U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has struck Israel with a host 10 plagues since he reincarnated the dead and deadly peace process last July.
He still has one last malady left before he runs out of ammunition, blames the Jews and Arabs for not making peace for the first time in 100 years or so, and scuttles back home to make trouble elsewhere in the world.
The first sign and wonder that the self-honorable Secretary offered was none other than John Kerry himself.
“I will come upon you for nine months until you let my people – er, the Arabs – go free from the Occupation,” he in effect announced. One would think that he was living in a time tunnel because the Arabs were freed from their Egyptian and Jordanian occupiers in 1967, but the State Dept. does not know that since there is nothing in its archives on Israel between the 1948 and 1967.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was not so impressed with Kerry’s first miracle and he turned to his wise men, who came up with Israel’s own sign and wonder, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon. He is the man who stood on principle, when there was such a thing, when he was IDF Chief of Staff in the Expulsion Government of Ariel Sharon. He paid the price of being snubbed for what is usually an automatic extension of the term of office, and Kerry knows that.
So Kerry and his boss, President Barack Obama, brought out their next miracle whitewash of lies, also known as J Street and the host of Jewish armchair diplomats who think that because they live in the United States and are Jewish, or call themselves Jewish, they know how to run and defend Israel better than the ignoramuses who live in Israel.
The White House closed its doors to AIPAC and rabbis who actually believe that the Torah was given to Jews by God and is not subject to interpretation by every shrink and fink, and it opened them for J Street, Jews and even non-Jews who call themselves rabbis because they have been ordained to be politically correct.
They suddenly became the voice of Americana Jewry, who joined John Kerry to berate the government of Israel on how to conduct its affairs and to teach them a lesson that every home for Jews in Judea and Samaria endangers the national security of the United States of America.
But Netanyahu’s heart remained Jewish and Israeli and he refused to free the People of Israel from the threat of extinction.
Kerry then huffed and puffed and screamed, “Settlements!” to scare Jerusalem. “You are illegitimate,” President Obama told the settlers. “You are illegal,” Kerry scolded them. “You are an obstacle to peace.”
The settlers answered, “We are an obstacle to war,” and Kerry followed up with the plague of the boycott.
“If Israel does not agree to remove every settler from the Biblical heart of Israel where Jesus, the first Palestinian was born, I will inflict on you the Boycott. I will not drink anything that comes from SodaStream, even if Scarlett Johansson tempts me.”
Israel responded that if Jesus, born Jewish, was a Palestinian, then every Jew in Israel is a Palestinian, too, and also should be able to vote for who heads the Palestinian Authority.
Without warning, Kerry waved his staff – the wise men of the State Dept. – and told the People of Israel that if they do not agree to live in the ghettos of Tel Aviv, he will bring on them the refugees – 5 million Arabs who will swarm the land of Israel from Eilat to Kiryat Shmona, and from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
