Pathetic is the correct term.
John Kerry, GO HOME – that’s the message in the minds of most all of Israelites, or at least the ones who bothered to listen to what is probably his final speech on Israeli-Palestinian relations before he leaves office to make room for incoming Donald Trump.
And that’s because once again, Kerry mouthed the same old, tired and unsuccessful rhetoric about the need for Israel to make whatever concessions necessary to arrive at a two-state peace solution with the Palestinians.
Kerry didn’t explicitly say, but what those concessions are supposed to ignore is the fact that most Palestinians want to blot Israel and all Israel’s occupants off the face of the world map.
Can you say genocide? Apparently Kerry can’t but maybe that’s kind of what he’s thinking, as well as the man he works for, President Obama, because the Obama administration keeps pressing a two-state solution that ignores this basic fact about the Palestinians.
No surprise, really. Obama and his White House have never been big fans of the Jewish state.
As Independent Journal Review reported:
“[Kerry’s] speech comes after the Obama administration declined to stop a U.N. resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlements in east Jerusalem and the West Bank. Further, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer said on CNN Monday that there is ‘clear evidence’ the U.S. was actually behind the resolution.”
Trump, meanwhile, has a different approach planned for U.S.-Israeli relations, and it’s one that’s rooted in, say, allowing Jewish people to live.
He tweeted in the leadup to Kerry’s sad speech, IJR found:
“We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but … not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”
One has to wonder if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is counting down the days to January 20 – or if he’s counting the minutes. Chances are, it’s the latter.
