In the wake of the brutal slaughter of 13-year-old Hallel Ariel at the hands of a Palestinian terrorist who entered her bedroom on Thursday and stabbed her to death, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a video in which he called on the international community to combat the radical Islamic phenomenon.

“Today, each of us is going to fight back,” Netanyahu said in the clip, which he posted on his official Facebook page. “I ask you to walk into your child’s bedroom before they go to sleep. I ask you to hug them. I ask you to kiss them. Teach them that the values that Hallel’s murderer most detested – freedom, diversity, pluralism – will never die; we’ll always hold them dear. Tell them that we will never let fear, evil and terror triumph; that we will always stand for justice. And this is how we will fight back.”

The world must fight terrorists, their backers and those who incite to violence, Netanyahu said, adding, “We fight back by making sure that our collective moral compass doesn’t waver even a millimeter.”

Three Israelis Stabbed to Death by Palestinian Terrorist During Shabbat Dinner in West Bank Settlement

Three Israelis were stabbed to death and another was seriously wounded on Friday night by a knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist who...

The prime minister released the video message after the girl’s murder in her Kiryat Arba home. The terrorist was identified by the Palestinian Health Ministry as 19-year-old Muhammed Taraiyreh, from the West Bank town of Bani Naim. He was shot dead by a local rescue team.

“Why would any person do this?” Netanyahu asked rhetorically. “You don’t murder a sleeping child for peace. You don’t slit a little girl’s throat to protest a policy you don’t like. You do this because you’ve been brainwashed. You’ve been brainwashed by a warped ideology that teaches you that this child isn’t human. We will not let barbarism defeat humanity.”

He also said that “defeat[ing] the scourge of radical Islamist terror” will defend and honor Hallel Ariel’s dignity.

Watch his full message below.

    ITS NOT RADICAL ISLAM .

    Hello!!

    Again, what is the common denominator in all of these atrocities? It is Islam, not radical Islam, but Islam. This is not terrorism, it is jihad. This is the example set by the Prophet of Islam. Everything we are seeing, Muhammad did. Everything we are seeing, Muhammad advocated and commanded.

    It is sickening to see the Islamic apologists trying to tell us that this is not the true Islam. This has been the way of Islam from its foundation.

    this is a fact , the world supports Islamic terrorism if they target Jews , it does not matter if you live in Israel or not . Jews in Europe can vouch for that .

    The Palestinians are a Muslim terrorist group , nothing more collective punishment ? WTF the Palestinian government supports the terrorism .

    I read that Israel want to provide economic incentives for Palestinians. what’s going on here ?
    Israel supplies power and water to Palestinians ?
    sorry but Israeli Politian’s are appeasing terrorism just like the Un does .

    what does never again mean . the Muslims have the same plans for Israel .
