Kerry Lands in Israel, Heads for 2-Hour Meeting with Netanyahu

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry landed at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport around 3 p.m. Thursday, bringing with him the usual traffic headache for motorists who are kept away from the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway while  his cavalcade takes him for a meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Kerry is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority  chairman Mahmoud Abbas later in the evening and has brought in his suitcase a “framework” agreement.

No one really understand how this “framework” is different from “outlines” and previous roses by another name that state the same core issues between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and which both sides were supposed to have been talking about for about a decade.

This is the 10th time since last February that Kerry has travelled to Israel. He succeeded in resurrecting the “peace talks” after three years in which it was buried and now is trying to keep his diplomatic racecar speeding ahead  in neutral.

The only tangible results of his efforts have been the Palestinian Authority’s winning the freedom of 86 terrorists, with another 18 to be freed in the spring, and lots of  Israeli announcements but nothing beyond that for new homes for Jews in Judea and Samaria and in areas of Jerusalem where the Obama administration considers Jews to be “illegitimate.”

  1. O'h yes, more from the emissary of the POTUS Liar in chief; we can certainly trust what the cowardly Kerry has to say!

  2. I hope this two hour meeting consisted of Kerry sitting waiting for 1.75 of those two hours and that Netanyahu took the last 15 minutes to tell him what shallow ignorant people are in the Obama Administration. I am still burning from the picture of Netanyahu being led out the back door of the White House past the garbage on one of his American visits to this solipsistic "current president".

  3. He needs to go back home just causing trouble for the Stae of Israel.

  4. Carolin Knox says:

    If Bibi runs out of things to say he can contact me

  5. Sydney Faber says:

    The only thing he's achieved is loads of miles on his Air Force One account. Time to tell him to stay home.
