Peres: I Doubt Assad Ever Read Anne Frank’s Diary


peresPresident Shimon Peres, on a visit to the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam, compared today the gassing of millions of Jews during the Holocaust to the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

“I doubt that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad read the Diary of Anne Frank, since he did not hesitate to use chemical weapons and kill innocent children and women,” said Peres, adding, “Same goes for Iran which develops nuclear weapons of mass destruction.”

He added, “I cannot refrain from addressing what is happening around us and say in a clear voice that Anne Frank’s warning sign also stands before us today. Your voice, Anne, is the voice that rings in our ears and will forever remind the Jewish people and the entire world of the victory of the sons of light over the sons of darkness.”
