Europe Accused of ‘lack of Guts’

President Chaim Herzog has accused Europe of “lack of guts, lack of decision and lack of leadership” in the fight against international terrorism. His remarks were made in an Israel Radio interview when asked to comment on last week’s attempted bombing of an El Al plane at Madrid airport.

Herzog said that a start had been made at international cooperation against terrorism, but that much more should be done. “It’s a very simple case of lack of guts, lack of decision and lack of leadership in many of the (European) countries,” said the Israeli president.
