    Rachel Madcow is the only one that said Romney said Palestinian Culture is Inferior! What he said was:



    "As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000 dollars, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality,'' ( Actually Romney underestimated the gap. Israel had a per capita gross domestic product of about $31,000 in 2011, while the West Bank and Gaza had a per capita GDP of just over $1,500, according to the World Bank)



    And he said:



    "And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things.''



    Ever been there? I have. The division of a wall is like the division of 200 years. Try Afghanistan. Is like going back 2000 years. Anyway, Romney never said the "Palestinian Culture is Inferior", he pointed out the difference between the social economics and then praised what the Jewish culture has done for it's country. Two different things.

    Supporting Israel is supporting a supremacist terrorizing Apartheid crime cartel. Don't EVER vote again for a Goldman Suks puppet supporting Israel (two faced Obomney out).

    Israel is not a angel i do agree, and the they should sit down and resolve their difference with their neighbors.
    But a lot of times Israel have been attacked and defended itself, 6 day war,67 to 70, and the Yom Kippur.And yes thete has been times when Israel went over the top.
    Israel have neighbors whose head of governments say to their people, i want to drive every man women and child into the sea.
    Israel has to change, their neighbors have to change,there is a lot of hatred on both sides.
    But just to say its 100% Israel fault is not a way forward, and yes i have been to a few Muslim countries, and a lot of the people say its gone on too long, we have to talk with Israel.

    Can see your view.

    Untrue however. Jew terror gangs initiated most aggressive wars beginning with the invasion and terror campaigns to ethnically cleanse the area and steal the land since its inception.

    It's founded on terrorism and ethnic cleansing. In the occupied territories are living people driven off from their lands and out of their homes with their offspring under martial law for more than forty years. No right to return.

    Yes, and it goes on and on, what is the problem is the term occupied occupied territories.There are a load of arabs who want peace i know i have spoken to them when i was out there a few years ago, and the people of Israel want peace.
    The Arabs want to to have the west bank,the gaza strip, which they lost because they attacked Israel.
    What is needed is the demand from Palestinian, Israel leave the occupied territories,
    to talk on disputed territories which has more options of a lasting peace.
    Its pointles that the Palestinians demanding the land back, no talk is going to go far with the words "we demand it back"
    Its a mess,and the two sideS are just has bad has each other, it may be better that we call that land x meaning that the people of Israel hold on to it and the Palestinians and policed by the nations of two sides,like a shared drive.
    And the world is full of cases where land has been occupied, and land not given back after the conflict has ended, Cyprus for one,should the people of Cyprus go and bomb and carry out acts of terror, maybe they should nothing has been done about that injustice,odd you bomb the world hears the sound, you do nothing and just hope someone hears you.

    The two sides have to talk, and talk, and change their way of thinking,that caption you show, go and look its easy to find what head of Arab countries have said what they would like to do, with Israel and their people, not exactly productive for the seeds of peace to grow when the heads of Arab countries say things like this,it does not help the people of Palestine not one bit.

    Thanks for your reply. It's much more informed than many others here. Unfortunately Arab peace initiatives have been flatly rejected.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Israel talking about the 'peace process' is a joke. It's just their way to look good and steal more land. Jew only settlements in the Westbank continued under both left and right wing Israeli governments.



    A Palestinian state of the leftovers is not viable anymore (Israel controls all the fertile land and the water resources). Israel leaders are never gonna give up their racist great Israel dreams otherwise they will be murdered like Yitzhak Rabin.

    I think they should strive for one great Israel/Palestine Republic in which the rights of both peoples are guaranteed by a Constitution that can only be changed if a majority of both sides wants it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
    Israeli Prime Minister Olmert argued, in a 2007 interview with the Israeli daily Ha'aretz, that without a two-state agreement Israel would face "a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights" in which case "Israel [would be] finished".

    Can you believe these racists openly want to hold on to their Apartheid policies?

    The main issue is occupied land, talk will have more of a chance if the term disputed land is used.
    It comes down to this, share that land has one nation,or these two contries have the same right to all the land.

    'It comes down to this, share that land has one nation,or these two contries have the same right to all the land.'

    I'm against ethnic cleansing and stealing of land and homes. I don't see Jews having special rights to drive people out of their homes and out of their lands. Ongoing stealing of land for Apartheid Jew only settlements with 40+ years martial law inflicted on the expelled people is unjust.

    Justice to the other side will solve this crisis imo. Just like justice to the other side solved 300 years of terror in Northern Ireland. Justice to the other helped South Africa under Mandela.

    Yes ethnic cleansing, the Jews should know 6million and the world done nothing, we even sent a load back to be gassed when they came to us for help but the ships were turned away and sent back to Hamburg.
    I do not think there will be peace,yes the Arabs have had a bum deal, the talks have to start now but look at what we are saying in this debate.

    Indeed the rounding up of perceived enemies of the state is horrible. Sending back Jewish refugees from Germany was ordered by UK and US because they were and are highly under the control of Zionists.
    http://www.jewsagainstzionism...

    The Germans did it to Jews, the British to Boers, the Americans to Japanese and Muslims, and many more (also my own country of course).

    'Can you imagine what they have to resolve,they have to forget what happened in the past or it will not work.'
    Got to disagree, true it will be extremely painful and resentment will continue. I could travel in North Vietnam as a tourist while they thought I was an American and therefore representing the enemy that killed millions of their families with napalm and other means.

