Netanyahu rips 'limp' response to Iran

At the Holocaust Day opening ceremony on Sunday night, Prime Minister Netanyahu slammed what he called the World's 'limp' reaction to Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu complained bitterly about international reaction to what he called Iran's drive toward nuclear bombs and its intention to destroy Israel, but he did not hint at a possible Israeli response.

''We encounter in the best case a limp reaction, and even that is fading,'' Netanyahu said Sunday. ''We do not hear the necessary rejection, no harsh denunciation, no outcry.''

Netanyahu spoke at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel's official Holocaust memorial authority, before hundreds of Holocaust survivors and their families, Israeli leaders, diplomats and others. A military honor guard stood at one side of the podium and a girls' choir on the other.

''If we have learned anything from the Holocaust,'' Netanyahu said, ''it is that we must not be silent or be deterred in the face of evil.''
It's a shame that Netanyahu didn't make that accusation to Obama directly. While one has little expectation of Russia or China or the Europeans stepping in to do the right thing, we Jews have come to expect better from the United States. Sadly, little has apparently changed since the Roosevelt administration slammed the doors to immigration and refused to bomb the railroad tracks leading to Auschwitz.

Hope and same anyone?

The fact that Netanyahu's speech is getting exactly zero traction in the press shows how right he is and how alone we Jews are.
All we can hope for is that Israel has enough time to develop the weapons it needs in quality and quantity so that it can take care of Iran by itself without runnig the risk of being left unarmed and exposed after that.
Israel is racing against the clock.

Exactly. Netanyahu should stop complaining and get moving since like in the 1930s, no one is going to come to the Jews' rescue. Fairly or not -- Iran is viewed as the Jews' problem... which Israel must solve itself.
