JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday that Israel has provided France with intelligence related to the perpetrators of Friday’s six coordinated terror attacks in Paris—which killed at least 129 people—and intelligence about other terrorist plots in Europe.

“Israel stands shoulder-to-shoulder with France in this joint battle against militant Islamic terrorism,” Netanyahu said. “I’ve instructed Israel’s security and intelligence forces to assist their French counterparts and their counterparts from other European countries in any way possible.”

The Islamic State terror group claimed responsibility for Friday’s attacks.

“Terrorism is the deliberate and systematic targeting of civilians,” said Netanyahu. “It can never be justified. Terrorism must always be condemned. It must always be fought. Innocent people in Paris, like those in London, Madrid, Mumbai, Buenos Aires, and Jerusalem, are the victims of militant Islamic terrorism, not its cause. As I’ve said for many years, militant Islamic terrorism attacks our societies because it wants to destroy our civilization and our values.”

“I call on the entire civilized world to unite to defeat the plague of worldwide terrorism,” he added. “An attack on any one of us should be seen as an attack on all of us.”
