The ‘A’ Word

And of course Apartheid Israel is a bold faced lie. A big lie. The Big Lie of the 21st century. The kind of lie used by Hitler’s Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

This does not mean that I support what he has been doing in Israel since his tenure has begun. I don’t. Even as I believe his desire for peace is sincere, his efforts are futile and a waste of time. That should be obvious to everyone by now.

But neither do I believe his mistaken use of words like ‘Intifada’ or ‘Apartheid’ are anything more than a misguided attempt to push that agenda forward. An agenda of peace that he believes is in everyone’s best interests. It would be – if it were possible. But as I said it is obviously not under current conditions. I therefore think Kerry should expend his efforts elsewhere. But I also think we ought to accept his apology and move on.

  1. and we must recognise jerusalem and give it to the jews as their capital forever than turnining a blind eye to.kerly u must resign because u dont know the motives of islamic race are.they want israel to dispear just like ottoman empire sucked roman empire 1453.

  2. Sadly, Kerry usually speaks what he is thinking, or in this case what his boss is thinking.

  3. Excuse me BUT a diplomat , if you can call Kerry that, should think ten times before opening his mouth. No excuse.

  4. Dani Katz says:

    He has ‘foot and mouth’ disease and when he has both feet in, he is full of it!

  5. Janek El says:

    problem is that while misstating your case you never were Secretary of State. Big Difference! In other words no comparison.

  6. He was just checking to see if it would fly. It obviously did not. Don’t trust that snake.

  7. Daniel Lang says:

    Not the first time he has “misspoken.” Won’t be the last.

  8. He is an idiot, and should resign

  9. Anna Bishop says:

    Freud is rolling over in his grave.

  10. Kathy Lee says:

    He knew what he was saying!

  11. HE IS STILL”STUPID”FOR SAYING THAT!! DUMB ASS!!!! HE’S MAKING THINGS (WORSE!! ) STURING UP !! TO DAM ‘DUMB TO BE SAYING ENYTHING!!!!

  12. Total BS you’re not convincing anyone, Kerry is a fool.

  13. WELL SAID, “ROMEO JEAN CLAUDE”
    IT’S FOR SURE! KERLY IS CLUELESS,
    OF THE ‘HISTORY THEIR!! ISLAMIC RACE IS TO ‘RULE THE WORLD!!!! ONE DAY!!

  14. על התנצלויות כאלה אמרו חז”ל :..” אפרטהייד בלגינא – קיק, קיש קרי”.

  15. Those words are his legacy as secretary of state.

  16. He is but a puppet, parroting the State Dept.’s and BDS Movement’s TRUE party line…

    The only thing the administration is afraid of is waking up the clueless Jewish Americans who voted in these enemies of Israel (the jewish vote).

  17. Oh I thought the a word was for ass aka Kerry

  18. Yeah he miss spoke! Like obama when he said 36 times “if you like your insurance..you can keep your insurance..period!”

  19. Give this to Kerry, Obama and the Palestinians!

  20. Oh yea ?????? And who pressured you to make this post ????

  21. Not what u said the other day !!!!

  22. The Democrats are always on the opposite side of Israel. The Christian religious right Republicans have always been the ones to go-to-bat for Israel, and demanding that the U.S. stay pro Israel.

  23. Joseph Green says:

    THIS POLITICAL MISTAKE NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED!! FIRE THAT ASS!!

  24. Some Will Fall For Anything

  25. Yeah right. Why don’t they ever misspeak to say what a remarkable oasis of democracy, kindness and accomplishment Israel is, surrounded as it is by hostile, hateful, tyrannical neighbors whose only notable accomplishment is to plot the Jews’ demise all day long?

  26. Lize Bartsch says:

    …..and other fairy tales

  27. Clo Clo says:

    Do not be deceived…this ADMIN most certainly has AN AGENDA!!!!!

