Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says the United States has a “moral obligation” to support Israel if it launches an attack on Iran to prevent a “second Holocaust.”

The former House speaker has called for the United States to take military action against Iran if sanctions do not stop their nuclear weapons development program. In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, he was asked how much longer the U.S. can afford to wait before striking.

Story continues below.


“I think what the Iranians have to understand is that we are not going to allow them to develop that program,” Gingrich responds.

“And frankly the Israelis, who are much more threatened than we are, may decide to do that much earlier than we would, in which case I think we have a moral obligation to back the Israelis.

“If the Iranians gave up their nuclear program, nobody in Israel is going to attack Iran. But if the Israelis allow them to get a nuclear program, there’s a very real danger that they are going to annihilate Israel and create a second Holocaust by wiping out millions of people.

“So I think the Israeli prime minister is under enormous pressure to not allow that to happen.”
