Romney: Palestinians don't want two-state solution, they want to eliminate Israel
Haaretz ^ | 1/26/12 | Natasha Mozgavaya

Posted on 01/26/2012 9:46:04 PM PST by Nachum

Governor Mitt Romney says the Palestinians are not interested in a two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, rather are interested in the illumination of the State of Israel. The leading candidate in the race to become the Republican candidate for presidency was prompted by a question posed by a Palestinian-American Republican Thursday night at a CNN Sponsored by debate in Jacksonville, Florida. "Israelis would be happy to have a two-state solution. It's the Palestinians who don't want a two-state solution; they want to eliminate the state of Israel,” Romney said.

Well, he’s right about that. But that’s no reason to elect him. Ron Paul is right about drastically reducing the size of guvmint.

Obams is right about... uhhh... gimme a moment.

Had to give the “mayonnaise sandwich on white bread” credit for this response.

But, no OTHER credit. He’s slimy.

he’s right about that...

He is as much "right" about that as he is on repealing zer()care. He says emphatically, "ON MY FIRST DAY IN OFFICE I'M REPEALING OBAMACARE". [he can say that 10,000 times, and then a guy like Norm Coleman negates it in one interview].

Just the same as what Romeny says about the palee's.

Well, ok. He’s right for the moment on that. Which begs the question about how he’s been in the past. Based upon his other positions (such as abortion), I would not be willing to venture anything further than “he’s right about that... at this moment in time... if that means anything”.

Probably Mitch Daniels. The guy who could be imposed over both Romney and Newt.

True on that point. I don’t think any of them understand, though, that the two-state solution is a false peace leading to yet another final solution attempt.

Before people start rushing to give him credit on being right about something, realize what kind of standard we are talking about here.

Do the "palestinians" want to destroy Israel, yes, its so obvious that pretty much anyone from the left wing to the right wing can realize it, especially when so many "palestinians" say it on their own TV.

The difference is, liberals know it, but deny it, while republicans know it, and state it, Obama knows it, he just wants it to happen.

Romney deserves about as much credit for stating this fact, as a Obama should get if he stated that, he does in fact, have 2 daughters and a shrill for a wife.

Are we going to start giving Romney credit for every single simple fact that he is right about ? If he says there are 50 states, will freepers say, well, he is right about that, that is true, and then cheer him on for knowing something that Obama got wrong ?

In the next debate, watch Romney state that Washington D.C. is in fact the capitol of the United States, and someone say, well, you know, that is true....Of course its true, stating a basic well known fact, isn't something to be impressed by, the fact that some folks are impressed by that, is frankly depressing.

I don't think there is anyone that doesn't know that, just people who either admit it, or deny it (and wish for it to happen, like Obama).

Ron Paul is right about drastically reducing the size of guvmint.

Based on what I've seen, he's the only one serious about it. Of course this is exactly why the insiders from both parties have no desire to see someone like him elected.

How easy to answer that-he has been copying Newt's answers for months. Oh, moderator, I want to add in more answers-( I want to do like Newt says on the Dream Act) Last night, he even began with words as I believe.

I WAS surprised he actually had the nerve to give that answer to a Palestinian and I could see the wheels turning in his head - “what should I do - he’s Palestinian but he’s a Republican - hmmm...”

So I grudgingly give him some credit and for being pretty emphatic at that.

Well, he can forget THAT guy’s vote - LOL

The old saying is true - even a broken clock is right twice a day.

But yeah, credit where credit is due, he did answer it well.

He heard Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich say something like this, and heard the applause they got. And get off his back about it! He didn’t say he was *against* wiping Israel off the map. Geez.

Thanks Nachum.
