SHANGHAI-Just days after allegations that Israel attacked Syria, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday morning in China that unlike 70 years ago, today Israel "can defend ourselves."

Netanyahu's comments came during a tour of the historic Jewish quarters in Shanghai where some 18,000 Jews sought refuge during World War II.

The fate of the Jews has changed a great deal since the time the jewish refugees found shelter in this city, Netaynhu said. "70 years ago we could only plead, only beg to be saved," he said. "Today we have a state of our own, an army of our own. We need not beg to be saved, we can defend ourselves."

From the Jewish quarter, Netanyahu was scheduled to meet with the mayor of Shanghai.
