Benjamin Netanyahu spoke during the inauguration of a new pavilion at the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz that is to educate visitors about the Holocaust and the Nazis’ quest to exterminate Jews.

President Mohammed Morsi gathered a group of politicians last week who thought they were speaking privately at a parliamentary meeting.
