According to Yahoo News, the Jerusalem Post reported that numerous members of Trump's transition team are confirming Huckabee's appointment as ambassador to Israel. The original story from the Jerusalem Post doesn't appear to still be online.

Under President Obama, relations with our ally Israel have been strained, but upon Trump's victory, Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu sent a very jubilant congratulatory video message to Trump and referred to him as "my friend."

Huckabee is a strong supporter of Israel and apologized this week after accusing liberal Jews of defacing a church in protest of Trump's victory.

Huckabee blasted a recent Unesco resolution that denied Jewish connections to Jerusalem and other holy sites, saying, “We rightly excoriate Holocaust deniers, so why do we offer money and support to an organization that is hardly any less anti-Semitic in its absurd denial of the Jewish people’s historic and religious heritage? It’s time for America once again to stand up forcefully beside our staunch ally, Israel. The last time we were silent in the face of attempts to erase Jews from the pages of history, it didn’t turn out well.”

Meanwhile, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich confirmed that he will note have a role in Trump's administration, according to McClatchy.
