The terror which Israel had to face 30-40 years ago, India, the US and Europe are confronted with now, Israel's Mumbai consul general David Akov said here Saturday.

There is also a need for the "cultured" world to fight collectively against "barbarism" epitomized by journalist James Foley's beheading, Akov told IANS on the sidelines of a two-day Israeli film festival which got underway here Saturday.

"I think what is happening today, is that things we knew specifically from our experience 30-40 years ago, most of the cultured world is seeing today.

"That there are terrorists and the terrorists are trying to hit democracies, This is what is happening in Israel, in India, it's happening in Europe, its happening in the US," Akov said.

"It's happening wherever you have more open societies, more democratic societies that you have terrorist organisations which are trying to attack, manipulate or misuse the openness of society," he said.

"It just shows that the cultured world should get together and fight against this barbarism," he said referring to the beheading of journalist James Foley allegedly by the Islamic State militants.
