While visiting Jerusalem this week, former US presidential candidate Mike Huckabee told Israelis that "we are in a remarkable time right now." Asserting that the only explanation for Israel's rebirth and achievements is God, he said that a two state solution is a "diplomatic fantasy." What's more, he told legislators here, its insistence that Jerusalem be divided "is like asking Solomon to cut the baby in half."
Days before Israelis embrace Yom Kippur, the biblical Day of Repentance, an Islamic terrorist guns down a grandmother and young police officer before he is shot and killed. As Fatah calls for mourning the murderer, Hamas hands out candy celebrating him while Islamic Jihad pledges, "attacks will continue."
