Responding to the terrorist atrocities in Brussels, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, "This is a Third World War against our common values. Terrorism must unite Western countries to unite for a determined, creative, and uncompromising fight against its origins, funders, and operators."
Western culture is under attack from extremist Islamic terrorism, which is relentless and indiscriminate, Ya'alon added.
Security forces and intelligence agencies from free world states must join forces, the defense minister said.
"If this war is not dealt with using the right tools, at all levels, it will continue to strike and spread destruction," he added.
