Huckabee says no to the two state solution. Gee. Wonder why.

Even Bibi Netanyahu is willing to consider the creation of a Palestinian State on the West Bank, but crazed evangelical Mike Huckabee thinks this is a bad idea:

Former US presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee said Tuesday there is no room for a Palestinian state "in the middle of the Jewish homeland" and that Israel should be able to build settlements wherever it wants.

Huckabee's opposition to a Palestinian state puts him at odds with the accepted wisdom of both Democrats and Republicans - and to some degree even with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has come out in favor of a demilitarized Palestinian state

Though, Huckabee's real reason for staking out a position far to the right of the prime minister and any mainstream Republican is not reported, my hunch is its rapture related.
