Video: Newt Gingrich in 2007: Israel to blame for 'Palestinian suffering'

Oh dear....

Get a load of this video from @NewtGingrich on the Charlie Rose show in 2007 in which he blames Israel for 'Palestinian suffering' ('Israel has to bear the burden...).

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Yechezkel Gordon via Twitter).

So will Newt own up to it? Will he disavow it?

Why is it always the Jews fault they cannot make their enemies more Jew-friendly?? It's effing outrageous!! So clearly he is just saying there is no such people as Fakestinians for the publicity, not because he believes it!

Unless his views have changed in the last five years.

But if that's the case, how do you know they won't change back?

Carl, there is a photo in the internet, http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSUVdyrVtgux3hazAfqFFEA3G89mbcWJvdqR7xSInH13hTFCtFEIA

if you go there, you will see Gingrich holding hands and smiling in a very, very happy mood (not forced)...

Just tell me with whom you are, and I'll tell you who you are.

Hmmm... these East coast snobs are quite negligent, lazy, and blinkered in their reasoning. They are New Age Hippies, who think that if only we hold an image in mind, it will happen. Therefore, any non-aligned facts have to be blown off. Discounted. And the verbalizer of the facts has to be pitied as an outsider. I observed them doing this mental trick in person back East this past weekend. Newt has wanted to be part of that crowd. Unless he has changed his view of their views based on the last 10 years of experience (Israel out of Leb in 2000, 9/11/01 attack, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel out of Gaza in 2005, thousands of warcrime rockets onto Israeli civilian areas, rockets, rockets, rockets in return for one-sided concessions), then he is holding the dissonant streams of thought in mind.

BTW I'm curious as to whether Mr. Gingrich has ever read River War about Sudan by Winston Churchill. Because if he has, and still would say that "Israel has to bear the burden" for the horror of the Palestinians' chosen, yet regional, day to day way of life? This is the New Age Hippie dissonance I was taking about. Visualize Whirled Peas. And if the world doesn't cooperate with your meditations, then blame the Jews. Take it out on the Jews. Basically, Newt was saying the same thing as the Czech guy in your other post. Ugh.

Disgusting. I bet Chayma will love him now.
