Israeli Ambassador: No country is safe from terrorist threats

Dan Ben-Eliezer, the ambassador of Israel to Bucharest, stated yesterday during an interview with Pro TV’s show ’20 years after’ that no country is safe from terrorist attacks, Mediafax informs. Asked whether he believes that the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority could spill over on Romania’s territory too, the ambassador answered: “I don’t believe this conflict in Gaza has anything to do with Romania. But I want to stress that Iran supports terrorism, terrorism at global level. Iranian terrorism is being put into practice by the Al Quds brigade that is in fact affiliated to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and by Hezbollah, their allies.” He reminded that there were terrorist attacks in various countries, attacks whose targets were Israelis too, but not only Israelis, so that “no country is immune.” In this sense, the ambassador mentioned the attack in Burgas, which targeted Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. “I want to add something. I believe you know that an Islamic fundamentalist made a statement… He is an individual possibly involved in the incident in Burgas, named Bakri, who said that Romania is Islamic land. The statement was condemned by the Romanian government,” Dan Ben-Eliezer stated. He added that in order to accomplish durable peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority there is a need for Hamas to accept three conditions and to come to the table of negotiations, however he expressed scepticism. Asked whether he ever received intelligence on preparations for terrorist attacks on Romanian territory, the Israeli ambassador answered: “You should ask the Romanian authorities handling this sort of thing. They could inform you if need be. But, as I was saying, no country is safe. I feel very safe in Romania. Life is very good and nice here.” The ambassador added that Romania is such a beautiful country that he likes everything, from landscapes and people to food, so much so that he is feeling at home.
