Santorum: ‘Governor Huckabee Is Absolutely Right’

On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “John Gibson Radio,” Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum defended fellow presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for his comments that President Obama trusting Iran “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”

Santorum refused to criticize Huckabee for his remarks, and argued that “most people in Israel would probably look at that and realize that Iran is as great a threat that Israel has ever faced. They have been very, very clear about wiping Israel out. They’ve been very clear about pushing them into the sea. It’s — they have very much committed to destroying the state of Israel and the Jewish people. I have no…I think Governor Huckabee is absolutely right. … 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.”

He added, “The president’s basically now going to be the greatest funder of terrorism in the world by opening up hundreds of millions — hundreds of billions of dollars to the Iranian…government to purvey terror all over the world. I mean, this deal is every bit as bad as everyone has — as you’ve heard, and then some.” And that there can’t be “strong enough language” against the deal, which he characterized as an “abdication of his [the president’s] principle duty of protecting this country, and he has put Israel directly in the sights of an anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic country that wants to wipe it out.”
