Fmr. GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says Romney 'culture' comments were right

Newt Gingrich responds to Mitt Romney's comments about the impact of culture on accomplishments in Israel and Palestine.

"Well, first of all, I don't think he made a mistake in Israel," Gingrich says. "I think the comments about culture were right, and I wish that the elites had the courage to look at the United Nations refugee camps and realize what anti-human disaster those are refugee camps are, how much they have been breeders of terrorism, how fundamentally wrong their design is, and how much we have done a disservice to the people of Palestine, the Palestinians, by allowing them to be subjected to that kind of government-run, totally inappropriate structure."

"So there I hope that Gov. Romney will stick to his guns," Gingrich adds. "Let's have the argument."
