On Feb 1, 2014 John Kerry threatened Israel with an economic boycott, if Israel does not accept his proposals for a Palestinian state. Take the behind the scenes view Kerry’s recent tour of Israel where he shares many of his unique and original solutions at stops in Jerusalem, the Jordan Valley and Tel Aviv.
According to Mother Jones, the video, part of campaign being run by the Yesha Council, which represents the Israeli settlements and receives regular funding from the government. On its website, the Yesha Council, which has previously mounted efforts to undermine negotiations for a two-state solution, explained this campaign: “The main message: Israel’s deep friendship with the US does not require us to give in to pressures that lead to solutions that threaten our country and its people.” And its tool is mockery. The site these groups set up—John Kerry Solutions Inc.—features the video but also lists everyday questions for Kerry and his supposed answers. Here’s one: “I fell off a ladder while trying to hang a picture and now I’m lying on the floor with a mild concussion and I cannot call for help. What to do?” Kerry’s answer: Hang the picture lower.
In other words, if even Mother Jones, on the extreme left end of the spectrum, is having a laugh, it has to be good…
Looks like nobody likes the Boston Brahmin, not even people who agree with him.
In an earlier video, in Hebrew, an Israeli sitting on a toilet discovers there’s no toilet paper. No need for him to worry, Kerry comes to the rescue, and he is holding in his hands the solution to the Israeli’s problem: have a a porcupine.
