Today, Huckabee said President Obama is marching Israelis "to the door of the oven" by agreeing to the Iran nuclear deal. Is this more or less offensive than anything Trump has said so far?

We have a incredibly active & strong military commitment to Israel.An attack on Israel will be seen & defended as an attack on the U.S. If Trump can't grasp this basic concept he cannot be commander & Chief.4 his comment, he deserves the gas chamber

More offensive to me personally since I'm Jewish and Trump hasn't said anything anti-Semitic (yet). Really, it's offensive whenever a gentile tries to speak for the Jewish people.

Christians like Huckabee would like Jews to think the only reason we are so successful in America is because of the goodwill and generosity of Christians.

However, we were successful because we worked hard and, on fact, overcame more anti Semitism here, in some cases, then we did in Europe. Also we have the highest average IQ of any ethnic, religious, or racial group in the world at 110.
