Netanyahu says Muslim extremists, like those who attacked US embassies, are seeking to take the Middle East back to the dark ages. He says they will ultimately fail.

“It’s not whether this fanaticism will be defeated,” he says. “It’s how many lives will be lost before it is defeated.”

Now he invokes the Nazis, who “went down in flames” but took millions down with them. “We cannot let that happen again… At stake is not only my country… but the world” and that requires thwarting a would-be nuclear Iran.

“Just look at what the Iranian regime has done up to now, without nuclear weapons” — putting down mass protests at home in 2009, and now directly participating in the mass murders in Syria, he says. “They’ve turned Lebanon and Gaza into terror strongholds.”
