Kerry Postpones Next Trip to Israel

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters Monday he is postponing what was supposed to be a visit to Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week and will return to the region after the Thanksgiving holiday.

He did not explain reasons behind the new timetable but did state, “It looks as if I probably will not be able to get there over the course of this weekend.”

Given his undiplomatic remarks last week, threatening Israel it will face a “third Intifada” if it does not do as he says, nothing will probably be lost by his remaining out of Israel for another week.

Iran also has been a sore point between him and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and Kerry tried to some smooth talk Monday. He said of Netanyahu, “I have great respect for his concerns about his country. The prime minister should express his concerns and he has every right in the world to publicly state his position and defend what he believes is his interest.”

But he added that the Prime Minister is wrong. “Nothing that we are doing here, in my judgment, will put Israel at any additional risk,” Kerry said.

    Blessings to John Kerry, Palestine and Iran!

  2. Israel cannot afford a nuclear Iran, it’s just that simple. It’s my opinion that it’s very likely too late, but if Israel has intelligence that shows that a strike could set Iran back then that’s what I would suspect we will see in the not too distant future. These talks that drag on and don’t actually stop Iran from making nukes are really only helping them to complete more of their work towards their likely goal. As I have pointed out, of course Israel is serious, they have no choice. We have all seen what extreme Islamic individuals do, they murder people in cold blood; even their own people. What makes anyone think that Israel can just sit by and take this big of a chance? It seems insane to me, yet that’s what were witnessing. No one has good enough intelligence at this point to know that Iran will not be able to complete their weapons program, so in my humble opinion it has to be shut down while we discuss ways to be sure they don’t get a weapon. Other than that I’m afraid there is likely going to be a strike. My own leaders are having talks that would have been helpful about a year ago, but now I have to wonder if there is even enough time for the talks to conclude. In 2012 I wrote a booklet that talks about some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the seven year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so 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

  3. Nail the door shut…don't let the cowardly Kerry back in; he holds no brief for Israel, will do as much harm as he can in furtherance of his own agenda!

  4. Kerry should read a little Jewish and Arab history, including Israel history. Maybe he should check into the murderers just released by Israel and the $50,000 paid to each murderer. Or, the $4000/month paid by the PA to the prisoners released. These people do not want peace! They want to murder Jews. They say say no to all agreements. They never had any land. It belonged to the Ottoman Empire and later under British Rule. By the way, some Jews lived In Palestine before Israel, also. So, Palestineans includes Jews, also and they accepted the agreement. Arabs said no to everything offered. They do not deserve anything. Hitler was appeased! Guess Kerry should know what happened then.

  5. Kerry and Obama are no friends of Israel.God is telling these two shisters that he will not tolerate the dividing up of his land Israel.Look what he did to the mid west of America recently.The largest amount of damage that they have ever recorded.The American people deserve better than this,they are on a collision course with the creator God and he never loses.Obama should be impeached for fraud and lies and Kerry should be sacked immediately for his bias view of Israel.Never in the history of politics has America ever treated Israel so bad,but God is about to show America that he means business when it comes to his people and his land.If I was Obama and Kerry I would immediately fall on my face,ask Gods forgiveness,and then do everything possible to help Israel.Then maybe God will change his mind on America.

  6. Kerry is worried, the congress will and insist to increase the sanctions to Iran, he will try to stop, that is why he will not come, good, he should never come to Israel, Netanyahu should give a kick in his ass.

    DONT ADMIT KERRY. LET HIM LAND AT THE GAZA AIRPORT OR TAKE HIS CHANCES VIA CAIRO AIRPORT SINCE HE BETRAYED BOTH ISRAEL AND EYGPT. When it comes to Jews, the USA and its historically anti-Semitic state department always does its utmost to kill the Jews and mislead the Jews. currently lead by the irish Kerry. yesterday, it was shown on TV news that it is the irish who started the KKK and and arayan brotherhood and in the clover is hidden the swastika. Irish was also allied to the Nazis. Obviously, queen Elizabeth doe snot want them to have their independence since they do not deserve it. ARAYAN SOUNDS LIKE AN IRISH TERMONOLGY.
