Taking a cue from his predecessor, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett uses Holocaust Remembrance Day to speak out against Iran.
“When we hear the Iranian regime’s daily calls to annihilate the State of Israel, as we speak they continue talking about murdering and destroying the State of Israel, the Jewish state, and when we see their rapid progression towards nuclear weapons, indifference is silent acceptance,” he says in a video address to diplomats. “A country who talks about annihilating the Jewish state should not be a legitimate partner for anything.”
“Those who continue to try to attack Jews, to murder Jews, must know the Jew is no longer a punching bag. We swing back and we swing back hard,” he says.
