"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,<span style="color: #3333FF">[ its actually more like $3,000]</span> you notice such <span style='font-size: 14pt'>a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality,</span>" the Republican presidential candidate told about 40 wealthy donors who ate breakfast at the luxurious King David Hotel.

Romney said some economic histories have theorized that "culture makes all the difference."

"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," Romney said, citing an innovative business climate, the Jewish history of thriving in difficult circumstances and the "hand of providence." He said similar disparity exists between neighboring countries, like Mexico and the United States.<span style="color: #3333FF">[ insults the Mexicans!]</span>

Palestinian reaction was swift and pointed.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"It is a racist statement and this man doesn't realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation,"</span> said Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"It seems to me this man lacks information, knowledge, vision and understanding of this region and its people," Erekat added. "He also lacks knowledge about the Israelis themselves. I have not heard any Israeli official speak about cultural superiority."</span>

As criticism mounted while Romney traveled to Poland, campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said: "His comments were grossly mischaracterized." The campaign contends Romney's comparison of countries that are close to each other and have wide income disparities the U.S. and Mexico, Chile and Ecuador shows his comments were broader than just the comparison between Israel and Palestine. </div></div>

This guy is just like Palin! He can't open his mouth without saying something stupid or a lie!

Mitt the Twit, does it again. Imagine this yappng idiot representing our country on the global front! OMG! Total disaster! He's as bad if not worse than Dubya, just as the Brits noticed!

So much being made over citizens in other countries being insulted by The Romneys, while Americans should be the most insulted of all by the repulsive statement made by Mitsey and Ann 'You people' Romney have said about Americans, right here in our own country.

Imagine, this out of touch, Entitled Elitist, blabbering idiot trying use diplomacy in America's interests!

He should have just stayed home and spent his time trying to convince America that he can represent all class levels of our society, which, obviously, he most certainly cannot, as he has proven with every slur against American workers, against the poor, the old, and the ill, rudely ethnic and otherwise insulting, revealing statements of no empathy or conscience.

These pigs can't even take decent care of their animals!

Amazing that there are any Americans dumb enough to vote for these two entitled pigs, the very personification of everything that is wrong with our economy.

Ann 'It's our turn' is even worse than The Twit!

Your comments are ignorant enough as to be revolting.

Israel has done far better than the Palestinians in economic terms with the help of over $115 billion dollars in accumulative US aid, and likely far more, from funding raised from Jewish Americans.

It wasn't because Israel concentrated on peaceful agriculture, whereas the Palestinians put all their money into making wars, as you appear to claim.

Considering that Israel has a nuclear arsenal in the top five largest in the world, probably every make and model of the US's most expensive war planes, and has repeatedly attacked her neighbors, and that the Palestinians have small arms and home-made rockets, it's clear enough that claim is bogus.

The question really comes down to why aren't a lot of refugees in a concentration camp having a good economy, when they have their infrastructure destroyed by periodic bombing or tank column incursions with bulldozers? That question answers itself.

Then the other question is why Israel's own economy is so fragile, and the country still not self-sufficient without continuing US aid, if they are doing so great, allegedly, from their cultural and providential superiority?

Their militarism and concentration on military might and the wars and conflicts they've started, mentioned above, explains why their economy is actually a dependent basket case.

It's bad enough the mess the Israeli's have made in the middle east, but the mess they make right here in our own country, is even worse.

What should people who invade and occupy another country expect in return for taking it over, a handshake?

Israeli's having launched decades of inhumane treatment and attacks against innocent Palestinian women and children, should be ashamed of themselves, and the U.S. needs to step back from linking our own foreign policies with what the Israeli's want.

They do not deserve further favoritism from us, when they have proven, over and over again, they are more then willing to take our billions, annd then flip us the bird whenn we ask that they work for peace in their region.

As Brzezinski has stated, the right wing of israel, is just as much of a terrorist group, as ny others in their region.

It is time for us to call them out for their many inhumane infractions against humanity and peace.
