Kerry Has a ‘Messiah Complex’ Says Defense Minister Ya’alon

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said in private that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry acts out of “misplaced obsession and messianic fervor [and] cannot teach me anything about the conflict with the Palestinians.”

Ya’alon, whose remarks were quoted by the Yediot Acharonot newspaper, also commented, The only thing that can ‘save us’ is for John Kerry to win a Nobel Prize and leave us in peace.”

As for Palestinian Authority  chairman Mahmoud Abbas, “The moment we leave Judea and Samaria) he is finished” because Israel has kept him alive, according to Ya’alon, who also declared that the American security plan for Israel is “not worth the paper it’s written on.”

It was not reported where and when he made the statements, which probably reflect exactly what most of the Likud and Jewish Home parties think but don’t say out loud.

Opposition leader and Labor party chairman Yitzchak Herzog spring into action after hearing of Ya’alon comments and responded, “Kerry has been making every effort possible. It won’t be tolerated if he’s slandered against.”

Tzipi Livni, head of her party of six Knesset Members and Israel’s senior negotiator, wrote on her Facebook page, “Our relations with the US are our biggest national strategic asset, and they are vital for Israel’s security. You can oppose the negotiations and still not verbally attack and damage our relationship with our best ally.”

  1. They come
    they look but don’t see
    they listen but don’t hear
    they decide over what they don’t understand
    they talk nonsense and betray their own friends
    they expect to be rewarded about their achievements

    and the ritual continues over the decades yet never ends…

  5. Mr Ya’alon is a person Israel needs right now; he's able to defend Israel and lead her into the future. Michael Lerman, M.D., Ph.D.

  6. God is not afraid of obama, but obama had better learn to fear God.

  7. A two states exists already, look at Gaza, and what did it bring? Missiles and no peace! Obama, Biden & Kerry are airheads not to see that the two-states ‘solution’ doesn’t work, Gaza has been proving it for years now, and Israelis don’t want a second ‘state’ like that at their borders, they have already enough enemies around them. One must be an absolute imbecile to hope that the Palestinians of Judea & Samaria (West Bank) will behave differently from the Gazans? A de facto three-state ‘solution’ will not be a solution but a nightmare.

    Moshe told the absolute truth about Kerry
