Official Green Light: Permission Granted to Build Settlements in East Jerusalem

This announcement was made by the world’s greatest living expert in international relations — Mike Huckabee (R—Out Of His League).

The Old Testament fanatic and 2012 presidential candidate was being hosted by the Jerusalem Reclamation Project, an organization that’s pushing for the maximum number of Jewish settlers per square inch in Arabic regions of Jerusalem. Jon Voight was there also.

What, Jon Voight??? Uh oh, time for the usual conservative pantytwist: Tell them there Hollywood elitists to stay out of politics and stick to movie-makin'.

Huckabee told a group of Jewish settlers:

“I cannot imagine, as an American, being told I could not live in certain places in America because I was Christian, or because I was white, or because I spoke English.”

He also told them East Jerusalem is “Israel’s eternal capital” and said they have a right to build settlements anywhere they want in “the place that God gave them.”

Well, that settles that. Case closed.

In other news, a third grader who flunked arithmetic walked into a meeting of college math professors and told them their calculus equation was wrong.

Bravo, great post!

Huckabee is most likely letting his jonesing for Armageddon get the best of him. Like many others who want to hasten Armageddon (maybe because deep down inside they somehow doubt Biblical prophecy, and are desperate to make things happen to prove it is true?), he will encourage any actions by Israel that will get the Arab world more angry and agitated.

Just the kind of guy America wants in the White House... well... maybe about 20% of America, that is.

Maybe if he likes the idea so much of Israel pushing ahead with the settlements, Huckabee should go live in one of them himself. Then the rest of us could all be "left behind" here, and doing better without him. He should take Jon Voight (and other elitist Hollywood conservatives) with him. 8-)

""I think we ought to be more concerned about Iran building bombs than Israelis building bedrooms," Huckabee said"

What a buffoon. Maybe he ought to go to Iran and bring that up with them.

Judging by the maps Jim over at Average American Patriot has posted in the past there's not much left for Israel to steal.

Snave: It would be nice if Huckabee would just go to his eternal fairyland without taking the rest of the world with him. But he could take Jon Voight and them other Hollywood elitists with him while he's at it :)

The entire Middle East is much too volatile right now for simpleminded demagogues to go marching in there and stir things up even more.

MRM: He should either go to Iran or join the military. If he isn't qualified because of his age or fitness level, there ought to still be a civilian service-related job he could handle. If his money is where his mouth is, he should be honored to clean bathrooms or shuffle papers for a cause he's devoted to.

Huckabee's clearly out for the Jewish vote, by way of Israel. Wonder if he's got some prank in mind like the one Reagan worked with the Iranians.

Oh, and let's not forget, if the Huckster can get a flare-up of hostilities going between the Israelis and Palestinians, it will mean good things for his campaign coffers. U.S. defense industries need the business, since it looks as though Obama might cut our defense budget.

SW: Yup, the Jewish vote and the millions of phony "patriots" who have absolutely no grasp of foreign affairs other than "American Exceptionalism." And no, they certainly can't allow cuts to the Pentagon budget. If it takes another Middle Eastern blowup, then so be it.

“I cannot imagine, as an American, being told I could not live in certain places in America because I was Christian, or because I was white, or because I spoke English.”
However, one can imagine being an American and being told that one could not live in certain places in America because one was Jewish or Muslim, or because one was black, or brown, or yellow, or because one spoke English with a Spanish accent or... well you get my drift. What was it Jesus said about treating the poorest and most vulnerable? "Get your hands off me you damn, dirty ape."
