Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned against the rising tide of extremism in the world on Sunday, asserting that the Islamic State, Hamas, al-Qaida, the Nusra Fronta, Boko Haram and Hezbollah are all "branches of the same poison tree."

Speaking during a meeting with a visiting Israel Bonds leadership delegation, Netanyahu said that all of the groups in question share the same ideology. "The main difference between ISIS [Islamic State] and Hamas is that these guys cut off heads, while the other guys shoot at heads."
