John Kerry has been lying to you all along.
Not to me.
I had the bum figured out years ago and made my point on these pages over and over again.
The man is a fraud.
He has been telling the world — virtually from the get-go of his “peace process’ that progress has been made.
Word out of his propaganda machine was that the Arabs and Israelis — make that Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu — actually were working toward a deal.
At least that’s the bull-doo-doo that Kerry was tossing around. Throwing it around specifically to rationalize his merry-go-round of talks with Israelis and Palestinians, hoping to attain the un-attainable.
Who knows what Kerry’s ulterior motive happens to be. Does he aspire to become the next American president? Is this phony crusade of his designed simply to burnish his image as Secretary of State?
Really, as far as Israel’s good and welfare is concerned it really doesn’t matter.
The peace talks which extended through March were an exercise in futility. There was nothing encouraging because it basically Arabs talking to Kerry and Jews talking to Kerry but virtually never did the Palestinians and Israelis deal face-to-face with one another.
Kerry knew this. So did his Israeli-bashing boss in the White House. But they combined to create this charade simply to make themselves look good.
Tzipi Livni, Israel’s chief negotiator, dutifully kept her mouth shut vis-a-vis Obama-Kerry as the Livini, the personification of political correctitude.
But when the Palestinians walked away from the “talks” last week even Tzipi had it up to here and, finally, ripped Abbas, Inc. for their duplicitous behavior.
Make no mistake, Kerry will try to salvage the negotiations — and his withered reputation — by pushing Israel into even more concessions.
This time, there should be no question about Bibi’s answer, once and for all.
“Enough is enough!”
