Israeli PM ‘No second Holocaust’

ISRAELI Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged yesterday not to allow Holocaust deniers the chance to carry out a second Holocaust against the Jewish people.

He spoke at the ceremony marking Israel’s annual memorial day for the six million Jews killed by Nazis and their collaborators during World War II, but the event fell under the shadow of the UN anti-racism conference in Geneva, perceived in Israel as anti-Semitic.

Speaking at Yad Vashem, Israel’s official Holocaust memorial and study centre, Netanyahu said: “We will not allow the Holocaust deniers to carry out another Holocaust against the Jewish people. This is the supreme duty of the state of Israel. This is my supreme duty as prime minister of Israel.’’
