      The Chairman of Bayit Yehudi, Economics Minister Naftali Bennett, compares the chemical weapons attack in Syria Wednesday to scenes from Holocaust.

      “Seventy years ago,” he wrote on his Facebook page, “when children and babies were murdered, the world stayed silent.”

      “Today, too, the world is silent to the terrible massacre in Syria. Television and Internet aren't waking up the world.

      “Piles of dead children cannot be ignored. We will NOT be silent.

      “The Jewish People, and I, as a minister in the government of the Jewish state, have a special duty to speak up, to yell, so the world will hear and stop ignoring what's going on in Syria.

      “That's our moral duty. Please ACT and SHARE this NOW.”

      The post was accompanied by a photo of a crying man carrying a girl, apparently a father carrying his dead child.
