Netanyahu: Israel thwarted ‘major’ terror attacks in Europe involving planes

Israeli intelligence has thwarted mass terrorist attacks in Europe that “involve civil aviation,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday, in a possible reference to September 11-type attacks planned against European targets using hijacked aircraft.

Netanyahu, speaking in Jerusalem to ambassadors of NATO countries, said that the world is threatened by radical Sunni groups, initially led by al-Qaeda, but now by Islamic State, and radical Shi’ites led by Iran.

    OT: President Trump invites the media into a meeting with the democrats to discuss daca/amnesty. This is brilliant. The guy’s a genius.

    And Europe hates him for it.

      They hate him for something.

        They hate him for being a Jew who won’t take any crap from them.

      Yes and out of “gratitude” European government continue to allow their nations to become increasingly hostile towards Jews to the point were many have to leave to Israel out of fear for their safety rather than merely out of choice.

  • Spatchcocked

    Unbelievably Israel has its own lefty progressive useful idiots trying to hamstring sound realistic policy.
    Democracy is sure messy.

    Was it Smart Bibi?
    I think you did the right but not the smartest thing, some grilled Europeans
    and devestated inner city’s would have jump Europe back in to reality, no?

      It’s time for Bibi to deport all the Fatah/PLO members to France, Belgium and Germany. Let’s see how they like them.

    And how will Europe show it’s appreciation? They still hate, and always will hate, Israel and Jews. Remarkable that Israel saved countless European lives, but Europe still and always will continue to side with the very people who would have killed many Europeans.

      Perhaps they’re afraid that once it is obvious that Europe is unrecoverable non-Muslim Europeans will start streaming into the only country that knows how to deal with Muslim extremism and demand asylum.

      • caliroxanne

        It has nothing to do with fear, it’s the ideology shared by the Europeans and the Muslims.

        • Watchman

          Not every European is anti-Semitic, just like not every Muslim is a rapist. It’s the 99% that is giving the 1% the bad name. /sarc

  • Israel saved Europe.

    You’re welcome, Europe.
