THE FAR OUT ARABIST

Kerry Was Obama’s Envoy to the Muslim Brothers and Hamas

Simply put, Kerry is an Arabist, but his Arabism tends to favor the more extremist Arabs.

One of the men behind the Renaissance Project is Essam al-Haddad, a member of the Brotherhood’s business association, created to attract investment in Egypt’s economy. He is head of the Office of the President; and member of the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Office. With a doctorate in microbiology from the University of Birmingham, England, he has been influential in the Brotherhood’s outreach to the West, according to the Washington Institute. He met with U.S. assistant secretary of state Michael Posner in January 2012, and organized the Freedom and Justice Party’s participation in the Carnegie Endowment’s conference on democratic change in North Africa, held in Washington in April 2012. At the same time, literally, he became Muhammad Morsi’s campaign manager and, in early May, 2012, accompanied him to Alexandria to meet with prominent Salafist Sheikhs.

Besides his close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, Senator Kerry also knows the ins and outs of Gaza. Back in February, 2009, Foreign Relations Chairman Kerry was touring the devastation in Gaza after operation Cast Lead, and met with officials from the UN Works Relief Agency, the main provider of humanitarian aid in Gaza. According to CNN, during the visit “Islamic fundamentalist group Hamas passed Sen. John Kerry a letter for President Obama.”

Frederick Jones, the committee’s communications director, told CNN at the end of Kerry’s meeting with UNRWA chief Karen Abu Zayed that “she handed [Kerry] a letter addressed to the president of the United States along with other materials.”

Kerry spokesman Frederick Jones said the senator was not aware that the letter was from Hamas when he accepted it from Abu Zayed, and only heard media reports of its origin, which prompted him to relinquish it. The Israeli embassy commented that Kerry should not have acted as mailman for a group labeled as a terrorist organization by the United States.

But that’s what Kerry has done over the past four years. Oh, and there’s his immortal Wikileaks statement about Israel returning to Golan Heights to Assad, who is now “ready for change.”

It reads like an Onion item:

In November, 2010, a U.S. State Department cable leaked on the Wikileaks website, quoted Kerry as saying he believed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu needs to compromise and work the return of the Golan Heights to Syria into a formula for peace. Kerry made the statement to the Emir of Qatar in a February meeting between the two.

Kerry was referring to the Emir’s position that peace between Israel and the Palestinians could only be attempted once a Syria-Israel peace had been achieved, and that the Golan Heights was paramount in attaining that peace.

Kerry then added that he believes Syrian President Bashar Assad wants change, but that he must compromise and act like more of a statesman in order to attain it.

Also, Assad should try to avoid the kind of change that results in an abrupt cessation of breathing due to the adverse effect of a noose.

As Secretary of State we should expect more of the same, including the kind of in-depth judgment that would have made Israel give up one of its most precious strategic assets to a mass murderer about to be ousted in a bloody civil war. And including the subterranean efforts to undermine old allies of the U.S., replacing them with enemies of the West and of Israel. And including the efforts to legitimize Hamas as the real Palestinian authority – because Kerry has stated on numerous occasions that he does not believe Abbas has got what it takes.

  1. Charlie Hall says:

    The Republicans want Kerry's Senate seat vacant so that they can get Scott Brown back into the Senate. That is the real reason they went after Susan Rice.

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    " Israel returning to Golan Heights to Assad".

    Israel has offered the Golan to Asad numerous times.

    "Senator Kerry served as a reliable go-between for Obama in his developing relationship with the Muslim Brothers."

    Allen Dulles was FDR's go between to Hitler. Harry Hopkins was FDR's go between to Stalin. Henry Kissinger was Nixon's go between to Mao. I could go on and on….

  3. Yori Yanover says:

    Isn't there a Kennedy ready to roll out over there yet?

  4. Yori Yanover says:

    Charlie — Neither in Hitler's nor in Mao's case was the U.S. involved in tilling and planting a fascistic revolutionary movement in place of the current regime. The Obama plan for the Middle East — never mind Israel and the Palestinians — will result in an even worse outcome than the Bush 2 plan. Let me know when you want to see properties in Netanya, because America is losing this one.

    Yori is right on target but you, Charlie, are so deep into Arabism from you claiming to be married to one, that you can't see the forest for the trees.

  8. Thank You for reporting on John Kerry.

    It seems that his confirmation is a done deal.

