Steiner and those like him miss the tragic element regarding the state of the Jews. Israel is the only country in the world that sees other countries calling, either bluntly or meekly, for wiping it off the map. Not only do he and his colleagues fail to recognize this, they also fail to note that Israel is actually the one that adopts limitations and restraint on using its defensive force, and even on addressing it, more than any other defensive democracy. Perhaps it does so precisely because of its moral heritage and Jewish values.
However, on Holocaust Memorial Day, we are permitted to and in fact, obligated to make it clear to others that there will be no situation whereby the State of Israel will be harmed without those who perpetrate this, including their collaborators, paying the full price for it. The decree Never Again does not only mean that no longer will we be defenseless, but also that those who harm us will not be spared.
Peres and Ben-Eliezer made it clear - and they were telling the truth. Recognizing this would ensure the realization of the Never Again decrees original meaning there will no longer be anyone who will dare rise against us.

I am on Isreal’s side.
i choose the jews toos...er too...
That quote needs to be repeated, over and over again.
Never Again!!! (but IF again, than not for free).
I think that even the most Left-wing of Israeli politicians agrees that if some nation nukes Israel or otherwise murders very large numbers of its citizens, then many dozens of Arab cities will and should turn into glow-in-the-dark parking lots with large craters in the middle. The Aswan High Dam will cease to exist, and the resultant flood will destroy Egypt as a functioning society just as thoroughly as the 10 plagues. For that matter, I wouldn’t want to own any real estate in Russia or Germany.
