Secretary of State John Kerry has been in Europe meeting with representatives of the Iranian Muslim government. They are working on a nuclear weapons treaty.

The Iranian regime has been financing and promoting terrorism, beheadings, bombings, etc. Iranian officials have called publicly for the destruction of the nation of Israel and for the same end to the United States, referring to the U.S. as the “great satan.” They have violated previous treaties. Why would the U.S. negotiate with such evil people?

In 1938, Neville Chamberlain, prime minister of Great Britain, went to Munich, Germany, to negotiate with Adolph Hitler. He gave approval to Hitler to occupy part of Czechoslovakia. Chamberlain thought he had achieved “peace in our time.” The following year, Hitler invaded Poland.

Negotiating with Iran is no better than with Hitler, and will yield the same results.

It is folly to try to negotiate with murderers.
