Good day.

This morning, the State of Israel struck at the head of the Palestinian terrorist murderers. The essence of this man’s ideology was one – the murder and killing any Jews, and the destruction of the State of Israel. I presume you are all aware of the blood-soaked past and hatred of this arch-murderer, who was among the worst of Israel’s enemies.

I take this opportunity to thank the security system and all its arms for the action this morning.

I wish to clarify: the war against terror has not ended, and will continue daily, everywhere. This is a difficult campaign in which all nations of the free world understand that they must play a part. It is the natural right of the Jewish people, as any other nation which wishes to exist, to pursue those who rise to destroy it.
