Skip to comments.Officials: Kerry Way Out of His League in Talks
Posted on 01/08/2014 10:07:42 PM PST by Nachum
After weeks of diplomatic activity, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is expected in the coming days to present what is expected to be at least a temporary agreement or framework for peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, but senior Israeli officials are already dismissing the plan as unsophisticated and unusable.
The officials, quoted in Yisrael Hayom, said that Kerry had been rushing hither and fro in and attempt to hammer out details of what is expected to be the framework of what he would like to see implemented in order to pave the way for a final-status agreement. The framework is expected to lay out the final goals and eventual shape of a final-status deal, with Israel committing to give up land in Judea and Samaria, and the PA expected by Kerry to recognize Israel as a Jewish state and to back off on some of its demands.
But based on Kerry's public statements and conversations with them, the officials quoted said they don't expect anything useful to emerge from the process. Kerry is here in the region a lot, but he has almost no understanding of how things work in the Middle East.
As a result, the American plan is unsophisticated, and

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That’s the John Kerry we all know and love.
“Love” in what way?
It’s hither and yon or to and fro, not hither and fro.
Love with a two by four. Some old fashioned tough love.
Hey, maybe he could marry a rich Arab widow and she could buy him into a treaty of sorts.
Did you know he was in Vietnam during the war? It's also rumored he has 3 purple hearts,a bronze star and a silver star.
Palestinians will back off on some of their demands?
What, like “ Die Jews, or Death to Israel.
Well, it would be a good place to start...
Kerry- the AlGore of diplomacy.
A Viet N war detractor who’s fine nothing but enjoy his older and wacky wife’s $billions , is unfit for representing the state department ?
Who’d a thunk it?
The kids here say he lolls like Ernie from Bert & Ernie. And he does Folsom l the work he’s had done he’s at that post viable stage
It fits wit the CIA boss saying to Tony Mendez portrayed in ‘Argo’, on yheir way in to the sec state ‘s office, ‘brace yourself, it’s like talking to those old fs from the muppets’
Honestly, behind the scenes, the Israelis see Kerry like he’s a little child wearing a beanie picking his nose.
Who’s done nothing but...
He looks like Ernie
It fits with
I’ve got news for them...
Headline should read:
Kerry Way Out of His League, Walking Around the Block...
I’m reading a book on Churchill quotes, and wonder what the great man would say about Kerry.
every announcement or ‘leak’ of what Kerry was proposing reflected a total and complete misunderstanding of the situation over there, and grossly unrealistic (and offensive, in many instances) proposals for how to deal with them.
his “as-prompt-as-possible” return home will reduce this embarrassment to America and, hopefully, the damage to the middle east.
Obama thinking...Hey, it didn’t work when I sent them
a woman, maybe an idiot will work.
Kerry is out of his league every morning as soon as he gets out of bed.
I wish we had more incompetents in the Regime. Maybe they would goof and accidentally do things which benefit America.
“Officials said that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has ‘almost no understanding of how things work in the Middle East’ “
Nor anywhere else either!!! We now have a flock of no-working lightweight Marxists running our once great country but the news is about Honey Boo Boo’s car crash!
“Its hither and yon or to and fro, not hither and fro.”
No, it’s a bunch of Fros going hither on vacation on our dime!
“Hey, but he’s an expert on Jenghis Khan, don’t you know? “
Oh come on! “Everybody” knows the word is JENGJIS!
He was in the Senate for 28 years and has no idea how things work there either.
Kerry must be smart. How else could he have made so much money?
“He was in the Senate for 28 years and has no idea how things work there either.”
But did you know he “served” in Vietnam, but was “felled” by a “terminal hangnail,” awarded a medal and sent home. seriously, we have both White and Black $hit in our government today, and not much else!
"Shortly after taking office in 1985, Kerry and Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa went on a fact-finding trip to Nicaragua, where they met with Daniel Ortega (right) and other Sandinistas. The trip was criticized when the Sandinistas cemented ties with Moscow."
Kerry is here in the region a lot, but he has almost no understanding of how things work in the Middle”
Of course, this is a guy who got totally played by David Ortega.
"Under questioning from the Committee, Kerry referred to the democratically elected government of South Vietnam -- our allies -- as a "dictatorial regime, the Thieu-Ky-Khiem regime," while respectfully calling the North Vietnamese communist regime we were fighting by its oxymoronic official name, the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and the murderous Viet Cong's political arm by their preferred "Provisional Revolutionary Government.":
Michael Ramirez has become the Jimi Hendrix of conservative cartoonists. You can see his influence everywhere.
There is NOT ONE THING Obama does, that does not HARM the United States. I was surprised at Kerry's selection, because as a former Presidential candidate, who appeared at least competent, this fell outside the Obama norm.
Now it fits again.
Kerry can you fool because he looks presentable and says decent things... but underneath is a senile idiot. I’ll bet his staff has to lead him along every step of the way. Kerry is probably on drugs for physical ailments that mess up his mind a bit. Half the old coots in the US Senate are.
You can never under estimate the glory seeking by this POS. Who will happily destroy Israel to get in the history books. Kerry is half Jewish via both his paternal grandparents.
Why doesn’t he work out a rice treaty between Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand? They are “seared” in his memory, aren’t they?
John Fonda Kerry didn't get "played" by communist leader Daniel Ortega. They are of the same political mindset.
Of course he is; but Mommy wife had to make them give him something with all the money she donates.
Churchill would reprise what he called another “a sheep in sheeps clothing”
Getting that Purple heart....he still has rice buckshot embedded in his arse.....glory seeking personified!!!
Ortega embarrassed Kerry when he took the Soviet money in flagrant contradiction to his letter where he promised he wasn’t a commie stooge. I don’t think that was part of Kerry’s plan.
"After being transferred out of combat duty, Kerry was restationed in New York in early 1969. By late 1969 his older sister Peggy was already involved in the antiwar movement, working for the Vietnam Moratorium Committee (VMC). That October, she recruited John as a pilot to fly Adam Walinsky, a key leader of the New York office of the VMC, to VMC-organized antiwar demonstrations. Kerry, who was still on active duty in the US Naval Reserve, later boasted that he had been smart enough not to put down Moratorium on the Navy signout sheet for that Tuesday and Wednesday."
Here are a couple of photos of the Vietnam Moratorium Committee (VMC) in action...
“almost no understanding of how things work in the Middle East”
You mean after serving in Vietnam and having Botox shots, he’s not qualified? (sarc)
“Kerry is here in the region a lot, but he has almost no understanding of how things work...”
No comment needed.
Y'all laugh but wait 'til he breaks out his magic hat.
Whither he dither, he thither froth much to and fro—not hither and fro but yonder go his blather.
Unfit for duty as usual.
