Kerry's Offer: Release Prisoners and They'll Renew Talks(Israel-Palestine)
Arutz Sheva - Israel National News ^ | 3/24/2013, 3:26 AM

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held talks with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday evening, after earlier discussing ways to push a new peace plan with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, U.S. and Israeli sources said.

A radio report said Netanyahu and Kerry had a first round of private talks and were then joined by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Netanyahu's personal envoy Yitzhak Molcho and his national security adviser Yaakov Amidror.

Channel 10 News reported that Kerry is planning on offering Israel and the PA an outline which would see Israel releasing terrorists from its prisons and transferring areas from Area B, which is under joint PA-Israeli control under the Oslo Accords, to Area A which is under full PA control.

Kerry’s outline would have the PA undertaking a return to the negotiating table and promising not to file lawsuits against Israel with the International Criminal Court.

Earlier on Saturday, Kerry met Abbas in the Jordanian capital, reported AFP.

One unverified report in Israel on Saturday claimed that Obama and Netanyahu had reached an agreement on a “silent construction freeze,” in which Israel would not promote any new construction plans but would not officially announce that there is a freeze.

From John (half Jewsh) Kerry the usual recycled bullCR from 3 and 6 years ago. Obama visited Israel to make nice before he (as a semi-Muslim) tries to screw Israel.

Imagine having to actually listen to what JFnK has to say about anything.

The ketchup gigolo’s suggestion reminds me of the infamous request made by the late and lovely Eleanor Roosevelt that the communists being held in prison be released for the Christmas Holiday.

I forgot who responded to this simple-minded request, but he said he thought that would be all well and good if Mrs. Roosevelt would take their place to insure their return.

Let's see...Israel is to release terrorists and concede territory to them. Pali's are to agree not to sue. Yeah, that sounds equitable.

Crikey.

"Kerry is planning on offering Israel and the PA an outline which would see Israel releasing terrorists from its prisons"

Which should be met with instant and derisive laughter from Netanyahu.

Always the same: The Israelis make big concessions up front, and the terrorists make promises not to act like terrorists.

Imagine McCain had somehow won in 2008 and the stress of the job was too much for him and he passed away. How the world would be different now.

Remember when Kerry was privately seeking to make McCain his running mate in 2004 ? Too bad it didn’t happen. We’d have been rid of both imbeciles by now.

We’ll be rid of John Kerry soon enough. Neither Hillary nor Jeb Bush is going to keep him on as Secretary of State. And what is John McCain now, 90?

I’m sure that in ODumbo’s feeble mind, just asking his fellow sheet-heads to sit in the same room with the Zionist Entity is a huge sacrifice on the part of the Fakestinians. G-d forbid that the Fakies ever be asked to actually do anything substantive for peace.

If it’s Hillary or Jeb, should we call them either King or Queen? They are royalty after all...

Just when you think the Dems/libs ideas couldn’t get any sillier or more stupid! How about the rockets and shelling into Israel stop or the Israelis have the right to go in and “clean” out the Gaza?

Any chance Kerry visits Gaza and doesn’t get a ride back? Just asking.

That’s difficult for the jihadists to do, considering they’ve never been in talks in the first place, merely been in the same room as the Israeli PM a few times. That’s it. Next time they meet face to face, Bibi and the rest of his delegation needs to produce sidearms and just gun down the Palestinian [sic] negotiators [sic]. Thanks haffast.

Correct, except for the “terrorists make promises”. They never agree to anything except to continue jihad.

To #5: “release prisoners, concede territory”.

Seems I heard this line before, say in 1972, 73, 74, 75 on Radio Hanoi to South Vietnam and by their supporters in the anti-Vietnam movement.

No. Vietnam only gave back several hundred So. Vietnamese soldiers and civilians after the 1973 so-called “Paris Peace Agreement” instead of the tens of thousands of kidnapped civilians and many ARVN POWs.

Seems Hanoi also forgot (on purpose), to give back all US POWS/MIAs as was stated in the “peace treaty”. Known POWS never came home and some known POWS who were in very good health came back in cigar boxes, like Lt. Ron Dodge.

Kerry, true to form, is still the same old appeasor he was back in the 1970’s. In this case, consistency is not a good thing for America.

Sheesh! I’m so relieved that JF’inKerry has come up with a really fresh, unique approach to the stalled ‘peace’ talks in the Middle East. (seriously...does this really need a sarc tag?)

That’s why they met in private, to avoid John Kerry humiliating himself in public.
