Most people agree that Palestinians deserve to live in freedom and peace with their Jewish neighbors. Not Mike Huckabee. The former governor of Arkansas wants Palestinians moved – somewhere else.
In comments widely reported in the international media, Huckabee said that Israeli Jews should be able to live anywhere throughout the biblical Land of Israel — an area that includes the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
But what about the Palestinians who already live there?
“There are vast amounts of territory that are in the hands of Muslims, in the hands of Arabs. Maybe the international community can come together and accommodate.”
Many of the Palestinians who live in the West Bank and Gaza were already displaced during the founding of Israel. Now Mr. Huckabee thinks they should be moved again.
This fits the definition of ethnic cleansing. Tell Mr. Huckabee that you find his proposals reprehensible.
