Merkel: No connection between Iran and Holocaust?

Coming from the Chancellor of the country that perpetrated the Holocaust at a press conference with the leader of the country that most embodies its survivors regarding the country that denies the Holocaust and threatens to produce another one, this statement is simply incredible.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in response to a question about the analogy being made between Iran and Nazism, "There is no comparison between the Holocaust and the Iranian nuclear program. Things have changed since then.

"The Germans did unthinkable things to the Jewish people and therefore, I believe the result is the German need to defend Israel and maintain its security. This is why we feel so responsible now in the Iranian matter as well. We will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Israel against the Iranian threat. Nonetheless, I object to the analogy between the two things."
As Caroline Glick points out, if there is no comparison, then Germany is not duty bound to prevent Iran from going nuclear. So what does Merkel's statement mean? Not very much. Germany will 'stand shoulder-to-shoulder' with Israel, but that doesn't mean it will give up its lucrative trade with Iran. Just like the rest of Europe.

Europe is not going to give its trade with an increasingly radical Iran. That's the bottom line.

The news is not good.
