Kerry to Return Soon with ‘Framework,’ Says US Ambassador Shapiro

Kerry may be an idiot, but he is not stupid and he is not letting Abbas and Netanyahu block him from proving he is not a friend of anyone except Barack Obama.
Kerry's eyes are fixed on a piece of peace and not a paper of peace.

Kerry's eyes are fixed on a piece of peace and not a paper of peace.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry may return to Israel within a month with his “framework” agreement to push Israel and the Palestinian Authority off their respective cliffs, U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro said Tuesday.

“I hope he will return in another month so Washington can present both sides a proposal for a framework agreement,” Shapiro told Israeli radio.

If anyone thinks that Kerry failed in his visit last week because he didn’t unpack his “framework,” guess again. The Secretary of State left Israel for Jordan and Saudi Arabia before returning to the United States because he knows who is calling the shots in the Middle East.

It is not Mahmoud Abbas, who will do whatever the Arab League tells him to do, and it is not Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who so far has not defended a single red line on anything except to keep illegal African infiltrators from taking over the country.

Kerry knows he has no chance of convincing Abbas to retreat one inch and of convincing Netanyahu that the United States knows what is best for Israel.

When Kerry and President Obama say Israel’s security is their number one concern, it is true – but only through the lens of their dreamy-eyed telescope that sees Israel as better off with another enemy Arab state.

The “framework” will include all of the core issues and will be presented to the Israeli public and the Palestinian Authority so everyone can understand its character and intent for a final agreement, according to Shapiro.

In a not so subtle threat to Israel, he said, “I think Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu realizes that failure in the talks will make thinks a lot more difficult for the Israeli army.” That is the follow-up to Kerry’s open incitement on his previous visit when he rhetorically asked if Israel wants a new intifada by refusing to hand over more than half of Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley to the Palestinian Authority and expel tens of thousands of Jews from their homes.

The more Arab violence spreads throughout Israel, the more ammunition Kerry and foreign media have to convince the world – and more importantly the Israeli public – that Israel better raise its hands and agree to die slowly instead of putting up a fight and die immediately.

Kerry and Obama have said they will not force either side into an agreement. But that is exactly what they are doing, in the most Machiavellian way, and all of this is ostensibly for the sake of Israel’s security, which in Obama’s mind is conditioned on the United States deciding who is on first in the Middle East, just like it decided in Iraq, Libya, Syria and Egypt.

Sure, things did not work out well, but everything will turn out just right as soon as Israel signs a deal with Abbas.

The “framework” is going to be phrased in a way that if either side balks, it will lose the blame game. Prime Minister Netanyahu already has maneuvered Israel into a tight corner, surrounded by Kerry’s incitement, escalating Arab terror, the European Union and the specter of a boycott if it does not keel over.

But Kerry is not forcing Israel to do anything.

  1. What is Kerry doing to support peace in the region? He certainly isn’t condemning the constant bombing and attacks on Israeli citizens that happen to be occurring every day! The only strikes that Israel has made is to protect itself from this terrorism. Kerry needs to be educated and remove his anti Israel, arab/muslim/ shiite loving self from the situation. He is not helping, he has only been inciting more hate and animosity towards Israel and its people.

  3. Benjamin Rau says:

    He is a traitor to the American People.. and a proponent of terror in the Middle East… only one thing I can think of that would be a fitting reward to scum like Kerry…

  4. This land has been given to Israel forever by God. It is completely absurd to witness the whole world trying to give it away. When a peace like that IS made it won’t last as it won’t be a true peace and try’s to steal God’s land. The US desire to collaborate with Israel to verify that Iran is living up to it’s nuclear agreements would be the equivalent of Israel going along with the west’s fantasy that Iran is much farther behind than it is in it’s nuclear pursuits. The US proposal to patrol the west bank is also not a solid Idea as no one but the US will respect it; making the US a combatant rather than a peace broker. I believe that these types of decisions are likely going to lead to the war spoken of in Isaiah 17 or possibly another conflict, and a one world government will be set up eventually due in part to the demand for peace and economic concerns after it’s finish. An agreement with Israel and the Arabs at some point will be made and will start the 7 year tribulation period. Three 1/2 years into the tribulation period Russia and an Iranian lead Muslim confederacy will invade Israel and reach down to Egypt but will be defeated by the west. China in recent years has become more determined to set up a hegemony of sorts in Asia and the Pacific. Now they have expanded their “air defense identification zone” to enforce their claims on the Islands they “currently” say are theirs. Rev 9:16 and Rev 16:12 states that the nations of the east will invade and have an army of 200 million men. The forces of the west under the anti-Christ will then fight against the kings of the east in the valley of Armageddon. China looks now to be the leader of that eastern coalition. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

    Where are Dorothy and toto when you need the, but he did promise to go home and not return if he doesn't succeed by March.

  6. I seriously think it will happen….They are already calling different areas in the U.S (zones).The Book of Daniel there are 10 zones in the last day.

  7. Mildred Hitzig says:

    Israel must stand strong and must not give in to anyone. Israeli's know what is good for Israel. No foreign country intervenes in American politics, and if they would, then they would be asking the US to return the land to the indigenous people who were there first! Right?
    The smartest thing for Kerry to do, is to sign up as a volunteer in the IDF on the front lines.

  8. Uzi Kattan says:

    Framework to weaken Israel militarily and make its citizens more vulnerable to terror. Kerry is an enemy of Israel and is trying to impose impossible conditions in the pretense of peace. Obama is trying to dismantle Israel piece by piece. Israel's government needs to stop taking American aid which has too many strings (and a noose) attached .

  9. Uzi Kattan says:

    Kerry wants to harm Israel the same way he undermined the Vietnam war. Time for israeli swift boaters to sink his evil plans of his piece process.

  10. In my opinion; expelled from Egypt after being put to prison. the Palestinians do not want peace; they want a well built Nation Called Israel to occupy and call it PALESTINE. Kerry is wasting his time .

  12. Obama, Kerry, the EU, Abbas and the Arab Leage are taking advantage to the Netanyahu weak goverment, the people of Israel will pay hard for the misshandling Netanyahu's goverment.

  13. Rick Fortner says:

    Anyone who even talks to Kerry is a fool

  14. Rick Fortner says:

    He is also an enemy to America ,we don't want him or Obama or Hillary ,they do not speak for the American people
