Liberman to South Korean colleague: Seoul understands better than most what Israel faces

Friday's mortar attack from Gaza was the terrorist organizations' answer to the EU High Court of Justice's decision last week to take Hamas off the EU's list of terrorist organizations, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Monday.
Liberman, speaking before a meeting with visiting South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se, said that South Korea understands better than most Israel's challenges and the meaning of having a threatening and menacing neighbor.
“Just last Friday a rocket was fired from Gaza into communities in the south,” Liberman said. “That was the response of the terrorist organizations in Gaza to the court decision in Europe to take Hamas off the terror list. As South Korea knows from its challenges, in the struggle against terrorism it is forbidden to send a message of weakness, and it is forbidden to give any concessions to terrorism.”
