must stop murderous hatred in its tracks, stop it right from the
beginning. All countries in the world must learn this lesson,”
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said during a speech at
Auschwitz-Birkenau in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance
Day on Wednesday afternoon.
The prime minister stated that the Jews had become sensitive to the need for self-defense after they had lost a third of their
people in what he termed "blood-soaked Europe."
"We learned that the only guarantee for
the protection of our people is the State of Israel and its army, the
IDF,” he declared, warning that never again would the existence of
Israel and the Jewish people be threatened.
