Mike Huckabee has developed a whole new pander for the lunatic ultra-Zionists
When asked about a Palestinian state, Gov. 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.
No, this doesn’t really tell us anything about Mike Huckabee that we didn’t already know: he doesn’t know much, but he has more knowledge than he does scruple.
But it’s campaign season, and there’s going to be pressure on other Republicans to say “Yea” or “Nay” to this unspeakable idea. Will Rudy allow himself to be out-pandered?
So there’s a premium on getting some people who are otherwise largely uncritical supporters of Israeli policy to denounce the idea. All we need is someone to say, “Hey, we’re Jews! We don’t do ethnic cleansing.”
