Netanyahu, in London, Urges Action to Stop Middle East "Disintegrating"

(BBC News) Arriving in Downing Street at the start of talks in London on Thursday with UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "The Middle East is disintegrating under the twin forces of militant Islam - militant Sunnis led by ISIS [Islamic State] and militant Shiites led by Iran. I believe that we can cooperate in practical ways to roll back the tide of militant Islam both in the Middle East and in Africa." Netanyahu also said he was "ready to resume direct negotiations with the Palestinians with no conditions whatsoever to entering negotiations... immediately." Cameron said the UK "remains staunch" in its "defense of Israel's right to exist and to defend itself." Cameron also praised the "close relationship between Britain and Israel" and their "growing economic and commercial ties."
