Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the nomination of U.S. Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) as the next U.S. secretary of state.

“I welcome the nomination of John Kerry to the post of U.S. Secretary of State. Kerry has considerable experience and is a known supporter of the security of the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said in a statement released Saturday night. “John Kerry and I have been friends for many years. I very much appreciated the fact that six months ago, after my father passed away, he came to visit me during the week of mourning. I look forward to working together with him.”

  1. Are you kidding? John "Hamas" Kerry does NOT support Israel. His spouse has been openly supporting Hamas with his blessing since the "Heinz Foundation" was established. This came out in 2004 when he was running for Presidnt. He is an "Arabist" not pro-Israel, pro-democracy. He was the one who was tutoring Obama during the elections. The pro-terrorist team of Clinton, Baker, Kerry, and Obama is not a secret. Bibi, if I could I'd be voting you out! Isreal needs leaders not appeasers. Israel does not need mouths without any backbone. Stop being an Olmert.
