US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calls to "act against anti-Semitism" at a keynote speech held at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum on Tuesday.

Clinton reaffirmed her support for Israel and the Jewish people at the Holocaust Museum, stating: "When heads of states and religious leaders deny the Holocaust, we must not let their lies go unanswered...we must respond when criticism of Israeli government policy crosses over to anti-Semitism."

In spite of calling for the US to "act before the match is struck", she reaffirmed a strategy of prevention that is "not code for military action, rather, a focus on diplomacy, humanitarian assistance, law enforcement and sanctions" to achieve results.

Clinton referenced past genocides and war crimes in Bosnia, Rwanda, Syria and Sudan, saying "never again" to the killings of innocent people.
