Huckabee: UN Trying to Push Israel Into a 'Suicide Pact'

With its resolution on Israel, the United Nations is attempting to push Israel into "accepting borders that would essentially be a suicide pact," and the Obama administration was most likely behind the vote, former Gov. Mike Huckabee said Tuesday.

"Silence is agreement, and by the U.S. being silent and abstaining [from the vote], they did agree to it, and I think they helped orchestrate it," Huckabee, a strong advocate of Israel, told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

On Monday, Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer told CNN that there is "clear evidence" that President Barack Obama colluded with the United Nations on the vote, and that the evidence will be released after President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

Huckabee Tuesday said he does believe Israel will release the information and it will be "very embarrassing."

Meanwhile, Huckabee said the idea that Jerusalem should be divided is "nonsense," and talk of the disputed area being "occupied" is a misnomer.

"Jerusalem has been the capital for only one people in its entire history, dating back 4,000 years, and that's the Jews," said Huckabee. "There's never been a Palestinian capital or Arab capital in Jerusalem ever."

He said he would like Obama, who suggests "that the Western Wall, which is the one remaining part of the ancient temple, should be part of disputed territory, to visit Israel and go to the Palestinian territory.

"Pick up a map made by the Palestinians and look for Israel on the map," said Huckabee. "You know what you won't find? It's not on there. You know why? Because the Palestinians don't think Israel should exist. You can't make peace with people who don't even think you should be alive."

Huckabee told the Fox Business News' "Mornings with Maria" program, though, that he does not believe the vote will damage the United States' relationship with Israel, as it has been condemned by Democrats as well as Republicans.

However, he said if he was Obama, "I probably wouldn't plan a vacation to Tel Aviv any time soon," and he thinks the president's troubled relationship with Israel "forever damages his legacy."

"To embrace Iran, the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world, and to reject Israel the only democracy that increases in the Middle East, basically the only real true democracy on the African and Asian coast, this is what doesn't make sense," said Huckabee.

"The two-state solution that's been tossed about for years by both Republicans and Democrats, look, again, it's irrational nonsense. It's not going to happen. We need to abandon that policy. There are 57 Muslim nations in the world that occupy 100,000 times the land mass that Israel does, which is a land the size of New Jersey.

"If you want a two-state solution, find Arab Muslim country that would welcome the Palestinians, build a road there and let the Muslim nations pay for it."

Further, Huckabee told "Fox & Friends," the territory is not "occupied" by Israel, because it owns the land, with a "deed dated back to the time of Abraham."

"In modern times, it goes back to the 1920s, then they had to continue to fight for it after it was not delivered," said Huckabee. "Six million Jews were systematically slaughtered. Over 3.2 million Jews have gone back to Israel to live and establish their homeland."

And those people have to live somewhere, said Huckabee.

"These settlements are not tent cities," the former governor and presidential candidate said. "These are very established, well-built neighborhoods. I'll be there next week. Where they go, the desert blooms. It's a modern day miracle to see what has happened in Israel."

On Jan. 3-4, Huckabee will headline the "US-Israel Business Alliance" mission to Israel, according to Israel International News. The trip is led by the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce and its Executive Public Policy Committee, and will also feature a delegation of business leaders.

Huckabee on Tuesday said he'd like to do away with the United Nations altogether.

"We ought to get jackhammers and float it into the East River and ask anybody who like to host it to pick it up and haul it off," said Huckabee. "It will be a lot easier to park in Manhattan after we get rid of it."

Huckabee also commented on Obama's claims that he could have beaten Trump in the presidential election, saying the claims were an "insult to [Democratic nominee] Hillary Clinton."

"I mean, if I were Hillary Clinton, I would be livid that the president was making those statements," Huckabee said. "He went out there and was giving a full-throated support for Hillary and he couldn't push her over the top.

"For him to say that he would have won, I mean, how vain must a person be in order to say that I would have won the election? I think it's immaterial and, frankly, why would he say something like that?"
