Merkel compares Iran nuke policy to rise of Nazism

German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged the international community on Saturday to act without delay to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, saying that Iran had "blatantly crossed the line." The chancellor compared Iran's nuclear policy to the Nazi party's rise to power in Germany, warning that in the past the nations of the world refused to take a stance against concrete threats, enabling some of history's greatest catastrophes. Merkel also condemned Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his refusal to recognize Israel. "Any president that questions Israel's right to exist and questions the Holocaust cannot expect any tolerance from Germany," she warned.
