A total joke of person, politician Sec-State and a non-American….
In perhaps the most disgraceful performance by a secretary of state in recent history, John Kerry devoted his last foreign policy address to assail America’s closest ally in the Middle East. For more than an hour of his scarce time, Kerry engaged in an undiplomatic attack on Israel, but he doesn’t have five minutes to denounce Iran, Russia and the Assad regime for genocide.
Kerry apparently is counting on the biased media (the New York Times immediately praised his speech) to back his rewriting of Middle East history. He simply ignores the fact that there has never been a Palestinian state in recorded history, that the Palestinians’ claims to the West Bank are no better (actually they’re weaker) than those of the Israelis and that the Palestinians have rejected opportunities for statehood in 1937, 1939, 1947, 1949-1967 (when Jordan occupied the West Bank and Egypt occupied the Gaza Strip and they never claimed the right to a state in either area), 1979, 1993, 2000, and 2008. Kerry also fails to acknowledge that settlements have never been the reason for Palestinian rejection and that settlement construction would have come to a halt if the Palestinians had taken advantage of any of these opportunities.
