Holocaust Memorial Day was observed in Israel today as it has been every year of its existence.
For two minutes, the entire country virtually comes to a halt as you can see from the video I've linked to from a year ago.
I don't think there's anything else like it in the world. Then again there's nothing like The Holocaust.
But that could change.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not mince words when he likened Iran's ambitions to those of Nazi Germany in a speech delivered at Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem:
The Nazis sought to crush civilization and have a master race rule the Earth while destroying the Jewish people. In that same way, Iran seeks to dominate the region and to spread outward from there, with the declared intention of destroying the Jewish state.
