Mitt Romney on tape: Palestinians don’t want peace
WASHINGTON (MCT) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney dismissed the prospects for an independent Palestinian state coexisting with Israel — a decades-old bipartisan U.S. goal — in a secretly recorded meeting last spring with campaign donors.
“I’m torn by two perspectives in this regard. One is the one which I’ve had for some time, which is that the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish,” he told attendees at a May fundraiser in Boca Raton, Fla., according to a video of the event obtained by Mother Jones magazine that was released Tuesday.
