Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee -- a former Baptist pastor -- has come under fire from both Jewish groups and the Deemocratic party after comparing America's nuclear accord with Iran to the Holocaust, the Jerusalem Post website reports today (July 27, 2015).
Speaking with Breitbart News on July 25, the former Arkansas governor said that President Obama -- by signing the nuclear deal with Iran -- "will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."
"This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people," he said.
Huckabee's comments drew immediate condemnation from the Democratic National Committee, the National Jewish Democratic Council, and the Anti-Defamation League.
