    Chanoch Ben Dov: Image by zeevveez via FlickrMofaz: Israel will not accept a nuclear-armed Iran. All means of prevention legitimate

    May 1, 2008, 1:06 PM (GMT+02:00)

    The Israeli transport minister Shaul Mofaz, speaking at Yale University Tuesday night, April 30, on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day, warned Iran may attain command of enrichment technology before the end of this year. He said: "Israel will not tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran. This time, the Jewish people won't let it happen. I would like to believe the world will not let it happen. To prevent this, all means are legitimate."

    Israel's annual Holocaust remembrance ceremonies focused this year on the theme of courage displayed by Warsaw Ghetto Uprising leaders 65 years ago, knowing they were doomed. Israeli's president and prime minister laid wreaths in their honor at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Institute in Jerusalem.

    Israelis stood in silence as sirens wailed for two minutes in remembrance of the victims of Nazi World War II genocide, two-thirds of Europe's nine million Jews. Cafes and places of entertainment were closed and TV and radio broadcast special programs.

    In Sderot, memorial ceremonies took place in a new, fortified social center under relentless Palestinian missile fire from Gaza - nine by midday Thursday.

    And in Poland, Israel's chief of staff Lt. Gen. Gaby Ashkenazi led the March of Life from the gates of the former Auschwitz concentration camp to Birkenau. He was joined by 12,000 people from 52 countries. In a short speech, the general noted that the world had stood aside when the Nazis murdered the Jews of Europe.

    Avram Grant, the British Chelsea football team's Israeli coach, whose mother was a Holocaust survivor, joined the procession.
