Gingrich slammed for telling the truth

In an earlier post, I reported that Newt Gingrich had told the truth about the 'Palestinians' - that there ain't no such thing.

But Gingrich is being attacked for telling the truth - and not just by the White House. I expect attacks like this from Ron Paul. I don't expect them - and perhaps we should - from Mitt Romney.
Gingrich came under fire about his comment on Friday in an interview with the Jewish Channel in which he said: "I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs, and who were historically part of the Arab community."

"That's just stirring up trouble," Paul said. "This is how we get into so many messes. I think it just fails us on a little bit of diplomacy."

When Gingrich said he was speaking the truth, Romney said he was not a "bomb thrower."

"We're going to tell the truth. But we're not going to throw incendiary words into a place which is a boiling pot," he said.

Gingrich said he was simply doing what Ronald Reagan used to do, which was to have the courage to tell the truth no matter how unpleasant. "Reagan believed in the power of truth. I'm a Reaganite, I'm proud to be a Reaganite, I will tell the truth," he said.
Most of the rest of the article is about health care. But I'd bet that Bachmann and Santorum and the future of the Republican party - Marco Rubio and Allen West - would agree with Gingrich. The bottom line is that it's the truth. There is no such thing as a 'Palestinian people.' Golda Meir said it. Until 1991, Yitzchak Rabin said it. And the Arabs themselves said. The 'Palestinian people' are a lie, which Israeli governments desperately seeking peace have attempted to make into a reality. It's time to tell the truth.

Well, Romney is a leader of the LDS, so he might be a mite tetchey to claims that this or that is claim to peoplehood is "invented," and no less than the Palestinian "narrative" [fiction] Mormonism self-presents as a superseding replacement of Zion (though converting departed Jewish souls is probably an improvement over the Palestinian patent of killing Jews en masse to create departed souls)--that said, Joseph Smith: Palestinian! Brigham Young, Palestinian!! Moroni, spiritual author of the metal records of the Book of Morman, Palestinian!!!!
