Huckabee added, "The West Bank is Israel's. It just is. Because the Second Coming of Christ, my Lord and Savior, cannot happen until Israel is whole. I don't know what international law is and I don't care."
A campaign staffer approached a smiling Huckabee and gently shooed him away from the press and all of the functioning recording equipment they brought with them.
The Huckabee campaign announced the former governor would return only after he received assurances there would be no men with nets waiting for him at the airport.
