Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Wednesday, October 21, 2015. A spokesman to Merkel released a statement Wednesday gently repudiating Netanyahu’s earlier comments that blamed a Palestinian mufti for instigating the Holocaust: “All Germans know the history of the murderous race mania of the Nazis that led to the break with civilization that was the Holocaust. This is taught in German schools for good reason; it must never be forgotten. And I see no reason to change our view of history in any way. We know that responsibility for this crime against humanity is German and very much our own.”
