US Rebukes Ya’alon for ‘Offensive’ Remark that Kerry is Messianic

When an Israeli leader says what he really thinks of Kerry, it is no wonder that the US is insulted, even if it is true.

Now we know that Netanyahu wants to remain Prime Minister and Ya’alon is not interested in the position.

What happens next?

Kerry will return to the Middle East again. Ya’alon, despite having showered five minutes before meeting with him, may smell a bit from sweat.

Kerry will bawl him out but finally will have learned a lesson that if he wants to throw Israel under the bus, the government will take the train.

Ya’alon actually did Kerry a favor. The messianic secretary – whoops – Kerry cannot continue his farce of saying that peace will come if both sides simply stop distrusting each other.

The Palestinian Authority and Israel trust each other far more than each of them trust the United States.

No Nobel for Kerry, at least not for a Palestinian Authority-Israeli piece of paper.

Maybe he can try his luck in Syria.

  1. John Mccord says:

    When Kerry says Americans want,The U.S. wants,he is referring to the congressional elites,not the American citizens.Israel,do not trust or believe American politicians.Protect yourself.

  2. I find this article very Cynical. But then, the Israelis know were the shoe really pinches.

  3. Kirill Tuchin says:

    Yaalon, don't afraid to speak louder. People know that the emperor has no clothes.

  4. Ben II says:

    Ya’alon spoke the truth.

  5. This peace plan seeks to give up more of God’s land. If those currently in support of this peace plan don’t break with it; it will then break all of those in it’s support. God has not changed; He is the same as he has always been. From the day that he gave this land to Abraham until now, He is the same. In recent decades there have been many attacks followed by a time of settling and then renewed trouble and more attacks. Today we see this same scenario but with greater weapons involved and with less time settling in between attacks with more and more troubles mounting. There are even terroristic attacks within the settling periods. We see the Muslim nations getting closer to Moscow as time goes. This looks to be setting up the national alignment of the attack made in EZ 38 that takes place in the middle of the tribulation period. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that an evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

    Yaalon picked the wrong word. Kerry is definitely not "messianic." More accurate words to describe Kerry in his campaign to destroy our ally, Israel, would be, "dishonest," or "hypocritical," or "genocidal."

  7. Loren Gee says:

    The truth is that Secretary Kerry is so stupid he only has one idea a year

  8. Bear Klein says:

    Kerry thought Assad a reformer. Now Bogie Yaalon a lifelong professional military person has gotten tired of him telling what is best for Israel's security. Yaalon has basically said getting out of the Jordan Valley and withdrawing from Judah and Samaria will lead to a second Hamas State. Yaalon should said Kerry their is also warm weather in Turkey go visit there.

  9. Kerry does not speak for the American people! He only speaks for his leader and only says what he is told. It is all Kerry can handle.

  10. Gil Gilman says:

    I am going to give a big "boo-hoo" to Kerry on this one. I can't agree with certain commenters that he is a dunce. He has an agenda, as does Obama. But a "bigger" person would be able to shake off comments like Yaalon's, said in private, or even utter a chuckle. What it amounts to is this: diplomats like Kerry are just too thin-skinned for words, believing their own juice as we used to said in the 80s. A diplomat by necessity needs a thick hide against the retribution for all the lies they tell.

  11. Gil Gilman says:

    But be ready if he promises to rebuild the Bet HaMikdash and agree that Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel as a condition for peace…lol

  12. Not even going to read full article. Mr. Yaalon should not be expected to apologise to a drip like Kerry. Who incidentally is barely out of diapers for his knowledge of the ME and serious war. Kerry and Obama just don't get Abbas and his cronies just want Israel off the map, basta. I live outside Israel and every article I read about peace proves so called palestinians just want to take over and already well run nation and it's Oil and expertise in the collection of water and desalinization brilliance. Arabs are lazy by nature.

  13. It isn't the U.S. rebuking the comment – we loved it!!! It is John Kerry and Obama, knowing you've got their number. What sissy boys -not ready for the big time.

  14. When did it become offensive to label a U.S Secretary of State as being " messianic? To paraphrase Moses in the Book of Book, Would that all of the Hebrews are Messianc ( Prophetic, is more akin to what he said)?

  15. When did it become offensive to label a U.S Secretary of State as being " messianic? To paraphrase Moses in the Book of Book, Would that all of the Hebrews are Messianc ( Prophetic, is more akin to what he said)?

  16. Gil Gilman I agree and never did Jerusalem belong to Arabs pagan or otherwise. Their origins are nomadic and the believe the whole of the Arab peninsular and the rest of the middle east is their homeland. Just not true. The desert never bloomed under the arabs.

  17. Benjamin Fox says:

    Don't say your sorry with the illegal Obozo as president he hates Israel anyhow, when he waved getting off his private jet meant for the President, the real one, he waved his right hand like a Hitler moment as he is left handed, then in a speech he said all he want is Peace and Securty for Israel. Read 1 Thessalonians 5:3 and see it was a curse and not a blessing, watch out for yourself Israel the Islamist in the White House won't.

  18. Carlos Font says:

    Another formidable artiicle. Finally a paper that I enjoy readiing! This debacle between "Bogie and the swiftboat Brahmin" has got me in stitches. Thank you , Mr Ben-Gedalyahu. We'll see how it proceeds. If things keep deteriorating here and conservatives don't get both houses in November…look out! With a daughter pregnant with twins in Jerusalem, it looks mighty tempting to consider a move.

  19. What did Moshe Ya'alon meant when he used the word "messianic"?

  20. Alex Shapiro says:

    He meant that Kerry think of himself as messiah who can bring peace between Israel and Palestinians, whereas, in fact he does not have a clue to the complexity of this task.

  21. Alex Shapiro says:

    So Moshe Yalon said this remark in private. I do not recall that Obama ever apologized to Bibi Netanyahu for a much nastier remark, also said in private.

  22. Alex Shapiro Thank you, I thought as such but I just wanted to make sure.

  23. Kerry "crying" goes to his wife, she asks why are you crying?, mom, Yaalon is a bad boy becouse he said to me, I am a "messianic" jerk, mom says, he is right!.

  24. Yechiel Baum says:

    more insulting is a foreigner pushing his will that will result in our death. Let Kerry take his ideas with Obama to Somalia and Ireland since those are two worthless pieces of humanity

  25. Perhaps Mr. Ya'alon should learn the definition of Messianic. No true Messianic would ever try and broker a peace with the Palestinians. The land of Israel belongs to Israel and YHVH will judge all on the basis of their actions towards Israel. Studying the Torah and Tanakh would serve everyone well. All should read the book "The Big Lie" by Michael Cohen.

  26. Maynard Miller says:

    Mr Ya'alon seems to be the only one in Israel that know that Kerry is your enemy and is trying to bring you down.

  27. Gil Gilman Kerry isnt going to offer Jerusalem as Israel's capitol, He is also run by the pope, who thinks he should rule Jerusalem.

  28. Chinese says:

    American recognizes no friends, but profit. G-D is Israel’s eternal friend, and will bless those American in a paralyzing way, because they have parted His land for profit.

  29. Ya'alon is my kind of guy … Someone has to tell the Low Information crowd" in Israel too" what a lackey, fool Kerry really is !

  30. Mel Kaplan says:

    I don't know whether or not Kerry is Messianic, but associating with the Weather Underground and tossing one's military decorations over the wrought-iron fence onto the White House Lawn certainly leaves the impression one's brain is quite Messy.
