GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has gotten himself into hot water with the Arab world, and with the Palestinian Authority (and international anti-Israel stooges). NEWT Gingrich has repeated a claim that Palestinians are an ''invented'' people with no clear right to their own state. The former Speaker of the House of Representatives had described the Middle East peace process as ''delusional'' in an interview with cable TV's Jewish Channel.
''Remember, there was no Palestine as a state,'' Mr Gingrich said. ''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. And they had a chance to go many places.'' (He must has read my letters)
"I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs, and who were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places, and for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s and it's tragic," he said.
In short, added Gingrich, the peace process between the Jewish State and the PA has been "delusional," and the effort by U.S. President Barack Obama and his administration to treat the PA the same as Israel is actually "favoring the terrorists."
Mr Gingrich's comments were widely condemned in the US as counterproductive, and prompted an angry response from Saeb Erekat, a senior Palestinian Authority official, who said they served only to ''increase the cycle of violence''. (Jew-bashers do not like it when the truth about Jewish rights to the land of Palestine and the Arab-Israel conflict are exposed by prominant non-Jews, as it is difficult to dismiss it as Zionist propaganda!)
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich’s remarks about Palestinian Authority Arabs were “unhelpful.” (Unhelpful to whom - Arab terrorists and Jew-haters? What Gingrich said was a rare expression of truth, which most politicians know but ignore or pretend it does not exist!)
But the 68-year-old Mr Gingrich stood by his remarks. ''These people (Arabs) are terrorists,'' he said, referring to Palestinian groups. ''Sometimes it's helpful to have a president of the United States who tells the truth.'' He also said the Hamas militant group, which controls the Gaza Strip, and the Palestinians' governing body, the Palestinian Authority, which controls the West Bank, represent "an enormous desire to destroy Israel."

Israeli officials squirmed in embarrassment over Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s ringing endorsement of Russia’s contested parliamentary elections as “free and democratic.” “Such praise is appalling and deeply embarrassing. These remarks in no way reflect our official position,” a senior government official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity. (Many top world diplomats have also expressed grave concerns over the outcome of the vote in Russia, which observers say was marred by widespread irregularities. But only in Israel was the Foreign Minister “embarrassed” by his own stuff. When will this self-defeating practice of the left infested bureaucracy end?)
Obama Blamed for Giving Iran Spy Drone
Gov. Rick Perry, a contender for the Republican nomination for US President, lambasted President Barack Obama for failing to keep a highly valued spy drone from falling into the hands of Iran's armed forces. The US military offered Obama different courses of action for retrieving the drone or destroying it when it came down on Iranian soil last week, but he rejected both options for fear that they would be seen as acts of war.

‘Concern’ is Attempt
The United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights has called on the Israeli government to amend its laws in order to ease the burden on fathers seeking full or partial custody of their children. At (another) special hearing in Geneva last month, the committee expressed concern that fathers embroiled in custody disputes here are not always treated fairly under the Capacity and Guardianship Law. (Yes, laws must be changed, butthis is interference into the internal politics of a sovereign country! Has this committee made a similar resolution regarding the rights of mothers in Muslim/Arab countries? What about lack of religious freedom, and abuse of human rights and freedom of speech by most of those Islamic dictatorships? No ‘concerns’!)
Sneaky Diplomacy Instead of Peace Process
A slick little attempt by the PA to gain statehood recognition - at least on paper - in a listing at a United Nations convention on climate change, held in Durban, was stymied. The PA delegation had been listed on the Saturday program as representing the State of Palestine, rather than that of an observer entity. Israeli diplomats immediately took steps to have the error corrected. (The UN is very eager to cooperate with PA in allowing too many of such ‘errors’ to slip into its programs)
Quote of the Week:
“A Christian gets bullied and verbally abused by Muslims in the workplace, and the Christian worker gets fired. These Muslims …do not belong in a free society. Yet we still allow massive Muslim immigration. When is enough? When are westerners going to stop being frightened and intimidated and start exerting their rights within their own nations?” - Laura

Christians are being sold out by Church - Jews were sold out long time ago! Officialdom of the Church is driven by anti-Semitism and policy of appeasement of Islamic terror!
