Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Netanyahu tells special Knesset session ‘world condemns Gilo construction, but not mufti’s call to kill Jews.’ Speaker: We can’t deny tragedies of other nations
“Seventy years have passed since the Holocaust, and many around the world still remain silent in the face of Iran’s threats to wipe Israel off the map, and many stay silent despite Hezbollah’s call for the destruction of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday during a special Knesset session ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which will be marked this week.
“International Holocaust Remembrance Day is the day on which the world needs to stand behind the words ‘no more.’ It’s not a slogan, but has a deep meaning,” he said. “It is the day on which the world must unite to make certain weapons of mass destruction do not fall into the hands of dark regimes, headed by the ayatollahs’ regime in Iran.”
Netanyahu added: “Have we learned the lessons of the Holocaust? Are we treating these threats of destruction seriously? Or perhaps, like many generations before us we do not want to see the scope of the danger that is facing us. The Iranian regime is openly calling for the destruction of Israel, but many around the world remain silent. We mustn’t bury our head in the sand. The Iranian regime is planning the annihilation of Israel and is working towards Israel’s destruction – its agents (Hezbollah) fired over 12,000 missiles towards Israel’s cities. They are not concealing their intent to kill as many (Israelis) as possible. Read more.
