Sometimes one has too many things to say he doesn’t know where to start. This is exactly what is happening to me right now. After watching Newt Gingrich’s answer to Abraham Hassan’s question on TV I decided to find the video and post it on my blog. If what he said didn’t shock you I am not sure what will. Luckily, I found his video and Mitt Romney’s as well. In both these videos, both answered a question by a Palestinian American about peace in the Middle East.
HASSAN: Abraham Hassan from Jacksonville, Florida. How would a Republican administration help bring peace to Palestine and Israel when most candidates barely recognize the existence of Palestine or its people? As a Palestinian American Republican I’m here to tell you we do exist.
Few facts I learned about those two Republican candidates:
Fact #1: Hassan’s reference was to Newt Gingrich’s claim last month that the Palestinians are an “invented people.”
Fact #2: Both didn’t mention the noun “Palestine.”
Fact #3: Both mentioned rocket attacks by Palestinians only and no mention to Israel’s continues killing of civilians for the past 60 years.
Fact #4: Both agreed that president Obama is not working for the sake of Israel.
Fact #5: When speaking about Palestenians the tone is authorative and commanding. When Speaking about Israel the tone changes to using words such as ‘friend’ and ‘ally.’
Now, I will leave you to watch and learn some more facts about how peace in the Middle East is not something to look for to happen in the near future.
