Speaking at a Chicago fundraiser, the Republican candidate evoked the
Jewish collectives in comparison to American individualism.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney criticized the Kibbutz movement in a
Chicago fundraiser on Tuesday, the website Buzzfeed reported.
"Itís individuals and their entrepreneurship which have driven
America. What America is not a collective where we all work in a
Kibbutz or we all in some little entity, instead itís individuals
pursuing their dreams and building successful enterprises which
employ others and they become inspired as they see what has happened
in the place they work and go off and start their own enterprises."
Romney, who visited Israel last week, expressed strong support for
Israel in several speeches both during his visit to Israel and back
in the United States.
The Kibbutz movement, a great network of agricultural collectives
that played an instrumental part in the establishment of Israel, was
founded on Socialist ideology. (© Copyright 2012 Ha´aretz 08/08/12)
