If an Enemy Says He Seeks to Destroy Us, Believe Him

(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Amb. Ron Prosor - Israeli UN Ambassador Ron Prosor told the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II: For Israel and the Jewish people, World War II is synonymous with the Holocaust. Families were torn apart, vibrant communities destroyed, and one third of the Jewish people - including one million children - were murdered. We are still haunted by the devastation. The responsibility falls to us to ensure that the lessons of history are passed to future generations. Freedom is once again under attack. The radical Islamists marching across the Middle East and North Africa are every bit as determined and dangerous as the Nazi forces that marched across Europe. The writing is on the wall. Former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin once said, "If an enemy...says he seeks to destroy us, believe him. Don't doubt him for a moment." History has taught us that Jewish lives can never be entrusted to another people or another nation. We must always be able to defend ourselves by ourselves.