    Another potential nominee is still possible to influence-Chuck Hagel.

    Hagel's nomination, already endorsed by the government news media in Iran, would change President Obama's "all options are on the table" from meaning a military option will be used if Iran doesn't back down from it's nuclear weapons program to all options that Iran can live with and promise falsely with negotiations are on the table.

    This change could mean the difference between life and death for millions of Iiran's.
    enemies real or perceived.

    I am surprised and shocked by Senator Chuck Schumer's position that he will have to study Hagel's past positions.

    If ever there was a time for Schumer to spend some political capital, now is the time to come out against such a terrible appointment.

    Today Senator Lieberman, along with many other Senators expressed reservations about Hagel.

    I expect the Jewish Press will pick up this story for tomorrow. But it's sad for me to see so little effort in these pages to stop this nightmare.

  9. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Yes.. Ted Kennedy, Jr.

  10. Bonnie Stein says:

    Can't you just feel the love… Yet all you liberal Jews out there voted Obama in and helped in once again hurt your people.

  11. May the Eternal One, the Holy One of Israel, gives wisdom, knowledge and understanding to all the political and religious leaders of Israel, the USA, and the Arabic speaking nations. May the L-d make us instruments of peace and justice.
    Pastor Frantz

  12. Marsha Ford Harriman Dailey says:

    BAD BAD BAD GET READY FOR THE SHAKING AMERICA.

  13. Ethan Perks says:

    And Sen Kerry has made the wrong choice each time in those 30 years.

  14. Sandy Alter says:

    will you guys print anything? wasn't Moshiach coming right after the Gaza war? Now Kerry is anti-Israel.Who takes this.
    crap seriously?

  15. Sandy Alter says:

    i heard this after Obama was elected the first time.But how many jewish lives did he save bankrolling and sharing "KIPPAT BARZEL"? no hakarat hatov among right wing nuts……like you my friend.

  16. He succeeds to the Irish Throne.

  17. From what I have read, I would say that Yori Yanover is a "mental case" and, dare I say it on these pages, a racist. The term "Arabist" is no less a racist term than would be "Jewist" if anybody would use that term instead of the more respectable, "Judeophile." What Yanover and most of the commenters I have seen here need to remember is that the primary obligation of every American politician is to put US interests first. As it is most of them do a lousy job of it, putting the desires of their funders at the top of their agenda, but you get the drift.

  18. Yes, Sandy, they will print anything. They used to run a weekly column by Rabbi Kahane and after he was killed, by one of his followers. Columnists in the JP applauded Baruch Goldstein after his massacre of 29 Palestinians at prayer in Hebron and provided rationalizations for the assassination of Rabin.

  19. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Hagel….Kerry….looks like O is trying to fill up his second Administration with Arabic-leaning secretaries. Something rotten is going on here….

  21. Rc Fowler says:

    Mr. Hall, I figured you being a Marxist and useful idiot–would have something ignorant to write!

  22. Rc Fowler says:

    Not Muslim leaning–but rather anti-Semites!

  23. Charlie Hall says:

    "you claiming to be married to one"

    When did motzi shem ra become mutar? My wife is Jewish. I've said that before in response to your accusations and you continue to repeat them. I await your retraction and apology.

  24. Charlie Hall says:

    Jeff Blankfort 'The term "Arabist" is no less a racist term'

    Actually "Arabist" does have a real non racist meaning.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabist

    It does appear, however, to be a huge stretch to apply the term to Sen. Kerry.

  25. Charlie Hall says:

    "was the U.S. involved in tilling and planting a fascistic revolutionary movement in place of the current regime"

    Technically true, but somewhat misleading. The US was involved in planting communist regimes in much of the area that Hitler y"s controlled. And the US had *previously* been involved in trying to prop up the Kuomintang in China, which at that time and for many decades later shared many of the characteristics of fascist dictatorships.

  26. Marion Bloch says:

    Ted Kennedy, jr. is not running. And Scott Brown may run, but he may not win. A lot depends on how he votes in the next three days.

  27. Liad Bar-el says:

    Excuse me Charlie, I have never seen a response from you from what I have read from your talkbacks. Now, that I have seen that what you said before was not true and that your wife is Jewish, I sincerely apologize and hope that you will accept my apology. Truely, this was a grave misunderstanding.
