Will Mike Huckabee be our Ambassador to Israel?
Mike Huckabee is a man for whom I truly respect on all levels. It is now suggested that he will be our Ambassador to Israel. I hadn't even considered that position but I believe it would be one that is well suited for him, for us and for Israel.
Wikipedia: Huckabee calls Israel an "ally," "America's greatest friend in the region," and says Israel should have access to advanced weapons and technology. He is a Christian Zionist politician, and has written that, "the Jews have a God-given right to reclaim land given to their ancestors and taken away from them."
Huckabee stated that he supports creating a Palestinian state, but believes that it should be formed outside of Israel. He named Egypt and Saudi Arabia as possible alternatives, noting that the Arabs have far more land than the Israelis and that it would only be fair for other Arab nations to give the Palestinians land for a state, rather than carving it out of the tiny Israeli state.
