Rabat – Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement on Thursday in which he expressed his rejection of Donald Trump’s hate speech against Muslims.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu rejects Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Muslims,” the statement said.
The statement went to add that “The State of Israel respects all religions and strictly guarantees the rights of all its citizens.”
“At the same time, Israel is fighting against militant Islam that targets Muslims, Christians and Jews alike and threatens the entire world.”
This comes as the US presidential hopeful was preparing to meet with the Israeli Minister on December 28 in Israel. However, Trump announced on his Twitter account on Thursday that he has decided to postpone his visit to Israel.
“I have decided to postpone my trip to Israel and to schedule my meeting with @Netanyahu at a later date after I become President of the U.S.,” he said.
The US billionaires’ scathing attacks against Muslims created an uproar worldwide with world leaders, artists, athletes and businessmen condemning his rhetoric.
On Tuesday, democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, described Trump’s call to ban Muslims from entering the United States as “ugly, distasteful and a dangerous idea.”
“This is both a shameless and dangerous idea at a time when American should be doing everything we can to lead the fight to defeat ISIS and other radical jihadists” Clinton said in rally on Tuesday.
In response to Trump’s call to stop Muslims from entering the US, a petition was launched in the United Kingdom to barre the real-estate mogul from entering the country. The petition, which was posted on the UK’s parliament on Tuesday, has already hit 400,000 names.
The petition will be automatically considered by the parliament, since it has garnered more than 100,000 signatures.
