If a lame duck Secretary of State speaks, is anybody even listening?
I skimmed through the text of John Kerry’s clueless and naïvely idealistic twaddle and my first response is, “Who cares?”
What has John Kerry accomplished in the nearly four years he’s been America’s top diplomat?
It would be one thing if, for the last four years, John Kerry has overseen significant steps toward normalizing and stabilizing the Middle East.
Then perhaps he’d have earned some moral authority to lecture another sovereign nation about “lasting peace.”
But he hasn’t. He along with Barack Obama have been a blight on the Middle East. It’s been like putting the Keystone Kops in charge.
They’ve created more instability, more war, more genocide and more terrorism.
They’ve cleared the way for Iran to gain hegemony over the region.
Their actions have left Europe in ruins.
And they’ve left a pile of bodies in their wake.
Who is he to lecture Israel about peace?
As Emily Gilmore once said “When a woman gives birth to a crack baby, you don’t buy her a puppy.”
John Kerry has not earned the right to be heard.
The irony of course is that this Administration is threatening retaliation against Russia for supposedly interfering with our elections.
Yet this Administration feels it has the right and the moral authority to interfere with how Israel governs itself.
And they are completely oblivious to the rank hypocrisy.
If John Kerry were really interested in “peace” why is he attacking the only free and democratic country in the Middle East?
Well, we all know why, don’t we?
Of course the most eye-popping statement Kerry made was to tell Israel that it can be Jewish or democratic, but it can’t be both.
What does that even mean?
Does Kerry believe that Jews are incapable of running a democratic government?
Obviously they are capable since Israel is a democracy.
I can’t help but wonder if John Kerry would ever tell Egypt or Yemen or any other Muslim nation “You can either be Muslim or democratic, but you can’t be both.”
Israel is the only country in the Middle East where Christians, Jews and Arabs can live freely without fear of persecution.
This belief that if only the supposed “Palestinians” had their own separate state there would be peace is deeply naïve.
These people believe the nation of Israel must be wiped off the face of the earth. Giving them their own state isn’t going to change that.
“Two State Solution” is a lie. It isn’t a solution to anything.
It astonishes me to no end how willing John Kerry is to trust these terrorist vermin.
You cannot negotiate in good faith with a group of people who want to destroy you.
That’s why this Iran deal was such a terrible, terrible idea.
Likewise, entrusting the Palestinian Authority to negotiate in good faith shows a level of ignorance and willful blindness that has no place in the real world.
But in the end, does it really matter what John Kerry says?
President-elect Trump has already made it crystal clear that he will restore America’s relationship with Israel. He will undo the damage of the last eight years.
And unlike Barack Obama and John Kerry who bend over backwards to accommodate the United Nations, a Trump Administration will put America’s interests and the interests of our allies above anything that anti-Semitic cesspool says or does.
The only thing the Obama Administration may have accomplished by this last-ditch effort to stab Israel in the back is hastening the irrelevance of the UN.
Then again, Barack Obama is an expert at unintended consequences.
I’ve said this before. But the way that Barack Obama is leaving office is strikingly similar to the way Saddam Hussein left Kuwait. He is setting fires and burning everything to the ground on his way out the door.
