Gingrich Defends Position on Invented Palestinian Nation
LA Times – After sparking controversy when he said that the Palestinians are “an invented” people, Newt Gingrich doubled down on the comment Saturday despite being scolded by rivals.
“The fact is, the Palestinian claim to a right of return is based on a historically false story,” Gingrich said. ” ‘Palestinian’ did not become a common term until after 1977. This is a propaganda war in which our side refuses to engage and we refuse to tell the truth when the other side lies.”
