Read this editorial about Kristallnacht by Ronald S. Lauder, President of the World Jewish Congress, and how history could repeat itself: "While Israel's neighbors slaughter hundreds of thousands of their own, we see the growing, visceral hatred of the Jewish state throughout Europe. We see a United Nations that appears incapable of stopping any form of genocide and instead, focuses its attention and condemnation on the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel. We see the mullahs of Iran pushing to create nuclear bombs along with the long-range missiles to deliver them. All the while, we hear Iran's leaders mockingly boast that they will wipe Israel from the pages of history. Once again, we see world leaders incapable of acting, refusing to see what is right in front of them, pretending that what the Iranian mullahs say and what they do isn't real, that it's not really happening. We see a Western world that is lulled into a false sense of security by a new Iranian president whose track record is not nearly as good as people think. Let's hope the world does not wait again until it is too late to stop the calamity."
