John Kerry Visits Hezbollah’s Lebanon, Sends Message to Israel

Kerry's friendly visit to Hezbollah dominated Lebanon was a message to Israel.

US Secretary of State made an unexpected visit to Beirut, Lebanon on Wednesday calling on the country to pick a president and end the political stalemate.

Kerry also spoke about the Syrian refugees, pledging more US money to help them, and addressed the Hezbollah terror group as a legitimate player in Lebanon and Syria.

And I particularly call on those nations directly supporting the Assad regime – in what has become a grotesque display of modern warfare by a state against its own people – I call on them – Iran, Russia, and I call on Hezbollah, based right here in Lebanon – to engage in the legitimate effort to bring this war to an end.

According to Lebanese law, the Lebanese president needs to be a Maronite Christian based on the fragile agreement that keeps the country from falling back into civil war.

But a new president hasn’t been chosen because Hezbollah either doesn’t like the candidates or simply wants to remind everyone of who is really in charge, so their associated lawmakers have been boycotting the meetings.

But to some it appears that Kerry’s visit went beyond the political push for stability in Lebanon or helping Syrian refugees, and it was actually a message to Israel.

By Hamas’s own admission, the formation of the Palestinian Unity Government (PUG) between Hamas and Fatah, is based on Hezbollah’s model in Lebanon.

In that model, Hezbollah terrorists participate in the government, while still getting to run their own very large and independent army. In reality, Hezbollah controls most of Lebanon.

Hilal Khashan, a professor of political science at the American University of Beirut, write in Middle East Forum:

Hezbollah has indeed gone a long way to achieving its objective of controlling Lebanon since its humble 1985 beginnings. It dominates the country’s domestic and foreign policy and operates a military machine superior to the national army. It has the final say on making governmental, administrative, and judicial appointments, and its interaction with Lebanese political groups has shown that it has no intention of truly assimilating into Lebanese political practices, not least since its Islamist Shiite orientation precludes its ability for a meaningful dialogue (as opposed to tactical alliances) with the Sunnis. Moreover, the Iranian paradigm of wilayat al-faqih, to which Hezbollah subscribes, baffles many critical-minded Shiites. Not surprisingly, Ahmad al-Asaad, leader of the fledgling Shiite party, the Lebanese New Option Gathering, believes that “we must get rid of Hezbollah in order to build a viable state.”

In the PUG model, like the Hezbollah model, Hamas will run much of the show behind the scenes and also get to keep its independent army and weapons.

Lee Smith points out that:

Hamas officials boast that they are now employing the “Hezbollah model”—i.e., becoming a political party that avoids responsibility for governance, while also maintaining an independent military organization that engages in terrorism. In other words, the PA will serve as legitimate cover while the Islamic resistance continues to wage its war of liberation against Israel. After all, Washington continues to fund the Lebanese Armed Forces, even as it is common knowledge that the LAF is under Hezbollah control. So, why wouldn’t the White House fund the PA?

Kerry appears to have been sending a message to Israel, that just like the US can work with Lebanon, pretending that Hezbollah terrorists are not in charge, the US can also work with the PUG, also pretending that the Hamas terrorists are not in charge.

Lebanon is in an official state of war with Israel.

  5. This administration has shown its colors about Israel and Jews. I hope all the American Jews voted for “O” are now happy. They were told so by Jews like me and others, but their marriage to Democrats and the Left will never lead to divorce until we, too, are attacked here at home. This administration has stooped so low that their noses and foreheads are being scraped off. For the love of God, please remember Judaism is not all about just social justice. That is part of it, but not nearly all. If we continue to be stupid about this administration, the enemies of Jews will soon be upon us.

The hypocrisy is off the charts. He may have done some good things for the people of the U.S., but his arrogant and anti-semetic ways when it comes to Israel are a shonah! Kerry is NO friend of Israel’s or the people that live there (Jewish, Muslim, Christian, or any other religions in the region).

    Someone take out Kerry, Obama, and all those liberal backstabers out of office and return them to conservatives that love Israel and defends her from all of this injustice!

    Why did our people here in the US vote for these liberal idiots?

  59. Mr. John Kerry I think I sense & appreciate that you feel that you need to step up to take it upon yourself to become a mediator between disagreeing states countries & organizations with Israel . However Israel has no interests in developing relations with those people whom advocate , support & Harbor Terrorists . It is commonly known throughout the World that anyone whom seeks to eradicate a race of people simply because they suffer with the disease of Hatred , has no place in the mainstream of politics . I along with countless others think that you need to re-assess your goals and your responsibilities as a congressman .

  60. I predict that America will abandon Israel. They only have the Lord.
    Our next president will most likely be just as liberal as he is – conservatives are are a small minority now.

  61. poor clown! Next elevtion they will
    pay for this

  62. Ira Abramson says:

    Send him back to OBama

  63. He is as big a idiot as obama

  64. Josh Morgan says:

    You can’t put all the blame on liberals; you can however hold anti-Israel, liberal leaders accountable. Also, you can’t assume that all liberals hate Israel. It would be like me saying that all conservatives hate America. It is counter-productive and very childish. I’m not defending Kerry or Obama by ANY means; I’m just stating a basic fact.

  65. Kerry your behaviour is very childish action. I am susprised that You are mediator for peace but your behaviour have lost your face. Go hide yourself it’s better

  66. Why the visit to Hezbollah may be You want negotiate peace with Israel. I think You have burned yourself as negotiator. It’s finished

  67. Faye Olson says:

    Kerry is on the wrong side. I am glad Israel rejects his proposals.

  68. LEBANON IS NOW IN CHAOS. KEERY GET OUT. YOU ARE MAKING THINGS WORSE AND ABETTING THE FORCES OF EVIL. LET GOD WORK OUT THE WEST BANK. FOR NOW KEEP IT NEUTRAL. GO TO TIBET AND TRY TO DO SOME GOOD FOR THE TIBETIAN PEOPLE.

  69. Someone please put a shoe in his and Obama and Hilary’s mouth !!!

  70. Jim Beekman says:

    The Swift Boaters told the truth about this idiot.

  71. Leon Chattah says:

    Mi mensaje a ese Kerry no es de buen gusto para publicación… :(

  72. I think everyone in the Obama Administration has already shown that they support Radical Islam in all its forms rather than support Israel and/or Christianity. The Administration itself has advisors who are members of the Muslim Brotherhood, we have Muslim Senators, and Obama has many muslim advisors. We know what his priorities are and they are not for a free America.

  73. If ur as smart as u “think” u are u better stand with Israel. God dont punish us for what our elite officials do.
