Eventually we get down to it. Always easy to find the core belief that explains why an almost-dead campaign 2 months ago is suddenly leading the pack. Now Newt is affirming Joan Peters fraudulent thesis ; the Palestinians are an invented people. Golda Meir would be happy to know a GOP candidate validated her famous claim "that there is no such thing as a Palestinian". Amazingly, the only sane position in this piece is made by Martin Indyk, former US Ambassador to Israel (even though he is Australian). Weird, is it not, how the US candidate comes across more pro-Israel than the Israelis themselves. All for the throne. 80 ethics charges chased him out of office. His bank account fattened by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. 40 Million from the insurance companies while he lobbied for the individual mandate in health insurance. Total sellout to AIPAC on Israel and Iran. Why is all of this so unsurprising? Because it happens every election cycle.
