Holocaust Remembrance Day has come and, as usual, Nazi Germany is very much taking a back seat for Israel’s political leadership, who are instead using the day as an opportunity to give speeches about Iran.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear in his comments that Holocaust Day might as well be Iran Day this year, insisting that the nation poses an “existential threat” to the Jewish people and that the world is obliged to “stop Iran.”
Netanyahu loudly rejected critics who said it was tacky to try to exploit the deaths of innocent civilians last century to start a war today, insisting that making his speech all about Iran was “the best way to honor” those who were killed.
Netanyahu insisted that making his Holocaust Day speech about some third country Israel might like to attack was the “duty” of his office, but he was hardly alone, as President Shimon Peres likewise made repeated calls to “stand up” to Iran in the name of the Holocaust.
In separate comments Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak touched on the ongoing nuclear talks between the P5+1 and Iran, saying that the fact that the talks were ongoing doesn’t exempt Iran from attack and that Israel would never promise not to attack Iran on any given day.

Isn't it time the world ignored the insane ranting of a parnoid, schizophrenic nut case like Natanyahu?
The sooner the world disregards his irresponsible, lunatic diatribe, the safer the world will be.
If Israel attacks Iran, one must hope that Lieberman, Netanyahu, and Barak are on the direct receiving end of Iranian missiles. They maniacs are a danger to all israeli's and Americans alike. Be done with them!
I think the Palestinians are just angry at t he occupation by Israel. It's hard to be interested in a secondary interest, when your immediate needs/desires are not being met.
Holocaust Day should be about the extermination of Palestinians.
Netanyahu – "…[Iran is an] existential threat” to the Jewish people." That's odd, what does the 28,000 Jews living peacefully in Iran think of this?
My mom has been honored by Yad Vashem for having saved the lives of two Jews during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. I consider the mentioning of Iran during the holocaust memorial an insult to her integrity and courage.
Just think, if he tried to save two Palestinians today, the "Israelis" would either kill her on the spot and blame her for it or throw her in jail for the rest of her natural life.
I just cannot understand how people still listen to the war mongers. It is getting very difficult to follow the game of attacking Iran with all the old attack Iraq still around. The exact same stories being told by the same war mongers. They even brought back John Bolton and no one even knows which country that creep still claims to be loyal to.
The most important thing is we need to get the IDF to do the fighting. If they bleed they might be a little slower in starting wars. Zionist have always liked watching others kill each other than actually get personally involved in the fight.
I thought every day was "Holocaust" day. "Never Forget." No freaking chance of that.
The Chosen People should be forever grateful to the Holocaust(tm). Where ever would they be without it?
A 'holocaust" remembrance day is just fine, but only if it honors ALL the people who have been affected by genocide, worldwide– throughout time, not just the "chosen" ones in the 1940's……..
Israel is a tumour that must be surgically excised.
This is just a thought. It would be in Iran's best intrest if some how they could get Russia or China to announce to the world if Israel attacked Iran with nuclear weapons that they would nuke Israel!Then there is no need for Iran to aquire nuclear weapons .If they should fight a conventional war may the best country win. Iran would be under Russia's and or China's protection! If the USA can do it for Israel why can't Russia or China do it for Iran? …Just a thought.
The holocaust for the world is waiting in Dimona, the site of some Israeli nuclear bombs.
Someone in You Tube said there were never 6 million Jews in Germany or thereabouts. Check it out.
"Someone in You Tube" can be found to say pretty much anything, but that doesn't make it true.
Furthermore, the six million Jews murdered didn't all come from "Germany or thereabouts." They came from all over Europe.
Why would they converge from all over Europe to Germany knowing that a bad fate lurks for them there?
Because when the guy with the machine gun points it at you and tells you to get on the boxcar, you get on the fucking boxcar.
Not as many "converged" on Germany as did on Poland (Auschwitz) that way, though. And plenty of them were just murdered where they happened to be as opposed to being transported to the camps.
Are you worried about an Israeli attack on Iran starting Middle East War III? Then please sign the pledge to boycott Israel if it starts a preemptive war with Iran. By (nonviolently) increasing the cost of starting a war, we can help to prevent it:
Enough , enough , please stop desecrating their memories !!!
