Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu met with Prime Minster of the UK, David Cameron on Thursday.
Arriving in Downing Street, Mr Netanyahu said: “The Middle East is disintegrating under the twin forces of militant Islam – militant Sunnis led by ISIS and militant Shiites led by Iran.
“I believe that we can co-operate in practical ways to roll back the tide of militant Islam both in the Middle East and in Africa.”
The Israeli premier also said about peace, “I want to say here in 10 Downing Street… I am ready to resume direct negotiations with the Palestinians with no conditions whatsoever to entering negotiations, and I am willing to do so immediately”.
The third area Netanyahu wanted to discuss with Prime Minister Cameron was the area of technology and innovation, which Britain and Israel are both leaders in. Netanyahu believes that if we pool our resources together we can create a better future for the world.
Mr Cameron praised the “close relationship between Britain and Israel” and the “growing economic and commercial ties” between the countries. He also said the UK “remains staunch in its defence of Israel’s right to exist and to defend itself”.
David Cameron said he wanted to talk about the “enormous important global threats, particularly the threats of Islamist extremism”.
We pray the talks that took place will go much further than mere discussion, and that action and true unity will follow as a result.
God bless the leaders of these two great nations.
