1. Gingrich and Romney kicked the liberals and the ignorant
Devorah   (01.27.12)
square in the teeth with these truths that are in total opposition to Obama's camp. I wonder how many Americans were surprised to hear THE TRUTH. And what are they going to do about it come November?
2. It's about time someone grew some
Steven Wilson ,   Anchorage, Alaska   (01.27.12)
jewels and called a toad a toad. You will notice CNN put this Immigrant Palestinian in a role of asking a embarrass Gingrich. I'm sure the American Indians want to ask why the Palestinian is on their land too.
3. Gingrich for President ! Gingrich the voice of the truth
David   (01.27.12)
4. Palestinian People Statement
Jim ,   Boerne, Texas   (01.27.12)
If you know the Bible at all, Israel will never be eliminated by anyone! Period! It's going to get real nasty over there at some point in the future, but, never will they be eliminated. They are Gods chosen people and we or anyone should go against that promise......

Based on what you wrote, you have other things to worry about. Shoo. Be about your country's business.

Marc ,   Nice, France   (01.27.12)
Nice to hear, loud & clear, that : 1-Obama's administration "threw Israel under the bus", and 2-The Palis are an artifact. As always, our enemies will do their best against us, and at last, as always, the hidden truth will emerge... Nice to hear. Please repeat, and share.
9. If ONLY Our Leaders had had his courage
GodBlessGingrich ,   Jerusalem Israel   (01.27.12)
Whether he gets elected or not the Jewish people should be eternally greatful for his courage as a high profile world leader who risked his career to tell the truth and as a result millions around the world may just start invetigating his words and discover they have been taken for a ride for years,
10. relativity
Michael ,   Haifa   (01.27.12)
These two idiotic jokers make Netanyahu & Co. look like sissies.
11. to NR 1

You may call them ignorant but let say in public in Arabic that it is not true (and live another day).
13. America's trouble: calling Saudis as allies. [end]
BUTSeriously ,   Sydney   (01.27.12)
14. Imagine....just imagine,Gingrich President
Nora Tel Aviv   (01.27.12)
Imagine the American Embassy in Jerusalem surrounded by special forces with sharp shooters, antitank devices and explosive sensing dogs and robots.Imagine the post-Arab spring (Sic) relationships with a Gingrich governent. Imagine the EU`s real politic advices to the US. Imagine the dear Russia-China-Iran trio`s manipulations. Mr. Gingrich sure has the the truth in his mouth, but does he have the politico-military courage?
15. This what Abu Mazan said!
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (01.27.12)
He quite clearly stated that Palestine would be "Jew Free" (Judenrein). When you consider that the Palestinians, including all their "affiliates" like Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, call for the destruction of Israel, then the statements by Romney and Gingrich and correct.
A peaceful two-state solution can only happen if the two parties recognize each others right to exist. Unfortunately the Hamas want to annihilate Israel, not a good start. If they want or ever take their own peoples happiness, future and well-being seriously they must change. this can go on forever such a shame and waste of precious life. I moved from my home in Israel with my three children because of rocket fire from Gaza. Rocket fire that goes on all the time, its not even news worthy for the rest of the world, until that is, when Israel retaliates then its a BIG story. What country wouldn't retaliate to rocket fire on civilian areas of their country.
17. Validity of Palestinians
Zooey ,   Toledo, OHIO, USA   (01.27.12)
The term Palestine …is Greek for Philistine. Professor Maxime Rodinson, Professor of History at the Sorbonne University in Paris, and he is Jewish, stated in 1968: “The Arab population of Palestine was native in all the senses of the word, and their roots in Palestine can be traced back at least forty centuries.” The British historian, H.G. Wells, responding to the Balfour Declaration, stated: “If it is proper to ‘reconstitute’ a Jewish state, which has not existed for two thousand years, why not go back another thousand years and reconstitute the Canaanite state? The Canaanites, unlike the Jews, are still there.”
18. #14 Yes we can imagine
TC   (01.27.12)
And we don't have a problem with that either.
19. relativiy
jame ,   dublin, ireland   (01.27.12)
The Truth does Hurt..
20. #11 shoosh!
Tia ,   Italy   (01.27.12)
People like you just bring more shame on my country. Why don't you just leave and go to GAZA...for good??
21. Neither one will beat Obama in 2012.
StevieT ,   USA   (01.27.12)
So prepare for plan B, whatever that is. I guess it should include, toning down the rhetoric against the Democrats who happen to care just as much about Israel, but for all the right reasons.
22. Embarrasing really
r cummings ,   uk   (01.27.12)
to see these two old blokes scrabbling to be the first to take it up the back passage for Israel. Who would ever have thought an American presidential candidate would be bending over to serve a law-breaking foreign power steal more land?
23. #14 nora
solomon ,   bklyn   (01.27.12)
The problem is that most Presidents during the campaign have promised to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. After they were in office, nothing happened. This is one promise that I don’t pay attention to anymore. The bag of salt that goes with it is way too big.
24. #11 ale
solomon ,   bklyn   (01.27.12)
You obviously have no idea what is legal or illegal. You listen to people but don't read anything that might contradict you (heaven forbid). You are ignorant; your attitude will bring disaster.
25. #17 zooey
solomon ,   bklyn   (01.27.12)
The term Palestine is Greek for Philistine because the Philistines were Greek. After the Jews were exiled by the Romans, they named the area Palestine to eradicate any trace of the Jews. They didn't need to eradicate the traces of the arabs/ philistines/ canaanites because there weren't any. HG Wells was a great science fiction writer. He wrote one book of condensed world history and you treat him as a sage historian? His comments about the canaanites show his bent towards fiction.
26. Obama/Clinton Fully Aware PA Muslims WantTo Eliminate Israel
Linda Rivera ,   New York, USA   (01.27.12)
The Obama/Clinton administration are EAGER to have that occur. STOP THE PLANNED SECOND HOLOCAUST! Not one inch of Jewish land to barbaric enemies bent on Jewish genocide!
27. Zooey #17
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (01.27.12)
Pure undeniable BULLSHIT. Over 80% of the original 'Palestinian refugees' lived in the Mandate territory for less than 2 years. That is according to the British and the UN in 1948, which is why UNRWA had to create a new definition of the term refugee contrary to the Geneva Convention because otherwise the Arabs would not be considered refugees. During the first census in the early 19th century the Ottoman Empire noted that over 80% of the Muslim population was born elsewhere. Your 'professor' is full of shit.
28. Have you all no sechel or shame
Avramele   (01.27.12)
Israel will win it's next war. But at what price? Are we all enablers of a tragedy yet to occur? Can we really rule over millions against their will? The republicans pander to our worst delusions. Shabbat shalom
29. #22 cummings
Maurice ,   Montreal   (01.27.12)
The only people who will "bend over" are you and of your ilk to "get it" big time when you finally realize that Israel is here to stay and flourish whether antisemites like you want it or not. Eat your heart out!
30. Gingrich and Romney are an embarassment to America
christianpalestinian ,   new york city   (01.27.12)
America has become the laughing stock of the entire world because of ignorant and out of touch candidates talking about subjects they know nothing about. Shameful.
