Say what?

Israeli PM Netanyahu compares radical Muslims to Nazis

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday likened Muslim extremists to Nazis and warned of what would happen if the ideology is allowed to spread unchecked.

"Militant Islam's ambition to dominate the world seems mad," he said in an address at the United Nations. "But so too did the global ambitions of another fanatic ideology that swept into power eight decades ago."

"The Nazis believed in a master race," he added. "The militant Islamists believe in a master faith."

Netanyahu also called ISIS and Hamas "branches of the same poisonous tree," saying they "share a fanatical creed." And, in an unexpected metaphor, he compared Iran to ISIS — and to ex-Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.

Jeter retired Sunday after 20 seasons in pinstripes.
