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

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.

“Just get on the damned cattle cars.” Lurch went on to say (in a manner reminiscent of Genghis Kahn).

Ketchup Boy Kerry is a loaded, loose cannon slithering about the gun deck.

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.

Just wondering.

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.
