Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law professor emeritus and noted defender of Israel, has reacted to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s comments on Breitbart News Saturday. “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven,” Huckabee said.
“There will be no ovens this time, as long as Israel has the right and might to defend its citizens from those who deny the Holocaust while calling for another one,” Dershowitz told Breitbart News on Sunday.
Dershowitz, a liberal Democrat and supporter of President Barack Obama, has been very critical of the Iran deal, and of Obama’s position on Iran from the earliest days of his administration.
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has called on Huckabee to apologize: “This rhetoric, while commonplace in today’s Republican presidential primary, has no place in American politics,” she said.
