The Obama administration’s nuclear accord with Iran is comparable to the Holocaust, Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee intimated during an interview over the weekend.
Speaking with Breitbart News Saturday, the former Arkansas governor called Barack Obama “feckless” and “naive,” adding that by signing the deal the President “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. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped,” he said.
Huckabee has been an outspoken supporter of Israel and has visited the country several times in recent years.
During a 2014 press conference in Jerusalem, Huckabee also critiqued American Middle East policy, saying that he didn’t think that talks were “going anywhere at all.”
“Nothing has been asked of the Palestinians – nothing. Not one thing. And until there is some understanding that there must be recognition by the Palestinians of the Jewish state’s right to exist, I’m not sure what there is to discuss or negotiate.”
