Skip to comments.Kerry continues to extort Israel because Jews -- American and Israeli -- allow him to
Posted on 02/06/2014 3:59:45 PM PST by Former Fetus
Once again, on Saturday, US Secretary of State John Kerry tried to extort Israeli concessions to the PLO by threatening us with a Western economic boycott.
Kerry is obsessed with Israel's economic success. Last May he told us that we're too rich to surrender our land.
Now he's saying we'll be poor if we don't do so.
The anti-Semitic undertones of Kerry's constant chatter about Jews having too much money are obvious. But beyond their inherent bigotry, Kerry's statements serve to legitimize the radical Left's economic war against the Jewish state. Administration supporters and fundraisers from Code Pink and other pressure groups, as well as the EU understand that if they escalate their economic and political persecution of the Jewish state, their actions will be met with quiet understanding, and even support from the Obama administration.
This is so even if the State Department issues indignant press releases expressing fury that Israeli elected officials have the chutzpah to object to Kerry's behavior.
Israel has been subjected to plenty of abuse from American secretaries of state. But Kerry's incessant talk of "illusory" Jewish money is unprecedented.
Why does Kerry believe he can get away with this? The overwhelming majority of US lawmakers oppose economic warfare against Israel.
The vast majority of Americans support Israel and believe that a Palestinian state will support terrorism and be hostile to Israel.
So if the American public opposes Kerry's obsessive aggressiveness toward Israel, who is supporting him? Who is giving him cover for his anti-Jewish smears and his irrational focus on Jewish communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines? The answer is as infuriating as it is apparent. It is the Israeli Left and through it, much of the American Jewish community that enables Kerry's diplomatic aggression against the Jewish state.

Lots of those New Englanders hate Jews. Hell, New England Jews hate themselves.

US praises Liberman for declaring Kerry ‘a true friend’ of Israel
By JPOST.COM STAFF
The United States reacted positively on Saturday to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s statement that Secretary of State John Kerry is a “true friend” of Israel.
“Well, it certainly is a powerful statement and a powerful message given [Liberman’s] history and his background on these issues and where his view was,” State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters in Washington. “Well see moving forward. It doesnt mean theres an end to opponents for a two-state solution, an end to opponents of a peace process, but certainly, were hopeful that we can get back to the focus on the difficult issues at hand.
I think/hope that Lieberman (Yisrael Beiteinu) is just playing politics by attacking Bennet, the leader of the HaBayit HaYehudi party. Otherwise, I can’t believe he would side with Kerry!
