Newt Gingrich discusses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict…
"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, and were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places."
An "invented Palestinian people." Well put. We, as an American people — with our long and storied two-hundred-(and-some-change)-year history — need a leader who's not afraid to take strong stands and point out historical truisms like that.
And besides, everybody knows that there's no more proof for the existence of Palestinians than there is for shoe elves, mermaids or people who are genuinely excited for a Gingrich presidency.
