"The state of Israel does not exist because of the Holocaust, but because of its strong existence, the Holocaust will never happen again," US President Barack Obama said Friday morning at Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial.

The statement marked a significant corrective to his speech in Cairo in 2009, where he appeared to argue that the legitimacy of the Jewish state stemmed from the Holocaust.

The president said that one could visit the memorial 1,000 times, "and each time one's heart would break."