    Northern Ireland is not an extremely violent terrorist nest anymore.
    Germans and other Europeans have very good reasons to hate the Jewish Money Mafia, still we try to get along and come up with peaceful solutions.

    That gives me hope.

    So it did not happen, the gassing with diesels, the gassing with zyklon b,the way people died, the numbers.
    Are you actually saying that all this is not true, it was a figment of the imagination,.
    They shot them at first, that was to slow, then they tried various methods till they got it right.
    Now i do not believe everything, but to question all of everything is not something i would do.Not all camps were death camps,ok please tell me how many died in the death camps then,because i will not believe your sources has you will not believe mine.
    Has for people hating another race that is simply wrong,it does not matter if they are good at making money, or that a race of people were cruel, who gives you,i, anyone to hate a whole race because of the few.
    Yes i read it before the Zionist way to enslave us,they seem to get the blame for everything, it belongs in the toilet with all the conspiracy theories,the moon,JFK,Lady Dianna,you can make a conspiracy theroy out of anything.

    Thanks for your reply. It was awful unlawful but many many people died in the camps under horrendous circumstances. Mostly from typhus (Germans cut hair and used Zyklon B to kill lice spreading the disease). At the end of the war allied air forces had total control and bombed all that moved. Shortages were severe and Germans could not get enough supplies to the overcrowded camps. Hence hunger, more disease and pictures full of horror deaths.

    The Germans had very advanced IBM registration and database systems and are known to be very punctual in registering almost everything. The books for registering the deaths in Auschwitz for example were confiscated by Stalin. These books are still classified although we got samples out of it proving children and elderly died due to typhus. Hence were not gassed directly on arrival. The story of Anne Frank and her father Otto prove the official dogma wrong also. Official dogma has people arriving Auschwitz in 1944 being marched of directly to the gas chamber. Otto Frank was sick and went to the Auschwitz hospital/sick barracks, where he survived the war. Anne Frank was transported from Auschwitz to Bergen Belsen where she died due to typhus.

    In Russia they shot the enemy and the partisans. That was gruesome but also normal practice in those w...

    When the Sovjet Union fell 1990, the Auschwitz memorial center revised the Stalin propaganda 4 million dead count down to just above 1 million (the new plaque states about 1.5). Similar downward revisions have been made for other camps.

    Why do I care about researching these inconvenient truths? I care because the war propaganda image of Hitler and the holocaust is constantly used as new war propaganda by the West to aggressively label and invade countries, bomb people to hell to prevent another holocaust happening by the new Hitler (note how MSM reported on Saddam Hussein, and now Bashar Assad).

    WE SAID NEVER AGAIN! And now some have estimated 500.000 Iraqi children dead just by Western sanctions. All bs wars we are in for corporations or Israel Apartheid hegemony in the region. It's despicable.

    So what you are saying is that it was not gas that killed them, it was the conditions in the camp that killed them.
    Ok lets say you are correct about the deaths being over the top, how many would have lived if they never went there in the first place! they were still rounded up like cattle and treated like cattle.
    And the rhetoric by the vast majority of Arab leaders, kill all people of Israel, drive them all into the sea,this then give ammo to the far right in Israel "people of Israel how can we talk of peace when their leaders say this"
    If those idiots would belt up, just maybe, just there can be talks, and if they can control the hotheads on all sides.
    We cant blame the jews for everything, not even the Iraq war,i marched against the war but if you belive that Israel is behind the war in Iraq that is up to you.

    Exactly we agree it's horrible. Same thing goes for all the other countries who rounded up perceived enemies during war times and put them in camps. Nowadays we have DFT vaccines the Germans didn't have at the time. So less deaths, but same fundamental evil.

    It has been proven to be a propaganda hoax indeed for right wing Zionists repeated again and again.

    The caption does say a lot, oil.
    When the troubles in Yugoslavia started we in the West were very slow, cant go in its civil dispute,the UN was shamed into going in.
    If there had been oil there and the flow of oil would have stopped we would have been in like a shot.

    There are different 'special interests' working together. Israel is only one of them (probably number 4 after the Saudi dictator + oil lobby). On foreign policy Israel power group dominates.

    Wall Street is nr 1 power group and has many interests in war too. (gov debt money profiteering via bankrupting wars)
    And yes the number one power group is dominated by people who call themselves 'Jews' or 'Zionists'.

    These are Mitts words now some of you must put your thinking cap on to fully understand what he is saying, others will get it right off.

    "During my recent trip to Israel, I had suggested that the choices a society makes about its culture play a role in creating prosperity, and that the significant disparity between Israeli and Palestinian living standards was powerfully influenced by it," Romney wrote. "In some quarters, that comment became the subject of controversy."

    Romney continued: "But what exactly accounts for prosperity if not culture? In the case of the United States, it is a particular kind of culture that has made us the greatest economic power in the history of Earth."

    Romney sparked outrage on Monday when he told Jewish donors that Israel's culture is part of what has made Israelis more successful than people in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

    "As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality," Romney said.

    "As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality," Romney said. He pointed to Israeli culture, as well as the business climate and the "hand of providence" as the "power" behind this economic success.

    Palestinian leaders quickly pounced on the comments, characterizing Romney's statement as "racist" and unfounded.
