Huckabee: Evangelicals support Israel more than Jews

Former Republican presidential nomination says that support for Israel is strongest among Christians


 

Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and 2008 candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, says that American Jews just don’t support the Jewish state the way Christians do. Speaking to the Christian Broadcasting Network about his Evangelical Christian beliefs and his recent trip to Israel, Huckabee said: “One of the things I find most interesting is that generally Evangelicals are so much more supportive of Israel than the American Jewish community.” He explained that American Jews are split over issues like the division of Jerusalem and the building of settlements, while conservative Christians offer unified, total support for the premise that “there ought to be one city. It ought to be a Jewish state. And it ought to be secure.” He then went on to wonder why Jews don’t realize that conservative Evangelicals are “the best friends they’ve got.” Because there’s no better token of friendship than telling Jews that they’re not supportive enough of Israel.

  1. That sounds about right.

  2. All the better to bring about the end of the world.

    Save us Jebus.

  3. Most conservative pro Israel Jews would probably agre, Dennis Prager for example. I also agree, might not have been politically wise to say, but he is certainly correct.

  4. unfortunately, very true. but reason is that Evangelists believe that the Messiah will return when all Jews return to their homeland. a self serving kind of support but greatly appreciated by Jews.
