NEW YORK — Israel’s consul general in New York said Sunday that the world needs to take a tougher stance with Iran and warned that a “strong” and “determined” Israel will never allow another Jewish Holocaust.

“It’s important that the world understands that this is not an Israeli issue, it’s a world problem, and the world must stop Iran,” Arye Mekel said. “At this time, we would hope that the Security Council of the United Nations would impose economic and political sanctions against Iran. Let’s be clear: That country cannot, cannot have nuclear weapons.”
