“‘Never again’ pledges” meaningless if not acted on, Netanyahu says.
Israel reserves the right to defend itself against a nuclear Iran, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday night as he compared its regime with that of the Nazis in his address at the annual state Holocaust commemoration at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
“Even if we are forced to stand alone against Iran, we will not fear. In every circumstance we will preserve our right and our ability to defend ourselves,” Netanyahu said.
He spoke just weeks after six world powers – the US, Great Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany – reached a framework agreement with Iran to curb its nuclear program.
Netanyahu used the platform at Yad Vashem to compare that agreement with the concessions the Western world made to the Nazis in the 1930s, before the outbreak of World War II.
