Netanyahu slams Ahmadinejad's speech; hails diplomats who walked out

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that "anti-Semitism is an old historical phenomenon, but if anyone thought that it would disappear after the atrocities of the Holocaust, today has proven them wrong."


Speaking at the Yad Vashem service marking Holocaust Remembrance Day and refereeing to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speech at the UN anti-racism summit in Geneva, Netanyahu praised the nations which chose to shun the meeting and the diplomats who walked out of the forum while Ahmadinejad was speaking.
