JERUSALEM- Benjamin Netanyahu Prime Minister of Israel said in a speech at the Holocaust commemorations on Wednesday to call for action against Syria following a suspected poison gas attack.
The American government has threatened to use air strikes against the Syrian government over its alleged use of chemical weapons, where the Russian government an ally to the Syrian government has denied the attack.
Netanyahu said, “The events of the last days teach that standing up to evil and aggression is a mission that is incumbent upon every generation,”
“We saw the Syrian children who were slaughtered with chemical weapons. Our hearts were rent by the horrific sights.”
Nethanyahu invoked lessons from World War two and the tragedy of the Holocaust to call for actions against Iran and criticizing the nuclear deal, he said, “The lack of willingness among the powers of the West to stand firm in the face of the tyrannical regime, their lack of willingness to pay the price of stopping aggression at an early stage, led to humanity paying a much greater price later on.”
