Iran threat unites Israel with Arab nations, says US presidential hopeful


Citizens United And Americans For Prosperity Foundation Host Leading Conservatives For Freedom SummitFormer Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told New Hampshire Republicans on Saturday that President Barack Obama’s policies have so failed the Middle East that they have aligned Israel with other regional nations because of fears of a nuclear Iran.

“Now, the Israelis are in a greater alliance with the Saudis, Jordanians, and Egyptians than they are with the United States — because those countries at least have the good sense to know you don’t trust the Iranians,” Huckabee told several hundred people at the Republican Leadership Summit in Nashua.

Huckabee, 59, who said Friday that he would announce his 2016 presidential plans on May 5, was among 19 presidential hopefuls and announced candidates who spoke during the two-day event, sponsored by the New Hampshire Republican Party.

“I pray our next president will have the good sense to know we don’t trust the Iranians, but we can trust our friends, the Israelis — and we can trust the leadership of other countries in the Middle East, who recognize that you cannot create peace when you chant ‘Death to America’ in the streets of your cities,” Huckabee said.

The former governor, who responded to an audience member’s question on Israel, said that he could see an Islamic State terrorist camp in Syria within two miles of where he stood on a recent visit to the Golan Heights.

“In the distance, we could hear at least 10 explosions of rockets and shells going off in the civil war of Syria,” Huckabee said. “We were safe where we were, and the reason we were was because Israel understands what it is to defend its borders and recognizes that it does have a right to defend itself and its people.”

He said that the idea of a two-state solution with Israel and the Palestinians was “the nuttiest thing I’ve ever heard.

“One of those parties believes the other one should not exist,” added Huckabee, who said he first visited Israel 42 years ago. “Let’s quit pretending there is such a thing in that particular country.

“In the land of Judea and Samaria, there should not be a question as to whether or not that is going to belong to Israel — because it does belong to Israel.”

More broadly, Huckabee called for “the Republican Party to start acting like the Republican Party” by standing up to Obama — whom he dubbed a “lawless president who ignores the Constitution” with his executive amnesty orders.

He also called for congressional term limits and a “fair” tax that is paid only at the point of purchase because “the IRS has become a criminal enterprise, and we need to get rid of it.”

Huckabee also slammed the Obama administration’s nuclear framework deal with Tehran.

“The fact that the Middle East is in extraordinary trouble — and that our president thinks we can sit down and make a deal with the Iranians, is nonsense,” he said. “They’ve never made a deal they’ve kept, never.”

    “because those countries at least have the good sense to know you don’t trust the Iranians,”

    and they also have a dumb sense not to know that you don’t trust the Israelis who have a hatred for all Arabs. dumb a$$ fool’s

    1. acctually , latest polls show that American support for Israel is only getting stronger and is at it’s all time’s high….don’t let Obama and the delutional one confuse you , it’s only two people …this guy huckabee knows the truth.
      it’s all in the latest Gallup survey from feburary:

      pay attention to the support among republicans, to the numbers of democrats unhappy with Obama’s forign policy, pay attention to the trust level towards Iran Vs Israel.
      you’ll find the truth there ..if you really care to know it 😉

        Right, Dorn … geeezzzz
        “Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Feb. 8-11, 2015, with a random sample of 837 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
        Each sample of national adults includes a minimum quota of 50% cellphone respondents and 50% landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas by time zone within region. Landline and cellular telephone numbers are selected using random-digit-dial methods.”

        Yah … wow, eh? Did YOU have the ‘right profile’??
        Glad I have ‘Caller ID’ … if I don’t see a name, or know the number, it doesn’t get answered. Come to my door and you’ll get an opinion … even about ‘polls’.

        1. coommon…..
          it’s the same poll every year , same amount of people ,same old dumb questions. the difference from year to year IS the difference in public opinion cause it has the same baseline over and over again.
