Kerry: It's a Mistake for Israel to Demand Recognition
INN ^ | 3/13/14 | Elad Benari

Posted on 03/13/2014 8:43:07 PM PDT by Nachum

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry thinks it is a “mistake” for Israel to demand that the Palestinian Authority (PA) recognize it as a Jewish state in order to achieve peace.

“I think it's a mistake for some people to be raising it again and again as the decider of their attitude towards the possibility of a state and peace, and we've obviously made that clear," Kerry told the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on Thursday, when asked to clarify the official position of the Obama administration on the issue, according to the Breitbart website.

He further said that the issue was resolved in 1947, when UN Resolution 181, which divided Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state, was passed. This resolution, said Kerry, referred to "Jewish state" several times.

Kerry also said that former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat explicitly recognized Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has insisted that the PA recognize Israel as a Jewish state in order to reach a peace agreement, explaining that the Arabs’ refusal to recognize Israel stands at the heart of the conflict.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly insisted that the PA would not recognize Israel as a Jewish state and has also stressed that the future Palestinian state would not include the presence of a single Israeli – civilian or soldier.

He stood his ground last Friday, saying during a meeting with Fatah youth activists that that there is "no way" he will recognize Israel as a Jewish state and accept a Palestinian capital in just a portion of eastern Jerusalem.

It's a mistake for the Arabs to not subjugate themselves to the True People of God, and not allow them to live on the land God gave to Abraham in Genesis:

Jean F’in Kerry did run for President - ten years ago!

But at that time, G-d was as yet merciful to this nation.

What he now tells the Israelis to do is beyond despicable and informs me (IMO) that the End Times may not be that far off.

Leftists are anti-Semites. No one should forget that Nazi means National SOCIALIST.

Kerry is a sorry bag of skin masquerading as a human being.

The "End Times"?? You capitalized both the E and the T. That sounds serious.

From what I know of that area the Israelis, Jews, and Arabs have been fighting over that land since there WERE Jews and Arabs.

That war will end on the LAST day of human existence when God ends it, once and for all. Until then, they continue to battle.

Its NOT all a battlefield. The Israelis have huge farms, stores and such and there are NOT enough Jewish Israelis to man all the work force so they HAVE to hire Muslim Palestinian Arabs to work for them.

It's mutually beneficial and, after time, the two sides become reconciled with working together. I saw it in 2011 when I visited there.
Our final local guide was a rather large, fat Palestinian Arab Catholic. (!!) Talk about being behind the 8-ball. Interesting guy. Of course he spoke Hebrew, Arabic and English.

Genesis 12:3

I'm sure it isn't a coincidence the Russians are making fools of John Kerry and Obama right now... Yet still these two pursue the false 'peace' of Obama and his handlers and try to make Israel look like the instigator. These fools need to read the OT!

John Effing Kerry (who served in Vietnam) is, and always was, a dumbass!

Even worse dumbasses are the people who married him, voted for him and promoted him!

He is 16 minutes into his 15 minutes of fame! I’ll sure be glad when he shuffles off the stage!

Kerry simply cannot stand that he has Jewish blood in him, that his family's last name was changed to a random placement of a finger on a map. So he goes out of his way to show he hates the Jews as much as their enemies. Despicable.

I assume he speaks for obama

EVERYTHING obama does either:

a) Weakens America/Americans
b) Distances America's allies
c) Strengthens America's enemies
d) Serves Islam
e) Harms Israel
Or some combination of the above.
I have yet to have anyone raise a single substantive counter example in several years of posting this.

b, c, d, and e...

In some ways I agree. Who the hell are the Palestinians and why should anyone care if they recognize Israel as a State or not. They probably wouldn’t recognize the United States if we ‘asked’ them to... Let’s just TELL them Israel’s a State. It’s a settled matter. Period.

What more could he possibly do to embarrass USA ( and himself) even more ? Send a naked “selfie” of himself to the German chancellor? To Putin? To tony wiener? My Lord?! What an idiot this guy turned out to be! I didn’t like his politics before but never imagined anyone could be this stupid. Even Joe Biden occasionally says something more intelligent than this!

The PA rejects acceptance of the fact the Jews are a nation.

Without that, the conflict will remain open-ended.

Yup, John F. Kerry has Israel’s back, alright! Its a bad Purim joke.

The congress as the representatives of the 70% of Americans who endorse Israel as a good ally would do us all a favor by showing Israel Kerry doesn’t speak for America, just like he didn’t speak for the Swift Boat men.

Call Congress and ask that they do what Truman didn’t do, namely declare officially that Israel is a Jewish State and Jerusalem its capitol of 4,000 years is now its official capitol.

And if the Arabs don’t like it, then full speed ahead for fracking and the Pipeline. We have nothing but grief buying and protecting Arab oil.

You forgot to mention opening the ANWR to drilling. We still need the Alaskan oil for the West Cost refineries. Oil trains, hauling Bak ken crude might be cheaper than Alaskan crude but the oil trains are crowding out other cargo and driving up the costs of food products. It is a mistake to try to rely so much on rail traffic all from the same area.

Kerry thinks its a mistake for Israel to insist on state recognition from Palestine? Well we know the context in which Kerry the Poofter said that , do we not?

This guy is straight up antisemite. Who needs Hitler when you got Kerry to abort Israel that way in the language?

This is bad for America. Because change of behavior does not happen by men but to men, and those resisting or incapable of adapting get destroyed.
