US Foreign Policy Hits New Lows After Israel Mocks John Kerry; Update - Israel Apologizes

Update: it was inevitable. Israel has apologized:  Barak Ravid

@BarakRavid

BREAKING: Israel MoD Yaalon apologizes for his statements against SecState Kerry

1:28 PM - 14 Jan 2014

  Just when you thought US foreign policy under John Kerry couldn't plumb new lows, here comes Israel, mocking... John Kerry.

 

Richard Engel        

@RichardEngel

Yaalon quoted by "Yediot Aharonot" saying: only thing that could "save" is for Kerry to win Nobel Peace Prize and "leave us alone."

But it wasn't Israel's mocking of Kerry that was embarrassing: after Syria, Israel is hardly a big fan of Hillary's replacement who brought the Middle East to the verge of a YouTube clip fabricated war, and then promptly slank back to his yacht. It was the spirited White House defense. To wit from Reuters:

The White House on Tuesday denounced reported comments by Israel's defense minister that were sharply critical of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

 

White House spokesman Jay Carney responded to reports that Israeli military Moshe Yaalon said Kerry's pursuit of Middle East peace is out of an "incomprehensible obsession and a messianic feeling."

 

"To question Secretary Kerry's motives and distort his proposals is not something we would expect from the defense minister of a close ally," Carney said.

Well, dear "Jay", while the US is stuck manipulating the stock market in its 5th year of attempting to trickle down the wealth effect, and defending Obama's disastrous insurance ponzi scheme legacy, China (and increasingly Russia) are dividing up the world among them: from Africa, to Syria, to everywhere else, all the while soaking up all the gold that is not nailed down. So by all means - be prepared for more surprises.

As for Kerry's "messianic feeling" - was anyone actually surprised?

They had no imaginable reason to apologize, K’s proposals were totally irrational, unworkable, and destructive. (And insulting).

I was one that thought K would grow into the job.
I have to admit I was wrong.

(Same for his boss, alas!)

Pray for America!

I'd like to see the actual wording of the apology. Apologizing to Kerry/Obama will only encourage more US aggression against Israel.

it was inevitable. Israel has apologized

Obama must have made a serious, credible threat -forcing Israelis to sign up for Obamacare.

The Israeli’s know exactly the kind of PR damage this does to the administration in the House and Senate.

The forced apology is almost worse than the insult.

He can apologize all he wants but truth is truth. Kerry is not accumulating all those frequent flier miles and photo ops for nothing. He still desperately wants to be President and figures that Hilary in the end may not run due to her fatal flaws. However Kerry is not accomplishing anything significant and appears to be in a perpetual jet lagged haze.

Like her looks?

Can you imagine what she'll look like in 5 years? What a train wreck.

Israel mocking Kerry is a good sign. Of course, the gigolo is a complete jerk. That is why my home Communist Commonwealth of Massachusetts likes him so much.

We did elect the killer Kennedy over and over again, afterall.

US Foreign Policy Hits New Lows After Israel Mocks John Kerry; Update - Israel Apologizes

Moshe Yaalon: I am sorry...
that John Kerry is a dim witted, horse faced idiot, with messianic delusions.

"I want to look him straight in the eye and tell him what a cheap, lying, no good, rotten, far flushing, snake licking, dirt eating, inbreed, overstuffed, ignorant, blood sucking, dog kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat assed, bug eyed, stiff legged, spotty lipped, worm headed, sack of monkey shit he is!!! Halleluah!! Holy shit!! Where's the Tylenol??"

He is right for apologizing; “obsessive and messianic” rightfully belong to Kerry’s boss, not he himself.

That Defense Minister should immediately correct himself and call MFKerry by his proper title: LickSpittle.

You must stop sugar coating your feelings. The measure of our desperate circumstances is that John Kerry is our SoS.

“... Israel has apologized...”

Why, one should never apologize for the truth (except when you slip and say: “That’s the ugliest baby I think I’ve ever seen without a leash”}.

God help us if Kerry becomes POTUS ! He is bad enough as Sec of State ! The GOP needs to get good people to run for POTUS ! McCain was not too bad but Romney was awful. We need a Reagan type of person to run ! At least Bush jr was much better than his dad. Bush senior caved in too much to the liberals ! And keep the House out of D control as well.

What’s to apologize about? No one can make John Kerry look more foolish than John Kerry. The man is a punchline with a heartbeat. Telling him to take his Nobel Prize and go home was perfectly appropriate.

Who is mocking John Kerry?

And why would anyone think Israel is a "close ally" of the USA? They have not been since Obamas resignation from the seat as the free worlds leader on 21 Sept 2011, a seat taken up by Nethanyahu, the new leader of the Free World in his speech to the UN Sept 23 , 2011.

In due course Obama had enemies of Israel as his advisors and employees within his administration, members of the Muslim Brotherhood bent on the declared destruction of Israel. Their names: "...... Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships."

Israel is no longer an "ally" of the USA. Far from it. U.S. Congress puts on an interesting charade. Its the same with former "allies," Egypt, Libya,Japan, India and Taiwan, abandoned because of Obamas declaration that the alleged period of US imperialism ( lefty speak)had ended through his surrender to US enemies, based upon Obama's skewed view of history, that the USA was built solely on the backs of exploited racial and ethnic minorities by White America...... a load of leftist fascist hooey.The USA is being ruined by ignoring the Constitution and its established conventions, and the world brought to the brink of WWIII by Obama liberal fascist "Hopey Changey."

And its no joke, Iran's nuclear weapons will be used.

The "apology":

"Israel and the United states share a common goal to advance the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians led by Secretary Kerry. We appreciate Secretary Kerry's many efforts towards that end. The defense minister had no intention to cause any offense to the secretary, and he apologizes if the secretary was offended by words attributed to the minister."

Translation: I did not intend to cause offense, since I spoke the truth. If you were still offended by the words that I am reported to have said, then I apologize.

He still desperately wants to be President...

Exactly. That's why he had his face reconfigured. Unfortunately, he came out looking like Mr. Potato Head.

During World War II the Jews of Europe went "quietly in the night" to their deaths. This will never happen again and one must read about the "Samson Option" to understand what will happen if Israel is ever faced with imminent destruction. It may be possible to destroy Israel but she will not go quietly in the night.

If you have clicked on the link and read the “Samson Option” you will understand that Israel will not only destroy those that may have destroyed her. Israel will also destroy those that have enabled her enemies to harm and or destroy Israel.

This is the concept of MAD, i.e. “mutually assured destruction.” This concept worked during the cold war as the leaders on both sides were rational men and neither wanted their nation or culture to perish. The problem for Israel is her enemies are not rational people. In Iran the Mullahs do believe that the destruction of Israel despite their own destruction will bring the return of the Mahdi and in the great battle to follow Islam will reign supreme and triumphant.

This is madness. I fear if we or Israel or both do not take out Iran’s nuclear program we will see the result of the “Samson Option.” Many millions will die if this occurs.

"Don't cry for me Argentina."

However, Eva Peron was beautiful in her youth and died at an early age, still beautiful. Hillary Clinton does not have the same attributes as related to beauty. However, she does share many of the same traits as Eva Peron. Those traits are quite the opposite of her beauty.
