So, the current favorite evil villain character in my small world states what many think is true, that folks in Palestine are an “invented people” – for example, as reported here: Newt Gingrich: Palestinians are “invented” people – Political Hotsheet – CBS News.  He really made a splash with this statement at the Repub debate the other night.

Okay. Two questions:

Why does this matter? and,

If Palestinians are “invented,” aren’t “Americans” also more of a construct than a People.

And, a third question, coming back around: Why would that matter?

Just wonderin’……………………. Newt? anyone?
