Kerry Back in Town to Force Release of Terrorists

Kerry may force Israel to free more terrorist; the problem is he won’t take them with him when he leaves.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry pushed the emergency ejection button on his Paris talks with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov over the crisis in Ukraine and flew into Israel to try and force a last-minute agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority for the release of more Arab terrorists.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has stated no more concessions will be taken unless it is “clear” what Israel will receive in return, but it is anyone’s guess what Israel could gain except for Brownie points in the White House and another dinner with Kerry, for what it’s worth.

And motorists are being smacked with the occasional closing of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 pm. Israeli time and during Tuesday morning’s rush hour, 8-10 a.m., so Kerry can have all the of the road it himself.

The Palestinian Authority newspaper Al-Quds quoted Kerry as saying he told PA officials he will free the terrorists with his own hands if he has to.

Most Israelis, from Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to even the dovish media with the exception of Haaretz, would not mind if Kerry would take a walk, a very long walk and even better off a short pier.

The Palestinian Authority also is not so thrilled with him. Its officials have created a cold air mass before his arrival, saying that they really are not interested in extending the talks that Kerry initiated last July, but that can be discounted as playing hard to get.

Kerry will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu Monday evening and then travel to Ramallah for a discussion with Mahmoud Abbas.

“Secretary Kerry decided it would be productive to return to the region,” State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Translation: Kerry is roaring into town with ammunition on both shoulders and will tell both sides that they will bear the wrath of Obama himself if they don’t agree to help the president make a fool out of himself.

No one really knows who is on first anymore. Kerry and his media groupies have created the fiction that Israel agreed last July to free several Arab terrorists who are card-carrying Israeli citizens.

Netanyahu was quoted this past December 31 saying he never agreed to free them as part of the fourth and final batch of terrorists, but the truth really doesn’t matter anymore. Freeing them has been accepted as a fact by Kerry, the Palestinian Authority, and the media, so the truth really does not matter anymore.

Israel reportedly has offered to free more than the last group of 26 terrorists, which is not likely to happen unless he card-carrying Israelis will remain in jail. The Palestinian Authority supposedly has demanded that Israel free several hundred terrorists, and all of this, of course, for the grand prize of a few more months of charades masked as negotiations” over when to end the follies.

Kerry said Monday afternoon, “I think it’d be inappropriate to get into any kind of judgments about what may or may not occur or happen because it’s really a question between the Palestinians and the Israelis, and what Prime Minister Netanyahu is prepared to do. So he has – he is working diligently, I know. I just literally talked to him 15 minutes ago. And he’s working at it.”

Kerry and Netanyahu spoke Sunday night and again Monday morning, and they obviously were not just chewing the fat.

Not by coincidence, Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog is meeting in Amman Monday with Jordanian King Abdullah, the first official Israeli visit since Israeli soldiers killed a Jordanian judge at the Allenby Bridge crossing when he allegedly attacked a soldier and tried to grab his weapon.

Kerry is banking on the usual gambit of threatening Abba and Netanyahu that whoever says “no” will be blamed for the collapse of his stage show. At some point, and that point is not far down the road and may already have been reached, the Palestinian Authority will say, “Blame us all you want. We have the United Nations in our pockets.”

Netanyahu so far has been too chicken to be blamed because the only thing he has in his picket is the Book of Psalms, but he hasn’t used it very much.

  25. Dov Grauman says:

    The time has come for Mr. Netanyahu to tell our dear friends Kerry and Obamah to sod off. He must show them the borders of Israel as they are defined in Torah. That is it . No negotiations. No discussions and no release of murdering scum. You no like, speak to G-d. Face to face preferably

  26. I stopped buying Heinz ketchup and all Heinz products. Kerry is a puppet of obama. obama is no friend of Israel

  27. I know Israel will be glad when this administration is gone in the U.S. I felt safe as long as the U.S was helping Israel. Tommy.

  28. No … no …. no …. to any convicted terrorist release. Our non-negotiating partners cannot deliver peace and have no constituency!

  29. By the time Obama and his idiot crew are gone, Iran will have nukes, thanks to our current administration which has no “stones” so to speak. Israel may eliminate this,however, with a pre-emptive strike on the mullahs in Tehran with their nuclear facilities being destroyed.Hopefully, because our Muslim President will do nothing but make a fool out of himself and our great nation. At least it was great before he took over the reins.

