What Could Possibly Still Be On the Table?

Kerry Repeats

I’ve got to believe that today’s story about Kerry trying to restart Israeli final status talks with the Palestinian Authority is the product of a delusional mind.

Let’s step back a second, and ask what could possibly still be on the table after the summer we just had.

1) PA control over the Jordan Valley?

Nothing would make ISIS happier than no more Israeli forces poised to defend Jordan from invasion and takeover. Not to mention no Israeli forces protecting Israel’s border.

Would the State Department really abandon Jordan that way?

2) Israel pulling out of parts of Judea and Samaria?

Nothing would make Hamas happier than Abbas no longer having IDF protection, so they can more easily overthrow the PA there too.

Would the State Department really abandon Abbas that way?

3) Israel releasing the recidivist terrorists it just recaptured?

Nothing would make Hamas happier or more popular on the street than the release of its terrorists.

Would the State Department really strengthen Hamas that way?

I know there are cynical people that would say the answer to all these questions is yes.

But does anyone really believe the State Department is so delusional, shortsighted and determined to hurt America’s only real ally in the Middle East?

OK. Don’t answer that.

  1. Anyone from the Vietnam era knows what a liar and coward Kerry is….and we have all learned a great deal about our Prez.
    Yes, they believe.

  2. It's really really hard for me to fathom liberal's like Debbie Wasserman Shultz who defend Barack Obama's policies right to "the T"…and keep voting for him…no matter how he disses Prime Minister Netanyahu, undermines Jewish values, overlooks anti-Semitism under their very noses. Are her constituents deaf, dumb and blind???Please somebody, explain it to me???

  3. Ridiculous to call Kerry a coward, as anyone who served with him in Vietnam can attest. Which of the current Republican potential presidential candidates can match his war record?

  4. Bibi must resign, Naftali Bennett, the next Prime Minster of Israel

  5. Sientje Seinen says:

    I suggest to make an even trade ship those palestianians who are tired of war to the states and ship those americans who vote for Obama to where the palestinians live and Kerry can be their spokesman as he loves to talk peace.

  6. Sientje Seinen says:

    I think Bibi is doing a splendid job under the circumstances and that the Lord is with him. during this time of trouble
