Crazy comes in many forms. First, James Carville was invited to advise Ghani’s presidential campaign in Afghanistan. Now Huckabee’s been invited to promote Israeli expansion into Palestinian territory by a group of far-right religious settlers. I’m just wondering: are these two guys culturally/ideologically sensible per the ins and outs of these regions?
Huckabee has stated that he supports Israeli expansion and settlement building in the West Bank. He is also opposed to the establishment of a Palestinian state. Huckabee actually cares?! Or does he believe such a move will appeal to American Jewish sentiment with something up his sleeve for 2012? In any case, Huckabee is the honored guest of the Ateret Cohanim, a right-wing religious group planning twenty apartment projects in East Jerusalem. Obama has vented his disapproval of Israeli expansion, causing the far-right to protest with banners reading, “Barak Hussein Obama: Anti-Semitic, Jew-Hater.” So yes, crazy does, indeed, come in many forms.
