Would President Huckabee advocate forced relocation of Palestinians?

TPM notes the comments of Fox News "star" - and leading Republican presidential wannabe - Mike Huckabee to a crowd of Israelis at a cornerstone-laying ceremony for (an illegal) new structure in East Jerusalem:

Palestinians who live in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Huckabee said, should settle in "territory that [is] in the hands of Muslims, in the hands of Arabs," as determined by the "international community."

Come election season, if Huckabee seems to be coming within even sniffing distance of the White House, the US's already frayed ties with most Middle Eastern countries are going to be shredded even further.
