You-See No. 1:
My friend's wife is from Palestine, and my friend, a nice fellow, has written a letter to the Editor of the Peoria Journal Star to claim to the world that he loves his "invented" wife. His letter can be found at this forum at http://www.pjstar.com/opinions/forum/x1386886639/Forum-I-love-my-invented-wife.
Here is the letter if its link is broken:
I LOVE my "invented" wife
According to Mr. Gingrich, I should be looking for a new wife, because the one I have now simply does not exist.
You see, my wife is of Palestinian descent, so she is an "invented" person and does not exist. Could a person who is planning to be the leader of the free world be lying to us?
Mr. Gingrich decided to sell his soul for a few campaign dollars and a few votes, but he forgot that there are many decent Jews in the world who will not buy his lies, will not support him, and will not vote for him.
My wife's parents were born in Palestine, and generation upon generation of her ancestors lived their whole lives in Palestine. I love her more than Mr. Gingrich could imagine, and everyone who knows her loves her and respects her.
Gingrich lies to people and they may applaud. They may seem to be smiling to him, but they are actually laughing at his ignorance.

My friend's wife , who is really a nice person, has claimed to us, their friends, and in her husband's presence that he has not been very expressive of his emotions, and that to get him to say "I love you" to her from time to time was close to impossible.
With this public declaration of his love of his wife, Professor Elhouar might not have to say it anymore.
Newt's remark on Palestine has indeed at least an unintended but happy consequence in the life of one couple. Will there be others in the lives of couples with "invented" Palestinian spouses across the United States of America?
I confirm Suheil's statement that everyone who knows his wife loves her." I will even say the following: "Suheil, I love your 'invented' wife and I respect her, and I think she loves me too."
