During a two day whirlwind trip to Rome, Prime Minister Netanyahu lit the Chanukah candles in Rome’s main synagogue on Sunday night, alongside Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta.

Netanyahu had the following to say at the candle lighting ceremony, according to an AFP report:

“It is very easy to receive a pat on the shoulder from the international community, to bow one’s head.I would like to dispel any illusions. Iran aspires to attain an atomic bomb.

It would thus threaten not only Israel but also Italy, Europe and the entire world.

There should be no going astray after the attack of smiles. Today there is a regime in Iran that supports terrorism, facilitates the massacre of civilians in Syria and unceasingly arms its proxies”.

Netanyahu also met with Pope Francis in the Vatican on Monday morning.

In October, the Pope snubbed Netanyahu during his visit, claiming the visit wasn’t coordinated far enough in advance. The Pope found time to meet with Palestinian Authority Abbas at the time.

The Pope is considering a trip to Israel in May.

Six ministers joined Netanyahu on the trip, including Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman.

  1. If Israel is destroyed another Holocaust will have happened. Sis million Jews perished while the world abandoned us. Among the murdered was my family. American Jews speak out before it is too late. Stop being cowards afraid of what OBAMA says or thinks. I begged you not to vote for him as chairman for RABBIS FOR ROMNEY. INSTEAD THE MAJORITY VOTED FOR OBAMA.
    Downplaying the Holocaust — Sulzberger & NY Times: Anna Blech at TEDxHunterCCS – YouTube In my book "CONTEMPLATING THE HOLOCAUST'' I have entire chapter on this subject. Israel is in trouble and we listen to Obama and others who have interests OTHER than saving ISRAEL from destruction. Jews are attacks by blacks and we worry about racism. Let us stop being politically correct and protect our own people. .

  2. Matt McLaughlin says:

    'snub'? get real.

  3. Israel should only about their own safety, just like other normal nations, why are American Jews such cowards?

  4. You are not tasked with protecting Israel though. Mr. Netanyahu can't do it alone, and if he has to remind the world that nuclear proliferation isn't just a threat to Israel, he will. Nuclear fallout and cancer resulting from it do not know boundaries or nationalities. If he has to remind the world that we're in the same boat, so be it. It will be up to them to row with the rest of the crew or to row against it. Eventually, the ones rowing against the Captain and the crew will be sent overboard into the abyss, but until then, he can and should try to get some coordination even among those who haven't always been cooperative. Besides, as children of the original caretakers of this planet, we should be concerned with events that threaten life on this planet, regardless of nationality.

  5. Yechiel Baum, probably a lot more than just the Temple Menorah, Rome has been known to tithe in the past and if people couldnt pay confiscate their property. nazism anyone

  7. Yechiel Baum says:

    WHY DIDNT BIBI USE THE TEMPLE MENORAH STOLEN FROM THE HOLY TEMPLE OF JERUSALEMS BY THE ROMANS. IF OUTSIDE OF ISRAEL FOR CHANUKAH, AT LEAST HE SHOULD RETURN WITH IT. WOULD HT EPOPE BE OUTSIDE THE VATICAN OVER X-MAS? JEWISH HYPOCRASY!

  8. American Jews are cowards. It makes me sick. I don$y get it.

  9. Jill Cunniff says:

    Maybe when the Brits return the Elgin Marbles to Athens, they'll get the Menorah back.

  10. the man in the photo isn't the Italian prime minister…never mind….

  11. Thomas Ellis says:

    And i see not one Jew in the photo,

  12. why does the prime minister of Israel look so sad?
