'ISIS burns people alive while Iran hangs them', Netanyahu

Israeli PM wants attention shift to danger posed by Iran

04 February, 18:57

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, FEBRUARY 4 - Israeli prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu noted on Wednesday that the Islamic State (ISIS) ''burns people alive while the Islamic Republic of Iran hangs them in the town square'' after the international outcry following a video showing ISIS burning a Jordanian pilot alive.

    In so doing, he distanced himself from the specific nature of the condemnation expressed by other international leaders.

    ''Both,'' he added, continuing in his comparison of the terrorist organization operating in Syria and Iraq to the government in Tehran ''are motivated by an extremist Islam whose cruelty knows no bounds, but the most menacing danger to humanity will be if this extremism is backed by nuclear weapons.'' The reference to nuclear weapons was in relation to Iran's nuclear energy program. Netanyahu then noted that he had sent his condolences to King Abdullah and the Jordanian population. Iran and its Lebanese Shia militia allies Hezbollah are fighting alongside the Bashar Al-Assad regime in Syria against ISIS and anti-Assad militias, but the Netanyahu government considers them the main danger to Israel.
