I'm going to say something now that some of you will not believe. But I'm going to say it anyway because it's true.

I, the Prime Minister of Israel, care more about Palestinians than their own leaders do.
Israel cares more about Palestinians than their own leaders do.

That sounds incredible, right?

But consider the following:
A few days ago, the world learned that Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza, stole millions of dollars from humanitarian organizations like World Vision and the United Nations.

Innocent and impoverished Palestinians were denied vital aid supplied from nations around the world.
Hamas used this stolen money to build a war machine to murder Jews.

I want you to think about that. Let that sink in.

Hamas stole critical support for Palestinian children so that they could kill our children.

So I ask you—who cares more about Palestinians?

Israel, that facilitates the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza, every single day?
Or Hamas, that robs Palestinian children of that very same aid?

Israel, that treats wounded Palestinians from Gaza in its hospitals?
Or Hamas that prevents injured Palestinians from getting help?

Imagine, just imagine, where we might all be if Palestinian leaders cared as much about helping their own people as they did about hurting our people. The Palestinian people deserve better.

And today, I express my deepest sympathy with innocent Palestinians and those well-meaning nations who generously donated money to help them.

The cynicism and cruelty of Hamas is hurting all of us.
It's hurting peace.

Dear Arab citizens of Israel, Muwatinuna al arab al aezaa,
Before my election, I said Arabs voters were going to the polls in droves.
I was referring to a specific political party but many people were understandably offended. I apologized for how my comment was misunderstood.
But today I want to go further.
Today I am asking Arab citizens in Israel to take part in our society—in droves. Work in droves, study in droves, thrive in droves.
Israel is strong because of our diversity and pluralism—not in spite of it.
Over 20% of Israel's citizens are Arabs. And you have achieved incredible heights: Supreme Court justices, members of parliament, renowned authors, entrepreneurs, high tech business-owners, doctors, pharmacists.
I am proud of the role Arabs play in Israel's success.
I want you to play an even greater role in it.
Now, respecting minorities isn't just the right thing to do—it's critical to our progress.
But talking about equality of opportunity – that's not enough.
Action is what matters.
My government recently passed a resolution to invest massive resources in Arab communities.
Arab communities are receiving unprecedented support for public infrastructure, for transportation, for employment, for welfare, for so many other things.
And the reason for this is simple. Because your future is our future.
Yet significant gaps remain.
I will never forget the conversation I had in a Knesset committee with a young Muslim woman. Her husband and sons were gunned down in an Arab town. She was shaking. She begged me, she said, "Prime Minister, please increase law and order in the community where I live."
And this is exactly what we're doing.
Yesterday, the government approved legislation that would significantly strengthen public safety for Arab towns and villages. They're yearning to be free from a life of crime and violence.
My vision is that young Arab boys and girls grow up knowing they can achieve anything in Israel as valued and equal citizens in our democracy.
Today I ask you all to join me in this effort.
Now, each of us has a role to play.
Jews and Arabs should reach out to each other, get to know each other's families.
Listen to each other.
Jews and Arabs should treat one another with the same dignity and respect you'd want for your own family.
Our land is too small, it's too precious to fill it with discord and hate.
Let us work together, Arabs and Jews alike, to reach ever higher in the noble pursuit of equality and dignity for all.
This is my vision and I'm sure it's yours too.

President Abbas,
Since over the past several years, you refused to meet me and sit down and negotiate peace, I hope you’ll hear this message.

First, your advisor, Sultan Abu al Einein recently called to slit the throat of every Israeli.

Three days later, a Palestinian terrorist turned these words into action when he slit the throat of a 13-year-old beautiful girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, as she slept.

She was a little, innocent girl.
She didn't deserve this.

I ask that you fire this advisor because advocating genocide is not consistent with peace.

Second, your party recently praised a terrorist on Facebook who murdered 24 civilians, innocent Israelis in cold blood.

I ask that you to pick up the phone and instruct your party's social media manager to stop praising mass murderers.
Impressionable children read these posts.

