ISIS has claimed responsibility for this week's terror attacks in Brussels. Yet, The Times of Israel's Raphael Ahren reports, PM Netanyahu says that those who perpetrated the Belgian bombings are no different than the Palestinian terrorists daily attacking Israelis:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a direct link Wednesday between the devastating attacks a day earlier in Brussels, for which Islamic State claimed responsibility, and Palestinian terrorism, positing that both phenomena pursue the same goal.

“I already said many times that terrorism is caused not by occupation and despair, but by hope — the hope of the Islamic State terrorists to establish an Islamic caliphate in all of Europe [and] the hope of Palestinian terrorists that they will succeed in establishing a Palestinian state in the entire territory of the State of Israel,” the prime minister said...

“If there is one people who know what they are going through it is the people of Israel, who have been bravely and courageously fighting against terrorist attacks for many years,” he said.

“We’re in a global war against terror. It’s a war of the civilized word versus the sons of darkness. Terrorism strikes everywhere,” he added.

“I think the point of departure in the fight against terrorism is this: Nothing justifies terrorism, absolutely nothing. In Paris, Brussels, San Bernadino, Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. Terror must be condemned equally and it must be fought equally.”

The prime minister continued: “In all of these places, terrorism does not stem from deprivation. It does not come from frustration. It stems from a murderous ideology — the desire to destroy the enemy and to uproot him..."
