ZOA: Huckabee's 'Holocaust Analogy Acceptable'

Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee's assertion that the American-Iranian nuclear accord “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven" is an acceptable analogy, the Zionist Organization of America said on Tuesday.
Huckabee came under intense criticism from the White House, the Anti-Defamation League and congressional Democrats for what they contend is an inappropriate use of Holocaust imagery.
While ZOA President Morton Klein said that he generally opposes the use of Holocaust analogies "because they usually bear no relation to unique horrors of the Nazi era," Huckabee's statement is substantively different.
"Tragically, empowering with an eventual nuclear weapons capacity -- as this deal does, and as President Barack Obama himself has admitted -- an Iranian regime that has repeatedly spoken of wiping out the Jewish state of Israel does bear some relationship to the Nazi era and Governor Huckabee, therefore, did not speak out of place," he said.
