NEW YORK, December 15, 2014 — That man John Kerry, our Secretary of State, sure has some appetite. He is insatiable, at least for Israel.
Reports keep coming in telling us that Kerry wants peace and security for Israel, even at a price of Israel without Israelis.
So Kerry has been engaging in dogged shuttle diplomacy.
This puts him in Israel almost every single day, determined to stay there until the Jewish State cries uncle.
Israel’s defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, is supposed to have whispered off the record that Kerry offers no security and no peace with every old plan or new plan repackaged with ribbons. Yaalon ventured that Kerry was “messianic” and “obsessive,” and, since this was overheard, he had to take it all back.
After all, the two nations are friends, though sometimes it appears that Kerry and his boss President Obama can’t tell friend from foe.
Or maybe Kerry loves the Jewish State and it only appears otherwise.
If reports coming in are to be believed, Kerry wants Israel to fully relinquish Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), so here would be another uprooting of Jewish citizens who thought they were as secure in their own land as were the Israelis who thought they were safe and snug in Gaza, until Ariel Sharon had them deported and replaced by Palestinian Arabs.
Throughout Israel, Arabs share the land and the liberty with Jews. However, in territories taken by Palestinians – no Jews allowed. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas reminds Kerry about this often enough, but that does not seem to bother Kerry or anybody else.
After the West Bank is cleansed of Jews, Kerry is said to want Israelis vacated from the Jordan Valley. This would be another self-inflicted pogrom and make Netanya vulnerable to rocket attacks, but that is likewise of no concern, since it is sure to bring peace, even as Hamas in Gaza can’t seem to speak that language.
For more peace and security, we are advised that Kerry’s big plan includes an invitation for 80,000 Palestinians to settle inside Israel (with more to follow), where nearly two million Palestinians already live. But that is not enough. So wherever Jews are uprooted and sent packing, Palestinian “refugees” are sure to find a home.
There is no talk, no concern about Jewish refugees. Of the 8,500 Israelis who were vacated from Gaza, many still live in trailer parks.
Kerry, if some of the wires are correct, is the catalyst of the European boycott against Israel. He uses that as a hammer to bring Israel to buckle. Can this be true?
Can this be the plan for peace and security, or was this plan hatched for only one purpose; to see Israel destroyed?
We have to trust that Kerry has Israel’s best interests in mind.
Except that Kerry, surely operating through Obama, has given Iran the green light to build itself a bomb.
Never mind all this talk about centrifuges. Nobody knows what that is. But people know a bomb, and this is a bomb that Iran is building.
Everybody knows this.
The Israelis sure know what Iran has in mind. Hardly a day goes by without some Iranian leader threatening to wipe Israel off the map.
The same bombs could hit us here in the United States, but that too is of no concern.
So Kerry, and the Obama administration, is thumbs up on Iran; thumbs down on Israel. Or rather, up with our enemies, down with our friends.
So it seems, to some. To others, hey, our friends around the world never had pals quite like Obama, Kerry and Hillary.
