"Never again"


Comparisons have been made: Obama appears like Neville Chamberlain of Britain during WWII;  Netanyahu is compared to Churchill.
Some Democrats are livid over this speech; Nancy Pelosi for one.
But what keeps coming to me is that those who object do not really seem to take seriously the threat of a nuclear Iran. Compared to that, ISIS is nothing. As Netanyahu said, ISIS and Iran have the same goal in mind: world domination. They are at odds who will lead that. ISIS conquers with knives and beheadings; Iran will get nukes and blow everyone up.
Pretty darn obvious to me. Listen to the man. This feels like 1937. People didn't listen then either.
Elie Wiesel was in the Congress to hear Netanyahu. This is a Jewish man who survived the holocaust, was a professor of history and political activist, author of 57 books including "Night" an autobiographical account of his time in the concentration camps, and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1996 for his writings. For him, Netanyahu said "never again".

The constant Israel bashing has worn me. People just can't seem to to stop using them as their target board.
