Today's Quote: Holocaust Remembrance and Nazi Germany
"If there's something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance it's the recognition of the nauseating processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then - 70, 80 and 90 years ago - and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016."
"There is, after all, nothing easier and simpler than hating the foreigner... arousing fears and terrifying."
Israel Defense Forces' Deputy Chief of Staff, Maj-Gen Yair Golan, commenting on trends in Israeli society ahead of the Israeli day of remembrance marked last Thursday.
The statement of Golan drew fire from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who described his words as "outrageous" and argued they would bring harm to Israel.
