Kerry to Visit Israel, PA Yet Again
Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/12/13 | Elad Benari

He was just in Israel and the Palestinian Authority, but United States Secretary of State John Kerry will be making yet another visit to the region this week.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Monday that Kerry would be leaving Washington on Wednesday to return to the region for more talks with both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

"This is an important time in the negotiations, and he felt it was important to return to the region," she told reporters, according to the AFP news agency, adding Kerry would spend two days in Israel and Ramallah for talks.

Psaki, however, denied reports that Kerry and the administration of President Barack Obama were seeking some kind of interim framework ahead of a full accord.

"Just to be absolutely clear, we are not focused on an interim deal, we are focused on a final deal," she told reporters, while adding "there of course will be a process to getting there."

If it weren’t an act of war, we should have refused to let him exit last time.

This asinine administration will force a ridiculous treaty upon Israel, just like the idiotic one with Iran, simply so they can boast of their “Peace Accords” that nobody else could achieve.

The sad part is, hundreds of millions of cowards will fawn over them for their “achievement”, starting with our absurd MSM.

There cannot be meaningful negotiations between Palestine and Israel. If one makes a major concession to the other, it essentially denies the rational of its own existence. Both strongly claim the same land. There will be peace only when one or the other withers as a political entity. Kerry has no insights which will solve this dilemma. He is however desperate for some sort of diplomatic achievement. He desperately wants to be President and feels that Hillary Clinton has fatal flaws that in the end will prevent her from running.

he doesn’t look like he could do a decent day’s real work, but maybe you could put him on a labor crew, carrying concrete to pour foundations for the much-needed housing for Israelis in Judea and Samaria? just trying to think of something constructive you could use him for... since you seem to think maybe you should keep him there!?

Dress him up as an IDF reservist, and put him near a Ghaza checkpoint. Maybe Hamas can use him as a hostage.

that doesnt sound like a very practical idea
how much do you really think they could get for him?
two bottles of katsup maybe?

let’s face it. he’d hardly be a high-value hostage

i think the best thing would be to be nice about it and just don’t issue his next visitor visa, is all

but if you really do want him there, its fine with us!

Let them figure that out. Mrs. Kerry can romp with the pool boy, and Hamas will have to pay her to get him back.

A fool’s errand that will result in unimaginable horror, though it seems hard to believe.
