Kerry Wants Pro-Hamas Turkey to Fix Israel’s Peace with Fatah

Sec. of Foggy Bottom Kerry is chock full of ideas, such as selling pro-Hamas Turkey as a quick fix for the beloved peace process. Two Problems: Israel and the Palestinian Authority don’t buy it.

Palestinian Authority and Israeli officials have immediately rejected a brainstorm announced by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that Turkey act to reach for the forever elusive end of the rainbow and reincarnate the peace process.

Two weeks after President Barack Obama said in Israel that there is no sense in trying to bring Ramallah and Jerusalem together if both sides don’t show they want to do so, Kerry is playing the willing robot to put everything in place for instant peace.

All Israel has to day is pay off the families of Turkish terrorists as a reward for trying to kill Israeli commandos who stopped their Mavi Mamara ship from sailing to Hamas-controlled Gaza to break the maritime embargo against terrorists and arms.

One other thing, said Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu: Israel must remove all “embargoes,” meaning that Hamas should be allowed to bring in whatever it wants, such as medicine, which flows by the ton every day through land crossings; and everything that can be found in any store or mall, which flows by the ton every day through land crossings; and anti-aircraft guns and explosives for suicide bombers, which do not enter through land crossings. Maybe they come though tunnels. Just maybe.

Kerry is faithfully carrying out his duties as Secretary of State, where talking is the key to the world’s woes and can fix all problems, such as the Iranian nuclear threat, a corrupt Muslim fundamentalist regime in Egypt and war crimes in Syria.

Israel and Ramallah are not biting the bait and won’t take it unless Kerry comes up with a hefty bribe, and anything is possible.

The immediate reactions before Kerry’s plane to Israel was even in the air were something like, “Are you real?”

With Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan falling over him self for winning an apology from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for Israeli commandos defending their lives, Kerry played up on his ego that makes him think everyone in the world wants to be his friend.

Someone in the State Dept. forgot one little detail: Mahmoud Abbas heads the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and is not interested in the rival Hamas terrorist organization getting support from “friends of the West,” such as Erdogan who two weeks ago announced for the ninth or tenth time he will visit Gaza.

Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki said Turkey would be “ineffective” and that it cannot be a fair negotiator between Israel and the Palestinian Authority because it still is at odds with Israel, making it susceptible to buckle under American pressure to be nice to Prime Minister Netanyahu.

There are two other reasons he did not state: One, Erdogan is pro-Hamas. Two, if the United States support the idea, it is suspicious.

Al-Malki told Palestinian Authority radio that it prefers that any diplomatic maneuvering come from the Quartet, where the United States is only one of four players. The others are the European Union, which wants to keep its welfare payments to the PA from going up in smoke; Russia, which wants to protects its investments in Iran and Syria; and the United Nations General Assembly, which last November accepted lock, stock and barrel Abbas’ demand to recognize all of his political and territorial demands from Israel.

As for Israel, International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz told Voice of Israel public radio that he didn’t even believe that Kerry would suggest Turkey as a peacemaker.

“I think it is a baseless report. I personally am not familiar with any such decision,” said Steinitz after the State Dept, on Friday boasted that Turkey “has the ability to encourage Palestinians of all stripes to accept Quartet principles and move forward.”

“With the Palestinian Authority, we can negotiate directly, so there is no need for mediation. If anybody does mediate it will be the International Quartet,” said Steinitz, who noted Erdogan’s fondness for Hamas.

Kerry landed in Israel Sunday evening. No one considers his visit as any more than another stage show, but no one should write him off. He has Obama’s back and Obama has money that the Palestinian Authority, and Israel, want.

  1. Total Buffoon! Obama class Bufoon! Understands Arab mindsets like Ghengis Kan!

  2. Ethan Perks says:

    Kerry has a long history of pro Arab positions.

  3. Jed Dunkin says:

    Maybe Obama and Kerry should take some advice from my Grandma "better to sit there and let people think you are stupid , than to open your mouth and remove all doubt".

  4. Kerry maybe understands about Heinz mustard and ketchup, but zero neurons about the real world.

  5. Yosef Coelho says:

    Doesn't your statement apply to most politicians? lol

  6. John Winter says:

    Why did Obozo the Clown pick Kerry the Clueless? Do I need to say more?

  7. John Winter says:

    Well, Obozo the Clown has no clue about the real world. Look at Kerry's predecessor, Thunder Thighs Clinton another one who has no clue.

  8. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Kerry is following the obama / clinton mantra whose ultimate goal is the demise of the Jewish State with the jihadists of Egypt and the ottomans taking control in the name of the lord and savior, the "living allah".

  9. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Actually kerry married into heinz. He has no intellect there either. All his elections were bought and paid for by his wife.
