Gingrich In Jerusalem

NPR's Eric Weiner reports from Jerusalem that Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is in Israel to add his own partisan spin to the Middle East peace process. Having already criticized the Clinton administration's efforts to pressure Israel to withdraw its occupying troops further from the West Bank, Gingrich made it clear that his foreign policy position on Israel is no different than that of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
