Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat with Mike Huckabee.
A visit to the mayor’s office in the Jerusalem Municipality with the Huckabee mission enabled many questions to be asked. Helen Freedman asked about the illegal Arab building in Yerushalayim. The Mayor replied that there are more than 20,000 illegal Arab buildings in the city and that much of the problem stemmed from the pressure from Obama. Policies of demolishing Arab homes and building Jewish homes were frozen. He is hopeful that there will be different situation under Trump.
