Israel rejects Turkey as possible peace broker
Times of Israel ^ | 4/7/13 | Ron Friedman and AP

Minister for International Affairs Yuval Steinitz on Sunday dismissed reports that Turkey may take an active role in mediating between Israel and the Palestinians in future peace talks.

In an interview to IDF Radio, Steinitz said the process did not require any additional mediation to that already provided by the International Quartet.

“I think it is a baseless report. I personally am not familiar with any such decision,” said Steinitz in response to a Turkish media report claiming US Secretary of State John Kerry planned to ask Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to play a part in the Mideast peace process during talks in Ankara on Sunday.

It's clear that lamebrain Secy Kerry is mouthing words someone else wrote for him. Sounds like something ex-Cong Wexler (Dem-Fla) and other Mideast money-whores dreamed-up----to get their greedy hands on a couple hundred $$$billion more of our tax dollars. Undermining US interests in Mideast hellholes is the game these money-whores know well.

MARK THIS WELL The US Dept of state reported Dec 2011 that as part of the (ahem) cooperative effort to further Turkish economic and military self-reliance, the United States has loaned and granted Turkey more than $7 billion in economic aid and more than $14 billion in military assistance over several years.


REFERENCE Warmed over Turkey a-g-a-i-n?

Islamic TURKEY received $21 billion economic/military US foreign aid (orchestrated by a Fla Congressman forced out of office for lying).

The ex-Fla Congressman inveigled the US to launch a "cooperative effort to further Turkish economic and military self-reliance," so the US stupidly loaned and granted Turkey more than $7 billion in economic aid and more than $14 billion in military assistance.

So much for "peace and cooperation." Turkey is now acquiring nuclear weapons and the ex-Fla Congressman is now running a.n.o.t.h.e.r Mideast (cough) "Peace" group sucking up US tax dollars.

Countless US assets---our embassies, ships and military bases are bombed----our military and diplo-personnel savaged, killed, maimed and tortured by fanatics in Mideast hellholes---and invariably the US gets the blame: "We weren't stern enough, we weren't strong enough"---and my personal favorite----"we didn't give them enough money," etc etc etc.

REALITY CHECK: let us count the ways America has been duped:

Neocons duped the US into pouring trillions into Islamic Afghanistan.....the most corrupt spot on the globe. The Bank of Kabul is engaged in massive fraud---the bank gets billions of US tax dollars deposited to run the war----if you are "a connected" Afghani you can withdraw billions with no silly responsibility to pay it back. Afghan Pres Karzhai was seen loading billions of US dollars to transport out of the country.

Who could forget Obama's "Arab Spring" when all of the terrorists would suddenly become sap-happy humanitarians, weaving daisy chains while frolicking around the May pole?

Since he duped America into electing him in 2008-12, Obama's been prostrate, apologizing for America-----on his knees, all puckered up, sucking up to America-hating countries. Obama and the Chicago crime kingpins he installed in the WH have done everything possible to undermine US ntl security --- and they did it with our tax dollars.

Obama entertained the Muslim Brotherhood in the WH---and he gave the Muslim Brotherhood $2 billion tax dollars to finance its anti-American activities. It's entirely conceivable that the Mideast killings of Americans is being financed w/our tax dollars---thanks to the idiot in the WH. He and the Chicago crime bosses in the WH should be charged w/ un-American activities.

(more below)


Then-Cong Robert Wexler (D-Fla) was instrumental in getting Turkey increased foreign aid "to (gag) achieve Mideast Peace." Cong Wexler founded the Congressional Caucus on US-Turkish Relations and served on the Congressional Study Group on Turkey.

THE "PEACEMAKER" UNRAVELS In July 2008, it was revealed that Wexler claimed his mother-in-law's home in Delray Beach as his official residence (though he was listed on the House roll as "D-Boca Raton"), but lives in a Maryland suburb for most of the year.

Edward J. Lynch, a Republican running for Wexler's congressional seat, researched Wexler's living arrangements and took his argument to Fox News. "The house he lists on his voter registration is his in-laws' house, in a gated 55-and-older community," Lynch said. "Legally, he can't move back with children under 18."

After Wexler was confronted about the allegation, he stated that his mother-in-law does own the house in Delray Beach. But he also said he stays there when in Florida which, according to his office is, on average, about twice a month.

As a putative Florida resident, Wexler did not pay personal income tax, and his vehicles were also registered in that state, despite his near-permanent residency in Maryland and the Washington metropolitan area.

Wexler, born in 1961, does not personally meet the age requirements for his mother-in-law's senior community. Wexler later obtained a separate address within Palm Beach County.

BACKSTORY Robert Wexler was then Democratic member of the US House representing Florida's 19th congressional district, from 1997 until his resignation on January 3, 2010 (when he was forced out for lying).

Robert Wexler is now president of his own (gag) Mideast peace group---the Washington-based non-profit S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace (financed with limitless Congressional earmarks?).

GOOD COP BAD COP ACT During Wexler's 2008 campaign, Wexler agreed to receive JStreetPAC’s endorsement and financial support .......and thus lost funding from the pro-Israel Washington PAC. Morris Amitay, the head of Washington PAC, made clear to candidates seeking support from his PAC that he does not view favorably those who receive funds from JStreet PAC (seen as antagonistic to Israel). Amitay said “There’s a striking resemblance between the people they support and the anti-Israel Hall of Fame,”

Wexler sucking up to Netanyahu.

It’s easy to play Kerry for a fool - that’s NOT true for Israel... Turkey must of played up to Kerry by flattering him... Same stuff that was fed to Hillary that made her believe the Arab Spring would produce grateful people and stable democracies.... rather than hellholes run by the Brotherhood...
