“Anti-Semitism in Israel is not one of our issues,” he told a group of rabbis at the Yeshiva University of the Negev.
“The most dangerous form of anti-Semitism we have seen is anti-Semitic attacks.”
But he added, “There are so many things that can be done to stop the anti-Israel attacks.”
He was referring to anti-Jewish violence, including graffiti attacks, vandalism, and vandalism against Jewish symbols, including Jewish cemeteries and the Dome of the Rock.
The incidents have led to several weeks of anti, anti- and anti-semitic attacks in Israel, including dozens of shootings and attacks on Jewish businesses.
And while the Israeli government has blamed the unrest on a resurgence of the violent, anti, and anti-‘Jewish’ movements in Europe, critics say it has played into the hands of the Islamic State, which has pledged to kill Jews in Israel.
“In a nutshell, there are two narratives, which are the narrative of the Palestinian struggle and the narrative that Israel has to be strong,” Netanyahu said, referring to the Palestinian narrative of a Jewish state.
“And they have no basis in reality.
I can’t imagine that the Jewish people have the same confidence that the Palestinian people have.”
The prime minister said he and his ministers have already begun to work with the U.S. and Europe to prevent attacks on Israel.
He also pledged that his government will “never forget” the death of four U.N. peacekeepers, who were attacked in Gaza by masked gunmen.
“I would say that I will never forget them.
I will always have their memory,” Netanyahu added.
He said that he will never abandon the people of Israel and that “if we are going to be successful, it will be through the whole world.”
And he called on other countries to work to end the violence in the Middle East.
“We cannot have another Holocaust,” he said.
“It is not acceptable.”
He also criticized the United States, saying that it is trying to isolate Israel and put pressure on other Arab nations to join the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, which he says is a form of pressure.
“What is happening in the Arab world is a terrible tragedy,” he added.
