This week, a group of medical clowns gathered in Haifa, Israel. They were there to discuss techniques that may help children relax during medical procedures and keep up their spirits in order to improve outcomes.
But they werent the only clowns in Israel this week.
As they were practicing balloon animals, Mitt Romney was clowning around in Jerusalem. Only there was nothing funny about Romneys performance.
After insulting the British with his comments about the lack of preparation for the London Olympics, he was labeled The American Borat by a German publication. Then, during his trip to Israel, he insulted Palestinians by calling Jerusalem the Israeli capitol. As if that werent bad enough, he further insulted the Palestinians by stating the difference between the Israeli economy and the Palestinian economy was that Israel has a superior culture.
Saeb Erekat, a senior aide responded by saying, “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.”
Mitt, please come home soon! The US is trying to broker peace between Israel and Palestine. Not create another war.
