Jewish Home Knesset Chair to Kerry: You Are a Hypocrite

"By your own hand you have raised expectations to a dangerous level - one that might cause the whole region to spin out of control."

The Jewish Press has obtained the following letter, sent to Secretary of State John Kerry by Ayelet Shaked, Chair of the Jewish Home Knesset faction:

To: United States Secretary of State John Kerry

Dear Sir,

In light of the current situation that you have brought about, I feel that I simply cannot be bound by the restraints of “politically correct” wording, and I therefore will allow myself to convey my following message to you in the most straightforward fashion:

Mr. Secretary of State – by forcing Israel to capitulate to terrorism by releasing murdering terrorists with so much blood on their hands that the United States would never dream of releasing them if it was their own citizens whom they murdered – you are not only being extremely hypocritical, but are actually dabbling in experimentation and gambling, by putting me and my children’s lives at risk.

Your forcing us to release these terrorists with actual blood on their hands is made all the more absurd, cynical and vicious by the fact that your country refuses until this day to release Jonathan Pollard from jail, despite the unprecedented term he has served thus far.

Mr. Secretary: the price of releasing over a hundred convicted murders will be borne by my family & my people, not by you.

How will you carry the burden of the terrible price towards which you are leading us?

You have forced us into peace talks during a period of time that the entire Middle-East is in chaos, without realizing that by doing so, you have foolishly put us in an impossible situation, in which we cannot and will not make any concessions. By your own hand you have raised expectations to a dangerous level – one that might cause the whole region to spin out of control once those expectations are proven unrealistic, like so many times before.

The past four years in Israel have been as quiet and peaceful as ever. Therefore, I suggest to you that you perform your job in a much more effective and relevant fashion by focusing your attention on Syria and Egypt, where people are actually getting slaughtered.

Sincerely,

Ayelet Shaked, Member of Knesset
Chair, HaBayit HaYehudi Knesset Faction

    This woman deserves a medal. So wonderfully polite and yet so direct. More importantly, the absolute truth. Unfortunately, Kerry and his ilk will shrug this off if they even bother to read it. For most of these people, the truth is not what they want to hear. They have written their own truth and will ignore reality. I know this though, Godd will call each and everyone to account one day. I also know this. People like Kerry, Obama, Abbas and co will also ignore this age old warning, until it is to late for them to change. It is written that this will happen.

  2. Schwartzi says:

    Its a shame this will fall on deaf ears

  3. its a good letter but I don't understand what you mean by saying:

    good for her….this administration needs to be called out for what they are

  11. Chen Agiv says:

    Ayelet Shaked, I salutes you.

  12. USA kills them with drones. Israel has to release them. There's hypocracy for you.

  13. Go for it Ayelet! It is about time the we start to show spine.

  14. Alon Alexander Volfman says:

    correct. John Kerry is pushing my country and the whole region to chaos.
    The coward administration of Obama cant solve the REAL problems of the middle east, so he comes and bullies the only truly US friendly contry in the Middle east.

  15. Pat Davis says:

    You are so right, Alon.

  16. Pat Davis says:

  19. Alon Alexander Volfman says:

    I reccomend everyone reading this, to write his/hers oppinion, if there will be enough media buzz, this message will arrive to its destination.

  20. Dani Gamss says:

    Agree with every word.

  21. Shana Hovsha says:

    So articulate and to the point. Kol hakavod Ayelet! I sent a similar letter to John Kerry last month and received confirmation that he had received it. If only our words could burst the bubble of illusion that so many are stuck in!

  22. Mark Meadows says:

    Please don't judge all Americans by the unmitigated stupidity and arrogance demonstrated by the Obama administration. We're not all idiots, believe me… Israel has been a tried and true friend to the United States, and I, for one, am eternally grateful. Thank you — and again, please don't judge all of us by the actions of a few.

  23. Shana Hovsha says:

    Go Yori!!!

  25. Avihu Sitton says:

    כל הכבוד! המכתב הזה צריך לזכות ליותר חשיפה..

  26. Cody Flecker says:

    I noticed that Pollard was not released. Are the Jews in Israel and the United States this insane to release murderers with real blood on their hands as a gesture to the Palestinians to get them to talk peace? Why is Israel bribing the Palestinians? Why can't the Palestinians come as equal partners to the peace table? Bibi Netanyahu should have told Obama and Kerry F..K you. Israel is its own Nation not a satellite of the USA. That's if Netanyahu and the rest of Israel had some real balls, which obviously they do not have.

  27. Elad Stern says:

    כל הכבוד שאנה ! תמיד עם היד על הדופק :-)

  28. Adi Tani says:

    people who wants killers out of jail and makes them there celebrity do not want peace. they are makeing an isalamic radical state that honor death.
    give me one arab kindergarten wich the kids in sing a song for peace?
    none!
    in Israel they all do. and that's the all story.

  29. David Curiel says:

    Excellent article! Ayelet Shaked should be our prime minister.

  30. A letter that says it like it is. True and to the point.

  31. Lior Avidan says:

    releasing murderes will not bring peace!

  32. Shana Hovsha says:

    שהקב"ה ישמע את תפילתנו!!!

  33. An excellent letter to a 'man' held in disdain by everyone who actually knows anything about this coward, liar and dishonorable individual who is a willing and compliant agent of US duplicity and ignorance of the facts, the Obama administration. With such leadership in Washington Israel has never been in greater danger.

  34. Lawrence Fisher says:

    Very true. I do not agree with about Pollard. If any person living in Israel was found guilty of stealing secrets, I would say let them rot in jail. Anat Kam should spend the rest of her life in jail, as one example.

  35. Warren Lutz says:

    The sane leaders of the world are calling the U.S. out on it's absurd policies (or lack thereof), something our citizens and government are all too ignorant of and/or incompetent to handle.

  36. I completlly agree with this article.

  37. Pearl Ezekiel says:

    This Game has been played for the last 65 years, and will go on until, we Jews wake up and see that we have no one to trust but G-d. I just wonder how long that will take, and how many more Jews will have to die for Peace.

  38. Jean Perles says:

    מר מזכירת המדינה – על ידי לאלץ את ישראל להיכנע לטרור על ידי שחרור מחבלי רוצחים עם כל כך הרבה דם על הידיים, כי ארצות הברית מעולם לא הייתי חולמת משחרר אותם אם זה היה האזרחים שלהם שהם רצחו – אתה להיות לא רק מאוד צביעות, אבל בעצם מתעסק בניסויים והימורים, על ידי הצבת אותי ואת הילדים שלי בסיכון

  39. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Bravo Ayelet Shaked!
