Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Monday praised the US administration and its armed forces for killing al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
"As someone who was Israel's Ambassador to the US during the formative years of the War on Terror, I can testify how hard the administrations in Washington worked to bring bin Laden and other al Qaida leaders to justice," said Ayalon. "This is a vital psychological tipping point in the War on Terror and will send a clear message to terrorists and extremists everywhere that they are not immune."
"This successful operation proves that sometimes the West needs to take extraordinary measures to defeat terror and provide security for its citizens," he added.
