Mike Huckabee: Obama Wrong to Pressure Israel

Once and possibly future US presidential candidate Mike Huckabee took the Obama administration’s Middle East policy to task on Tuesday, saying, “One of the disturbing things” over the past year has been Washington putting all the pressure on Israel, and none on the Palestinians.

“What possible incentive do the Palestinians have to come to the table and make concessions, because the only direct policy from the administration has been to order Israel to freeze not some, but all, the settlements. That seems a little one sided,” Huckabee told The Jerusalem Post.
