Former Arkansas Governor Huckabee goes to Israel once or twice a year–and has for forty years. Therefore, he knows a great deal about the people and politics of Israel and her neighbors.
This week, Gov. Huckabee traveled to Israel in order to address the Knesset, meet with government officials and discuss issues with the media and citizens alike. Yesterday he sat down with i24 news diplomatic correspondent Tal Shalev and discussed many issues of concern for Israel.
You can probably guess the reason for mentioning this here at Layman.org. In the midst of the interview, the topic of PCUSA divestment emerged.
Huckabee: “For the Presbyterian church to engage in something like this is indefensible and abominable. And it’s based on lies, misunderstanding, or maybe as one person said, “disunderstanding”, because it’s misinformation that is intentional.”
I wish we could have had more of the Governor’s perspective at the General Assembly last week in Detroit.
