Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has threatened to destroy enemies of the Jewish state.

In a speech marking the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day, the former special forces soldier turned politician warned: 'Those who threaten to destroy us risk being destroyed themselves.'

At the Yom Hashoah ceremony in Yad Vashem, Mr Netanyahu said: 'Iran and the Islamic state want to destroy us, and a hatred for Jews is being directed towards the Jewish state today.

'From being defenceless people, we have become a state with a defensive capacity that is among the strongest in the world,' he added.

Netanyahu said the lesson of the Holocaust is that 'we must be able to defend ourselves by ourselves against all threats and any enemy.'

Adding this lesson guides him 'every morning and every evening.'

At the event, six Holocaust survivors lit torches in memory of the six million Jews killed by the Nazis during the Second World War.

Israel will come to a standstill today as sirens wail for two minutes in the morning.

Pedestrians typically stop in their tracks, and cars and buses halt on the streets while drivers and passengers step out of their vehicles to stand with their heads bowed

Radio stations and television channels on Sunday were broadcasting programmes about the genocide.

More than 213,000 Holocaust survivors live in Israel today, many of them below the poverty line, according to survivors' groups.

They are serious about that NEVER AGAIN stuff, as well they should be. There are still people alive over there who remember the camps. They will not go gently.
