Finally - A European Leader Who Get's It!

Jerusalem Post | Merkel: Nazi past shows that Iran must be stopped. The problem of radical Islam in Iran (and elsewhere) is - acording to Angela Merkel - akin the Nazi movement in the 1930s. In the '30s people said, the Nazi threat did not need to be met decisively. Of course nothing was done (right up to Neville Chamberlain doing nothing) until it was almost too late.
"Looking back the to German history in the early 1930s when National Socialism was on the rise there were many outside Germany who said it is only rhetoric - don't get excited," Merkel said. "There were times when people could have reacted differently, and in my point of view, Germany is obliged to do something at the early stages."
Iran has denied the holocaust, and has called for the destruction of Israel. Letting them get nuclear weapons would be the worst kind of irresponsible on the part of the world.
