Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Israeli-Palestinian relations Wednesday, criticizing the nation’s top diplomat for blaming Israel for the region’s problems, the Washington Examiner reported.
“Like the resolution that John Kerry advanced at the UN (Security Council), John Kerry gave a skewed speech against Israel. For over an hour, Kerry dealt obsessively with the settlements and almost didn’t touch on the root of the conflict — the Palestinian opposition to a Jewish state in any boundaries,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office read.
Secretary of State John Kerry suggested Wednesday that the United States had at least indirect input into the United Nations resolution condemning Jewish settlements, pushing for it to be crafted in a way that would not cause the United States to reject it.
“We made clear to others, including those on the Security Council, that it was possible that if the resolution were to be balanced and it were to include references to incitement and to terrorism, that it was possible that the U.S. would then not block it,” Kerry said during an appearance at the State Department.
Israeli officials have accused the Obama administration of playing a role in the resolution.
Secretary of State John Kerry now has decided, instead of stonewalling, to get to the bottom of who deleted a whole portion of a State Department briefing video that included former spokeswoman Jen Psaki implicitly acknowledging that the State Department lies about stuff.
“The Secretary said he wants to dive deeper into this, look more into what happened, and try to get to the bottom of what happened,” said a State Department spokesman, who last week said the investigation had come to “a dead end.”
Here’s a pretty good summary of the whole mess from a few days ago that gives an idea of why Kerry relented.

They think we… Continue Reading

Secretary of State John Kerry this morning dived straight into the land of Catch-22, claiming that an Israeli attack on Iran would give the Iranians cause to justify their pursuit of nuclear weapons in the first place. “Iran would then have a reason to say, ‘Well, this is why we need a bomb,’” Kerry told… Continue Reading
I don’t know – how does he think he can get away with saying something that simply isn’t true? I guess because they get away with such things all the time. The administration keep claiming it wasn’t trying to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program. But officials, including President Obama, repeatedly said and suggested that’s exactly what they wanted. Here’s some… Continue Reading
