Huckabee Rips Obama's 'Hostile' Relations With Israel

(Fox News)

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, said to be under consideration for Donald Trump's ambassador to Israel, blasted President Barack Obama's "hostile" relations with the Jewish nation during a Monday appearance on Fox News.

"The Obama administration has been hostile towards Israel, hostile," Huckabee told the news network. "It's not that they have just been indifferent, but they have spent more time condemning Israel for building bedrooms in Judea and Samaria than they have for trying to condemn Iran for attempting to build bombs. This is outrageous.

"They have constantly harangued Israel, which is our best friend in the Middle East, the most stabilizing force in the Middle East and it is an irrational position that the Obama administration has taken.

"So I am sure not just the prime minister, but citizens around Israel are celebrating that the end of this very hostile regime of Barack Obama is coming to an end."

And he said the Palestinians must recognize the right of Israel to exist.

"We'll never have a peace in the Middle East as long as there is an unwillingness of the Palestinians to acknowledge the right of Israel to exist," Huckabee said noting that Israel is surrounded by enemies.

"They're surrounded by mortal enemies who would love to destroy them. And those enemies are not hours away from an attack, they're minutes.

"So I have to believe that if Donald Trump just shows up and recognizes the difference between good and evil, Israel is in a better place and frankly so is the rest of the world."

Just weeks ago, Huckabee denied reports he was named ambassador to Israel, according to The Hill.

"I'm happy doing what I'm doing," he said then. "My job is to listen to the president-elect. It's his job to make decisions. I did not campaign for him because I was needing work."
