Israeli Gets Real About Kerry Peace Mission

Okay, readers of this website know that I’ve been saying for months that the only discernible animating force to Secretary of State Kerry’s crusade for peace between the Arabs and the Israelis is the prospect of a Nobel Prize.

Kerry, who always figured the Gods had big plans for him, failed in his quest for the presidency. And so, after careful positioning, he got himself appointed Secretary of State by President Obama. And now he wants to paint his bit of graffiti on the wall of history by doing what not even Kissinger could do: make peace in the Holy Land between the sons of Jacob and Ishmael.

But nobody except Kerry wants this. Nobody thinks the time is right. The Israelis are dealing with mortal threats from an Iranian bomb and Hezbollah missiles in Lebanon. They don’t need to be giving Kerry concessions on a deal with the Palestinians so he’ll help save them from the Persians and their terrorist allies.

And so, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon put it, as Israelis sometimes do, bluntly:

Secretary of State John Kerry — who has come to us determined and is acting out of an incomprehensible obsession and a messianic feeling — cannot teach me a single thing about the conflict with the Palestinians

The only thing that can save us is if Kerry wins the Nobel prize and leaves us alone.

These remarks were made in a private conversation. We’ve already heard what Obama says in private conversation about Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

And yet, the White House was in full foot stomping mode. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made his own highly inappropriate remark, which didn’t have at least the excuse of being off the cuff:

The remarks of the Israeli defense minister if accurate are offensive and inappropriate especially in light of everything that the United States is doing to support Israeli’s security needs. To question Secretary Kerry’s motives and distort his proposals is not something we would expect from the defense minister of a close ally.

Um, everything that the United States is doing to support Israeli’s security needs? Really?? What kind of nonsense is this? We’re being nice to you Israel, and this is how you treat us?

Let’s be clear. America’s support for Israel is not a favor. Israel is the only -the ONLY – reliable, and even rational thinking ally we have in the entire region. We need Israel. Now, not as much as Israel needs us, but we need a strong ally in this vicious, unstable neighborhood.

But this is how Obama thinks. It’s personal. Really, as he suggested to former French President Sarkozy, he’d rather not have to deal with this Israel stuff. So they’d better at least be more appreciative!

  1. The Israelis, unlike the Americans, have no trouble standing up for themselves, and their country.

    Unlike peace prizes conferred now or in the future, Barack Obama and John Kerry earned this.

  2. Not to worry Vladimir is just a plane trip from swooping in and making Barry and Johnny look even more foolish as he dotes on Israel with promises of support, business deals and arms.

    1. Yes, Russia has no love or patience with the Islamists and would be the perfect ally of Israel.
      The Iranians might not fear the US now, but they would tremble in their sandals at the thought of Russian tanks at their border.

      1. Breaks your heart to see Obama and Kerry emasculate this great
        country for a worthless ideal of their own making and even more
        useless ornament a Nobel Prize. Yes I’d love to see Putin put the fear of God in both these childish rank amateurs.

  3. Thank you Keith….well said.
    Jay Carney was insulting and if Kerry gets a Nobel it can hang next to Obama’s on the backside of nowhere.

  4. The only peace islam will have with Israel will be when its sanguinary faithful turn it into a graveyard. If I forget thee, Oh Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its cunning. Actually, I’m a southpaw, but I’ll save that to sucker-punch anyone who wants to abandon Israel.

      1. I have thought about that whenever I use or hear the saying. I remember my old Latin days when I ran into sinister, -tra, spell checker is messing with me; can’t type the neuter ending. I got a lot of grief in the old days but I wouldn’t change being “wrong” handed for anything. I heard once that all the lefties who went to WWI came home alive.
        Unfortunately, both WJBC and BHO are southpaws. I had no idea a minority had to make room for other minorities; one morally challenged and one competence challenged.

  5. well said as always, Keith.

    I’m embarrassed at how the Israelis are being treated by this administration, especially right after Obama’s graceless non-memorial memorial of Ariel Sharon.

    Obama and his minions are actually blaming Israel for daring to disagree with them. the idea that this crowd knows more about the security situation in Israel than Netanyahu, Ya’alon, and other Israeli leaders* is just silly. it takes self-regard up to a level we rarely see, even in politics.
    *except for Livni. he knows more than Livni. so does my cat.

  6. Spot on, Keith. Although he understated the obtuseness of Lurch, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon is absolutely correct. The Obama regime wouldn’t shed a tear if Israel was obliterated by the Islamonazi’s of Iran.

  7. To egg Kerry on, I bet Barry always whips his peace prize out to spit shine it when Lurch is by the hacienda. Do my bidding Luke and you will have one of these too some day. Maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh.

  8. Bibi needs to call Kerry out for the traitor he is. And then he needs to tell Obama to pound sand.

    War is about to break out, and I fear America will be on the wrong side.

    Let peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you. Be master over your brethren, And let your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, And blessed be those who bless you!”

    Genesis 27:29

    1. Another revelation from the Gates book:

      Gates writes that he found Netanyahu so offensive that he once tried to get him banned from the White House: “I was offended by his glibness and his criticism of U.S. policy — not to mention his arrogance and outlandish ambition — and I told national security adviser Brent Scowcroft that Bibi ought not be allowed back on White House grounds.”

    2. “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).

      America, which was created in God’s name, has blessed us b/c we have been a friend to Israel. I do believe since The Occupyer of the Oval Office has been doing everything he can to make Israel heel to his wishes, the Lord is going to let this country go down.

  9. The timing of Lurch’s visit could not be worse for him. Right after sanctions are frozen which Iran publicly announces its victory in maintaining their enrichment program. And then, as if to rub crap in our face (America) the PM of Iran lays a wreath, honoring the mastermind of the Lebanon Marine barracks bombing which killed over 200 American soldiers. Only an illiterate Obama supporter would be stupid enough to not understand Israel’s outrage of Obama sending Lurch to Israel at this time.

  10. John Kerry is just like the rest of Obama’s court jesters…self-serving, lying mongrels who are incredibly negligent and inept.
    Israel is right not to trust American intentions as long as Obama is occupying the Oval Office. The Obama administration hates exceptionalism and wants to see it flattened. Since both Israel and America are exceptional at their core, it stands to reason that Obama and his nasty posse do everything they can to drag us and them down.
