Those who do not condemn terrorism, support it, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting.

A day after the suicide bombing in Istanbul that killed four people, including three Israelis, Netanyahu said that terrorism “sows death and destruction throughout the world.”

Israel, he said, is at the front of the struggle against terrorism, and that this struggle, while first and foremost a military one, is also a moral one.

“The key in the moral fight against terrorism is to make clear that terrorism – the killing of innocent people – has no justification anywhere, not in Istanbul, the Ivory Coast or Jerusalem,” the prime minister said. “Those who do not condemn terrorism, support terrorism.”

Referring to the report broadcast last week on Channel 2 showing Breaking the Silence activists trying to get former IDF soldiers to reveal classified military information, Netanyahu said that attempts to defame IDF soldiers are wrong in their own right, “but the effort to collect intelligence information is insufferable, and is being dealt with by the relevant authorities.”
