PA leader Mahmoud Abbas and US Secy of State John Kerry.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will be back in town on Tuesday for another round of pressing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to give Mahmoud Abbas another boost in confidence by surrendering more sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

Kerry also will meet with the Palestinian Authority chairman, but there has been no mention of a joint meeting.

Whenever the Secretary of State comes, he wants something in return for having taken his precious time to talk with the Prime Minister , who is his biggest obstacle to giving him at least one supposed achievement before he leaves Foggy Bottom when President Barack Obama exits the White House.

The United States has adopted the Palestinian Authority position that settlements are the reason for Arab violence, which the Palestinian Authority calls the “resistance,” and that Jews even thinking about praying on the site of the First and Second Temples is the “rationale” for jihad.

That leads Kerry to his logical conclusion that Prime Minister Netanyahu must make more concessions to keep Abbas from being hanged, in effigy if not in reality, by the same type of Arab terrorists who threw Hosni Mubarak and then Mohamed Morsi out of power. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi appears to be next in line.

The Secretary of State has tried to show “balance” by saying that Abbas must reduce incitement, as it committed to eradicate when it signed the Oslo Accords two decades ago. Since then, each “good will concession” by Israel has been followed by a harder line from Ramallah, accompanied by violence whenever Israel does not concede enough.

The wave of violence, highlighted by Arabs stabbing Jews in the back, even children and women, has subsided, which is perfect timing for Kerry to fly in and claim credit for the relative calm.

Hs was involved in recent talks with Jordan and Israel to place video cameras on the Temple Mount to make sure Jews don’t even look like they are praying and that Muslims do not “pray” with rocks, firebombs and guns to use against their “devil.”

Kerry will look for an area where he can squeeze Netanyahu for more concessions, and that means “Area C,” a vast region in Judea and Samaria that most people believe is under Israel sovereignty.

The truth is that Arabs in Area C, the home of nearly 100% of the Jews in Judea and Samaria, enjoy the same status as the Arabs in Gaza before the Intifada began in the late 1980s. They are not under Israeli control.

They are in charge of their own affairs except for rooting out terror, which no one except the IDF can do. It means they can travel freely not only within Judea and Samaria but also in all of Israel after going through what Arabs and anarchists claim are “degrading” inspections at checkpoint, no less thorough than at every American airport.

The relative good life in Gaza ended with the “success” of the intifada that replaced the “occupation” with a corrupt terrorist organization hell-bent on destroying Israel. A flourishing economy, which Gaza never even dreamed of under Egyptian rule until they were freed from Cairo’s yoke in the Six-Day War in 1967, has transformed into a Hamas fiefdom to suck shekels from hapless Gazans.

In Area C, Israel already has given up most of the vacant land, allowing the Palestinian Authority, with funding from the European Union, for agriculture and for building, without permits,

So how can Kerry make trouble this time?

He will insist that the IDF stop providing security for Jews on the highways. He will demand that soldiers pack up and stay at their bases instead of rooting out terror.

  1. Kerry said he didn’t see the rationale for the Paris attacks. How is it he doesn’t know that the Islamic religious leaders call for death to Western civilization and its trappings such as freedom for women, dancing, music, wine, fine cuisine and freedom of thought?

  2. Am I the only one who is sick and tired of seeing Kerry's hangdog face? He has no business on the international stage. Every time he opens his mouth, America sinks lower in world opinion. If he needs so squeeze something, he should step into the supply closet and squeeze his little Kerry.

  3. Kerry is out of reality. The mess on the Temple mount has nothing to do with the disputed territory, There was nover disputed territory before 1967 and as an exemple the murder of Hevron Jews in 1929. What the fake palestinians want is to purge entirely the Jewish nation of Israel. Kerry should stay home and get busy with the other nations who are killing by the thousands of their citizens.

  4. Pray people for the strength of God to protect Israel from this person that is so far out to be mindless in all he does. I am so sick of his interfrence in the nation of Israel. I know he is following orders and the one giving the orders is not doing good for our nation or the nation of Israel. I know God is in charge but please Lord let your will be done and soon so we will not need to look upon the face of evil. Makes me want to stop eatting because of nausea……..He is the most pathetic looking person I can imagine.

  5. I say build away BiBi. Neither Obama or Kerry have any say in where Israel builds or settles in Israel. They obviously don't have a Bible to read. If they did..they would see the outcome …GOD WINs, not Abbas, not Obama, not Kerry, not the Musilims, not Russia ONLY GOD . As Gods chosen people the JEWs win
