JERUSALEM, Apr 16 : Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seized on Israel's annual remembrance of the Holocaust on Wednesday to compare arch-foe Iran to Hitler's Germany.
"As the Nazis sought to stamp out civilisation and to set the master race to rule across the earth... while wiping out the Jewish people, so does Iran seek to control the region, spread outwards and destroy the Jewish state," he said.
Speaking at Jerusalem's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, as Israel began marking the liberation of the Nazi death camps 70 years ago, he used the occasion to keep us his constant pressure against the emerging nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers. World powers agreed with Iran this month on the framework of a deal to rein in its nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions.
Warning against appeasing "tyrannical regimes," he questioned whether the lessons of World War II had been fully absorbed. ?AFP
