Recently, Huckabee expressed in one of his speeches that: “Anybody who is going to Israel should go to see the Friends of Zion Museum. It is just remarkable and is getting so much buzz in Israel and abroad.”
After his remarks, Huckabee came to experience the interactive FOZ museum tour to learn firsthand about the long history of friendship and cooperation between non-Jewish people of all religions and the Jewish nation over the last 200 years, including during the Holocaust and throughout the reformation of the state of Israel.
Dr. Mike D. Evans, founder of the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem, was very pleased to hear the remarks that Huckabee had about the museum. On his visit, Dr. Evans hosted the American politician and presented him with an award for his support of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
Mike Huckabee joins many prominent political, religious, business, entertainment and sports figures who champion the museum’s value and impact. During the museum’s first year, the museum hosted tens of thousands of people from around the world, from school students to a Nobel Laureate, and from senior statesmen and stateswomen to NBA basketball stars.

The Friends of Zion (FOZ) Museum was established with the vision of serving as a bridge, enabling people from around the world to join the scores of people throughout history who have supported the people, the promise, and the State of Israel.
