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.

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...

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.
