WASHINGTON - US Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney told donors attending his campaign's Utah retreat this weekend that he is briefed on the Middle East by Israeli government officials.

About 50 of the 700 donors who attended the retreat in Park City were Jewish, according to one in attendance.



Many of these attended a breakout session Friday afternoon on the US-Israel relationship, although between half and three quarters of the 100 donors attending the session were not Jewish.

Romney dropped in on the session, and said he had just been briefed by the Israeli ambassador, Michael Oren, speaking about, among other issues, the situation in Syria, the elections in Egypt and the effort to isolate Iran.
