From the River to the Sea

I oppose all radical clerics who advocate a "one-state" solution in Israel. Mike Huckabee is no exception.

As Jon Chait observes, Huckabee's objection in principle to the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank is a position not even taken by the Likud Party (indeed, it's not even taken by Avigdor Lieberman's extreme-right Yisrael Beiteinu party). Virtually the only folks who share Huckabee's views are those who expressly advocate Israel's dissolution, or the fringe-of-the-fringe settlers who likewise have expressly stated that they care not whether Israel lives or dies. Just so we know his bedmates.
