Netanyahu compares Ahmadinejad to Hitler

The Associated Press: April 16, 2008

JERUSALEM: Israeli opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu is comparing Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Adolf Hitler and likening Tehran's nuclear program to the threat the Nazis posed to Europe in the late 1930s.

The former premier, who leads the conservative Likud Party, repeated Israeli charges that Iran seeks to acquire nuclear arms. Tehran says it is pursuing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, but has called for Israel to be obliterated .

Speaking Wednesday at a news conference on the Iran threat, Netanyahu said it differed from that of the Nazis in one vital respect.

"Where that regime embarked on a global conflict before it developed nuclear weapons," he said." This regime is developing nuclear weapons before it embarks on a global conflict." (IHT)
