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.

  3. Oriel Bufton says:

    That’s about right! The man is a sandwich sort of a picnic,

  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.

  7. John Kerry is an incompetent hack. # supportIsrael

  9. Gene Strong says:

    Muslims.do not.want.peace.with Israel
    Muslims.want another . holocaust
    Muslims are the new nazis.
    Do not bargain with the devil.
    Israel should.remove all.muslims from Jerusalem Gaza and west bank as well.as destroying Iran nuke facility.

  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
