Washington (CNN)Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Wednesday rejected the notion that the West Bank is occupied territory insisting instead that the largely Palestinian-populated territory is part of Israel.Huckabee's statements -- during a trip to Israel -- fly in the face of international law and longstanding U.S. policy, which consider the West Bank as occupied territory and the construction of additional settlements in that territory illegal."I don't see it as occupied," Huckabee said Wednesday during a press conference in Jerusalem. "That makes it appear as if someone is illegally taking land. I don't see it that way."Huckabee also suggested a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict -- another hallmark of successive U.S. administrations -- is "unrealistic and unworkable."He said he has never supported a two-state solution that would see Israelis removed from their homes in settlements in the West Bank, but refused to say how he would deal with the millions of Palestinians living in the region without a two-state solution.
Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee called the Iran deal "idiotic," and likened it to events of the Holocaust, saying that President Barack Obama will ultimately "take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."
