Netanyahu links terror attacks to Islamic extremism, UN envoy to ‘Palestinian resentment’

Israel and the UN were at odds Thursday over whether Palestinian terrorism is the product of Islamic extremism or driven by resentment and frustration.

While UN special envoy Nickolay Mladenov, in an address to the Security Council on the Middle East diplomatic process, referred to Palestinian violence and terror – which he roundly condemned – as being “fueled by resentment,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu drew a clear line between the recent Islamic extremist attacks in Istanbul and Brussels, and the attack that killed 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel in her bed in Kiryat Arba.
