Just before boarding a plane for a two-day trip to Israel, a reporter asked former Arkansas Gov. 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.”
