Peres: War on global terror must be taken seriously

President Shimon Peres condemned the deadly Mumbai terror attacks during a speech alongside Italian President Giorgio Napolitano to hundreds of Israeli and Italian businessmen on Thursday. "The terror attacks in India are a clear warning sign to all countries in the world that terror poses a danger to all our children's welfare," he said. "We must take the war on global terror seriously and act decisively and firmly against terror centers spread across the globe, headed by the center of terror in Iran." "Iran openly supports terror, killing and murder, and its sick doctrine crosses all boundaries," continued the president. "The world must unite against terror, and today, we got a painful reminder of the distress terror can cause throughout the world."
