Despite the nuclear-arms reduction agreement the United States has hammered out with Iran, the Middle East nation known for its terrorist activities remains extremely dangerous, says former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Michigan.

"Iran poses a threat to all of the countries that used to be our friends. They're up to no good in Iraq, the Saudis are nervous about them, the Israelis are nervous about them," Hoekstra told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"The whole Middle East is very, very nervous of a resurgent and, really, now, a liberated Iran that is much closer to a nuclear weapon than what we ever thought that they would get."

Hoekstra, who was chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Iranians have a "tremendous amount of things to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving day. Americans have much to be nervous about."

"How do you tell it's a bad deal? When the Israelis and the Saudis are in agreement, that is a bad deal. And the Iranians think it is a great deal."
