The main aim of Islamist terror is to destroy western societies and nations and to uproot our culture and replace it with a fanatical dictatorship that will set back humanity by many years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a message to the French people following Wednesday's terrorist attack.  Netanyahu said that Israel and borders were not the main targets of the terrorists.

Earlier in the day, assailants stormed the Paris offices of French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people.  

"All free societies must unite to fight this terror," Netanyahu said in written statement.
