Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney just released the following statement, calling for President Obama to fire his ambassador and fundraiser, Howard Gutman, who blamed Israel for Muslim anti-Semitism:

Mitt Romney

“President Obama must fire his ambassador to Belgium for rationalizing and downplaying anti-Semitism and linking it to Israeli policy toward the Palestinians. The ambassador's comments demonstrate the Obama administration's failure to understand the worldwide campaign to delegitimize Israel and its appalling penchant for undermining our close ally.”

Newt Gingrich called for Ambassador Gutman's firing yesterday on Twitter.
