PM Hopes Pope’s Call to End Terror Is Heard


Pope Francis met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the Notre-Dame guest house. During their meeting, the PM said, “We hope that your call for tolerance, coexistence and an end to incitement, anti-Semitism and terror will be heard and accepted by our neighbors.”

The PM added, “If the incitement against the State of Israel and terror would stop, there would be no need for the measures we take such as the security fence, which has saved thousands of lives and thousands of people.”
