Kerry Flubs, Calls Palestinian Authority a "Country"
Virtual Jerusalem ^ | 7/26/2013

Posted on 07/26/2013 7:33:06 AM PDT by Former Fetus

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry appeared to have flubbed his lines on Thursday, when he referred to areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority as a country, reported AFP.

Speaking at the United Nations ahead of talks with UN chief Ban Ki-moon, Kerry praised the "courageous decision" by Israeli and PA leaders to try to resume direct negotiations.

He then told reporters, "It's my hope that that will be able to happen as procedures are put in place by both countries in order to empower that."

The final status of the areas controlled by the PA has yet to be determined and no Palestinian state has been established.

State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf assured reporters later that U.S. policy had not changed.

"Our position has not changed not on the status of the Palestinian territory. The secretary was in no way indicating a change of policy," she said, according to AFP.

Later asked about his comment, Kerry replied: "Did I say that?"

Does anybody believe this was a "flub"? Unless it means that Kerry accidentally spoke what is in his heart... I am extremely uneasy about these peace talks, from Kerry's influence, to Israel sending Tzipi Livni to the talks. I mean, she is the Hillary of the ME, and if you don't believe me, look at this pic.

I have been praying for the peace of Jerusalem, but in the back of my mind I wonder if this is not all necessary in order for the future fulfillment of Joel 3:2 (They have also divided up My land). Any thoughts about it?

Of course it wasn’t a flub. The guy is a traitor who supports enemies of the US and Israel which is exactly why the admitted foreign born twice unconstitutionally elected Islamic commie Kenyan POTUS made him S of S.

I agree with you. Now, what about the setting up for Joel 3:2? I mean, is this an upcoming disaster or one more sign that the Rapture is imminent?

Kerry isn’t even his real name. It’s Kohn. His Grandparents changed their names by randomly pointing to an area on a map,and they hit county Kerry Ireland. So besides being a traitor he’s also a fraud who for years tried to pass himself off as being 100% Irish in Massachussets which as you know with the Kennedys is an advantage, but in reality he’s a Austro-Hungarian Jew.

Kerry Flubs, Calls Palestinian Authority a "Country"

That's almost as bad as calling John Kerry a "statesman."

Amazing story . If his real last name is Kohn, does that make him a Cohen, of the line of Aaron? What a mess! The devil must be laughing his head off!!!

Vatican raises Jerusalem status as it hails UN Palestine vote
Last updated Tue 4 Dec 2012

The Vatican has hailed the United Nations' implicit recognition of a Palestinian state.

The 193-nation UN General Assembly vote resulted in an elevation of the Palestinian Authority to a "non-member state," the same status as the Vatican.

"The Holy See welcomes with favour the decision of the General Assembly by which Palestine has become a Non-member Observer State of the United Nations," a statement said.

If the pope says it's a state, well then, it's a state.

He is one of the bad Jews then..

I had read that before when he was running for President..Thanks I had forgotten..

Fritz and Otto excelled in their studies in Vienna. However, like other Jews, they suffered greatly from the anti-Semitism that prevailed in Europe at this time. As a result, both Kohn brothers abandoned their Jewish heritage and converted to Roman Catholicism.

In addition, in 1897, Otto decided to shed the Jewish-sounding name of Kohn. He chose a new name by dropping a pencil on a map. The pencil landed on Ireland’s County Kerry. In 1901, Fritz followed his brother’s example and officially changed his name to Frederick Kerry.

Kerry’s grandfather was born a Jew but converted to Roman Catholicism. I believe that Kerry’s grandfather married a non-Jew so according to Jewish law Kerry’s father was not Jewish. Kerry’s father lived his life as a Roman Catholic, and married a woman, Rosemarie Forbes, who also was brought up in a Christian household, although hers was Protestant before her marriage to Kerry’s father. I believe that Kerry has been a Roman Catholic all of his life, making him third-generation Roman Catholic.

You ave to work hard to try to blame the Jews for this one, sorry.

"A Roman Catholic, Kerry was said to carry a rosary, a prayer book, and a St. Christopher medal (the patron saint of travelers) when he campaigned. However, while Kerry is personally against abortion, he supports a woman's legal right to have one, which puts him at odds with the Catholic Church. Discussing his faith, Kerry said, "I thought of being a priest. I was very religious while at school in Switzerland. I was an altar boy and prayed all the time. I was very centered around the Mass and the church." He also said that the Letters of Paul moved him the most, stating that they taught him to "not feel sorry for myself."[21]"

"In an interview with Christianity Today, Kerry said of his faith: "I'm a Catholic and I practice, but at the same time I have an open-mindedness to many other expressions of spirituality that come through different religions. ... I've spent some time reading and thinking about religion and trying to study it, and I've arrived at not so much a sense of the differences, but a sense of the similarities in so many ways." He said that he believed that the Torah, the Qur'an, and the Bible all share a fundamental story which connects with readers.[22]"

As regards Jawn Effin’ Kerry, I think the word you’re looking for is “heretic”.

Good gravy. Beside the obvious slip of the tongue that exposes their mindset - his command of the King's English leaves one shaking one's head yet again -

"... that will be able to happen as procedures are put in place by both countries in order to empower that." "

Editor's red pen: "that will be possible as procedures are put in place."

Judaism is transmitted through the female line. Kerry’s grandmother was Catholic and he’s Catholic. By the way, many, many of today’s Germans and people of German ancestry have Jewish ancestors.
Here’s some information on that:

What you are telling me is that in the HYPOTHETICAL case that Kerry would ask for Israeli citizenship based on his father's ancestry, they would deny it? I mean, they would deny it not because who he is, but because his mother was not Jewish? I know that following the mother's line follows Halacha law, but I doubt Hitler cared for such niceties! It's been the question for centuries: what is a Jew?

As a disclaimer, I don't care whether Kerry is Catholic of Jew. American Jews seem to only pay lip service to Israel... if they do, at all. Look at Rahm Emanuel!

Sounds like something Hitler would do.

You are understanding correctly. Kerry is not Jewish, nor does he consider himself Jewish.
