John Kerry, I am calling you out!
You are liar and have intentionally caused Israel, your ally Israel, great harm
When you went before Congress last week, you tactically stated a half-truth that – as I see it -- intentionally harmed the negotiating stance of Israel.
When you said Israel should not make Palestinian recognition of Israel as the Jewish Nation state priority number one because of international agreements that already exist, you were stating facts, but you were NOT telling the Truth!
Yes, it is fact, Secretary of State Kerry, that the United Nations made recognition of Israel as the Jewish Nation state international law when they declared the partition of the Land of Israel into two states (the famed two-state solution), one Arab and one Jewish.
There is just one big problem with the statement you made.
While a majority of the countries in the world and the U.N. have recognized the Jewish Nation State, there is one important group that has not; the Arabs, and specifically the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.
The Arabs have rejected Israel and the Jewish Nation’s right to exist since the beginning of the conflict -- hence the only reason why there is a conflict.
You know this, and you also know that Palestinian recognition of Israel’s right to exist as the Jewish Nation state is the core of the conflict. It always has been.
You also know (even though you denied it when speaking under oath in front of Congress) that if the Palestinians fail to recognize Israel as the Jewish Nation then there is definitely no point in Israel giving up more land for yet another Arab state.
You knew these facts and yet you still lied in your statement. Why would you lie and behave in such a duplicitous manner against “your staunch ally Israel”.
Because you and President Barack Obama dislike Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government with such a passion, you are ready to lie and spread innuendo against Israel.
You, Sir, made these comments in Congress so it would appear that Israel is the cause of the failure of your peace talks.
You are willing to place blame on Israel, when it is clearly Abbas and his 21st. Century version of the "Three No's" that are destroying peace. You are doing this in the hope of disgracing the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu. You and your president are willing to jeopardize the safety of Israeli citizens for your over-weaning egos.
The failure of Kerry’s peace talks are so clearly based in the roots and flames of Palestinian rejectionism and colonialist hatred towards Israel and the Jewish Nation state.
Tell me I am wrong, John Kerry. I am calling you out, John!
Mahmoud Abbas just returned from the White House full of rhetoric that he will not compromise an inch with Israel. It's Khartoum all over again John. What did Abbas say to your framework agreement? NO, NO, NO.
This continuing rejection is the truth of your failure. This endless rejection of Israel’s right to exist is why your talks were doomed to end in failure.
John Kerry, many times you have threatened Israel with what will happen after the Palestinians reject your proposal. One of these threats is the demographic situation Israel faces if we do not make peace with the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.
Yet you seem to think we Israelis are either so dumb or such whores that we can’t see through your petty threats, or that we will except American dollars over our freedom.
Every Israeli who is not a complete traitor to his country, knows that if the Palestinians do not except Israel as the Jewish Nation state and if the lie called the “Right of Return” is not handled with compensation or citizenship in the new Palestinian state, then there is no point in reaching an agreement.
Any agreement that fails to recognize Israel as the Jewish nation and fails to convert the “right of return” into compensation and nationhood in the new state of Palestine, will be as far away from peace as you can get.
I am calling you out, John Kerry; tell me I am wrong!
