British David Cameron said that the horrors of the Holocaust should bring out outrage in people who are against facing the reality that the Assad regime is using chemical weapons in Syria.
He told the Holocaust Education Trust’s annual dinner in London on Monday, “The evidence [is] before our eyes,” the London Jewish Chronicle reported. He referred to “the flagrant breach of an international taboo against the use of chemical weapons, the refugee crisis of our time, and a man-made humanitarian catastrophe where 6.8 million in Syria are in need of humanitarian assistance.”
The House of Commons dealt Cameron a several political blow three weeks ago when it narrowly rejected his requests for agreeing to military intervention in Syria to stop the use of chemical weapons.
Speaking of his reaction to watching videos of the victims after the poison gas attack last month that killed more than 1,000 people,, he stated, “I saw children’s bodies stored in ice. Young men and women gasping for air and suffering the most agonizing deaths — all inflicted by weapons that have been outlawed for nearly a century. I saw young people suffering agonizing deaths
“And let’s not forget, these chemical weapons also pose a massive potential threat to Israel….
“Let me assure you that the safety of Israel will always be a fundamental concern for me. With me as Prime Minister, Britain will never stand by. We will not stand by when people talk with genocidal intent about the Jewish people — as the Iranian regime has done. We will not stand by as the Iranians continue their path to nuclear weapons.
“And we will back Israel’s right to defend itself, when rockets from terrorists… are fired into Israeli homes.”
