Even in the days of Hitler the Jewish people were not in such danger as they are today from Iran and Egypt, the preeminent spiritual leader and halachic authority for the haredi Lithuanian community, Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, said this week. "There is a state called Iran and there is an evil man there who wants to kill and obliterate everything," Elyashiv was quoted as saying by the haredi weekly Bakehila. "You know what is happening…on the border with Egypt," added Elyashiv. "There are great dangers, more than there has been ever before. Egypt has arms and is constantly stockpiling more. It is all against the Jewish settlement here."
