Republican Mike Huckabee Slams Two-State Option in Israel
August 18, 2009 - 4:58 AM<br />
Huckabee says that establishing a Palestinian state in "the middle of the Jewish homeland" would be "unrealistic." He spoke to reporters on Tuesday.
A far-right group of religious nationalists is hosting Huckabee on a three-day tour of some of the most contentious hotspots in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
These include a West Bank settlement outpost that even Israel's hardline government considers illegal and an east Jerusalem housing project that Washington has demanded be halted.
Huckabee is considered a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012.
