Gingrich: Romney "didn't make a mistake in Israel;" "comments about culture were right"

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich responds to Mitt Romney’s comments about culture’s impact on accomplishments in Israel and Palestine.

Gingrich says, “Well, first of all, I don’t think he made a mistake in Israel. I think the comments about culture were right. I wish that the elites of this country had the courage to look at the United Nations refuge camps and realize what an anti-human disaster those refuge camps are, how much they have been breeders of terrorism, how fundamentally wrong their design is and how much we’ve done a disservice to… the Palestinians by allowing them to be subjected to that kind of government run, totally inappropriate structure. So there I hope that Governor Romney will stick to his guns. Let’s have the argument.”
