Review of Newt's speech Sunday night at Republican Jewish Coalition

I will post the video as soon as it becomes available, but for now, here is a recap:

Newt once again reaffirmed his commitment to allow Israel -- as the United States does with every other country in the world -- to pick the site of where our embassy goes. We do not place our embassy in Jerusalem, which is what the Israelis want. The crowd gave Newt "sustained" applause for that.

Newt also received a long standing ovation for his call to eliminate funding for the United Nations should the General Assembly move to recognize a Palestinian State under Hamas.

Barbara Efraim, who did a great job live-tweeting the speech, quotes Gingrich: "If Israel disarmed today, there would be no Israel tomorrow. But if Hamas, Iran and Hizbollah disarmed today, there'd be peace in the ME."

Another money quote: "both Israel and America are at a dangerous crossroads at which the survival of Israel and the safety of the United States both hang in the balance."

Before the speech, Newt reportedly hosted a private fundraiser.