  28. Ariel Claude says:

    He said it, period. That’s enough. If he misspoke, it’s his problem like Donald Sterling is paying for his privately spoken speech. Kerry should get out if he can’t control his month…it isn’t the first time he has misspoken on Israel. Get out of office, Kerry, you’re awful like your predecessor, Hillary Clinton.

  29. Kerry has a habit of the miss speak. Perhaps he should strive to be a wise man and keep his mouth shut.

  30. Rohan Menon says:

    Oh really now…

  31. Excuses alone will not undo his words. Kerry has graduated from the BHO course in back tracking and Ignoring the obvious.

  32. Karen Bryant says:

    This administration seems to misspeak quite a lot.

  33. Face it he id ls insane

  34. Ronnie Pleet says:

    It was anger and real feelings that came out

  35. and you are so perfect in all you do ???

  36. 2 brains, one’s lost & the other went looking for it! The terrorists should have sewn his mouth shut!

  37. Ruby Harris says:

    He didn’t just misspeak

  38. Well then you are deliberately delusional. Kerry and his boss and Hillary all believe that the Jews are invaders in Israel and are there only because of the Holocaust. They believe the myth of the fraudulent “palestinians” They do not read history so they do not understand that the Jews are the indigenous people of Israel and that their denial of facts and history puts them in a position of denying the right of self-determination for Jews which makes them racists against the Jews. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/a-tour-and-census-of-palestine-year-1695-no-sign-of-arabian-names-or-palestinians

  39. Misspoke? More like put his foot in his mouth! Moron.

  40. Misspoke? That’s how wars get started you idiot! Resign ~ you’re a buffoon.

  41. Sara ~ Kerry’s mistakes have the potential to start wars. Your comment to Ariel is not well thought out.

  42. Peggy Green says:

    Sure he did but shouldn’t a diplomat of the stature of Secretary of State have more control over his tongue? Or is it just a character flaw that started in Viet Nam?

  43. His boss is pushing the idea, so why wouldn’t he?

  44. Sure he did. Clueless twit!

  45. His true feelings came out and now he is lying

  46. Did he misspeak when he recently threatened the Jewish state with more BDS?

  47. Notice he never condemns the throat cutters that bomb and kill and kidnap Jews.

  48. Out of the abundance of the heart our mouth speaks. I truly believe that what came out from his mouth is what he believes.

  49. Hector Ramos says:

    The mouth speaks what’s in the heart!

  50. Hector Ramos says:

    Retracting, is a convenient commodity at this point.

  51. this man is a disgrace.

  52. More than just an oops I didn’t mean what I said, “….out of the abundance of the heart, speaks the mouth”. Luke 6:45

  53. More than just an oops I didn’t mean what I said, “….out of the abundance of the heart, speaks the mouth”. Luke 6:45

  54. Jennifer Moe says:

    Keep believing that! Making friends with snakes can have a very bad outcome!

  55. he new exactly what he was saying this is the kind of man he is. can,t trust him.

  56. Yeah, right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reports of a dead baby, a devastated family, and indications of a gloating attacker.

In all the years (and this week it’s exactly 14 years) since our daughter was murdered, we have not found a single Arabic-language post, article, tweet or speech condemning that attack in the center of Jerusalem or the killings.

Everyone is angry at the ongoing Arab terrorism, but what does murdering a baby have to do with protecting Jewish lives or furthering Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel?

The phenomenon pushing limits of Orthodoxy to the extreme left has no chance of becoming mainstream

There needs to be clarity about what is & isn’t acceptable in Orthodoxy; That should be the debate.

Imperative to get world’s Jewish billionaires to support Jewish education like their other projects

No legitimate Orthodox body in the States or Israel accepts “Open Orthodoxy.” They went too far.

Obama is not anti Israel. He’s just misguided, perhaps blinded by his desire to force a peace treaty

{Originally posted to the author’s website, Emes Ve-Emunah} The inevitable finally happened. Rabbi Avi Weiss has dispensed with his prior refusal to call his female ordainees ‘rabbis’.  I challenged him to stop dancing around that title with made up titles  (like Raba and Maharat) and he finally rose to the challenge.
