WHO WOULD LAUGH IF PRESIDENT HUCKABEE DENIED MANHATTAN THE FRANCHISE?:

In Jerusalem, Huckabee says West Bank not occupied, two-state solution unworkable (Julie Wiener, 8/19/15, JTA) 

Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee said Israel has as much right to the West Bank as the United States has to Manhattan.

Speaking at a press conference at Jerusalem's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on Wednesday, the former Arkansas governor, who gave a speech in the West Bank settlement Shiloh on Tuesday said, according to The Guardian: "I don't see it as occupied, that makes it appear as if someone is illegally taking land. I don't see it that way."

He added: "In America, we have about a 400-year relationship to Manhattan. It would be as if I came and said we need to end our occupation of Manhattan. I'm pretty sure most Americans would find that laughable."

The one-state solution removes Israel from the West and from the brotherhood of democracies.
