Skip to comments.Romney: Palestinian truth-teller, again
Posted on 09/19/2012 3:06:53 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
With all the focus on what Mitt Romney said about Obama voters and dependents, during a secretly video-taped fundraising event, it is surprising to learn that the Republican presidential nominee had the right idea about foreign policy as well as domestic issues.
There is this three minute and 22 second video clip of Romney talking about peace between the Israeli and Palestinians that is a model of clarity.
Romney says essentially that there is little for the US to do about creating a new Palestinian state because the security problems that would be created for Israel as a result would be too imprudent and risky.
Romney explains that he is "torn" by the fact that "the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace."
Romney explains correctly that everywhere that territory has been ceded to the Palestinians (in Gaza) or in Lebanon, the Iranians have flooded the area with weapons, which are in turn pointed and used against Israel.
The border, Romney explains, "between Israel and the West Bank.....right next to Tel Aviv....the financial center of Israel....maybe seven miles....[to the other side] of the West Bank, of what would be this new Palestinian state... would either be Syria....or Jordan." Romney continued his analysis saying that the Iranians would want armanents in the new Palestinians state, and that the Israelis would not be able to live with that threat. But the Palestinians, Romney continued, would not be willing to allow the Israeli to police their own independent borders in order to prevent weapons from crossing into their country.

TRUTH BUMP TO THE TOP!
GO ROMNEY AND DO NOT BACK DOWN!
He needs to start talking like this everyday.
Then again, this might be the most magical reverse psychology on the msm evah!!!
The Dems and libs were stupid to release this snippet. I thought what Romney said was AWESOME! Those words he spoke should make every American Jew who loves Israel go all out for Romney. It should make Netanyahu come out and endorse him. Heck, the Romney people should use that in an ad in FL.
Completely agree with you.
About time he started sounding like Newt on this subject!
