Lawmakers says Kerry should acknowledge his role in encouraging Israel to release Palestinian prisoners ahead of abduction of three Israeli teens.
Kerry condemned the kidnapping of Naftali Fraenkel, Gil-Ad Shaer and Eyal Yifrach, calling it a despicable terrorist act.
But the MKs expressed disappointment that the Americans did not acknowledge their own role in causing the crisis. The MKs noted that American officials, led by Kerry, pressured Israel to free Palestinian prisoners as part of the recently suspended diplomatic process. One thousand members of the Hamas terrorist organization were released by Israel in exchange for Gilad Schalit.
They pushed for releasing more and more terrorists, and the kidnappings were the result, said Bayit Yehudi MK Orit Struck, who heads the Knessets Land of Israel caucus.
Following the kidnapping, Danon wrote Congresswoman Kay Granger, who chairs the influential State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee, urging her to respond to the kidnapping by ending United States aid to the PA.
The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2006, prohibits American support for the Palestinian Authority if its government is affiliated with Hamas, Danon wrote. President Abbas has made his choice in forming a government with Hamas. I therefore urge you and your colleagues to implement this important law as soon possible and send a clear message to President Abbas.

Kerry is not — repeat NOT — working on behalf of the American people.
Please keep that in mind.
“Kerry is not repeat NOT working on behalf of the American people.”
Truer words have never been spoken.
Or the Israelis.
It’s a lot worse than that. Yes it’s certainly true that John Kerry, and the Western-Civilization-hating President of this country, pushed Israel to release these barbarians. But the United States is also PAYING these barbarians to commit these atrocities. The family of every one of these barbarians is PAID a salary by the Palestinian Authority, and that money comes from the United States and the European Community. And the United States armed and trained the PA’s “security” forces (how’s that for an Orwellian name for a band of brigands?)
Our tax dollars at work. We are affirmatively, directly, financially supporting and causing this insanity.
