It’s good that he knows that. Hope he stands firm. “Romney: Palestinians not interested in peace,” by Ken Thomas for the Associated Press, September 17:
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Republican Mitt Romney faced a new challenge Tuesday for saying Palestinians “have no interest” in peace with Israel, comments captured on newly released videotape of his private remarks to wealthy donors.
“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. He said pushing Israel to give up disputed territory for a two-state solution with the Palestinians “is the worst idea in the world.”
