Short transcript:

Krauthammer: Let's understand, this resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe -- eventually the Jews will leave. The pressure of the anti-Semitism will become very intolerable. It'll be empty of Jews ultimately. But the threat to Jewish life, the threat to the endurance of Jews as a people is not from Europe. That deed is done. The Holocaust happened. European Jews were wiped out. The threat today, and it is a real threat, it's a recurrence of a threat is from its enemies in the Middle East.


Israel is now for the first time since Jesus is not just the only Jewish state on the planet, it's the largest community of Jews on the planet anywhere. And it is now threatened by a regime in iran that openly says it wants to eradicate it. What it took Hitler to do seven years can now be done in seven hours in one day with nuclear weapons and we are talking as if we're ready to live with an Iranian state that has that, and that, I think, is the threat, the new Auschwitz that the Jews as a people are looking at.
