Kerry: Peace Isn't About Me, It's About You; Israelís security "is our first priority,"
inn ^ | 3/3/14 | Ari Soffer and Elad Benari

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday reaffirmed America’s friendship with Israel and its commitment to the Jewish state’s security.

Kerry, who spoke at the AIPAC conference in Washington, said that his peace efforts were “not about him” but were about the “dreams of Israelis” and the “dignity of Palestinians.”

“People ask me why am I so committed to these negotiations and why am I convinced that peace is possible,” he said, adding, that it was wrong to ask him why he visits the region so much.

“This isn’t about me,” said Kerry, adding that his peace efforts were all about answering King David’s timeless call – that we seek peace and pursue it.

Israel’s security "is our first priority," he said, adding, “When [Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu] says, ‘I can’t accept a deal which doesn’t make the people of Israel safer’, I agree 100%.”

Kerry further declared that the United States "will not let the West Bank turn into another Gaza," explaining that it was for this reason that he brought John Allen to work with all sides to make the borders of the future Palestinian state as secure as any other.

Anyone who says an issue is “not about themselves” is merely revealing that they have been thinking that it is about them.

Voted against this a-hole when he ran for POTUS. If I was the Israelis, I would tell him to get out and not come back. Obama and his dictatorship, all of them hate Israel and don’t trust zero. I love Netanyahu as POTUS, he would be good compared to the traitor we have !

Bingo.
Also, if Palestinians want more dignity some should start with unstrapping explosives from their persons.

Kerry helped bring the Mosque into Boston that led
to the Boston Atrocity.

If Israel was his priority, why dissect THEIR capitol?

Not sure which must be worse fir Israel, to have 50,000 islamoNazi bombs toaimed at her citizens ‘ homes and schools, to have to listen to all the daily threats to destroy her entirely, or to have to listen to obamaKerry threats and lies and supersized bshit, or to have to read the enemy propaganda that gets passed all the time as if it were honest news reporting. But Israel will survive and grow and build and make a good life for herself, come what may from any of lucifer’s agents.

Nobody believes you John.

YOU and Barack are NOT in a position to “let”, or “not let” anybody do anything!

If somebody thought for a moment that “you” might have the capacity to make a difference, “you” have made it quite clear “you” don’t have the will!!!

***”and the “dignity of Palestinians.”***

The Pali’s are TERRORISTS, John. And don’t think for a minute Netanyahu takes seriously anything you say.

“This isn’t about me,” said Kerry...and the other day he said something about what's going on in the Ukraine wasn't "about war between the east and west" but about the people of the Ukraine - he's awfully good at telling people what things are and aren't about - whatever that means.....

I see. It’s your first priority, so let’s just let you decide what we’re supposed to do.
