So says Israel’s former chief of staff: “Former chief of staff Ya’alon: Ahmadinejad should be dealt with like Hitler,” from the Jerusalem Post, September 21:
The international community must deal with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as it dealt with Adolf Hitler, former chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Moshe Ya’alon said Sunday.
“We in the West are in the same situation, indecisiveness in the face of a threat that is no less severe than the threat Hitler posed in 1938-39,” Ya’alon told Army Radio.
“We can still stop Iran with diplomatic and economic means, but if that doesn’t work, a military confrontation will be unavoidable,” he said, adding, pessimistically, that “the writing is on the wall” for a military solution.
