Shalom: Anti-Semitism Was and Remains Evil


The Massuah Institute for the Study of the Holocaust held on Friday a ceremony marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Speaking during the ceremony, Minister Silvan Shalom (Likud) said, "Anti-Semitism was and remains evil. It seems that many members of the free world have realized that this hatred, which is entirely made up of evil and malice, is no longer the problem of the Jewish people or of the State of Israel alone."

British ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, also spoke during the ceremony and said, "Here, in Israel, where the stories of so many families are associated with the horrors of the Holocaust, the least we can do is understand. Understand that when people talk about defense, justice and freedom - these needs stem from the deepest places. That's why we're here."
