Chris Christie calls Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria 'occupied territories'
Israel Matzav ^ | 3/30/14 | Carl in Jerusalem

Posted on 03/30/2014 9:45:36 AM PDT by Nachum

Christie apologized for the gaffe.

Not long after his speech, Christie met with Adelson privately in the casino mogul’s office in the Venetian hotel and casino, which hosted the RJC meeting.

The source told POLITICO that Christie “clarified in the strongest terms possible that his remarks today were not meant to be a statement of policy.”

Instead, the source said, Christie made clear “that he misspoke when he referred to the ‘occupied territories.’ And he conveyed that he is an unwavering friend and committed supporter of Israel, and was sorry for any confusion that came across as a result of the misstatement.”

Adelson accepted Christie’s explanation, the source said.

...

Before the meeting, Adelson ally Morton Klein, president of the hawkish Zionist Organization of America, had confronted Christie about his use of the term, telling POLITICO he explained to the New Jersey governor that “at minimum you should call it disputed territories.”

What is a “gaffe”?

Inadvertently saying what you really think.

He’s got those Dem talking points down.

Remember when he was being pimped here as ‘conservative’?

The only ones “occupying” Judea and Samaria are the Arabs who don’t belong there. Muslims occupied Israel for 1,400 years before it was liberated. There is no such thing as a Palestinian. There are 22 existing Arab states and one more is certainly not needed in any case.

They were occupied territories from 1948-1967.

I remember a documentary about constructing the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas years ago - Adelson acted like a complete a-hole, wanting everyone to kiss his ring. Now the pubbies are lining up for his moolah. Makes me sick.

Freudian slip.

This guy ain't ready for prime time. He sure doesn't know what's going on....bridge lanes or "occupied territory".

His Fatty Arbuckle persona, his tough-guy facade coupled with earnest boyish-charm can only take him so far.....and the bloom is fast coming off the rose when he opens his mouth.

The significance of Bridgegate, however extensive, pales in comparison to Christie’s deeply troubling relationships with terrorist-sympathizers and supporters in the New Jersey Muslim community. He has sheltered known Islamists from law enforcement, excused their hateful rhetoric, ignored threats to national security, criticized legitimate law enforcement activities, and dismissed constitutional rights — all to pander to a Muslim constituency.

I’m amazed at the people who trust Jordan on Israel.

Just the wars of 1948, 1967 and 1973 ought to tell the story well-enough.

If we elect this buffoon Christie, what will the change be in domestic and foreign policy? Has he demonstrated any leadership or has he been running for office, like Obama has, during his entire two terms?

Christie just keeps on with his media-pleasing pleas for Republicans to quit devouring each other, while I can think of no faster way for Republicans to completely collapse ahead of Election Day 2016 than witnessing this guy winning the nomination.

His complete ignorance or plain deceit with regard to the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism, these preaching statements he continues to make with regard to Islam in general, are at least circumstantial evidence of his having been "touched," as they say in New Jersey, by local or, perhaps, international Islamic brokers.

There's no questioning Chris is a genuine "hungry political animal," but this isn't Big League sports, the National vs. the American League, etc.

I won't support Republicans just because they aren't Democrats. I'll support Republicans who don't profess illusions about Israel and Islam, who support the Constitution on it's face, who stick to the letter of the Law.

I doubt if Scott will run, he's got so much more to do here in WI. In any case, the big government establishment Repbs will put up another Dole, McCain, Romney and lose. How ‘bout a Romney/McCain ticket just to make things obvious.

Either Obizmo will find a way to run again, or Hitlery will win.

After his ‘’occupied territories’’ gaffe, Chris Christie’s presidential hopes are not necessarily dead if he can make up the loss of pro-Israel Jewish funding with anti-Israel Muslim funding.

I would trust Jordan over all other neighboring countries because of who the present King of Jordan is. Jordy, as we knew him at Deerfield Academy, is a great guy and very pro-western. He has handled a very difficult task of keeping the radical Palestinian supporters out of his country, while not appearing too Western/Isreal friendly to his predominantly Muslim countrymen. Past wars mean nothing when you have someone like Jordy in control. Notice that the Arab spring wasn’t even a hiccup in Jordan.

He’s still muslim and they still have their books; and their books tell them they’ll kill all the Jews at the Last Hour.

And his father was directly involved in 3 wars against Israel; I still say that’s gotta rub off.

Sure, he doesn’t come off like an Iranian cleric.

~~~ He has handled a very difficult task of keeping the radical Palestinian supporters out of his country~~~

Probably because his father killed 8,000 to 10,000 of them in September, 1970.

So, after they (Palis) formed Black September they killed ... who else ... Jews at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

I’d say he probably shares a common distrust of Palestinians. It’s certain no Arab nation wants them.

Adelson is a fanatical supporter of open borders and amnesty, for America, not Israel of course. His behavior and statements seem like they are calculated to play up to every negative Jewish stereotype.

He will never give up.

Apparently his attorneys got $650 per hour to clear him of Bridgegate, to a total of $1 million for the taxpayers of New Jersey (Bob Ingles - Gannett Press). Add to that the special election he required for U.S. Senator (in which he refused to campaign for a REAL Republican Steve Lonegan), PLUS the money the DemocRats are spending for THEIR Bridgegate “investigation”, and Christie is a regular tax dollar sewer for the people of New Jersey.

SOME CONSERVATIVE!

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has demonstrated again and again that his brains are buried deep in his derriere. There is little between his ears. He doesn’t understand the child abuse he’s blessed in forbidding therapy to New Jersey young people seeking an escape from sexual orientation dysphoria, a developmental mental illness. He hugs the anti-family, anti-working-man Barack Hussein Obama just because there was a storm and the tide was up.

Now he shows that on foreign affairs he has does nothing but skim the headlines of Islamist propaganda sheets. He is not gubernatorial material after all. He certainly is no more presidential material than Barack Hussein Obama, the biggest charlatan in U.S. history. Christie’s self-centered and criminal retaliation against the drivers of New York and New Jersey shows that he is far from harmless in his childishness.

Christie should be sentenced to five years steady work as a toll collector on 12 hour shifts on the George Washington Bridge. He claims his staff did the traffic blocking for his office, not for him and did so without telling him! Did he hire such people or did someone else? He’s known them all his adult life. Mr. Portly should sit on a low civil service rung of the Port Authority ladder with no decision-making power.
