Israel’s International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz warns that a nuclear Iran is the equivalent of 30 nuclear North Koreas, reports Arutz Sheva 7.

Steinitz, speaking at The Jerusalem Post Conference in New York, said that 80 years ago “only one person identified on time and warned the world against the rearmament of Nazi Germany. This was Winston Churchill, but people refused to listen. Some people even mocked him. We shouldn’t repeat the same mistake again.”

The Nazis pushed for a “final solution” of exterminating Jews during the Holocaust, he said, and today Iran calls for destroying the Jewish state in the Middle East.

“We have to learn from history, even if it doesn’t repeat itself exactly,” Steinitz said.

On another subject, Steinitz denied accusations that Israel has pressured the United States to take military action in Syria following news that the Bashar Assad regime has used chemical weapons.

“It is up to the U.S. to decide its policy on Syria,” he said. “Of course, we exchange views with the U.S. about the situation; it’s a very complex and difficult issue."
