Mike Huckabee meets with members of European Parliament

While in Israel this morning Mike Huckabee met with members of European parliament from Austria, Germany, Sweden, and Belgium.

Yesterday Mike Huckabee was a guest of honor at the groundbreaking ceremony for building in Jerusalem.

"I cannot imagine, as an American, being told I could not live in certain places in America because I was Christian, or because I was white, or because I spoke English," he said.

Yesterday Deputy Minister for Galilee and Negev Development Ayoub Kara (Likud) told visiting former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, a likely Republican US presidential candidate, that Obama needed to understand that “supporting the masses carrying out a revolution in Egypt is like support for the Muslim Brotherhood which is likely to take Mubarak’s place.”

Kara told Huckabee he was “disappointed by Obama’s turning his back” on Mubarak.

“It needs to be understood that if the Egyptian government will fall, the Muslim Brotherhood will take its place, and that will cause even worse problems not only for the Middle East, but for the whole world,” he said.

Eitan Haber, who was a top aide to Yitzhak Rabin, stated:

“Our conclusion in Israel needs to be that the man sitting in the White House is liable to ‘sell’ us over night.

The thought that the US might not stand by our side in the day of need causes chills. God help us.”

While in the Mount of Olives for a cornerstone laying ceremony, Huckabee said:

"The essence of freedom, the very heart of it, is self-determination and self-direction. And so today we dedicate this place not only as a place for people to live, but people to live free. Many people across the world live, but the real inner quest in every heart is to live free."

"I join you today," Huckabee told those gathered at the ceremony, "in celebrating this place as a place for people who will not merely live, but live free, as a testament to their commitment of making Israel a place where there is always a home for the Jewish people."
