Well, that's another one he has correct.

Has Newt ever expressed an opinion on whether pizza tastes delicious?

They’re actually Philistines, but they can’t be called that, for it may suggest who actually owns the land.

Man Newt, you’re really poking the stick in the cage now. It’s true, but that takes guts.

Now...is he willing to say this about hispanics?

“Man Newt, you’re really poking the stick in the cage now. It’s true, but that takes guts.”

Agreed. Maybe that’s what is called for in these times. Someone unafraid of telling the truth. Unfortunately, it’s still too early to tell if he’s being bold, or reckless.

I’ve gotta give him props for saying it like it is. I’m frickin’ sick of these turds having the pity and welfare support of the world.

Ever notice that Israelis all live in “settlements” and the Pallies all live in “refugee camps”? These terms have been burned into their heads for the last 40 years. The media has no idea that they’re brainwashed.

"(The GroundZero Mosque) cleared its final hurdle ….
developers plan to build the $100 million center which will include a mosque.
Since its incipient stages in July 2009, when a Muslim-run real-estate development
company purchased the damaged, vacant building and land where the new center
will be built, the project has sparked controversy and debate.
.... the tattered building that was bought by the Muslim real estate company had
been owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, a company Romney founded in 1984.

So it’s OK if his company can profit off the sale of the land ."


“Bain Capital, has cut checks totaling $90,000 to Romney’s operation. “

Newt is planting the seeds to change the paradigm. Right now the Palestinians are entitle to a state and Israel, US and the rest of the world must coward to them and tolerate their temper tantrums. If the world would say NO, but in you behave and act like grown-ups, we might help you, there would be surprising results. Who else took this approach??? Oh ya REAGAN with the Soviets.

You know, I don't give a cr@p about anyone over there, really. I would like a candidate to focus on the U.S. and restoring OUR way of life. I would like the U.S. media to uncover and make public what crimes are being committed by the current administration and by all politicians.

They’re actually Philistines,

No, they are not. Palestine is a corruption of the word Philistine, but the "Palestinians" are Arabs who came to the region long after the Philistines were gone. They are not decendants of the ancient Philistines.

Note the reporter dances around the core question of whether Newt is correct. Instead the reporter searches for those who may have made the statement before Newt.

Around 100 A.D. the Roman Emperor Hadrian renamed Israel to Palestine, based on the Philistines, the old adversaries of the Jews to further infuriate them. The other people in Israel were various Gentiles. The Arab invasion did not come for centuries so there were no Muslims there.

Newt is the only one that understands EVERY aspect of these troubling times in the world. I don’t know if he was hit on the head, new-found en-lightening with his religion or what, but he is spot on with all major issues on a global scale.

If Newt is talking about Bolton for SOS what would the rest of his Admin. look like? Pretty damn good in my eyes.

I’m just praying that Newt understands that he is in the last quarter of his life and that he wants to “do right” for our republic. I believe he is at the point in his life that he (through his ego) wants to be mentioned with the likes of: Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Reagan. He very may with what I am hearing.

Not all Palestinians are Muslims. I find it abominable that Evangelicals throw the Palestinian Christians under the bus because they belong to the wrong sect.

There has been a deafening silence about the forced exodus of Palestinian Christians from the Holy Land.

Okay, now what? We’ve redefined the Palestinian people out of existence as a separate entity. What comes next? Convince the Palestinians that they don’t really exist? Turn them all into Israeli citizens? Israel already sees a demographic problem with Arab population growth. Convince the Jordanians and Egyptians to accept them as their citizens? Good luck with that one.
