"Huckabee: ‘I felt more fear in American cities’ than in Israel."

Mike Huckabee if he was worried “about security in the violence-plagued country.” Huckabee responded by saying that he has “no fear to go to Israel” because he has “felt more fear in American cities“:

“I have no fear to go to Israel,” Huckabee said before boarding a plane at Kennedy Airport.

I felt more fear in American cities. I can walk down the streets of Tel Aviv at night without a problem. But I, of course, have the knowledge of which places not to go at night, just like any other city in America.”

Digg It!
