ECI Statement: “Time for Kerry to Go”

The Emergency Committee for Israel released the following statement on Secretary of State John Kerry’s use of the term “apartheid state” to threaten Israel:

On Friday, Secretary of State John Kerry raised the specter of Israel as an “apartheid state.” Even Barack Obama condemned the use of this term when running for president in 2008.

Yet this was no gaffe. Secretary Kerry’s musings on the Jewish state’s dire future have become a regular feature of his public remarks. His latest prediction follows other statements in recent months that have in effect threatened Israel — never the Palestinians — with a list of disasters should his diplomatic efforts fail: violence, isolation, delegitimization, boycotts — and now “apartheid.”

It is no longer enough for the White House to clean up after the messes John Kerry has made. It is time for John Kerry to step down as Secretary of State, or for President Obama to fire him. And it would go a long way toward repairing the damage Kerry has done if his predecessor as Secretary of State, who is the likely Democratic Party nominee for president, explained why this kind of rhetoric had no place in her State Department and why it will have no place in her presidential campaign.

  4. Omar A. Omar says:

    USA and UK are responsible and must pay for their mistake, they inserted an illegal state in the ME which is Israel making the ME unstable and full of terror and violence and it will keep so as long as ISRAEL exist, Palestine must be freed and occupation ended as a first step to create peace environment in the ME . USA and UK are responsible for all Israeli crimes as much as Israel is since they always support Israeli Aggression’s.

  5. It has for many Years been my firm belief that Politicians are a special kind of beings. They are able to talk endlessly without saying anything. They are able to stand erect without a Spine. And they prove that medicin are wrong in considereing “braindead” the ultimate proof of a person being dead.

  10. Take action Bibi .. Get rid of the evil for good just like they tried to do to y’all…

  11. Even worse than that! If you do make peace they will kill the Jews anyway because their book of garbage tells them to!

  12. Omar A. Omar Israel is not an illegal state. “Palestine” isn’t even a real state.

  13. i’m so ashamed of our current administration BLESS ISREAL

  14. WE AGREE! HIS BIG MOUTH IS NOT HELPING ISRAEL, BUT TO THEIR ENEMIES !!

  15. Stay strong, Israel. No peace with terrorists.

  16. Ira Abramson says:

    Agreed. Sell ketchup.

  17. kerry and your boss obama kush min touckas

  18. end arab occupation of jewish land NOW

  19. j.Kerry is one of the biggest fools on the planet.

  20. Kerry is an idiot like his boss

  21. Kerry is a traitor. He needs to stop spending our money trying for peace in Israel ..Ask God!! Israel will remain Jewish and there will be no peace with the wild man who kills in the the name of Allah and Allat his wife and worship a stone!!!

  22. I just don’t get why such a strong % of jews vote democratic .I get asked all the time why. My response is I don’t know I’m not one of them

  23. John Kerry is an idiot. He never should have been given the position he was given because he can’t handle the situation.

  24. What has changed since the first talk of a “Palestinian state” and others have treated it seriously from the US?

  25. It is time for Kerry and Obama to go together with American Jewish communities who vote democratic or give money to this scum.

  26. Just say No! To Kerry,,!

  27. Kerry what a joke!!

  28. KERRY JUST DOES NOT LEARN – EVERY TIME HE OPENS HIS MOUTH HE HAS DIARRHEA…

  29. Lize Bartsch says:

    Its been all threat and intimidation game from the beginning. I told you many times already, when the Muslims could not win Israel at war they started a new type of warfare: psychological warfare. Gd has protected you against the one and will protect you against the other, don’t give in!!! Everyone knows pretty well that when the enemy gets half your land they will demolish the Jewish nation from within. Giving up land is NOT an option. Muslims have 22 large countries to accommodate all the so called Palestinians, they will not do that because they keep them posted there to irritate the Jews until they give in. Anti Semitism is on the rise all over the world, even in America. Obama is not now what he pretended to be, he is showing different colors. The Bible says a tree is known by it’s fruit, not it’s words.

  30. Kerry was an ass back in the Nam days, just ask any Nam vet, he is an ass in every political dance he does, he’s an ass in his present form of “the Peter Principle” and in now way should be representing We The People! Speak for yourself John!

  31. For the life of me I don’t get it. I think the Jews who voted for Obama, never listened to his word and are not interested in the real news

  32. Miguel Maia says:

    Sad words again! He should live in Israel!

  33. get the hook and get rid of him POTUS!

  34. Ditto on all other comments.

  35. Go away, Kerry (“Scarry”!!!) rsrsrs!!!

  36. Kerry is just the messenger. He carries out the policies of his administration.

  37. Kerry=messenger from BO-remember that

  38. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Well overdue but Obama’s silence speaks loudly

  39. USA is trying uselessly to revive a dead horse of so called peace talk.medrline Albright,condaliza rice,senator Mitchell have made similar attempts in past without any success.Mohamadans by birth are terrorist like ismael and Mohammad.Peace talk with them is betrayal of world community and state of Israel ,so stop it now for good and build third temple today on Temple Mount.

  40. Don’t insult idiots, please. He is a moron!

  41. If John Kerry isn’t careful G-d is gonna take him out!

  42. Izzy Snow says:

    Send him packing!

  43. David Adda says:

    John Kerry and all of the liberal democrat scumbags, all elected with the support and money of American Jews! When will we learn?

  44. kerry da ferry is as phony as one could be. I’ve cut myself shaving worse than he was injured (sic) in viet nam for his purple heart.

  45. probably put his wife’s ketchup on the scratch so it would look bad

  46. Kerry doesn’t have to stay in that position if he knows it is wrong.

  47. It is time for Kerry to do something else….like playing chess…reading history books or maybe….knitting!!

  48. Polly Dorst says:

    Send him Home and we will deal w/ him.. How dare him Threaten Israel w/ a

  49. Ruth Craig says:

    You guys run your country the way you want. You know what you need and what to do about it. It’s time for the USA to take care of our own problems.

  50. Karen Bryant says:

    Who is he to threaten anyone!

  51. Bill Dunn says:

    tell Kerry to go home and send someone else.

  52. Susie Gilpin says:

    I agree Kerry should go. He is a dangerous idiot.

  53. Time for Kerry to GO!

  54. Kerry needs to be ” Evacuated to the East”

  55. His Anti Semitic face is now revealed to all of us

  56. Tom Sproule says:

    Why the one sided leverage applied only to Israel?Is it because of oil?I respect and support Israel’s decision.

  57. Cheryl Engel says:

    Kerry has always been dangerous in and for America. Why do you think most of us were horrified when he became Secretary of State. It was the main reason Bush became President instead of him when he ran for President. I agree with you.

  58. He’s a big dummy being used by a bigger Dummy!!!
