Ben Stein: Nuclear Iran Potential for Another Holocaust
New CBS contributor Ben Stein made reference to the Holocaust as proof that Israeli Jews know “they have to save themselves” from a nuclear Iran.
The economic and political consultant warned of a second Holocaust if Iran were to use a nuclear bomb against Israel, which is “a tiny country, and one nuclear bomb detonated over Tel Aviv would indeed make another holocaust.”
“It is all fine to urge patience on Israel, to assure Israel that sanctions maybe will work. ‘Maybe’ is not good enough. The Israeli Jews – the children and grandchildren of the wretched survivors of the Holocaust – cannot accept ‘maybe’. They have learned the hard way that here on Earth, there have not been many Passovers for a long time,” Stein said.
Stein says the United States is the only country to stand up for Israel in “a meaningful way” since World War II, and that world’s “word” that Iran won’t be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, means very little to Jews around the world.
