Who needs Iowa? Huckabee to hold fund-raiser in West Bank settlement

While Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is on jury duty in New York, and Marco Rubio and John Kasich are stumping at the Iowa State Fair, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee will travel to Israel Tuesday and hold an afternoon fund-raiser in the West Bank settlement of Shiloh.

The event – a rare one for US presidential candidates – was arranged by Miami-based Simon Falic, who with his brothers owns Duty Free Americas Inc., the largest duty-free operator in the US.

Falic, who has financially supported a number of projects in the Shiloh area, is also a generous contributor to pro-Israel Republican and Democratic politicians. In addition, he has contributed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political campaigns.
