Olmert: No power in the world can contend with Israel's spirit

"Any who deny the Holocaust wish to deny Israel's right to exist," Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned Wednesday evening during the opening ceremony for Holocaust Remembrance Day. "There is no power in the world that can contend with the spirit of this nation, which emerged from the depths of extermination to heights of the creativity, success… and strength of Israel," the prime minister said.
