'Palestinians' seethe over Romney fundraiser comments
Israel Matzav ^ | 7/30/12 | Carl in Jerusalem

Posted on 07/30/2012 1:21:36 PM PDT by Nachum

At a Jerusalem fundraiser on Monday, Republican candidate Mitt Romney told his Jewish donors exactly what he thinks of the 'Palestinians' (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

"As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality," the Republican presidential candidate told about 40 wealthy donors who ate breakfast at the luxurious King David Hotel.

Romney said some economic histories have theorized that "culture makes all the difference."

"And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things," Romney said, citing an innovative business climate, the Jewish history of thriving in difficult circumstances and the "hand of providence." He said similar disparity exists between neighboring countries, like Mexico and the United States.

The 'Palestinians' are seething in response.

"It is a racist statement and this man doesn't realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation," said Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Do the Palestinians even have a GDP? I thought all their money came as aid from guilt-addled western nations, like Norway?

If they are seething, Romney must be doing something right. Bob

“They’re always seething.”

their seething is at it’s highest point when there is nothing to seethe about...then it transforms into the less violent type of seething known as “the street.”

It’s not like the Palestinian Americans were going to vote for him in droves anyway...

Yeah, they did. And they left intact operating businesses behind them, including greenhouses which grew fruit, vegetables and flowers for export. The first thing the Pallies did was to destroy the greenhouses.

They got more satisfaction out of smashing up something built by Jooze than they would have obtained by simply operating them as profitable, hard currency earning businesses.

Sort of like ObaMao's attitude toward capitalism and small business.

That’s the way to call a spade a spade. Keep it up.

If the Palestinians had behaved as civilized rational people since 1948 they would be wealthy and sucessful now beyond measure. They brought this on themselves by falling for the propaganda of the Muzzies.

I am suprised that the Mexican president has not cried “racism” yet.

I’ve been saying the same thing that Mitt said for years....Some cultures are simply inferior. The culture of the palestinians, arabs and [fill in the blank here] are inferior. These cultures produce little if anything and create more problems for the world.
