Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a speech Monday night during the memorial ceremony for the victims of the Israeli embassy terror attack in Buenos Aires. During the speech, Netanyahu mentioned the Iran-backed threats Israel is facing and the importance of the global fight against terrorism. “Whoever harms us, we [will] harm him, legally, in the manner accepted by human beings - but the terrorism will win if we don’t fight it,” Netanyahu warned.

“Aside from remembering, there is also a lesson [to be learned],” Netanyahu said. “In no way should we be deterred by the ongoing struggle against the radical murderers. We need to stand strong against them, in strength, with determination, to stand up against those who cause terrorism, those who commit it and those who spread it. Global terrorism has two main addresses: the terrorism of the radical Shi’ite Islam led by Iran and the terrorism of the radical Sunni Islam, which was initially led by al-Qaeda and now led by ISIS.”

“We are determined to fight the terrorism of Iran, we are determined to prevent it [Iran] from establishing [itself] near our border and we are determined [to fight] and are also fighting the second source that spreads global terrorism in the world- ISIS,” he continued. “We are helping all the countries that are fighting it and indeed many have joined this war and there have been accomplishments. But there is a problem- it turns out that as this fight against ISIS knows success, a problem no less serious [than the ISIS problem] is forming: ISIS leaves, Iran enters.”

“Buenos Aires, New York, Jerusalem, Paris, Barcelona, Brussels- no state is immune to the terrorism of radical Islam,” Netanyahu added. “Because the threat is shared, the solution must also be shared.” The Israeli prime minister added: “We all need to stand up against it together without fear, without hesitation. I believe that if we act in this manner, the victory of the civilized people will be assured over the representatives of barbarism.”

“As a son in a bereaved family, I’m telling you: we’re brothers,” continued Netanyahu. “Your pain is my pain and I know that these wounds never heal. The scars remain but we have the ability to support one another.”
