Huckabee Wants Palestinians Resettled in “Muslim Territory”

3 February 2011 3 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

How outright disgusting can Mike Huckabee get? Suggesting Palestinians should be resettled from their homes to Muslim territory, he also exposes his ignorance of the fact that there are Palestinian Christians and I shudder to think that this guy is a candidate for 2012.

Huckabee: Palestinians Should Be Resettled In ‘Muslim’ Territory

Far from Iowa, likely Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee told a crowd of Jewish Israelis yesterday that he’d be just as mad as they are if anybody tried to kick him out of America the way Israelis are being asked to not build or live in disputed lands.

“I cannot imagine as an American being told that I could not live in certain places in America because I was Christian, or because I was white, or because I spoke English,” Huckabee said. “I would be outraged if someone told me that in my country, I would be prohibited and forbidden to live in a part of that country, for any reason.”

Huckabee was attending a cornerstone-laying ceremony for a new neighborhood on the Mount of Olives in east Jerusalem — a disputed territory in the Middle East that Huckabee says should belong to Israel. East Jerusalem and the adjacent West Bank aren’t recognized as Israeli land by most of the international community; Israel annexed East Jerusalem shortly after the Six Day War, while the remainder of the West Bank — where there are numerous Israeli settlements — remains under military administration..

Palestinians who live in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Huckabee said, should settle in “territory that [is] in the hands of Muslims, in the hands of Arabs,” as determined by the “international community.”

Huckabee appeared at the event with actor Jon Voight, the Tea Party’s favorite celebrity better known to most Israelis as Angelina Jolie’s father.

“And now you are here, this is your time, and you are doing what you should be doing, which is to prepare the next generations and to be the hope of the world that you are,” Voight said. “I love you all.”

  1. Just what makes Mike Huckabee the expert on this matter? And since when are oranges apples? How can you compare A democratic country like America to Palestine or Israel for that matter. Surely the situation that has long existed in the Middle East does not remotely compare with Main St. USA.
    Forcing the Palastinians to “live” in any area not chosen by them is the problem. They have every right to protect and defend their homeland as any of us do. Why is it nobody is ever willing to tell the Israelites to back off and stop trying to annex land that does not belong to them. I am sick and tired of everyone in this country “pussyfooting” around the issue here, plain and simple, Israel is a bully and a thug and has enjoyed immunity from the truth for far too long.
    I realize how important an ally they are in such an unstable part of the world, given how much we are hated over there, but maybe the old saying “Show me your friends and I’ll show you who you are” rings true in this situation.

  2. I second the above opinion….

  3. My question is this. Lets look back at the wars and simply imagine that Israel had lost the 6 day war. How much support do you believe would exist for giving the Jewish states back their lands or reestablishing the Jewish nation if it had fallen? These lands were taken when agressive states invaded Israel, the international community did nothing until Israel started winning. Every concession Israel makes is used against them as a way of bringing bombs, guns, and suicide bombers closer to their heartland. If giving it all back would solve the problems I would be all for it, but it will not. Arab doctrine calls for the ending of the Jewish state. Any land conceded will be used to create greater leverage to fufill that goal.
