Sen. Chuck Grassley's tweet reference to Hitler's 1939 invasion of Poland, as part of statement that the US currently lacks a foreign policy, is "spot on," says Mark Langfan, Chairman of Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI).
On Saturday, Senator Grassley from Iowa tweeted:
US has no foreign policy. We should remember what happened the last time we had no foreign policy. It was Sept 1939 Hitler started WWII [in]Poland

The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) promptly attacked Sen. Grassley, claiming his "Hitler" reference was "absolutely inappropriate."
The NJDC further escalated its rhetoric by demanding an apology, and saying the Senator should "realize the dangers of making such extreme comparisons."
AFSI Chairman Langfan responded by saying that "the NJDC won't recognize there's another Hitler out there until another 6 million Jews have been murdered."
He further stated that Sen. Grassley is a modern-day hero and his Hitler reference is "100 percent appropriate."
"If America had men with the vision of Sen. Grassley in 1939, maybe we could have stopped Hitler before Hitler laid waste to the free world, and exterminated 6,000,000 Jews," Langfan added.
"Maybe the NJDC doesn't read the newspapers, but the Iranian-controlled Assad has just murdered 100,000 human beings, and has aimed his missiles at Tel Aviv. NJDC is more interested in shilling for Obama than defending a democratic Israel."
