PA daily editor calls US presidential candidate Gingrich "politically and sexually a teenager"

Hafez Barghouti, editor of official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida writes about American presidential candidates competing to appease Israel. Mentions Newt Gingrich who called the Palestinians an “invented” people and claimed that Palestinian textbooks feature the question, “If there were 13 Jews and 9 are killed, how many are left?”
Headline: "Appeasing Israel"
"Gingrich attacked Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and our colleague, Adli Sadeq, following an article he wrote nine years ago, which contains no incitement or anything, but whoever has the ear of the candidate [Gingrich] – politically and sexually a teenager – distorted the translation for him, taught him lies, and gave him the impression that this would please Israel. This is despite the fact that Israel can be served in other ways, such as urging it towards peace and stopping settlement, because whoever supports Israeli extremism is only digging Israel's grave… If Gingrich, for example, wants to find incitement, he should read the Israeli curricula, its racist laws, and the articles and statements by the leaders of the Israeli right wing."
