On the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu urged the international community to fight anti-Semitism by warning that those who hate Jews and want to destroy Israel will eventually move on to the rest of the world, too.

"There is an evil that can spread and threaten the security of Jews," he said during a ceremony at Yad Vashem on Monday. "We know that this just begins with Jews, and then continues on to the rest of the world."

"There are today new people who hate Jews, with new reasons for [wanting] the destruction of the Jewish state," he continued. "This is our concern."

Speaking about the rise in anti-Semitism - as evidenced by a Jewish Agency report released on Sunday - Netanyahu said that the world must act quickly to stop the continuing spread of lies and baseless denials of truth.

"This is a test for humanity," he said, "and we will see in the coming weeks how the international community stops this evil before it spreads."

The premier was at the memorial museum for the opening of an exhibit which includes the original blueprints of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi death camp.
