Mitt Romney elevated Palestinian’s hairs with a statement attributing their financial hole with Israel about its culture.

Romney told a well-mended Jewish contributor, “I was thinking this morning as I prepared to come into this room of a discussion I had across the country in the United States about my perceptions about differences between countries.” The Israeli press told that the fundraising meal costs $50,000 per couple.

He added, “As you come here and you see the GDP per capita for instance in Israel which is about $21,000 and you compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority which is more like $10,000 per capita you notice a dramatic, stark difference in economic vitality.”

Respected global organizations comprising the World Bank and the IMF tell that a main issue after Palestinian financial afflictions is the Israeli limits on undertaking of merchandises and individuals, and other actions that obstruct development.

However, Romney did not made any comment regarding such matters.

Romney told the Jerusalem listeners before parting for Poland, “Culture makes all the difference. 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.”

Saeb Erakat, a Palestinian diplomat, said that the statement was racially prejudiced.

He added, “Romney’s statements are racist and this guy needs to learn a lot, as he lacks knowledge of this region, its culture and history. Clearly he does not know that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its expected level if the occupation continues.”

Last Sunday, Romney aggravated the Palestinians by addressing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Romney said in a deceptive commendation of a position detained by the Jewish state, “It is a deeply moving experience to be in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.”

Some Palestinians, who claimed Israeli-occupied east Jerusalem as the center of an upcoming state, were furious.

Sami Abu Zukhri, the Islamic radical group’s spokesperson said, “Hamas considers the statement made by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, saying Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, racist and extremist.”

In the first interview of Cheney with ABC News, he said, “I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her, I know her. She was an attractive candidate.”

He added, “But based on her background – she had only been governor for what, two years? – I don’t think she passed that test of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.”

When John McCain selected Palin in 2008, Palin was the first lady ever to be nominated as a Republican vice-presidential contender. Though it offered McCain campaign a knock of eagerness; however her inexperience on the national stage shortly started to appear.

The poll between two presidential candidates is still in close fight; this hopes Romney to aid him to persuade the customary Democratic Jewish voters and even evangelical Christians who are keenly protecting the government policy.

In Israel, Romney aside from Netanyahu will meet Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Pres. Shimon Peres.

“With emotions so high right now, this is really not a time to be talking about the politics associated with what happened in Aurora,” Romney spoke with CNBC. “I still believe that the Second Amendment is the right course to preserve and defend and don’t believe that new laws are going to make a difference in this type of tragedy.”

Michael Bloomberg, New York City Mayor, mentions Mitt Romney and President Obama directly after the Aurora killings to voice out on what they should do about weapons issue.

Jay Carney, the White House spokesperson believed that Obama has no strategies to drive for new weapon law in the awaken of the incident last week during the first showing of Batman film which resulted to the death of 12 people. That comprises a new form of a federal prohibition on severe arms that terminated throughout George W. Bush government.

Mitt Romney has a scheduled visit in Gdansk and Warsaw this coming July 30 and 31 with the invitation of Lech Walesa – the communist-period rebel who obtained the Nobel Peace Prize award in 1983 for his boldness of the communist government.

Walesa may be a great advantage for Romney. Way back in history, Walesa became the president in Poland in the year 1990. He was frequently contentious at home because of unpolished behaviors and efforts to sign off accountability for any previous inadequacies. Walesa, the past shipyard electrician earns global admiration and is perceived as influential in moving the sequence of history in the previous Soviet alliance.

Campaign pictures together with Walesa aided Solidarity contenders get seats in Poland’s parliament during the 1989 election. Having shots with the well-known leader will probably be a big help for Romney’s campaign this year.

Mitt Romney will also see some of Poland’s high officials including President Bronislaw Komorowski, Prime Minister Donald Tusk, and Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski. Also, he will make a public speech in Warsaw during his tour.
