Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee told CBN News why he believes Israelis are more on edge than ever before.
"My fear is that the United States policy on Israel has so dramatically shifted," Huckabee said. "This is a policy that is inexplicable, very dangerous, very naïve and it has the Israelis quite unnerved."
"I've been going there since 1973 and I've never seen the mood quite like it is," he said. "They feel that thanks to the Obama administration, they are completely on their own."
