David Corn hit vid part 2: Romney claims Palestinians not interested in peace
You can read the AP report at link below. I’m not linking the sleazebags at Mother Jones. If this is all they have, it’s going to end up as a big snore, with only the media and GOP establishment thinking it’s the end of the world.
Romney says that Palestinians are “committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel” and that the prospects for a two-state solution to Mideast peace were dim.
“You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem.and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it,” Romney said.
The remarks are contained in a clip posted Tuesday on the website of the magazine Mother Jones. The magazine said the video is from a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser in Boca Raton, Fla., on May 17.
In the latest clip, Romney is asked about the “Palestinian problem.” He gives a detailed, though somewhat rambling response, and says, “the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace,” and “the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”
