Nine people were killed aboard the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara after IDF troops encountered violent resistance by peace activists when they boarded the ship. The so-called peace activists were armed with an assortment of weapons. They threw stun grenades and beat the Israeli soldiers with pipes and chains. The ship failed to comply to Israeli commands before it was boarded. The terrorists planned the surprise attack on the Israeli troops in advance.
This weekend Secretary of State John Kerry compared the Boston Marathon victims to the dead Mavi Maramara terrorists. Israel National News reported, via Israel Matsav:
Speaking at Istanbul, Turkey, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a jarring comparison between the victims of the Boston Marathon terror bombs and terror activists from the IHH group who were killed when they attacked IDF forces aboard the Mavi Marmara in 2010.
Kerry told his hosts in Turkey that he understands the pain of the families whose loved ones were killed aboard the Marmara and added that he can understand their pain well, having just dealt with the families whose loved ones were slain in Boston....

Too bad JF’nKs Purple Hearts didn’t involve more grounding to reality.
He should resign over this.
Lurch is clueless. An utter buffoon.
John Kerry compares hi intelligence to a brick, the was smarter!
Is this the same john kerry who went to viet nam?
What a fop and dope....Muslims laugh..
He should resign over this.
I second that. I can't imagine he will, because leftist extremists virtually never do the right thing, but that's the least of what he ought to do. What a disgrace to America!
Kerry is no diplomat and he’s disloyal to the US to boot.
We are a visual people. Seeing it would finish him. Saying what he said just gets accusations of spin and bigotry.
I sent several Senators the FBI files on the VVAW with Kerry voting to assassinate 5 Senators back in the '70s, but hey, it was done in private with only the FBI informants as witnesses so I guess it didn't matter to Senators that could be a target for Kerry and his thugs. He also sold dope to raise money for guns and ammo to overthrow the government, but I guess he wants gun control for everyone else.
I can't ever figure why some Senator( Ted Cruz, are you listening?) doesn't ask these questions in public. I can just see the left gasping and spitting only to have the FBI file read in public to the left wing media. If you can't get a reaction when they are deciding to make him Secretary, then it ain't gonna happen later.
This should be no surprise. Those injured on the Mavi Marmara were anti-Jewish, anti-western thugs who support terrorism. Those injured in Boston were injured by anti-Jewish, anti-western thugs who were terrorists. Obama is probably happy to link a group he favors with a group that the American people favor, and Kerry is spineless enough to take orders even from the occupant of our White House.
He equated Boston Bombing victims with anti Israel terrorists.
I have no love for this administration. It’s been one big F****p
What do you expect from someone who hates the USA?
VIDEO... need video

quis·ling (kwzlng) n. A traitor who serves as the puppet of the enemy occupying his or her country.
Well, if John Kerry compared the Boston bombing to Armenian genocide the Turks would have probably beheaded him on the spot. He was playing it safe, he’s only courageous when defaming his homeland.
Or making them high-ranking bureaucrats.
I see Hillary was just the cover band for the main attraction. God help us.
He is equating marathon supporters with thugs. His witless comparison of terrorists in Boston with Israeli soldiers boarding a terrorist boat is at least asinine, at worse slander.
Contrary to this benighted fool, those killed and maimed in Boston did not deserve their fate. The Secretary of State has now claimed that Bostonians are deserving of murder. That is precisely what he said, intentionally or not.
