    Yes, the Palestinians are an "invented" people.....but so are we as so called Americans. Before the revolution we were English. If there are true Americans, they should be called Indians or native Americans. But his stupidity does not stop there. What are the Syrians, Saudis, Lebanese, Jordanians, Iraqis, Most of Africa, Canadians, Mexico and most of Latin and South America, Serbia, Bosnia and on and on. What is Gingrich trying to say? Is he saying that Palestinians have no right to define themselves as a nation? Today the overwhelming majority of Israelis do not accept the kind of nonsense put forth by Gingrich. Israel cannot survive demographically as a binational state without surpressing millions of people and losing any semblance of being a democratic state with protections for all people. You don't have to love Palestinians to know that the survival of Israel depends on bringing about a Palestinian state we can live with. Gingrich who is supposedly a historian has little understanding and faulty information. He is not a historian, but instead he is a pandering political hack.

    from the article: Sheldon Adelson to Birthright group: Gingrich is right to call Palestinians 'invented people'

Orange-hued wine, made by a man who dared to defy Israel's Chief Rabbinate

Jacob Oryah, a religious vintner, challenged the notion that wine touched by a secular person cannot be kosher – and was promptly punished for it. But he persevered to make what has been described as Israel's tastiest and most thought-provoking wine.
