John Kerry Betrays America and Israel

The war is over. The Palestinian Authority has lost. The United States has declared Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel. The crown princes of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates told Mahmoud Abbas to cut out the nonsense and to negotiate a peace treaty with Israel. The government of Egypt told Abbas to accept Ramallah as the new capital of a new Palestinian state.

And yet, Abbas persists. True enough, he and his cohorts have sacrificed the lives of three generations of children to their anti-Semitic rage. It is not going to be easy to accept that level of political failure. The truth remains: to resolve the conflict, Abbas and the Palestinians will have to give up and to give in. The more intransigent he is the worse it will be for his people.

But, Abbas also knows that the European Union, led by dimwitted foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini has his back. Now, he also knows that John Kerry—you remember him—also supports the Palestinian cause. Those who continue to believe that the Obama administration was pro-Israeli should take serious note about Kerry’s willingness to undermine Israel and American foreign policy.

… former US secretary of state John Kerry met in London with a close associate of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Hussein Agha, for a long and open conversation about a variety of topics. Agha apparently reported details of the conversation to senior PA officials in Ramallah. A senior PA official confirmed to Maariv that the meeting took place.

During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to “hold on and be strong.” Tell him, he told Agha, “that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President [Donald] Trump’s demands.”

According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that Kerry said that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.

Some people believe that there is a cabal working in Washington to undermine the Trump administration. Kerry seems to believe that such is the case. What does he know that we don't? 

As for Kerry’s interference in American foreign policy, it is specifically forbidden under the Logan Act. That legislation dates to 1799 and says that a private citizen may not negotiate with foreign governments that are having disputes with America. Perhaps we should prosecute John Kerry for violating the Logan Act. He is also allowing Palestinian terrorists to believe that they should not negotiate peace but that they will receive an ultimate reward for continuing to kill Jews.

This is the only way al-Qerry can remain over the horizon. I doubt he cares about palistiniansers any more than anyone else, which is to say not much. But when you're looking for a cause and it has to be anti-American because that's the only open niche, beggars can't be choosers.

Kerry does have theme music for his public appearnces:

Jack Fisher said...

James, excellent choice. The music should be diegetic -- every time he steps off a plane, walks through a crowd, enters a restaurant, goes up on stage, that music should be played by street performers, small ensembles, elevators, high school marching bands, radios.

I chose the Beatles' I'm a loser as the leitmotif for al-Qerry appearances (mine is the Imperial march,), but in the jazz lounge/elevator style of Vince Guaraldi.

James said...

Yes, the Guaraldi is wonderful. It brings to mind Kerry when he's heroically wind surfing!

Anonymous said...

It is not because he is unfamiliar with betraying America or its soldiers. He is well practiced at it.

Sam L. said...

I haven't thought of Guaraldi for yearrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs. THANKS, Jack!

James said...

A little O/T but this is some of the music a like:
I think that's Keltner playing drums.

Jack Fisher said...

James, you've got me going down a rabbit hole of Ry Cooder vids. Harry Dean Stanton is on that album, so in that vein, check out Hugh Laurie, Wild Honey

I'm a jazz drummer, favorites are Max Roach and Joe Morello.

Think of all the cultural appropriation going on.

John Fraud Kerry needs to go away and go snuggle with his sugar momma.

My goodness, what an intensely boring man.

James said...

I liked the Wild Honey deal (especially the backup singers in their hats). I don't know about culture, but the music's pretty good.

I was flippant about Kerry before, but I cannot stand that thing. It's just something that goes back a long ways and hasn't changed one bit. Roget doesn't have enough words to convey what I think about that thing.

It's good to know negative gossip exists on both sides. "It was reported..." is almost as meaningful as saying "Some people believe..." in the realm of factual reality.

IAC??!! Boring? BORING?

This man is not boring! He's delightful!

Kerry, like Al Gore, only spent a few months In Country.

A Navy PAO Chief, lots of experience with Poo Bahs, told me Kerry was was the most arrogant bastard he ever escorted.
