Education Minister Naftali Bennett late Wednesday called on the deputy chief of staff to "correct" statements made during a Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony in which he drew parallels between Israeli society and Germany just before the rise of the Nazis.

In a brief comment which was posted on his Twitter account, Bennett wrote: "Just before Holocaust denies take these errant words [spoken by Maj.-Gen. Yair Golan] and make them part of their banners; Just before our soldiers are compared to Nazis, God forbid, with legitimacy [from the deputy chief of staff]; the deputy chief of staff erred. He should immediately correct [his remarks]."
