GOP Race 2012: Huckabee vs. Egyptian People


Speaking in Israel, presumptive 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is unnerved by Egyptian unrest, as per the Jerusalem Post:

Huckabee, on a private visit to Israel – his 13th to the country – said to the Knesset's Immigration and Absorption Committee that "the events of the past few days in Egypt have created a very tenuous situation, not just for Egypt, not just for the Middle East, but for the entire world, and the destabilization of that nation has the potential of cascading across the globe."

Haaretz reports on Israel's public silence, and backroom diplomatic manuevers to discourage criticism of the Mubarek regime.
