Netanyahu: Steven was Murdered Because He Symbolized the West


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday sent his condolences to the family of journalist Steve Sotloff, who was beheaded by terrorists from the Islamic State.

“Steven was murdered because for the terrorists he was a symbol of the West – the same culture that extremist Islam wants to eradicate,” Netanyahu said, speaking at an event marking the 40th anniversary of the Yamam counter-terrorism police unit.
