Most Israelis believe that today there is no danger of genocidal attack on the Jewish people such as the one perpetrated by the German Nazi regime during the 1940s, a Knesset Channel poll revealed on Wednesday.

The poll - which was published on the eve of the nationwide Remembrance Day for the Holocaust - showed that 60 percent of respondents believed there is no danger of a new Holocaust, while 36% believed the danger is still pertinent.

The questionnaire also asked respondent to relate to Israel's ambiguous nuclear arsenal, and the likelihood of a nuclear bomb to deter the threat of a genocide against Jews.

Of those questioned, 64% said they believed a nuclear bomb in Israeli hands could prevent a new Holocaust, while 29% said a nuclear weapon could not deter that threat.
