The claim is based on an unsubstantiated (i.e. fictional) "report" on antisemitism at the protests put out by a William Kristol mouthpiece, the co-called "Emergency Committee for Israel" which is actually mostly a right wing PAC seeking to discredit the Obama administration and now also the OWS movement. They put out a one minute video "documenting" horrific antisemitism but when looked at with an ounce of context it was readily revealed that the footage in the clip was totally out of context and thoroughly misleading. In short, it was bogus. That Newt would parrot it is in no way surprising. Of course as Newt knows nothing is easier than misleading the public. For every person who will research the claim for 5 minutes there are 20 who won't.

Newt has found a new accusation on OWS It is sinister in order to talk against it in this way And find new sympathizers. That is Anti-Semetic..
What will they think on next?

BHO wishes he had a Newt to help with the budget like Bill Clinton did. Then maybe BHO would go in presidential history for something other than having a non-citizen father.
So much for presidents getting credit for the budgets.

Some like Mr. Gingrich and others on the far right view anyone who does not support Israel unquestionably and without reserve as 'Anti-Semites. Speaking out against Israel's heavy handedness and treating all Palestinians as if they were terrorists, it's anti-productive increasing of settlements in occupied lands and East Jerusalem is actually just the view of many of us who long for a just peace and two state solution. Sadly as with the 'troubles' in Ireland, it will take the mothers on both sides just saying 'Enough!' Shalom Newt.

The only reason the GOTKLANKOCHBAGGERS claim to support Israel is because they believe one day all the Jews will disappear and they will inherit the holy land when Jeebus comes back.

Actually the jews believe that all the goy will disappear in a decimating war and then the jews will will be lords over the earth for 10,000 years.

These "occupy" people are no better that Ernst Rohm's Brown shirts! They are just a new breed of socialist without the starched brown uniforms, and they have not learned how goose step yet.

This is democracy in action, America in action, Remember tyhe 1st amendment, bull, right to free speech, to assembly, to petition the government, phone calls, emails, snailmails have not worked. The congress, esp the repubs who have stated their main goal is obstructionism to prevent a second term for the president, have not listened to the people, te people for whom they are supposed to be working, not for party and ideology as the repubs have done. Boehner promised jobs, where are they? He and his minions are putting out bills for thei social agenda, in particular anti-choice, anti-women, that they know will go nowhere while doing nothing on jobs but not passing the American jobs bill act that will, among other things, put police, firefighters, teachers, back to work. The p-rotestors are not calling for socialism but for a fairness where the top 1% do not continue to thriive and grow while the rest of the country sees their wages go lower and lower. The repubs said Bush tax cuts while result in wealthy creating jobs. They have not done so but instead sit on thier money. Take away the tax cuts (which are not a tax increase as the repubs lies continue to insist they are) which has helped them but not the rest of the country. Citizens united = corporations in charge of elections, not the people. Maybe you would prefer a govenrment that does not speak for the country but only for ideology?

Newt, "I am a moderate." Newt,"I am essentially a revolutionary." Newt, "I'm a creature of the House." Newt, "The House is a corrupt institution." Newt, "The thing that shocks people....is that I mean what I say. I don't use hyperbole." Newt, "If the federal government had improved efficiency as much as the computer has since 1950, we'd only need four federal employees and the federal budget would be $100,000." Newt, "This is really hard, making this happen--educating, reeducating, over and over, making a mistake, having to reanalyze. I'm trying to educate a nation in the skills of self-government." Newt, "Don't try to educate them [the voters] that is not your job. You're in the politics business." Newt, "Our liberal national elite doesn't believe in religion." Newt, "I'm not a strong believer." Newt, "Democrats are the enemy of normal Americans." Newt, "The greatest leaders in fighting for an integrated America in the twentieth century were in the Democratic Party. The fact is, it was the liberal wing of the Democratic Party that ended segregation. The fact is that it was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who gave hope to a nation that was in despair and could have slid into a dictatorship."

The same kind of accusation Joseph Goebbels might have made about the Hitler's opponents as he ran for the office of Chancellor.

Which straw is Gingrich grasping at this week?
09:20 AM on 10/27/2011
Newt says Anti-Semitism, Well at least some of the occupiers have peeked behind the curtain at emerald city and seen the truth.

Divide and conquer ... I'm thinking this Newt has a strategy in place ... perhaps a contract with Jewish people.

and i'm sorry but what kind of name is 'newt' for a grown man expecting to be taken seriously? I recall an Arthurian tale where Merlin called the VERY young and foolish Arthur 'newt'...Some grow out of it some don't....

If you look at Gingrich's history :

Adultery:

Callista Bisek. Anne Manning. The unnamed "young volunteer". Are we missing anyone?

Draft dodger

Dead-Beat Dad

Family Values? Pressing Wife for Divorce in the Hospital

House Banking Scandal: Newt Bounced 22 Checks

Book Deals: Murdoch's $4.5 Million wasn't the first

GOPAC sleaze: Taxpayer subsidies for his partisan campaign course.

Corporate reward: $2,500/month to Newt's wife

http://www.realchange.org/gingrich.htm

it's not surprising that this Pathological Liar would make this type of an accusation

Ugly low rent Newtie trying to stir things up because his campaign is in the toilet. It's not nearly what this headline seeker and craver purport it to be. Go away ... you are stale and hateful.

We are just seeing the beginning of social unrest in America and there will be many sweeping claims from right wingers like Gingrich as they try to smear and undermine the resistance to their radical program of redistribution of income towards the top. People should not be sidetracked by this or fall into the traps they set.
