Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that the world has not really learned and internalized the lessons of the Holocaust. "Ask the Cambodians, ask the Rwandans, ask the Sudanese," he said. adding that there is an ongoing massacre occurring in Syria by the Assad regime against protesters.

Speaking at the Knesset just days before International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27), Netanyahu reasoned that the Jewish people must not put their fate in the hands of the international community.

Speaking immediately after Netanyahu, opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) said that Israel is proud of the Holocaust survivors. "We are a strong country," she said. "The Star of David that used to be knitted on the breast of the Jews during the Holocaust is now stuck on the Israeli F-16s that have flown over Auschewitz."
