Santorum Says Huckabee ‘Is Absolutely Right’ about Iran Deal

While some other Republican presidential candidates are slamming Mike Huckabee for comparing the Iran nuclear deal with the Holocaust, Rick Santorum defended the former Arkansas governor on Monday.

Huckabee recently warned that the agreement diplomats from the United States and five other countries negotiated with Iran “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” He was referring to the gas chambers the Nazis used to kill Jews.

Breitbart News reported that Santorum, when asked on Fox News’ “John Gibson Radio” show about the controversial comment, responded that Huckabee “is absolutely right.”

“Most people in Israel would probably look at that and realize that Iran is as great a threat that Israel has ever faced,” the former Pennsylvania senator said. “They have been very, very clear about wiping Israel out. They’ve been very clear about pushing them into the sea. They have very much committed to destroying the state of Israel and the Jewish people.”

Santorum continued: “Remember, they hold Holocaust-denying conferences in Tehran routinely. … This is the same type of dehumanization of Jews, the same type of recreating history, that we saw in Nazi Germany. So, no, I see this regime as equally virulent in its hatred of Jews.”
