Words: Huckabee feels we should support Israel as a strategic ally, but treat Palestinians “respectfully”. He tends to be non-interventionist. “It’s the job of the US to protect our citizens, to make us free and us safe, and to create an enviable kind of government and system that everybody else will want. … It’s the job of the US to protect our citizens, to make us free and us safe, and to create an enviable kind of government and system that everybody else will want.”
Actions: No record.
Updates: Although Gov. Huckabee came under fire from his rivals (primarily Gov. Romney) for saying the Bush administration suffered from a bunker mentality, his foreign policy is not easily distinguished from the President’s.
For many observers, Gov. Huckabee’s grasp of foreign affairs seems dangerously amateurish – he missed the NIE on Iran entirely and his only response to the assassination of Benazir Bhutto was to promote the wall along the Mexican border as a means of preventing illegal Pakistanis from entering the country.
Nonetheless, he is a committed Christian Zionist, who, like his supporters in the Left Behind franchise, sees Armageddon and the destruction of Israel as the prelude to the rapture and, presumably the end of the world.
