US Secy of State John Kerry will soon be on his way to London to meet with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

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. 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).

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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
