While two of the elements that made the Holocaust possible still exist – deep-seated hatred for Jews and world apathy in the face of horrible crimes – the third element, Jewish weakness, is no longer, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday threatened to destroy those who call for the destruction of Israel, in a speech to mark the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day.
“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalm 121:4 (KJV)
“Iran and the Islamic state want to destroy us, and a hatred for Jews is being directed towards the Jewish state today,” he said at a ceremony in Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem memorial.
“Those who threaten to destroy us risk being destroyed themselves,” Netanyahu warned. “From being defenseless people, we have become a state with a defensive capacity that is among the strongest in the world,” he said.
Holocaust Remembrance Day Ceremony from Yad Vashem 2017:
PM Netanyahu’s remarks begin at the 31:31 mark. The central state ceremony marking the start of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day in Israel was held at Yad Vashem on Sunday night, April 23rd. The ceremony was held in the presence of the President of the State of Israel and the Prime Minister, dignitaries, survivors, children of survivors and their families, together with the general public.
Six Holocaust survivors lit torches in memory of the six million Jews killed by the Nazis during the 1939-1945 World War II.
Israel will also come to a standstill for two minutes at 10 am local time (0700 GMT) on Thursday as sirens wail in remembrance of the Jewish victims of Nazism.
Radio stations and television channels on Sunday were broadcasting programmes about the genocide.
I pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and Blessings upon all Israel and the Jewish people for they are the root and I’m a grafted in branch. Hallelujah!
