Kerrys Shocking Demand to Israel: Free Terrorists

On Wednesday the Knesset discussed Americas demand that Israel release terrorists as a good will gesture to the Palestinian Authority. The demand is part of intensive efforts by Secretary of State John Kerry to revive Israeli-Palestinian negotiations on a peace settlementefforts that are amazing in their own right considering that the Palestinian Authority has consistently shown for 20 years that it is incapable of accepting Israel and not interested in a state living in peace beside it.
Kerrywith Iran at the brink of a nuclear capability, Syria a maelstrom of clashing terror factions, Egypt close to economic collapse, and North Korea threatening nuclear aggressionhas in recent weeks been meeting with PA president Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, Riyadh, Amman, and Istanbul.
Abbass preconditions for resuming negotiations are the same as they have been for years: Israel committing beforehand to a withdrawal to indefensible borders, prohibiting Jewish building in Judea, Samaria, and parts of Jerusalem, and releasing terrorists from prison. Israel is reportedly, at this point, rejecting all these demands.
The Obama administration is also preparing a multi-billion dollar economic initiative that would bring international businesses and major infrastructure projects to the West Bankagain, nothing essentially new but, rather, part of a 20-year tradition of Israeli, U.S., and European efforts to bribe the Palestinians into adopting Western norms and practices of peace, prosperity, and tolerance.
Meanwhile the terrorists the U.S. is pushing Israel to release include the killers of:
● Amnon Pomerantz, stoned by a mob in Gaza in 1990 and then burned to death in his car
● Yigal Vaknin, stabbed to death in an orchard in 1993
● Rachel Weiss and her three young sons Ephraim, Netanel, and Raphael, all burned to death in a firebomb attack on a bus in the Jordan Valley in 1988.
● Menachem Stern, a 64-year-old acclaimed historian stabbed to death in Jerusalem in 1989
And, again, it is unsurprising and traditional that freeing terrorists is seen as the way to propitiate Abbas, who systematically instills a cult of hero-worship of terrorists and most recently officially honored a terrorist named Issa Abd Rabbo who, in 1984:
killed two Israeli university students, Ron Levi and Revital Seri, who were hiking south of Jerusalem. At gun point he tied them up, put bags over their heads and then shot and murdered both. He is serving two life sentences in an Israeli prison .
It is, sadly enough, a bipartisan tradition, with then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice having been full of praise in August 2008 for a release by the left-leaning Olmert government of 198 Palestinian security prisoners including two convicted murderersthen, too, as a gesture to Abbas.
On Wednesday in the Knesset, Ofer Akunis, a deputy minister from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahus Likud minister, claimed Israel has no intention of complying with Kerry and releasing the terrorists. MK Orit Struk of the Bayit Yehudi party, part of the governing coalition, called the demand
shocking not just because of the danger that these terrorists will return to terrorist activity once they are released, but because the release of terrorists is an energizing shot of encouragement to terror and terrorists.
It seems obvious enough. It is true that Israel has itself freed many terrorists as ransom for Israeli soldiers or civilians held by terror organizationssometimes, in my view, justified as a lesser evil than abandoning the captives to their fate. Freeing terrorists to butter-up the likes of Abbas is a different matter, especially when called for by leaders of a democracy that is itself subject to terror.
How to make yourself irrelevant in one easy lesson.
From before the 911 Atrocities to before the Boston Atrocity,
Mr. Kerry's presence is noted into Eternity.
Screw Kerry; kill the terrorists. Send the bodies back.
Jean F’ing Kerry......
Hasn’t changed since Vietnam. Anti-American worthless creep. Israel is his proxy target.
Hope Netanyahu tells him to pound sand.
Could it be that Iran has promised a quid pro quo for the Christians they have in their jails?
I might consider such a deal, as long as the terrorists are injected with an RFID tracking chip, first. After all, they present a threat of violence, while the Christian prisoners are not.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.

He hasn’t changed since Vietnam. He hates this country. And he was given his current position so he could be in line for the presidency.
The Great American Gigolo and stolen-valor fraud has an idea. Let’s all pay careful attention.
Once again, it didn’t take long for him to betray another country to the enemy.just like Hanoi Jane couldn’t keep up her born again Christian act.
He’s John Fffing Kerry and he’s reporting for...something or other.
He looks as though he’s been embalmed.
I think he was in Vietnam. Wasn’t he?
I’ll say it again, every action the U.S. government has taken toward Israel in the past thirty years has been to insure that they remain in a never-ending war.
Kerry figures that having them walk around is working out real well in America.
They haven’t seen even one in his neighborhood and he told Teresa to keep a good lookout for anyone in a turban.
Yeah nobodies even gong to pay attention to this guy. He’ll land at an airport and they’ll be done guy with a little sign scrawled Kerry.
Kerry was in RVN for four months then got himself DEROSd with three light-scratch Purple Hearts (three’s a charm under Navy regs).
I did my year. Until 2004 I thought you had to be wounded, court-martialed, or dead to leave country early. Silly me.
Good idea, send them straight to Boston.
I wish Israel would go to the UN and say on live global TV...
“We will accept JF’nKerry’s terms in exchange for the United Stated releasing all their own Muslim terrorists in their own prisons into their own cities. Take it or leave it.”
Then watch the fun when Obama actually tries.
If the terrorists commited the crimes mentioned they should not be in prison. They should be in a graveyard.
Israel’s shocking response to the horse-faced, ketchup-drenched gigolo should be: ‘Get Out Of Israel schlemiel.
What an embarrassment this administration full of jackasses should be to all Americans.
