This noted self appointed historian is quite often wrong.
The only thing that separates Palestine from Israel is 8000 square miles, and an ideology or two.
Palestine can be understood as more than a nation state, it can be known as a continent.
It boggles the mind of this seeder that Israel, such a tiny little nation can harbor so much power that an American of any political stripe will do anything in his/her means to protect it.
Newt isn't alone I will give you that, democrats as well have bent to kiss the feet of Israel. The PM of Israel spoke to our congressional leaders as if HE were the president of this country.
That to me is quite odd.
But to lie about history to defend a political position is rather unintelligent and intellectually weak.
