“The remarks are fundamentally incorrect. They should not have been made at any time much less now. They do injustice to Israeli society and cause a belittling of the Holocaust. The Deputy Chief-of-Staff is an outstanding officer, but his remarks on this issue were utterly mistaken and unacceptable to me,” Netanyahu told cabinet ministers during a meeting on Sunday.
General Yair Golan came under fire last week for making an ‘antisemite’ statement during a speech he delivered at a military ceremony to begin the country’s Holocaust rememberance festival at a kibbutz in central Israel near Netanya.
“If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance, it’s the recognition of the horrifying processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then – 70, 80 and 90 years ago – and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016. There is nothing easier than hating the other. There is nothing easier than raising fears and sowing terror. There is nothing easier than becoming callous, morally corrupt and hypocritical,” Golan said.
Golan was referring to the Netanyahu government and army’s reaction to the so-called Knife Attacks carried on “innocent Jewish settlers” by the Palestinian youth.
On Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Gen. Moshe Ya’alon defended Golan, saying his words were ‘distorted”. Ya’alon is known for his ‘Iranophobia’. In January 2016, he told a conference held by the Institute of National Security Studies in Tel Aviv that the Islamic Republic poses a much greater threat to Israel than ISIS. “In Syria, if the choice is between Iran and the Islamic State, I choose the Islamic State. They don’t have the capabilities that Iran has,” he said. I bet the Zionist coward knows that ISIS works for Israel.
It’s very touchy for the pro-Israel goons to accept the fact that their Jewish ancestors did collaborate with Hitler and Nazis. On August 7, 1933, Haavara Agreement (moving house in Hebrew) was signed between the world Jewish Agency and Adolf Hitler.