They should be taught harmony, not hate.
Such words seriously harm the chances of peace.

Third, next week the Palestinian Authority will dedicate a monument to Abu Sukar. Abu Sukar murdered 15 people by detonating a refrigerator filled with explosives on a busy Jerusalem street.

Rather than dedicate a statue to a mass-murderer, I ask that you consider honoring a champion of co-existence.

This will help educate future generations to love peace over war, compassion over violence.
It will also help convince Israelis that they have a true partner for peace.

Fourth, the PLO currently pays a monthly salary to anyone who murders Jews.

This money provides direct incentive to commit terror.
I ask that you stop paying murderers and instead use this money to fund co-existence education, teach tolerance not terror.

Fifth, every Israeli and Palestinian child deserves a life of hope, of tranquility and opportunity.

I will continue to work tirelessly for peace.
It’s time that you join this effort.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State John Kerry, in Rome, issued the following statements before their meeting:

US Secretary of State John Kerry:

"Good morning, everybody. I'm delighted to welcome the Prime Minister of Israel, my friend Bibi Netanyahu, to the American residence here in Rome, which he is very familiar with. We spent quite a few hours here in the garden and in this room and elsewhere talking.

We had a very long meeting last night in which we discussed many different issues, but we focused significantly on the challenge of beating back terrorism and beating back terrorism specifically with respect to Israel's challenge in the Sinai, in the Golan Heights, where ISIL is now visible, positioned in places, and also the challenge of violence stemming from extremism in Gaza and the West Bank.

We had a very productive conversation about that, and we talked at some length about ways in which we might be able to try to work and move things in a more positive direction. We also talked about the progress being made, the significant progress being made by the Prime Minister in his discussions with Turkey, and we obviously have been encouraging a movement towards the resolution of the differences between Turkey and Israel.

And finally, we did talk at some length about the economic challenge, and particularly some of the countries in the region which are witnessing a transformational kind of set of hurdles – Egypt particularly, with respect to its economic transformation, which has to come at the same time as it is fighting back against terrorism, and we discussed how we can work together with other countries in the region in order to deal with those issues.

And of course, finally we talked about Brexit – impossible not to – and how that might or might not affect all economies, and I think we came to the conclusion that, managed properly, with leadership and effort by all of the parties to calm the waters and move in a steady way, that we can get through this – also another transformation, transition, and do so hopefully minimizing any kind of collateral negative effect.

Most importantly, Israel is, as everybody knows and we reiterate again and again, a critical ally and friend of the United States, and Israel continues to be facing significant challenges. We talked about those, and the ways in which, hopefully, with good effort by all leaders, we can try to change the direction and find a positive way to affect the lives of everybody – Israelis, Palestinians, people in the neighboring countries – and move towards a more stable and peaceful future."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:

"Thank you, John, for dinner and breakfast, and for our conversations. I welcome the opportunity to have the, I would say, probing talks on the region, on the challenges and on the opportunities with my good friend John Kerry. There are serious talks by two committed allies, Israel and the United States.

We discussed everything that the Secretary spoke about – the challenges in the region from ISIL, east, west, south. We discussed not only American-Israeli security cooperation, but security cooperation in a larger regional context. We discussed how we can advance the process with the Palestinians, difficult though it may be. We discussed regional implications for stabilizing the Middle East, moving into a place where it will be less convulsive. And we discussed some bilateral issues between us. This was a far-ranging discussion that I think was meant to bring us both in a common direction for common purposes, and I find it very valuable, so thank you.

I updated Secretary Kerry about our agreement with Turkey, which we will show at noon. I think it's an important step here to normalize relations on one side. It has also immense implications for the Israeli economy, and I use that word advisedly – immense implications for the Israeli economy and I mean positive immense implications.

A lot of other things were discussed and will be discussed today, but I remember a meeting that I had with Secretary Kerry quite some time ago when we discussed it, and with Vice President Biden, whom I called yesterday, who met me a couple years ago in Davos. Rod is an oil expert, he's a gas expert, and he said, "This will create the foundations, part of the foundations, of the future of your economy." That has been uppermost in my mind, and I'll say more about that today at lunch.

