US: Democrats demand apology from Huckabee over Israel comments
July 27 , 2015
US Republican leader Mike Huckabee’s comments over the Iranian nuclear deal have triggered a controversy, with the Democrats demanding an apology from the presidential candidate.
In an apparent reference to the death camps run by the Nazis, Huckabee said US President Barack Obama was marching the Israeli people to “the door of the oven”.
Democratic leaders have condemned the remarks as “grossly irresponsible” and asked him to apologize to the “Jewish community and to the American people”.
