Lots of people are talking about the United Nations right now because of the recent controversy over Obama and Israel. Mike Huckabee, who has always been a staunch supporter of Israel has a plan for the UN which sounds pretty good.
The Hill reports:
Huckabee: We should jackhammer the UN into the East River
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Tuesday called for the U.S. to rid itself of the United Nations, after the U.N. voted to censure Israel for settlement-building.
“I think we ought to get jackhammers and we ought to jackhammer the whole thing off, float it into the East River,” Huckabee told “Fox & Friends.”
“Ask anybody who would like to host it, to come pick it up, haul it off. And it will be a lot easier to park in Manhattan after we get rid of it.”
The U.N. Security Council on Friday voted 14-0 to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The U.S. had the ability to veto the resolution, but abstained from doing so.
The Obama administration has been harshly criticized by American lawmakers, including President-elect Donald Trump, as well as Israeli leaders for not blocking the vote.
Huckabee said the resolution was an attempt to force Israel into “a suicide pact.”
