Newt is Right About The "Palestinians" ^ | 12/10/2011 | AARON GOLDSTEIN

Posted on 12/10/2011 2:21:47 PM PST by TBBT

Newt Gingrich is drawing fire for arguing that Palestinians are an "invented" people. In an interview with The Jewish Channel, Gingrich said, "Remember there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs, and were historically part of the Arab community."

Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erakat described Gingrich's comment as "the most racist statement I've ever seen." So not only do the Palestinians want a state but now they want to be a race unto themselves, too?

Two of Mitt Romney's surrogates also criticized Gingrich's comments although not for their accuracy. Mary Kramer, a former Iowa State Senator who later served as Ambassador to Barbados said, "I'm not sure that statement gets us any closer to accomplishing an agenda." Meanwhile, Iowa State Representative Renee Schulte, a co-chair of Romney's Iowa campagin, said, "Governor Romney is much more discplined in his approach and much more thoughtful about the things he says." Perhaps Schulte was referring to the time when Romney said the U.S. could learn about diplomacy from Hezbollah. But I digress.

Fox News is quickly morphing into another leftscum enemedia network at the behest of Soros. Ailes said they were moving to the “center” recently. Well, to leftscum, Marx is the center.

I pray Newt and Mitt both have good security.

They are now targets of Islamo Nazis and Obama Nazis. The MSM will probably start encouraging these groups to get violent.

Well, there is such a thing as a Palestinian, but only in reference to people who lived in a specific region. There never was, of course, a nation or a kingdom known as Palestine.

It’s akin to saying folks from the central Great Lakes region of the United States, extended out a few states, are Midwesterners. That is true; they are. But that does not mean Midwesterners are a national entity, or a race, or anything other than people who live in a certain geographic area.

And Palestine, as a geographic area, was, historically, the area that comprised the areas of present day southern Lebanon, southwest Syria; Jordan, Israel, and Gaza. As a racial people, they are all Semitic. They are all from the same genetic stock, but different tribes.

So, perhaps a contemporary analogy of the “Palestininan Issue” would be as if Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota picked a fight with Illinois, and said Illinois is illegitimate, and must be destroyed. As a racial people they are...well, they are pretty much anything and everything. As a geographic people, though, they are all Midwesterners.

Too bad Newt didn’t just come on out and call them Fakestinians.

Newt is absolutely right on this.

A rabbi once said, “When God chose Israel, so did Satan.”

From pro-Islamic world leaders to biblical, illiterate church members, the anti-Semitic lie that says there is a Palestinian nation and a Palestinian people is erroneously touted worldwide.

Basic history:

Jews have scriptural, archaeological, and language ties to Israel, Palestinians have none.

Jerusalem is found over 600 times in the Hebrew Old Testament... Jerusalem is not found in the Koran once.

God made an ETERNAL covenant with Israel through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, etc. He gave them the land from Egypt’s Nile river (South) to Lebanon (North), and everything from the Mediterranean Sea (West) to the Euphrates River (East). This includes modern Israel, Jordan, and parts of Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. (Genesis 15:18 & Joshua 1:4) Yet, Israel currently possesses only a fraction of the land God gave them, because He said the nations “divided up my land,” for which they will be severely judged. (Joel 3:2)

Today’s Palestinians claim to be descendants of the ancient Canaanites, who were the original inhabitants of the Promised Land, yet, God commanded Israel to destroy all of the Canaanites out of the land.

So-called Palestinians are in fact, Arab refugees from previous wars against Israel and Jordan ... Palestinians were ousted by Jordan in 1971.

In 135 AD, Roman Emperor Hadrian, renamed Israel, “Palestina” (later shortened to Palestine ) to eradicate its Jewish connection, and for centuries, Bible maps and Christian literature have reflected this Roman invention, but God never called Israel, Palestine.

Prior to the birth of Israel in 1948, both Jews and Arabs in the land were called, “Palestinians.”

Gingrich has made the cardinal p.c. sin of telling the truth. Once the libs declare something to be true, i.e. the Jews kicked the “Palestinians” out of their country, then it has to true. Except it never was true.

There is no better proof of this than the fact that the Muslims claimed Mohammed (p!ss be upon him!) "ascended into heaven" at the very site of the Old Hebrew Temple and built their "Dome of the Rock" there to contaminate the sacred Jewish site.

A classic example of why Newt has to be and will be the GOP nominee. He's probably the only one of the candidates that even know this is the truth, and he's certainly the only one willing to say it.

He's playing 3-dimensional chess, while the others are still trying to figure out the rules to checkers.

Can't wait for the Gingrich-Obama debates. When Newt is the challenger in a political race he is absolutely unmerciful. He's playing nice with the other GOP candidates, but it will be "gloves off" time against Obama. Newt will be unrelenting on offense, continually pounding Obama on his record.

Someone want to tell Newt that?

If that is the position a Gingrich administration wants to take then I'm fine with it. It would put to end the farce that there is a peace process in the area for us to meddle in. Israel will do what it feels it needs to do. The non-Palestinians will do what they think they need to do. And nothing we say or do could ever change that.
