Will Kerry Be On Hot Seat at Obama Meeting?

The problem is, John Kerry may have almost nothing to show for all of his efforts, and a massive bill to boot.

I do not envy Mr. Kerry. I cannot imagine why on earth he would want the job that he has. But since he does have it, I can only wish him luck when he sits down with Mr. Obama today.

I suspect he is going to need it, and I hope the discussion keeps both men busy enough for long enough that America will now leave well enough alone here in the Middle East — and especially here in Israel.

    Hmm ,0bama will be upset that kerry hasn’t made ISRAEL give up to the fraud ” palestinans” absurd demands ! Ooh kerry !!

  2. I don’t think that Hussain Obama will be happy that Israel hasn’t be destroyed!

  3. Yori Mendel says:

    Oh I hope so. May they both get a Hemorroid, and Hemorrages. Their Brains already seem to have, by their constant Denial s and History Revisionism.

  4. Kerry and the president will sulk that blackmail will not work.

  5. Karen Bryant says:

    Who cares what the white house has to say. They lie about everything so why listen .

  6. Who cares,,,,,,????

  7. Sheli Shahal says:

    I care because I live in Israel!

  8. This is child’s play compared to IRAN!! They are NUCLEAR and the president thinks he is negotiating with them!! WAKE UP!!

  9. Sad that America’s best ally in the middle east has been so put upon and without real cause. Israel wants to live in peace and the arabs want nothing less then to destroy her. It’s just that simple but POTUS & Kerry don’t get it – I guess arab money can even buy a POTUS….

  10. From the 1000 hours, how much hours Kerry was in the air?, what a waste for nothing!, who will pay this Kerry or the tax payers?.

  11. "persona non grata" is how we feel too!

  12. Sientje Seinen says:

    you are much too kind and generous concerning John Kerry, He chose to take on this job of being a peacemaker, but unfortunately he couldnt see past abbas craftiness

  13. Hana, your whistling Dixie, as they say south of the Mason/Dixon line! Obama will NOT leave Israel alone. He is received in no other country as courteously as he is in Israel. His Presidency is in the Tank. The upcoming 2014 mid-term election will see his Administration sink further under water. He needs a victory. He will press Israel to it's destruction – for HIS – benefit if he can. He has 3 years to push for Sol Lewinsky's America.
