Islamic State sours the sweetness of diplomats’ Rosh Hashana toast

Scores of foreign and Israeli diplomats gathered at the President’s Residence on Monday for the traditional Rosh Hashana toast. Although the event in itself was one of joy and celebration, Dean of the Diplomatic Corps and Ambassador of Cameroon Henri Etoundi Essomba injected a somber note when he said that the moment of celebration could not erase the reality that the Jewish year 5775 that was just ending, had been a challenging one for the entire world in matters of security, and economic, humanitarian and ecological crises.

The Islamic State continues to spread its ideology as its modus operandi all over the world, said Essomba. Originally considered an epiphenomenon, the Islamic State has proved to be a structured and well organized movement, Essomba noted, adding that its strategy is based on the elimination of all those who resist its totalitarian ideology.
