Skip to comments.Palestinians attack Gingrich comment on 'invented' people (Terrorists can't handle the truth...)

Senior Palestinian leaders on Saturday strongly criticized comments by Republican presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich that the Palestinians are an "invented" people, calling the comments ignorant and racist.
Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat said the Gingrich remark was "the most racist statement I've ever seen." Erakat, who has negotiated in talks with Israel and the United States, said the remarks show "how really despicable things can get" in American politics.
"Such thinking should be an alarm and concern for the world," Erakat said.
Gingrich made the comments in an interview that aired Friday with The Jewish Channel, a U.S. cable channel.
"I believe that the Jewish people have the right to have a state," Gingrich said in the interview. "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, who are historically part of the Arab community."

Newt needs to hire these “senior Palestinian leaders” to do his campaign ads. This alone is going to get him a huge jump in the polls. IMHO.
The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism.
For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

Oh my goodness, gracious!
Wasn’t Nobel Peace Prize winner/Murdering Palestinian terrorist, Mohammed Yasser Abdel Rahman Abdel Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa al-Husseini, aka Yasser Arafat, born in Cairo, Egypt?
Eventually they became nothing more than tax slaves to that empire ~ which impoverished them, destroyed their higher culture, and left them in an unenviable degenerate state.
They were finally liberated by The West in WWI (and to some degree before that in earlier French and British forays into the region). President Truman laid down the law to both the French and British that they had to get out of the Middle East.
He even reversed the earlier Roman destruction of the autonomous state of Israel ~
All things were replaced where they had been.
There's an old saying ~ beggars can't be choosers. It appears to not have a counterpart in Arabic ~ but it's still true. Google Translate says that it could be: يمكن أن المتسولين لا يكون اخيار
The same Yasser Arafat who died from AIDS?
Heh heh heh.
Gingrich struck a nerve. I guess the rag-tag squatter settlement of terrorist jordanians and egyptians on Israal’s borders for the purpose of squeezing the jews out of existence does’t like to be called what it is.
May I recommend Hell?
So Palistinian is a RACE now? Why not call Gingerich a homophobe too, just for good measure?
Seems muslims have learned well from socialist, marxist liberals...The race card is always trump.
Well, that will come in short order, I’m sure. After all, he converted to Catholicism; so, he must of done that because he hates gays. Why else?

If something is a “TRUTH” of history, and it’s EASILY proven who “invented” it, not only was Gingrich’s remark not stupid, it indicates to the electorate that the jig is up and that the way he would handle the Israeli/Palestinian “question” would be just the opposite of the phony dog and pony show that’s been going on over there since Arafat.
He made a political calculation by saying it -—(just like he did when he said he’s make John Bolton his Secretary of State http://hotair.com/archives/2011/12/07/gingrich-ill-make-john-bolton-secretary-of-state-update-newt-up-big-in-ia-sc-fl-in-new-cnn-polls/ which is another indication of how he would “handle” the Middleast)-—, and is prepared to defend it, you can be sure. I would LOVE to see him put the establishment ‘s candidate (Romney) on the spot and make him deny that, along with the “truth” about who and what Obama is all about, which the establishment FEARS TO TOUCH with a 10-foot pole.

Ill tell you this. Whoever in this field takes it to Obama the straightest and the hardest and the most direct, is whos gonna win. Theyre gonna have to take it to Obama. This isnt a pussy-foot around type of election. This is not, Oh, weve got to worry about what theyre gonna say about us, weve got to worry about PR, about charges of racism. Somebodys got to be willing to take it to Obama. Its going to be about him and four more years of this stuff and well see if theres anybody in this field willing to do that. ~ Rush Limbaugh - March 25th, 2011

I have a feeling that Newt will say another so-called “stupid” thing, like: “Obama is a Communist”
GO NEWT! Let the chips fall where they may.
What if we end up in Hell?
Plenty of Islamic terrorists are/were self-avowed "Muslim socialists", most notably Arafat, Saddam (actually all Ba'athists including Assad), Gaddafi, and Khomeini of course . . . not to mention that much terrorism came from the Marxist left originally (the Bolsheviks, the IRA, ad nauseam).

Don’t worry about it, they will be on a lower ring.
Can someone please show me which part of Newt's statement referred to the Arabs who call themselves "Palestinians" by their skin color, or other physical attributes? I love how these Mooselimb savages can redefine "racist" as having nothing to do with race, and CNN drools along.
They might as well call themselves a “race” because they’re sure not a “people”.
How can there be a Palestinian state is there is no such thing as a Palestinian?
How can “Palestines” get miffed when they don’t exist?
Besides their future home, Hell, they had a home in Jordan. Until Jordan felt threatened and kicked them and Arafat out. It's in Jordan's best interest to help Israel survive. Jordan has the friendlier "palestinians" (a political entity, not a race).
They seem to prefer a degenerate state, especially if they can destroy the Jews.
He’s correct again ... they are “invented.” What’s the “hoopla” all about? A man states a fact and CNN can’t handle it?
If the American people favor Gingrich's stand here (demonstrated by rising approval numbers in the polls) he is going to capture the Republican presidential nomination and defeat the corrupt, America-hating Obama. If Americans buy the PC bilge and reject Gingrich's speaking the truth about the fabricated 'Palestinian question', we're screwed and RINO Romney will probably be victorious and either lose to Obama or defeat him and give us more of the same, only watered down. We'll soon find out.
Before WWI, Egypt was no longer under Turkish control (rather under British), Libya was under Italy, Tunisia and Algeria were under France, and Morocco was divided between France and Spain. Much of the Arabian peninsula was not under effective Ottoman control.
Mehmet Ali, whose family ruled Egypt until 1952, was of Albanian descent.
North Africa achieved independence later than Mesopotamia and the Arabian peninsula due to the involvement of the French and British.
Truman's quick recognition of Israel was helpful, but he didn't create the state--it came into being through the efforts of its citizens.
