Netanyahu Tells European Jews "Stand up to Lies'

Likud party chairman Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu told European Jews in a video conference Thursday that they face a problem of "lies in Europe. "The only defense we have against the lies is the truth. I ask you not only to strengthen and come to Israel but those of you who are living where anti-Semitism rages must light a candle of truth and speak up. Nobody will defend the Jews unless they defend themselves," he said.

Opposition leader Netanyahu, speaking shortly before the Likud launched its new Anglo division, added that former Lubavitcher Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson told him once that the United Nations was a "house of lies" and that the candle of truth must be lit against it.
