Ben Stein: Iran Deal Makes Chamberlain's Pact With Nazis Seem Trivial

By    |   Tuesday, 14 July 2015 08:35 AM

The nuclear proliferation agreement struck between Iran and Western powers “is a deal that is going to make Neville Chamberlain’s Munich Pact with Hitler seem trivial by comparison,” actor, author and former White House speechwriter Ben Stein said Monday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

Chamberlain was the British prime minister who in 1938 made a deal conceding portions of Czechoslovakia to Adolf Hitler's Germany. Hitler claimed the region and went on to invade Poland. World War II broke out within a year.

“This is a deal which basically paves the way for Iran to become a nuclear power that can threaten the whole rest of the world with ballistic missiles, that has already pledged to annihilate Israel, that has pledged, within its ability to do so, to annihilate the U.S.,” Stein said Monday, a day before an announcement of the Iran deal.

“The idea that we are signing a pact with a country which is proclaiming death to Israel, death to the U.S., we’re signing a pact that basically allows them to get nuclear weapons and to get the means to delivery is simply astonishing.”

Stein balked at the suggestion by some that the Iran deal is akin to President Richard Nixon going to China.

China, according to Stein, was already a “major, gigantic power” when Nixon visited in 1972, and his trip provided the U.S. a “gigantic, strategic plus … which was encircling the Soviet Union.”

“There’s no strategic plus in (the Iran deal) for the United States,” Stein continued. “All there is is just taking Iran, a meddlesome, dangerous, killer, terrorist state and making a nuclear power. People who want to die, people who've pledged to die in order to eliminate Israel. This is a scary group of people to allowed to have a nuclear weapon.”
