Kerry Comes with Bad News: Israel’s Security at Top of US Agenda

Kerry said the best words possible to keep alive his Peace Talk Follies and the worst thing possible to convince Israel when he stated, “Israel’s security is as the top of our agenda.”

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry took out his diplomatic mask Thursday when he told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Thursday, “I can’t emphasize enough that Israel’s security in this negotiation is at the top of our agenda.”

He then brought out his record player so the Prime Minister could hear again what American officials have said several thousand times – “Israel has the right to defend himself.”

If that is reassurance, Israel is in big trouble because every time the United States, or the United Nations, grants Israel the unique right to defend itself, that means that Israel must exalt in pride for the recognition and shut up and let others decide what is best for the country.

Kerry is fooling himself, President Obama and media monkeys by thinking that Netanyahu believes him when he says, “Israel’s security…, is at the top of our agenda.”

It was at the top of its agenda in 2006 when Israel had to agree to the Second Lebanese War ceasefire resolution that “guaranteed” Israel’s security by forbidding foreign armies, like Hezbollah, to keep weapons.

Tzipi Livni, who then was foreign minister, signed the agreement with a straight face. Don’t forget, the same Tzipi Livni is Israel’s chief negotiator today with the Palestinian Authority.

The American concern for Israel’s security last month meant signing with Iran an agreement that gives it want it wants – less sanctions – without getting anything in return except words, more or less what Israel gets from Kerry and Obama when it gives up its tactical strength to keep the Palestinian Authority from picking then country to pieces, peace by peace.

Kerry’s concern for Israel’s security meant squeezing Netanyahu in July to agree to free 104 Arab murderers in return for resuming talks with the same Palestinian Authority that exalts terror.

Kerry’s soft sell to Netanyahu Thursday was a classic, a continuation of his style of patting Israel on the shoulder while shoving the knife in the back.

Of course, the bond between the US and Israel is “unbreakable,” and so what if there are a few minor differences between friends? After all, the only thing that really counts is that both the United States and Israel want peace on a piece of paper.

Kerry reassured Netanyahu that he has nothing to worry about and that the United States “will do everything in our power to make certain that Iran’s nuclear program, [and] weaponization possibilities are terminated.”

Given the history of the Obama administration, Israel can be reassured that the United States will not deliver on whatever it promises Israel because the White House assumes that the Netanyahu government is forever masochistic if not suicidal.

Kerry offered a gentle reminder why Washington is so sure that Netanyahu will sit every time an Obama official says, “Nice doggie.”

He referred to the Arrow ballistic missile interceptor at the Palmachim base near Tel Aviv when he said, “I want to see first-hand the remarkable ballistic missile defense technologies in place that our nation has spent over 20 years building with our friends here in Israel.”

If it was not clear that America expects Israel to follow marching orders in return for aid for defense systems, Kerry immediately followed with, “The advancement of these programs in recent years, I think, is a reflection of President Obama’s and his administration’s strong commitment, unwavering commitment to Israel’s security.”

Israel has been in constant war with Arabs even before the re-establishment of the modern state in 1948. It has survived countless double-crosses, agreements and terrorist attacks from all sides.

Therefore, according to American logic, the United States knows how Israel should defend itself.

  1. The day Israel can take care of it self by itself and not have it's ass kicked by Hezbollah then Israel can talk about striking Iran. Israel by it self would not last two weeks against Iran. Hezbollah had everyone in Israel running like rats for holes in the ground last time, are you all still in denial?

  2. Stewart Schwartz says:

    And good luck if you believe that. LOL

  3. About Obame; we have to survive him. It will not be easy because he is a very determined enemy of Israel.

  4. Kerry is a snake! President Obama is good news for the US. However, when it comes to Israel and peace our president is a hypocrite!

  5. Both Jackhole Obama and Kerry are no good scum and can not be trusted at all. Wake up America, wake up Christians. We must stand with Gods people Israel!

  6. @ Hossein.. Considering Israel's tiny population I think they've done remarkably well considering they're up against 300 million plus mad insane barbaric neighbours ??

  7. The State of Israel must explain to the United States and to all nations that God gave to Israel all the Land of Canaan, which includes all the Palestine, as it is written in the Bible, in Genesis 12:6-7, 15:13-21, 17:1-8, 17:19, 26:1-5, 28:10-14 and 35:9-12 and Numbers 34:13-29 and Deuteronomy 3:8, and that Israel possessed that land since the year 1466 BCE, and that the Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE, so that all the Palestine belongs to Israel, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and the Arabs are invaders.
    The State of Israel must not make pact with the Palestinians, because it is written in the Torah, in Shemot (Exodus) 23:32 and 34:12 and Devarim (Deuteronomy) 7:2 that God commanded Israel not to make pact with the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called "Palestine". Therefore, the peace talks with the Palestinians must cease immediately.

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    tHE un STATED SAME AS kERRY AND WHEN IN 1967, aRABS SAID TO THE un GET OUT SO THEY CAN INVADE, THEY DID, LEAVING Israel TO FEND FOR ITSELF!

  9. Ayatollah Obama messenger Kerry are trying with lies and fantasies to try bigmouth corrupt lier Netanyahu trying to sell Israel to the arabs and persian, unstead Netanyaho worrying about Iran he should first worry inside Israel and order to strike first Samaria and Judea once and for all to get a hystorical peace.

  10. Healthcare reform was their top priority too, and now everybody in America is healthy and rich. Cancer-rates, heart-disease, and health-care related debt are all in decline. Don't worry, Israel. If these guys did such a great job with an issue that could determine the fate of their nation, they're sure to do a bang-up job defending your nation. I bet they even have a plan developed that tries to copy the success of the Korean war. I just remembered another great military victory of Uncle Sam…remember the time they successfully evacuated Saigon at the end of the Vietnam war…but just in case, I'd have my own helicopters on standby.

  11. Alan Kardon says:

    Are you volunteering to go fight in a war in Samaria and Judea to get a peace?

  12. Obama is not even a christian he is a muslim in disguise.

  13. hossein Sabouni The Lord God spoke these Word, "I will gather all nations against Isreal, but I Myself will fight for her, so that the whole earth will behold His glory."

  14. Joe Khoury says:

    Kerry's motivation in negotiations is political , Israel is motivated by the reality of its surrounding.

  15. Cody Flecker says:

    The real enemies are the Jews who voted for Obama and who have donated and still donate hundreds of millions of dollars to him and the rest of the Democrats. Those are the real enemies of Israel. Solve that problem, and you have won the war.

  17. George Harsanyi says:

    Cody Flecker Agreed, 100%

  18. George Harsanyi says:

    Alan Kardon Samaria and Judea are Israel. The fight was over 47 years ago. Now only have to keep it. Netanyahu will not be sold out. I rather trust him, he has to manoeuvre the present American(?) administration and probably, future ones also. But there will not be another phillistinian state on the Land of Israel.

  19. Anonymous says:

    Based on information what is available? Total number of Jews are around 13.5 million of which 6.00 millon live in Europe and America and the rest 6.5 million in Israel. Again 30% of those 6.5 million living in Israel have resident status in Europe and America. Judaism is one of the oldest known religion. Why their number dont increase? Is there something disturbing to discourage?
