Mitt Romney’s campaign for U.S. president is once again in damage control today after the Republican nominee told Jewish donors their culture has allowed Israelis to be more economically successful than Palestinians.

Outraged Palestinian leaders suggested his comments were racist and out of touch with the realities of the Middle East due to the occupation of Palestinian lands and its stringent controls over access to the West Bank and movement of its residents. Romney’s campaign said his remarks were mischaracterized as they were broader than just a comparison between Israel and Palestine.

Romney also spoke aggressively Sunday about protecting Israel from Iranian nuclear threats and suggested that he was open to breaking with U.S. policy dating to 1967 by moving the United States embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv if the Israelis asked.
