Interior Security Minister Avi Dichter said Tuesday that there was no room for comparison between the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the recent war in Lebanon. Dichter, speaking at a memorial service for fallen soldiers of the 1973 conflict at Jerusalem's Mount Herzl military cemetery, said, "The State of Israel has never faced a similar danger - not before the Yom Kippur War and not after. "All those who wish these days to draw a parallel between other wars, including the recent one, to the Yom Kippur War are both wrong and misleading," he said.
