Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day

[Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - Anti-Semitism is an age-old historic phenomenon. However, if anyone thought that after the horrors of the Holocaust, this malignant phenomenon will vanish from the world, today it is clear that they were, unfortunately, mistaken. In our generation, only a few dozen years after the Holocaust, new forces arise, clearly and openly stating their intention to wipe the Jewish state off the face of the earth. And the response of the civilized world? Instead of a firm denunciation - at best, we hear a faint voice. While we are marking the events of the Holocaust here at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, there are those who chose to participate in a spectacle of hatred of Israel, conducted at this very hour in the heart of Europe. We express our appreciation to those important countries which chose to boycott this demonstration of hatred - including the United States, Canada, Germany, Italy, Holland, Poland, Australia and New Zealand, as well as representatives who left the hall during the hateful words of the Iranian president. We will not allow Holocaust deniers to carry out another Jewish Holocaust.
