Diplomacy, Mike Huckabee-style: “Former U.S. presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said Tuesday there should be no Palestinian state in the West Bank and endorsed Israeli settlements there, sharply disagreeing with Washington and much of the world,” according to the Associated Press. Huckabee is on a three-day tour of the Jewish state, which included stops at a hardline settlement that even Israel’s government considers illegal and also another settlement that the Obama administration has demanded be halted. "The question is should the Palestinians have a place to call their own? Yes, I have no problem with that,” Huckabee said. “Should it be in the middle of the Jewish homeland? That's what I think has to be honestly assessed as virtually unrealistic."
