Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney met with Jewish donors in Jerusalem on Monday. He told them their culture is part of what allowed them to be more economically successful than the Palestinians.
The comments outraged Palestinian leaders. They called Romney "racist" and out of touch with the realities of the Middle East.
Republican Strategist Jack Burkman and Democratic Strategist Richard Fowler discussed Romney's overseas trip, the political importance of Israel, and other issues on Capital Insider.
