Romney angered the Palestinians? Aren't the Palestinians already pretty
angry? They've been so angry for so long that they have collectively
decided to not participate in any roadmap for peace with Israel. All the
Palestinians have to do is acknowledge Israel and commit to living in peace
along Israel, and instead they choose to continue their vows of violence.
Israel has been voluntarily giving land--Israel even moved out of settlements at
a moment when Palestinians were leaning towards peace.Romney may not
understand the history of that volatile part of the world. But nobody does.
Everybody seems to be remembering their own version of history and not move
"The statement reflects a clear racist spirit," said Palestinian Labor
Minister Ahmed Majdalani.============= No so much a
racist, but more like an out-of-touch snobbish, spoiled rich-kid elitist.
Let's see, Romney ticks off the Palestinians (and the Media) by showing his
support for Israel.Again, this makes it pretty difficult to
determine who to vote for, doesn't it?
funny that Romeny's supporters on this thread show the same lack of
understanding of the realities of the middle east that he does. I dare say it is
maybe slightly more complex then you would care to make it sound Ousic and yet
another reminder that Romney is not ready to be on the world stage necessary to
be POTUS, so yes it does make it more clear who we should be voting for.
"...Romney told an audience of affluent Jewish donors — including
gambling magnate Sheldon Adelson,...".Romney as thankful
spokesperson, for main donor Adelson, a gambling magnate."...Romney said, proceeding to badly flub the economic output numbers on
both sides...".As Conservative icon Charles K. said, if only
Mitt would stop talking."...said Palestinian Labor Minister
Ahmed Majdalani. "If Romney came here to rally Israeli and Jewish support in
the U.S. election, he can do that without insulting the Palestinian
people....".No he can't. Insults seem to be Romney's
latest calling card."..."There are 57 Muslim and Arab
countries here and...Romney, with no knowledge of the region,... history and
culture,...gives...statements, which will only serve as ammunition in the hands
of extremists in this region, Erekat said."...".Romney
giving statements serving as ammunition to extremists."..."We need the U.S. as an honest broker for peace,...said Alon Liel,
a former senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official. "It's not enough
being a friend. If we don't have the honest broker, we don't have
peace. There are no signs that Romney understands it."...".There are no signs that Romney understands.Not good...Not good, at
I don't expect any pro-Palestine individual to ever vote for a Republican,
let alone a Mormon. So all of the anger vetted in the comments can be taken with
a grain of salt. There is no wisdom in our continuing to fund a state that
cheered on 9/11. They hated America then, and continue today--even after all the
billions of dollars spent.
The Palestinians danced in the streets on 9 11 when their extremist brothers
attacked America. It is easy enough to verify the YouTube videos. For those
with a short memory Yasser Arafat tried to down play their celebrations.While the Palestinians were dancing in the streets the Israelis were
mourning our loss with us. Maybe Romney is smarter than the liberal appeasers
give him credit for.
@riflemanAnd did it ever occur to you that the people on the streets may
not be be representative of the views of all plantains and/or that even though
those dancing on the streets displayed very poor behaviors that they may
actually have some valid complaints and arguments in other areas? that maybe you
should not lump Palestinians into one gross character of a brief display of poor
behaviors? You have shown poor behavior many times should we automatically
disqualify you and your point of view?

that Mitt is NOT the one to choose. It shows that, in one more area, he would
be an absolute disaster. Anyone would be better . . . even my dog.
Re: George Bronx, NY"And did it ever occur to you that the people on

on You Tube and then draw your own conclusions. I see no need to appease those
who took delight in our sorrow on that tragic day.
Don't trust the AP for accurate reporting.
Re: Furry1993 Clearfield, UT"Let's see, Romney ticks off the
Palestinians (and the Media) by showing his support for Israel."The vast majority of Americans support Israel over the Palestinians in the
Middle East. If Romney wants to tick of the people who laughed with joy the day
their friends destroyed the Twin Trade Towers and bombed the USS Cole it
won't hurt him at the ballot box in November.
I'm not trying to spark a fire, really. But what foreign experience did
Obama have when he was elected? Where Romney is now is where Obama was when he
was running for office the first time. Neither men were terribly impressive at
that point in their run.
Remember the mob going after Zimmerman, because of inaccurate reporting from the
press? Palestinians, probably don't even know who Romney is.
