Safiyyah bint huay and Zainab bint Jahsh were Prophets wives.

Safiyyah's husband was killed. Did she adhere to iddah before marriage to prophet? Was Iddah applicable to her because of her parent faith Judaism?

Zainab was divorced from zaid bin Harris, did she follow waiting period before marriage to prophet?

If both had waiting period why dont the attackers on prophet forego this thing or muslim debators of Islam fail to mention this? 3 months waiting works against lust

Yes.

Hadith record that the prophet proposed to Zaynab bint Jahsh after her iddah:

لما انقضت عدة زينب، قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لزيد: فاذكرها علي

When the 'Iddah of Zainab was over, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said to Zaid: 'Make, mention of me to her (for marriage)'.

Muslim

As for Safiyyah bint Huyayy, she was a prisoner of war and the ruling for that case is that they observe istibra rather than iddah, which is the passage of one menses (see here). It is explicitly recorded that the prophet married her after that:

فخرج بها، حتى بلغنا سد الصهباء حلت، فبنى بها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

When we reached a place called Sidd-as-Sahba, Safiya became clean (from her menses) then Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) married her.

As for your last question, it is the job of Islam's enemies to criticize it in anyway including by making baseless allegations and then to insist on it. Why do you care what they say?
