In a meeting with the UK’s Foreign Secretary Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his condolences over yesterday’s terror attack in Woolwich, England that left a serviceman dead.

“I want to express my solidarity and the solidarity of the people of Israel with the government and people of Britain following this horrific terrorist attack against a British serviceman in London,” Netanyahu told William Hague.

“We’ve experienced such horrors here, and we sympathize deeply. We both are facing this battle against this savagery and this terrorism in our own countries and throughout the world.”

Hague thanked Netanyahu, telling him ” We will never give in to terror in the United Kingdom, and we know the importance of defeating terrorism. That is well understood here in Israel as well.”

The two are set two discuss a range of issues, including Iran, Syria, and the “peace process.”

“I think that we have a lot on our plate, and I look forward to working with you to achieve these goals of security, peace and stability in our area and beyond,” Netanyahu told Hague ahead of the meeting.

Hague, who met earlier with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is also currently in Israel, as well as officials in Jordan, reiterated that his country supports “sanctions and negotiations [with Iran]” adding that “nobody should doubt our resolve in these matters. And it is important that we discuss the latest reports and developments today and of course we must discuss the crisis in Syria.”

    This has to be a wake up call for the UK. Last evening screened on Channel 4 ‘Islamic Trafficking of English girls under the age of consent. The day after a British Soldier was hacked to death in broad daylight.

    I sincerely hope Hague listens carefully to the advice he will receive from Mr. BN. European foreign Ministers need to discuss problems in their countries with the huge numbers of islamic insurgents, and who affect the future of Europe and Israel.

    Iran will change little after the elections 14th June. Therefore I hope for Israel’s sake Jordan can be persuaded to ally itself to Israel. So long as Saudi’s earn lots of Petro dollars they will continue to finance insurgents by deny involvement.
