Romney: Peace between Israel and Palestinians "unthinkable"

Another secret video shows Romney is skeptical about the two-state solution

Published September 18, 2012 2:00PM (EDT)

In another of a series of damning videos leaked to Mother Jones, Mitt Romney indicates that he doesn't think peace between Israel and the Palestinians is possible, because the Palestinians have "no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish."

He continued: "I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there's just no way."