US Secretary of State John Kerry: Because I wanted, I wanted the Prime Minister to say something about it and it shouldn't have come from me. But first of all, we welcome, the United States welcomes this step. It is something we have talked about for several years, as the Prime Minister has said. I'm proud to say that the Vice President's oil expert is the State Department's oil expert. Amos Hochstein did a great job on this too, and the Vice President's been pushing this all along. So, we are obviously pleased in the Administration. This is a step we wanted to see happen. I think when President Obama came to Israel, there was a famous phone call on the tarmac of the airport to Turkey, as we tried to move things forward. So this is coming full circle, and Mr. Prime Minister, I congratulate you. I know your team has been working long and hard at this. I think it's a positive step, one of, I hope, the beginning of others. Thank you. Appreciate it."

warmongers, murderers and liars. Everyone of you are mentally ill for thinking that this is the way forward. Insanity is defined as doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. Greedy cowards.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting this morning:
"We are all shocked at the horrific massacre in Orlando. On behalf of the government and people of Israel, I would like to again express our condolences to the American people and the families at this especially difficult and tragic hour. This terror threatens the entire world and it is necessary – first of all – that the enlightened countries urgently unite to fight it. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the American people.

Today the Cabinet will be briefed on the recommendations of the Shtrum committee on the establishment of new banks. Competition in the banking sector will ease the credit situation for small and medium business. And separation between the major banks and credit card companies is the start of a comprehensive reform that will be good for all Israelis."

Mir Seddique told news sources his son was not driven by religious ideology, but instead, he grew irate after witnessing two men kissing in Miami a few months before the shooting took place.

Understanding the severity of the situation, Seddique offered his apologies to all of the victims. “We’re apologizing for the whole incident,” he wrote in an official statement to NBC. “We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country. This had nothing to do with religion.”

A homophobic did this. Cause is an insecurity of manliness and low self esteem. Religious intolerance is a most likely source cause. Children no matter what age expout what they hear or what others are silent about (whats allowed to be spoken freely of hate(others)) and not confronted with the truths of their own insecurities. Is there an achievable safety against irrational thought. For me when any hatred is allowed to be spoke, those present should be ashamed of the results their silence manufactures to reality. Parenting is a tough job but all of us can improve prejudices. Understanding and education reduced prejudices. But we should all be able to especially unite in the knowing of sickness and evil when it comes to knowing who the people are that promote the self entitlement of taking life and those who support such uncivilized and shameful acts. God Bless Israel . Amen.

I've just watched a video that shook me to the core of my being. In just a few seconds, it shows why our conflict persists.
So here is a short snippet:
"Shoot him! Shoot him! Here he is. Go, go. Shoot him!"
A Palestinian father holds up his 4-year-old son. He pleads with Israeli border police to kill his own child. He shouts, "Shoot this little boy!" His boy.
He pushes his young son forward toward the soldiers and screams, "Kill him! Shoot him!"
The boy pauses. He is scared. Any child would be.
He turns back, looking at his father for guidance.
With his shirt tightly tucked into his bright red shorts, the boy ambles forward towards the soldiers. One of them extends his hand in friendship. The boy gives him a high-five.
It's hard to make a four-year-old hate.
Imagine your own child at that age. Think of his smile. Imagine her laugh. Picture the unrestrained joy and innocence that only a child possesses.
Encouraging someone to murder a child – let alone your own child – is probably the most inhumane thing a person can do.
What did this child do to deserve this? The answer is: nothing. He is innocent.
He should be in a playground. He should be in the sun, laughing with other children.
Sadly, this father's crime is not an isolated example. In Gaza, Hamas runs summer camps that teach children to value death over life – suicide kindergarten camps.
The Palestinian Ministry of Education in Ramallah recently organized an event for students to honor terrorists who murdered three civilians.
Two weeks ago, the Palestinian Authority's official newspaper praised teenage terrorists and wrote that "death as a martyr is the path to excellence and greatness." That's a direct quote.
Palestinian and Israeli children deserve better. They deserve to live. They deserve to live in peace.
Children are not cannon fodder. They are the most precious things in the world. They're the most precious things we have.
I'm sure Palestinian parents, many of them, are as outraged as I am at this video.
And today I appeal to every father and mother around the world. I ask you to join me in calling for an end to this abuse of children.
The Palestinian leadership must stop encouraging children to kill. They must stop encouraging Palestinian parents to call for the death of their own children.
It's horrendous!
Peace begins with respect. If parents don't respect their own children's lives, how will they respect the lives of their neighbors?
We must love all children. They should never be pushed to violence or hate.
Join me in educating all children for peace.

