Nazis, but they took down tens of millions of people with them, and that should not happen again.”
