State Dept: No Guarantee Arab League Recognize Israel Even after Deal

State Dept. Spokesperson Jen Psaki (R) with Secretary of State John Kerry. Psaki revealed Kerry himself has no trust in the promise of regional acceptance he's been lavishing on Israel.

Psaki said the proposed U.S. framework will be the basis for negotiations for a final agreement. Meaning, when in doubt, parrot something, nobody is listening anyway. Except the pesky reporter was listening, and he pointed out the final agreement won’t address the Golan Heights, because it has nothing to do with a Palestinian state. He insisted on referring again to Psaki’s boss, who “says the minute this agreement is signed, 22 Arab nations and 35 Muslim nations will recognize or hold out the hope” of regional recognition of Israel.

Will they, or will they have new demands once Israel makes the big cut in its own flesh?

Psaki retorted, “Well, Michael, that’s a figure of speech. It doesn’t mean the minute he steps off the stage of an announcement that anything will be implemented.”

Please, Jewish brothers and sisters, if ever there was a warning given out by our State Dept., it this last line. It was just a figure of speech.

I don’t know how long is the line by now of people abandoned by the Obama Administration: the poor, the sick, the unemployed, I could go on and on. Do we really want our own shiny spot on that line? Do we really want to give up everything only to be met by a shoulder shrugging Secretary Kerry who tells us with his boyish smile that it was just a figure of speech?

The reporter continues to push, inquiring whether there’s there any discussion with the Arab League of amending their initiative, especially since, for the time being, there isn’t even a singular Syria to which Israel would be able to return anything, much less a border area close to where Al Qaeda and Hezbollah are busy killing each other. Is there any talk with the Arab League to amend their initiative to suggest waiting at least until there’s a government in Syria?

Psaki: There is not a discussion of amending the API.

Of course there isn’t, because what difference would that make? The purpose of the API is not to normalize regional relations with Israel but rather to weaken Israel so that it would be easier to annihilate when the next opportunity presents itself. Kerry Knows it, which is why it wouldn’t even cross his mind to convince those 57 Arab and Muslim states to give a little.

When American Jews, including Israel’s best friends and allies, including Orthodox individuals and institutions, are asserting that Kerry has our best interests in his heart; when they rebuke those of us who point straight at the false promises coupled with brute threats emanating practically from everything Secretary Kerry is saying to us, here in Israel – point them to Friday’s press conference. Tell them the Secretary of State wouldn’t even bother to suggest to the Arab League that it reconcile some of its absolutist demands, even temporarily.

He knows there’s no hope there. Why bother?

    Dear Mr. Kerry
    When we decide to hire someone for a position we check and see his or her achievements prior to our decision in their case. Israel has a glorious record of developing a barren piece of land full of swamps and disease into a flourishing area in Medicine, Technology, innovation, business, start up's and more… The Arabs in the region have a dismal record.
    Their countries are not flourishing, there is chaos, corruption and endless human suffering.
    Success in my view should be duplicated not curbed. Your plan to transfer areas of Judea and Samaria to Arabs can not bring good results. The Arabs are not able to manage their little areas they already control currently ('State of Failure' Jonathan Schanzer 2013) without dipping into corruption and mishandling.
    We the Jewish people living in Israel and in Judea and Samaria are not virtual people and our existence must be acknowledged prior to any negotiations. We have a right to be on our ancestral land that has Jewish relics thousands of years old. The solution is simple create autonomous areas with Israeli guidance and supervision under Israeli sovereignty. Israel brought goodness to the area and that LIGHT (Knowledge) should be spread not limited.

  2. Liviu Blumenthal says:

    What does someone who went to Vietnam carrying a camera so he can immortalize his non actions in a war-like environment so he can later brag about all the action he did not actually participate in but which his camera captured from nearby positions, know and/or understands about a nation's struggle to survive? If in Bill Clinton's words, his boss in "an amateur" — Kerry is just the message carrier of an amateur with no either knowledge or real input on what's actually going on. The only exception from before however is that others carry the cameras now.

  3. Rick Fortner says:

    Kerry is like Justin Bieber no one takes him serious,he is a legend in his own mind

  4. Lisa Kamins says:

    correct. yet the US state dept is always bothered, upset or angry with Israel. could it be that it is filled with Jew haters?

  5. Alan Rockman says:

    Oh, gosh, there’s the Glenn Frey meets Hermann Munster Swift Boat boy with Obama groupie bimbo eruption herself, Jenny Psaki aka Psocky, Psocky…

  6. Maynard Miller says:

    I certainly hope that no one in Israel is naive enough to believe those thugs will ever, I repeat, ever accept the right of Israel to exist. Don't depend on Kerry. He is a phony. I can't even understand why you consider giving away land that God gave to the descendents of Jacob. The agreement will be on paper but it should be hung in the toilet so that it will be useful for something.

  7. Tell the Arab league to abandon all the lands and cities they stole from the Jewish people around the year 637 before anybody talks about the year 1967. And then tell them to dismantle all the mosques that were illegally built overtop the original Jewish temples. And when they're done restoring what they have stolen or destroyed, they can have a seat at the table to discuss the future. Or they can continue what they're doing, and they will choke on scorching sands and the ashes of the dead.

    When you tell them all of that, make sure to use your Dirty Harry voice so they know you're serious though. And bring a few earthquakes and famines to really get the point across. Maybe it's best to leave this to the professionals.

  8. We are focusing on our Creator as it seems enemies are surrounding us and He is the only hope.
