Jewish Home Deputy Minister: Kerry Legitimizes Terrorism

By: JTA

Israel’s Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Eli Ben-Dahan has accused U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry of giving “legitimacy to terror” and misunderstanding Middle East politics.

“John Kerry, who warns us of an intifada, does not understand the Middle East, and he is not worthy to be a mediator when he goes back to his country. His words give legitimacy to this terrorism,” Eli Ben-Dahan, deputy religious services minister, was quoted as saying Thursday by Israel’s Channel 2 news.

Ben-Dahan reportedly made the comments at the consecration of a new synagogue in the West Bank settlement of Etz Efraim. His remarks followed a suspected terror attack in Jerusalem on Thursday evening in which a 2-year-old girl was wounded when her family’s vehicle was pelted with stones.

Ben-Dahan, a member of the Jewish Home party, said that the synagogue “strengthens our hold on the country, and from here we reiterate: There will not be a Palestinian state.”

Earlier this month, Kerry warned that a failure to come to a diplomatic accord with the Palestinians based on the two-state solution could lead to a third intifada.

“The alternative to getting back to the talks is the potential of chaos,” Kerry said in a Channel 2 interview. “Does Israel want a third intifada?”

Kerry, who will leave next Tuesday for Brussels and Moldova, will then fly to Israel for meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, The Jerusalem Post reported.

  2. KERRY IS ONE OF OBAMA’S PUPPETS! AND HE CAN ONLY DO HARM TO THE ISRAEL NATION! WE LOVE YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE AND WE CAN’T STAND OBAMA,THE IMPOSTER!

  3. Jenny Holcberg says:

  4. Ever hear of ‘speaking truth to power’?

  5. wake perry -Jordan is Palestine

  6. Yechiel Baum says:

    Irish Kerry legitimizes the IRA, palestinean ally, Nazi ally!

  7. Cody Flecker says:

    There is no Irish Kerry. Kerry's grand parents were known as Cohen. That's right…they went to bed one night as Jews and woke up the next morning as Catholics.. Many American Jews did the same. Kerry is just an idiot, and a stupid one at that.

  8. Anonymous says:

    John Kerry, like his predecessor Hillary clinton, was a huge and grievous mistake for Sec'y of State; his ignorance is only part of his problem. His unthinking and damaging remarks have been hallmarks of his arrogant illiterate and unpatriotic weltunschuang for decades. The 'best' that Obuma could select is indeed ugly and intellectually impoverished. The shame of course is on Obuma for his constant abuse of allies, his bizarrely ungifted selectees, and his mulish refusal to shoulder the blame for his peevishly stupid appointees. It grows wearying to point out the huge failures of this failed president, since there are so few things one can point to that are not disaster in the toaster, ready always to pop out the charred mess.

  9. Dave Wailer says:

    There is a saying that you should" keep your friends close and your enemies closer". Politicians are expedient and they play poker, the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing and the media depending who they are help to confuse the public. We can assume that the truth will revealed in time and good will surely overcome evil.

  10. The Palestinian Authority does not need to threaten an intifada. The US via Kerry is the spokesman for them. All the requests of the Palestinian Authority are presented as demands by the US.(OBAMA). It has been this way ever since he decided to be the savior of Palestine. He has always demanded concessions from Israel and basically nothing from the other side. Why should the US have aby say in this?? Is it because of US $ foreign aid or military equipment??

  11. Jacques Daniel. Kerry said "Does Israel wants a third Intifada" The answer should be we learnt a lesson from the dictator in Syria, He killed 100,000 and no one did anything.

  12. Jenny Holcberg says:

    The hole population of Israel is against freeing terrorists,so Kerry stop the pressure it isnt your pain,and you have no right to demand this
