The USA’s Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro is a nice guy. It may be a bit challenging for him to swallow all the lies and hypocrisy of dealing with the Palestinian Authority, but he is loyal to his job.
Unfortunately for Shapiro, his boss, the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, is a moron.
“Last year, not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told guests at a Munich conference on Saturday, according the official U.S. State Department transcript.
I guess Kerry doesn’t follow news from Israel very closely since he’s too busy drawing up plans for Israel’s return to Auschwitz borders.
Only days earlier, the Shin Bet’s report on “last year’s terror” (that’s 2013 for the calendar-challenged Mr. Kerry), noted that terror in the “West Bank” had doubled…and that “not one Israeli was killed by a Palestinian from the West Bank”…but actually MANY ISRAELIS were killed by “West Bank” Arabs and over 44 wounded in West Bank Arab terror attacks.
In April, Shin Bet said, “One Israeli was killed (April 30) in a stabbing attack at Tapuah Junction (Samaria). The perpetrator, a Palestinian, resident of Shuka, Tul Karem, stabbed the Israeli, and then kidnapped his weapon and opened fire on IDF solders; there were no other casualties.”
In September, Shin Bet said, “This month, two Israelis were killed: an IDF soldier who was lured by a Palestinian illegal alien who had worked with the soldier in Bat Yam, to travel with the Palestinian to Beit Amin / Qalqiliyah, where he was murdered (September 21), and an IDF soldier who was shot dead near Hebron’s Cave of the Patriarchs (September 22).”
In October: “This month’s attacks recorded an Israeli citizen (October 10) who was stabbed to death in Brosh / Jordan Valley, and four casualties which included the wife of the stabbed man, another stabbing attack of a nine year old girl in Psagot near Ramallah (October 5), and a run-over attack against two soldiers near Bzaria / Nablus (October 5).”
In November, Shin Bet said, “Two stabbing attacks were noted this month. Both had occurred within the Green Line area. They resulted in the death of an Israeli soldier who was stabbed in Afula (November 13), and a female Israeli soldier lightly injured in Jaffa (November 22). Additionally, 3 Israeli citizens were injured this month: a female baby aged circa two sitting in a vehicle sustained moderate injuries caused by Palestinian stone-throwers near Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in Jerusalem (November 28); and a couple sustained light injuries as a result of firebomb thrown at their vehicle which caught fire near Teqoa (Judea).” (Algemeiner)
Yet Kerry’s run-in with poor fact checking doesn’t start with Israel. Just a few months ago Kerry said it was unacceptable for North Korea to get nuclear weapons, even though they have had them for years.
It’s not surprising that videos like this are popping up everywhere — John Kerry Solutions, Ltd.
