Kerry Does Obama’s Dirty Work and Chews out Netanyahu

President Obama has an unshakeable and eternal bond with himself.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry phoned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday to chew him out for Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s remarks that the Obama administration’s foreign policy is so weak that Israel cannot depend on it to stop Iran from gaining access to a nuclear weapon.

“Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning and protested to him his concerns about these comments,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters at the daily press briefing in Foggy Bottom.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu himself has said that the breadth of our security cooperation is unprecedented,” Psaki said.

“So it is certainly confusing to us why Defense Minister Ya’alon would continue his pattern of making comments that don’t accurately represent the scope of our close partnership on a range of security issues and on the enduring partnership between the United States and Israel.”

Ya’alon stated in a speech at Tel Aviv University Monday night, “If we wished others would do the work for us, it wouldn’t be done soon, and therefore in this matter, we have to behave as if we can only rely on ourselves. Weakness certainly does not pay in the world. No one can replace the U.S. as the world’s policeman. I hope the U.S. will come to its senses.”

The White House was furious at an ally such as Israel publicly stating the fact that the United States of America is not what it used to be, as The Jewish Press reported here this morning.

White House Jay Carney said Ya’alon’s comments were “clearly not constructive” and, of course, the United States “maintains an unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security.”

Since Carney was so upset, it follows that his boss, Barack Obama, would complain to Netanyahu and not to leave it to Kerry, who has as much respect by most Israeli government ministers as Obama has in the Tea party. Even the Israeli public, usually enthralled at anything American, is fed up with Kerry.

Sixty-four percent of Israelis do not trust Kerry to take Israel’s security into account as a “crucial factor” in the framework peace proposal he is trying to shove down the throats of Israel and the Palestinian Authority, according to a recent “Peace Index: poll by the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University.

Obama may be a failure in foreign policy, but he is not an idiot. He has no self-defense, so why should he feign punches with  Netanyahu when he can let Kerry be the fall guy?

  4. Anonymous says:

    Bibi did not "chew out", Kerry. It was Yaalon. Why doesn't the weakling Obama try to chew out his equal, Bibi? Kerry's equivalent is Lieberman. Try "chewing" him. The American "leadership" has no "beitzim".

  5. Jim Little says:

    In all probability that is correct.Here in the states we are trained to believe what we see and hear on the news, or read in a newspaper,it’s like automatic belief whether is is true or not.We can handle the truth, but it seems so elusive.I am positive as a whole, the American people are pro Israel, and rightly so.Our politicians are the questionable ones here, hardly representing the voters who put them in their positions,I feel cheated, and lied to.I will continue to pray for the peace of Israel, and for the peace of Jerusalem,ShalomShalom

    American News is a Smoke Screen, to allow these culprits to do their worst, and the people sit idly by bobbing their heads, like toys in car windows. They have been seduced. It’s just too bad that the Defence Minister just bowed out by apologizing to those Witches. America has cast a Spell over it’s people, and tries to do it with us. Go to H### America. Actually, they are already in it. They haven’t figured that out yet. They have been mesmerized by a Witch.

  10. Sometimes the truth hurts. Iran is still on it's path to improving it's delivery systems and it's nuclear weapons development. I like Ya'alon, I'm going to affectionately refer to him as "yelling, Ya'alon" from time to time. It's good to have some men who stand up and call it the way they see it! Good for him!

    Ohhhhh, yes, we are closest friend, when I stab you you can not run away, because we are so close. Closest friend can turn out to be your deadliest enemy.

  18. Mr. Yaalon you are good criticizing the weakness of foreign affairs to Obama and Kerry, Mr. Yaalon what about you?, you weakness allowing to release murderous arabs terrorists prissoners.

  19. Sientje Seinen says:

    Why is that the U.S.A cannot take constructive criticism, it would do them a lot of good to take a look at their foreign policies and do some house cleaning. So Kerry goes whining to Bibi shows just how weak the American leadership is.

  20. Earl W. Littlefield Jr says:

    Idiots cannot stand being identified for what they are……
