Huckabee: Trump, Netanyahu Bond Evident in Relationships

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have had a close friendship for years, and now there is a "new relationship" between Israel and countries like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Tuesday.

"The question about the Palestinians is up to the Palestinians," said Huckabee. "If they're willing to stop the incitement, and naming streets and parks after terrorists, and encouraging kids and even the school curriculum to kill Jews, there is a chance for peace," Huckabee told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program.

"That's where it has to start."

There must be a "clear understanding" concerning Jerusalem, as "it's the undisputed ancestral capital of the Jewish people, and it will have to remain that way," Huckabee continued. "If there is an acceptance of that, there could be peace."

It was significant that Netanyahu was at the United Nations for Trump's first address to the General Assembly, said Huckabee, and shows the depth of their friendship.

"After eight years of a very shaky relationship between Israel and the Obama administration, I think it is incredibly powerful and it sends a message to the whole world and especially to all of those folks at the UN that the United States and Israel are joined at the hip," said Huckabee. "I think that's a very powerful visual message that people will see."
