WASHINGTON (AP) – GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney tells donors in a newly released video clip that Palestinians “have no interest” in peace with Israel.

The remarks are contained in a video clip posted Tuesday on the website of the magazine Mother Jones. The editors say the video is from a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser in Boca Raton, Fla., on May 17.

In the latest clip, Romney is asked about the “Palestinian problem.” He gives a rambling response, then says “the Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace,” and “the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”

In another portion of the video released Monday, Romney says almost half of Americans “believe that they are victims.” Late Monday, Romney did not dispute the clip but said his remarks were “not elegantly stated.”
