Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu condemned the international double standard on terrorism during a visit on Tuesday to the hospital room of a Jewish woman who burned in a firebombing in Yerushalayim the night before.

“A few days ago I visited the injured brother of the baby Ali who died in a terror attack that targeted Arabs. Today I visited Inbar Azrak, a young woman who was injured from a firebomb by terrorists targeting Jews. Ali’s brother is four years old, Inbar is a young mother of three, ages, two, three and four,” Netanyahu said.

“Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism. Our policy is zero tolerance for terrorism regardless of background. We condemn it and fight it in equal measure,” he added.

“Days ago the international community joined me in condemning the terrorist attack that targeted Arabs and I expect it now to join me in condemning terror targeting Jews.

“I’m still waiting,” Netanyahu concluded.

Azrak, 27, suffered burns to 15 percent of her body when a firebomb was thrown at a vehicle she was traveling in near the Beit Hanina intersection in the capital. She is being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center where she is reported in stable condition.
