    Mike Huckabee: Iran Nuclear Deal Will Lead Israelis to 'Door of the Oven'

    Republican presidential hopeful, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee speaks at a campaign event Thursday, July 23, 2015, in Las Vegas.

    Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who has been vocal about his disapproval of the Iran nuclear deal, likened the accord to events of the Holocaust.

    Calling the agreement "idiotic," the former governor of Arkansas told Breitbert News that President Obama will ultimately "take Israelis and march them to the door of the oven." Huckabee, known to invoke the genocide of Jews by Nazis in his debates, is an avid supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    The National Jewish Democratic Council called on members to denounce Huckabee's comments. Earlier this month, Congress began a 60-day review of the nuclear deal, which would curb Iran's nuclear in exchange for easing of the sanctions.
