Former Arkansas governor and presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says the US has taken too harsh a stance against Israel on the issue of settlements. Huckabee said Monday the US should not "be telling Jewish people in Israel where they should and should not live." Huckabee made the comment Monday while visiting Jewish enclaves in east Jerusalem. Affiliated with the conservative wing of the Republican Party, Huckabee has been touted as a possible candidate in 2012. The US administration is pressuring Israel to stop building settlements on lands the Palestinians claim for a future state, including east Jerusalem. Israel says east Jerusalem will remain part of its capital and insists some settlement construction must continue.
