Action movie star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger published a 12-minute video on YouTube tonight (Tuesday), in which he called to fight the rise of anti-Semitism and urged movements that spread hatred towards Jews to stop their actions.

In the video, Schwarzenegger talked about his visit to the Auschwitz camp last year, and the thoughts that came to him following the tour, and the goal that something similar never happens again.

"Once you spend time really thinking about [what happened in Auschwitz], then your imagination has no choice but to start the real work: how do we make sure it doesn't happen again in the future? After visiting Auschwitz you never question why 'never again' is the call of everyone who fought to prevent another holocaust. You don't doubt it. But today, I don't want to talk to them. Today I want to talk to those who turned in the wrong direction, on the wrong path," Schwarzenegger said, addressing everyone "who heard conspiracies about Jews or Any other race or gender and thought it made sense to him," and said that although many think there is nothing to talk about with extremists, he "understands how people can fall into the trap of prejudice and hatred."

"There has never been a successful movement based on hate. The Nazis? Losers. The Confederacy? Losers. The apartheid movement? Losers. I don't want you to be losers," Schwarzenegger said.

"It's easier to make the excuse that Jews conspired together to hurt you, than to admit that you simply should have worked harder. It's easier to hate than to learn."

"No one who chose the easy path of hatred reached the end of the road and said to himself: 'What a life I had.' No. They died miserably as they lived," he added.

"No matter how far you've come, I want you to know that you still have a chance to choose a life of strength... You have to win the war against yourself."

"So the bottom line: I don't care how many offensive things you may have written online, I don't care how many times you marched with a hateful flag, or what things you said in an hour of anger - you still have hope and time," concluded the actor.

"Choose strength. Choose life. Conquer your mind. You can do it."

Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, rose to fame in the 1980s and 1990s as the star of successful action films such as Conan the Barbarian and Terminator.
