MISSION

Mike Huckabee, Live From Israel?

Is Mike Huckabee planning a broadcast in East Jerusalem this weekend? New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind told Haaretz that the Fox News host and former presidential hopeful would tape an episode of his show from a disputed Jewish settlement in the Palestinian territory. Dozens of U.S. activists, he said, would participate in the mission to show their allegiance to Irving Moskowitz, a supporter of the disputed Israeli construction project. But a spokesperson for Fox News said that Hikind—who is an activist in right-wing Jewish causes—had been misinformed and that Huckabee has no plans of broadcasting from the area in East Jerusalem.
