Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared on Sunday that he had little faith in the planned French Middle East peace summit.

Netanyahu also spoke with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday night, calling upon the US to condemn an Iranian Holocaust cartoon contest and condemning Iran for “preparing another Holocaust”.

“Over the weekend Iran convened a special Holocaust-denial cartoon contest. We raise this here because it must be understood what our problem with Iran is.
