"Mother Jones has obtained video of Romney at this intimate dinner and has confirmed its authenticity. The event was held at the home of controversial private equity manager Marc Leder in Boca Raton, Florida, with tickets costing $50,000 a plate. During the freewheeling conversation, a donor asked Romney how the 'Palestinian problem' can be solved. Romney immediately launche into a detailed reply, asserting that the Palestinians have 'no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, adn that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish . . . 'I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there's just no way.'. . ."

American Crossroads disuptes this version of events, but a spokesman did not immediately return calls to elaborate. . . ."
