Kerry – Don’t Go

Dr. Kerry

I’ll admit, I’m getting worried, with all the calls for Kerry to quit – or be fired.

It’s not that I think he is in any way competent or good at his job. And what he’s trying to foist onto Israel is worse than despicable, not to mention that it affects me personally, in a bad, dangerous way. But I have a conflicting and selfish motive for wanting Kerry to stay on the job.

I remember when President Obama was first elected. The pundits were concerned – after George W. Bush, how could Obama possibly match up to the material Double’ya gave them day in and day out? The best they could come up with at the time was mentioning Obama’s ears.

It didn’t take long for Obama to win a Nobel Prize for being elected, at which points the comedic floodgates opened.

But with all due respect to the President, he’s got nothing, and I mean nothing, on Secretary of State John Kerry.

Kerry is a pundit’s delight.

Look at the cartoons JewishPress.com have been publishing about him. Our cartoonist, Asher, he doesn’t even need to make stuff up. Kerry just opens his mouth and hands it over on a silver platter. I suspect Asher’s hardest decision in the morning is deciding how high to draw Kerry’s hair (it should be higher, Asher).

And those comments it rakes in.

Just putting the word Kerry into a title guarantees a 100 comments (see below). Admittedly, most of them are simply calling Kerry an idiot, but who cares, it’s guaranteed interaction and page views on the website.

At this point, I willing to bet that half the internet traffic on every Jewish news site in the world relies on John Kerry and his latest remark to keep their page views climbing.

So, with all due respect to the Emergency Committee for Israel, my fellow Israelis and the Republican party, Kerry, don’t quit – you’re just too vital to the internet economy, my job and this website’s traffic.

Can you imagine how much our traffic will spike if Kerry wins the presidency in ’16?

Now that’s job security.

Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US

No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?

For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.

It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.

For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.

Israelis now know Arab terrorism isn’t caused by Israeli occupation but by ending Israeli occupation

Anti-Semitism is a social toxin that destroys the things that people most cherish and enjoy.
