Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid said Wednesday after the terror attack in Istanbul that killed 36 people that it was time for the world to "wake up."

"Twelve million Muslims have been killed by other Muslims since 1948," Lapid said. "The number of people killed during the Arab-Israeli conflict is 0.3 percent of this."

Lapid said that while even this number is too high, most of those killed were part of Arab armies that tried to invade Israeli territory, or terrorists who tried to harm innocent Israeli citizens.

"However, still, the UN, international organizations and the world continue to unhaltingly condemn Israel and are extra careful about any condemnation of Islamic violence," he added. "They are careful like it's fire, until the fire burns them."