  30. The State of Israel must kill all the Arab terrorists, including those who are imprisoned, because the Arab terrorists are making war against Israel, so that they are war enemies, and it is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded Israel to kill all the war enemies. The war enemies must be killed immediately, and not submitted to trial. The State of Israel must kill the Arab terrorists, instead of arresting them.
    Binyamin Netanyahu must explain to Barak Obama and to all nations that God gave to Israel all the Land of Canaan, which includes all the Palestine, as it is written in the Bible, in Genesis 12:6-7, 15:13-21, 17:1-8, 17:19, 26:1-5, 28:10-14 and 35:9-12 and Numbers 34:13-29 and Deuteronomy 3:8, and that Israel possessed that land since the year 1466 BCE, and that the Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE, so that all the Palestine belongs to Israel, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and the Arabs are invaders and must go back to their land, that is Arabia.
    The State of Israel must not make pact with the Palestinians, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 23:32 and 34:12 and Deuteronomy 7:2 that God commanded Israel not to make pact with the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called "Palestine", and it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess all the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called “Palestine”. Therefore, the peace talks with the Palestinians must cease immediately.

  31. Why is Kerry in Israel?

  32. Earl W. Littlefield Jr says:

    Like Putin, Obama uses criminal means since he cannot accomplish anything legally……

  43. He really wants Israel to commit suicide so he can secure his " Nobel Peace Prize"…….disgusting!

  45. Kerry is not a leader of Israel, so if Israel “obeys” the US, Kerry, and any non-elected foreign politician then that’s on Israel. But just as Kerry and company would love to control Israeli policy, etc., it is no better when American conservatives, Christian fundamentalist, or anyone try to bait and manipulate Israel to support foreign American agendas. It doesn’t matter who it is, including myself. Israel for Israelis.

  49. Ewa Bury says:

    kerry cannot force anybody including ISRAEL to do anything. get the f… off mr kerry.

  50. Anonymous says:

    Haven't understood since start of these "peace" talks why Israel is expected to make ANY concession to the PA, esp. releasing savages like these terrorists who have murdered many Israelis in cold blood, just to serve their badly deranged religious ideology.

    Doing so seems to imply that these people were somehow wrongly imprisoned, or that Israel has something else to be guilty for. Why in the world Israel would cave to ridiculous 1-sided pressure from the clown-like Obama/Kerry team, people who most American Jews understand very well have nothing but contempt for Israel and support for the Islamists?

    Trust me, Obama's whole view of the Mideast "problem" is figuring out ways he can diminish Israel and elevate its enemies (think Iran), before he (hopefully) leave office in 2016.

  51. Exactly what I said earlier: The US should host these serial killers, and let them free on their soil if they so damn sure, that these deserve free life.

  52. Adam Green says:

    Thats like Israel pressuring US to free the Oklahoma bomber or the Boston Bomber…. is Kerry a retarded fool?

  53. The real terrorist sits in the White House.

  54. Kerry follows Obama’s ‘wisdom’ that ‘The Israeli people do not know what is in their best interests’

  55. Aidy Moore says:

    Kerry has a face like Mr Ed the talking horse, oops, I ment ass!!!

  56. Mark Brown says:

    Kerry and obama pro muslim go to hell ..

  57. Donna Ritter says:

    God’s will be done! God Bless Israel!

  58. John Morris says:

    Tell Kerry to leave and don’t come back. Him and Obama total idiots

  59. Netanyahu put in prison Kerry as terrorist.

  60. Run Guo says:

    Israel will release all terrorists, long as Kerry take them with him to and stay in America.

  61. Maynard Miller says:

    Another dinner with Kerry? Perhaps they intend to serve Pork Chops. It seems everything Kerry offers to Israel is useless.

  62. Al Goltzman says:

    A diplomat should be an unbiased instrument of neutrality, not someone who thinks he's a heavy weight who is trying to bully an ally into a submission spelling that ally into destruction of that state. It won't happen there the way that it did in Egypt.

  63. Cookie Steinberg Kabakoff says:

    Just what Israel needs more free terrorists! Makes no sense.

  64. Stand strong Israel .Shalom Shalom..there are American's praying for your country and Psalms 122:6 for peace of Jerusalem..

  65. Carmen Marina says:

    Amen, Al! Kerry's an America-hating 'limousine liberal' and an embarrassment, to boot.

  66. Uzi Kattan says:

    The traitor Netantahu will sell out Israel and free the terrorists while allowing the Jew haters Obama and Kerry to renege on freeing Pollard. Obama and Kerry can't be trusted neither can we trust Netanyahu.

  67. Mary Hale says:

    Don't release any more terrorists

  68. Mary Hale says:

    Don't release any more terrorists..send Kerry packing back to the USA

  69. Uzi Kattan says:

    I would have given Kerry the terrorists in body bags.
