Winston Churchill warned the British and Europe in 1938, and spent much time during that decade expressing his concerns of the pending threat of Nazi Germany during his broadcast. He asked America to join Europe to prevent the fascist regime from gaining any foothold. Churchill had insight on Adolf Hiller, who was a master of rhetoric. A year later after Churchill’s speech, Germany invaded Poland.

Today is no different with Iran.

John Bolton is no stranger when it comes to a nuclear Iran, and terrorists threats to the U.S., Israel and the world. The former ambassador to the United Nations and lawyer explained that Iran is more than a threat, and Israel and the rest of the free-world are in the crosshairs. Again, the warnings are falling on deaf ears today as the U.S. is negotiating with Iran, whose Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted for the elimination of Israel. 

“It’s a very difficult time for the United States and it friends around the world, for Israel and many other countries,” said Bolton addressing Israel supporters at the National Religious Broadcasters Conference. “Our friends are worried about us. They are worried about our resolve. They are worried about our continual commitment.”

We have leadership who think America’s strength is provocative. This has inspired America’s adversaries to take advantage Bolton explained. America’s enemies are delighted in the passivity of the Obama Administration during the threat of international terrorism. “We can see medieval acts of barbarianism,” said Bolton referring to the beheadings of Americans, and Jordon's pilot who was burned to death by ISIS this year. “The actions of the terrorists have no limits. I think the United States along with the permanent members of the security cabinet council in Germany are about to sign an agreement with the Ayatollah of Iran for their nuclear weapons program,”  he said.

Ayatollah tweeted about the destruction of Israel before Netanyahu’s speech on March 3.

“This would be in my judgment the biggest single act of appeasement by the West since Munich in September 1938. This is a catastrophic blunder we are about to make.” British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, Benito Mussolini, French representative Premier Edouard Daladier, and Adolf Hitler signed the Munich Pact at Hitler’s mountaintop retreat in Germany, leaving Czechoslovakia at the mercy of the Nazis. Hitler charmed, and appeased the international community, and Chamberlain walked away feeling good about the meeting. Hitler would invade Poland the following year.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint Congress echoing the warning of Churchill, but instead of Germany, he warned that Iran could “endanger our very existence.”

“Some people like the Jews, and some do not. But no thoughtful man can deny the fact that they are, beyond any question, the most formidable and most remarkable race which has appeared in the world,” Churchhill said.
