A New{t} President of America

The next round of fighting, one that showcases Mr. Newt, may prove quite interesting.

Palestinian leaders said on Saturday U.S. Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had invited more conflict in the Middle East by calling the Palestinians an "invented" people who want to destroy Israel.
Saeb Erekat, a senior Palestinian official, described his comments in an interview as "despicable." Hanan Ashrawi, another top official, said Gingrich's "very racist comments" showed he was "incapable of holding public office."
"This is the lowest point of thinking anyone can reach," Erekat, a close advisor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, told Reuters. Such comments served only to "increase the cycle of violence," he added.
"What is the cause of violence, war in this region? Denial, denying people their religion, their existence, and now he is denying our existence," said Erekat, for years a leading figure in peace talks aimed at the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
In an interview on Friday with the Jewish Channel, Gingrich predictably sided with Israel in its conflict with the Palestinians, who are seeking a state of their own on land occupied by Israel in a 1967 war.
But the former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives departed from official U.S. policy that respects the Palestinians as a people deserving of their own state based on negotiations with Israel.
"Remember, there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire" until the early 20th century, said Gingrich, who has risen to the top of Republican polls with voting to start early next year to pick a nominee to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama in the November 2012 election.
"I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs, and who were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places, and for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s, and it's tragic," he said.
There are around 11 million Palestinians around the world, Palestinian officials say. They include refugees and their descendants who left or were forced to flee their homes during the 1948 war that led to the creation of Israel. More than 4 million of them live in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The 1948 war erupted after Arab states rejected a U.N. plan that would have divided British mandate-ruled Palestine into Arab and Jewish states.
Gingrich along with other Republican candidates are seeking to attract Jewish support by vowing to bolster U.S. ties with Israel if elected.
He said both the Hamas militant group, which controls the Gaza Strip, and the Palestinian Authority, which receives financial backing from the United States, represent "an enormous desire to destroy Israel."
While Hamas remains committed to armed "resistance" and will not recognize Israel, the Palestinian Authority based in Ramallah states that only peaceful means can deliver Palestinian statehood and its security forces cooperate with Israel.
Ashrawi, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation Executive Committee, said Gingrich's remarks harked back to days when the Palestinians' existence as a people was denied by Israelis such as Golda Meir, prime minister from 1969 to 1974.
"It is certainly regressive," she said. "This is certainly an invitation to further conflict rather than any contribution to peace."
"This proves that in the hysterical atmosphere of American elections, people lose all touch with reality and make not just irresponsible and dangerous statements, but also very racist comments that betray not just their own ignorance but an unforgivable bias," she said.
Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman in Gaza, said the Gingrich remarks "were grave comments that represented an incitement for ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians."

Maybe 2013 will be more exciting than 2012...after all the Zohar brings in 5773, as the year of Moshiach Ben David in association with wars with Yishmael...will Newt make enough waves?

I just cringe at the logic of these "so called" Palestinians who claim that there are some 11 million "so called" Palestinians worldwide emanating from the 1948 war of independence and the creation of Medinat Yisrael.

But then again, if we employ the same logic, but this time as truthful reality, then how many descendants do we have from Beit Yisrael that were forced to leave after the Assyrian conquest and how many do we have from Beit Yehudah that were forced to leave after the Roman conquest and the formation of the fallacious state "Palestina" some 2000 years ago ???

I am confident that HaShem, being the judge of history will use these hypocritical remarks in his legal prosecution against these lying Arab pretenders and their corrupt Western left wing advocates.

All historical transcripts will be used as evidence.
It will be thrown out of the Heavenly Court.
Costs will be awarded to the true defendants and the land will be returned to its rightful owners and their descendants who will number as the stars in the Heavens and the sands of the shoreline.

The verdict is in......and frankly,the name of the next US President is irrelevant.

This from Prof Paul Eidelberg, the world's top Orthodox Jewish political scientist:


Mr. Newt Gingrich has displayed great courage and moral clarity by calling the "Palestinians" an "invented" people. He also displayed political wisdom by adding that "even-handed" diplomacy.has favored the Arabs vis-a-vis Israel. Truth has at last entered the domain of statecraft

It has taken 35 years, but at last, a learned American statesman has said what Israeli prime ministers lacked the wherewithal to say--to tell the truth conveyed above--despite countless articles declaring the truth and published in Israel as well as in America by the Foundation for Constitutional Democracy, whose goals and principles have been incorporated into the Israel-America Research Institute ("
