Netanyahu, Herzog Offer Condolences to Denmark

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday night sent his condolences to the people of Denmark over the terrorist attacks over the weekend in which two people were killed, including a Jewish security guard outside a synagogue in Copenhagen.

"I would like to note the activities of the authorities in Denmark [against terrorism] and offer my condolences to the Danish people on behalf of the people of Israel," Netanyahu said in a conversation with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

“We share common values and we must fight together against boundless terrorism. Countries that do not fight terrorism today, will face much more difficult terrorism tomorrow,” he added.

Opposition leader MK Yitzhak Herzog spoke with Thorning-Schmidt as well, and expressed his deep condolences for the families of the victims and the entire Danish people.

"Radical Islamic terrorism is carrying out brutal crimes. All Western countries must fight it with all their might, resources and determination," said Herzog.

"We, the leaders of countries, must restore the lost sense of security to our citizens," he continued.

“The terror in Gaza, Paris and Copenhagen is the same terror, and in order to eradicate the roots of hatred we need to urgently establish an international coalition that will handle this struggle as an uncompromising global fight,” said Herzog.
