Sheldon Adelson to Birthright group: Gingrich is right to call Palestinians 'invented people'http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/sheldon-adelson-to-birthright-group-gingrich-is-right-to-call-palestinians-invented-people-1.403671
Who Is Sheldon Adelson, the Gingrich Super PAC's Billionaire Backer?
Vying for the presidency of the United States, or that of Israel?
............Newt should just step down....but I don't disagree with his statement.
There is SOME truth to what he's saying, but there are also Arabs who have lived in that land for countless generations, and if they want to identify themselves as "Palestinians", it isn't Gingrich's place to say otherwise.
As for Adelson, the less said the better. But he's not the problem. The problem is that the system is structured to allow someone like him to have that much influence because he has the $$.
