Netanyahu compares Iranian bomb to Auschwitz; Merkel ignores PM and calls for settlement freeze

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said during a joint press conference with Netanyahu that the Iranian nuclear program should not be compared to the Holocaust.

Netanyahu also said that two important lessons were learned from the Holocaust: Jews must be able to defend themselves, and that barbarians must be prevented from acquiring arms.

During his address, Netanyahu attacked Iran's nuclear ambitions, saying that during World War II, the allies knew about what was going on at Auschwitz, yet did nothing to stop the death machine.
