Israel Katz’s idiotic response to Huckabee’s brave statement

Finally someone in the US tells the truth and here we have an Israeli politician undermining the most brilliant stand I have seen on American television for some time. Shooting ourselves in the foot!

Of course, Israel will not permit this from happening, but the world must know what would happen if Israel does not act, so Huckabee is absolutely right. 

What Huckabee’s interview with FOX New revealed to me is that Americans, even Fox News, DO NOT have any idea what is going on.  This is really scary

I think the Israeli government is trying to be diplomatic with a president who obviously has gone beyond diplomacy. Ron Dremer does not doubt the “sincerity of the president or his team when they believe this deal makes not only America safer, makes Israel safer”

But it is irrelevant what Obama administration thinks they  achieving and even their  motivation. What matters is the  net effect. And the net effect of Obama’s absurd policy of appeasement of Iran is that he was marching Israel  to the door of the oven.  

Likud minister to Huckabee: Nobody marches the Jews to ovens anymore


Transportation Minister Israel Katz (Likud) on Tuesday rejected comments made by Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee in which the former Arkansas governor invoked the Holocaust in his criticism of the Iran nuclear deal.

Huckabee has faced accusations of extremism and partisanship from US President Barack Obama, the Democratic Party and the Anti-Defamation League after saying over the weekend that, with the Iran deal, Obama would "take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."

Katz, who is considered one of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's closest allies in the Likud, implied Tuesday that Israel was stronger than Huckabee's comments suggest.

"Respected Mr. Huckabee: nobody marches the Jews to ovens anymore," Katz stated. "To this end we established the State of Israel and the IDF; and, if need be, we will know how to defend ourselves, by ourselves."

Katz agreed that the Iran deal must not allow the "Iranian terror kingdom" to become a nuclear threshold state, but said that the comments by Huckabee were "wrong and unnecessary."

Huckabee is running for the Republican nomination for president, and his rivals weighed in on his controversial remarks on Monday. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said the comments were "just wrong," despite his staunch disapproval of the agreement; while former senator Rick Santorum said the remarks were "absolutely right."

In Jerusalem, Netanyahu continued his assault against the Iran deal during a speech he gave in the Knesset.

Syrian President Bashar Assad and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah are already celebrating the billions of dollars Iran will receive as a result of this agreement, which will be used to help them in their terrorist activities, Netanyahu said.

Iran, he added, continues to threaten the United States in spite of the agreement and has already declared that its nuclear sites will not be inspected even though it is one of its obligations under the deal, Netanyahu said.

“This agreement gives international legitimacy to Iranian nuclear armament in the future and its continued aggressive activity in the present,” said Netanyahu as he explained that Iran was the largest terrorist state in the world.
