Israel PM warns of Iran threat on Holocaust Day

ImageJERUSALEM (AFP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused world governments on Sunday of failing to show sufficient concern about the threat posed by Iran as he marked the Jewish state's annual Holocaust Day.

"We are not hearing the protests that we would expect to hear," Netanyahu told a commemoration ceremony after sundown.

"The world is going about its business as though it's a fuss about nothing… while (Iran) steps up its efforts to arm itself with nuclear weapons and threatens to wipe Israel off the map," he added.

"What annoys me is the lack of indignation shown by the rest of the world."

Israel, which has the Middle East's sole if undeclared nuclear arsenal, shares Western suspicions that Iran's nuclear problem is cover for a drive for a weapons capability.

Iran insists that its programme is aimed solely at medical research and power generation.

Israel regards Iran as its major foe after repeated predictions by hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the Jewish state is doomed to be wiped off the map.

Ahmadinejad has also sparked international outrage by questioning whether the murder of six million Jews by Nazi Germany and its allies during World War II really took place.
