Kerry certainly could have known all of this before he broke his boredom by jumping on the next plane to Cairo to prove once again how useless he is. He might not have known anything because his blind bats flying around Foggy Bottom feed him the information they want him to read. The item that lit the fire under his feet this week was the report that Israel killed dozens of civilians in a school. Kerry did not waste a minute to check out the facts and discover that the school was a base for Hamas, which gave children elementary education in such fields as rocket science and martyrdom.
He did not seem to care that rockets have been found in at least two UNRWA schools. In fact, his spokes folks praised UNRWA for handing over the rockets to “local police,” as if that means New York’s men in blue and not Hamas.
Instead, he revved up his talk machine.
After meeting with Egyptian and Israeli officials, he spoke with Abbas in Ramallah and stated, “We will continue to push for this ceasefire. We will continue to work with President Abbas and others in the region in order to achieve it. And I can tell you that we have, in the last 24 hours, made some progress in moving towards that goal.”
A couple hours later, Mashaal, backed by Abbas, buried the ceasefire plan along with the peace process.
