Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday said that Israel was facing two primary enemies - "extremist Shi'ite Islam led by Iran and its satellites, and the Sunni version which is currently led by Islamic State."

Speaking at a toast honoring the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Mossad spy agency, the prime minister said that "while Israel cannot solve all of the main problems in the Middle East, they are revealing themselves in full force."

Although Sunnis and Shi'ites are in conflict with one another, "there is one thing that they agree on, and that is that we don't have a place in this Muslim realm, as they see it," the premier said.
