Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz says that President Trump’s hard-line approach to Iran and the nuclear agreement signed by his predecessor is “historic” and “dramatic.”

Katz — who has ambitions to become Israel’s next prime minister — compared the landmark nuclear accord reached in 2015 between Iran and world powers to a modern-day equivalent of the infamous Munich Agreement in 1938. In that pact, Allied nations tried to avoid war by acknowledging Nazi Germany’s annexation of part of what was then Czechoslovakia — a prelude to other invasions that touched off World War II.

“The threat from Iran is serious. I compare the nuclear deal to the Munich Agreement. I am not saying that Trump is like [former British prime minister] Winston Churchill, but I believe if Churchill had had the chance to cancel or change the agreement [Churchill’s predecessor Neville] Chamberlain reached with Hitler, then we might have prevented what happened after that,” Katz said.