The Palestinian Authority has recently built a monument to honor a Palestinian terrorist, Abu Sukkar, who perpetrated a terror attack in Jerusalem in July 1975, in which 15 people were murdered.

MFA Director General Dr. Dore Gold, who witnessed the deadly attack, recalls it and calls upon the Palestinians to promote a culture of peace, rather than a culture of death. As a first step - this monument, honoring a mass-murderer must be torn down.

the ones that honour "a culture of death" are "daesh" the lost, those who refuse to think for themselves , a form of walking dead, believing with others justifying their own shortcoming thru hatred. Prosperity is hard work, so is forgiveness, a subject which as a way of actual living is unknown to myself and many others. Forgiveness and moving forward starts in acknowledging ones direction may need re-course, or a direction of ones own making. Following those who hate, results in a shortness of life's fullness being enjoyed by family and friends. Horrible existence for those perpetuating feudal rights while dishonouring those who wish and do live non harming lives to others. Sad to see hate have any fuel....my condolences to those who suffer from having to face actual ignorance. Peace be with you . and
God Bless Israel.

In Orlando, a terrorist walks into a nightclub and murders nearly 50 human beings. Sons and daughters, brothers and sisters cut down in cold blood.

They did nothing wrong. They were dancing with friends, they were enjoying music with loved ones.

Why did the terrorist murder them?
Because he was driven by a fanatical hatred.

He targeted the LGBT community because he believed they were evil.

Now, the murderer wasn't alone.

Regimes and terrorist organizations around the world ruthlessly persecute the LGBT community.

In Syria, ISIS throws gays off rooftops.
In Iran, the regime hangs gays from cranes.

Too many people have remained silent in the face of this awful persecution.

This week's shooting wasn't merely an attack on the LGBT community. It was an attack on all of us, on our common values of freedom and diversity and choice.

Radical Islamist terror makes no distinction between shades of infidel.

This week it was gays in Orlando. A few days before that it was Jews in Tel Aviv. Before that it was music fans in Paris; Travelers in Brussels; Yazidis in Iraq; Community workers in San Bernardino; Christians and journalists in Syria.

All of us are targets.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God.

ISIS, by contrast, believes that all people who aren't just like them deserve to die.

We will not be terrified into submission.
We will fight back. And we will triumph.

Today I ask you to reach out to friends in the LGBT community. Comfort them.
Tell them you stand together, we stand together as one. And that you will always remember the victims.

Tell them they will never be alone, that we are all one family deserving of dignity, deserving of life.

I have no doubt that those who seek to spread hate and fear will be defeated.

Working together we will defeat them even faster.

We need to stand united, resolute in the belief that all people regardless of their sexual orientation, regardless of their race, regardless of their ethnicity, all people deserve respect, deserve dignity.

"Stand together with the LGBT community as one?" Oneness as in "family" and perfect unity? How do you reconcile that statement to God's law at Leviticus 18:22?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
"On behalf of the people and government of Israel, I extend our deepest condolences to the American people following last night’s horrific attack on the LGBT community in Orlando.
Israel stands shoulder to shoulder with the United States at this moment of tragic loss.
We send our heartfelt sympathies to the families of the victims and wish a full and speedy recovery to the wounded."
