JERUSALEM – Israel's prime minister has called on the international community to band together against enemies calling for the destruction of the Jewish state, in comment direct towards Iran.
Benjamin Netanyahu spoke Monday at a ceremony at Israel's National Holocaust Memorial where the blueprints of the notorious Auschwitz death camp were unveiled.
Netanyahu said the lesson of the Holocaust is to "stop bad things when they are small."
"There is new Jew-hatred in our midst. There are new calls for the extermination of the Jewish state," Netanyahu said.
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly questioned the Holocaust and once called for Israel to be "wiped off the map." Israel also fears Iran is developing nuclear weapons.
