Skip to comments.Kerry 'Protests' to Prime Minister Over Criticism from Ya'alon

In a rare move, Secretary of State John Kerry protested to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday over Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon's strong criticism of US foreign policy, according to AFP.
Ya'alon slammed the US and the West on Tuesday for its "soft" approach toward the possibility of a nuclear Iran.
"Everyone knows Iran is lying," Ya'alon stated. "But the pampered West is satisfied with postponing conflict [with Iran over the nuclear program]."
Ya'alon's comments made headlines in Israeli media Tuesday evening over his perceived change of heart regarding the Iran issue - and apparently have also drawn the ire of US officials.
In a telephone call, Kerry told Netanyahu Wednesday that the comments made by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon are inconsistent with reality, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
"Clearly his comments were not constructive," Psaki told reporters.

Isn’t Iran the only ones praising John Kerry?
Ambassador Cupcake doesn’t have a clue.
The US is not even responding to Russia. Whether does it get the right to tell Israel to sit down and shut up on Iran?

And now Russia says it may “change its stance” on Iran in response to the Crimea situation.
Cupcakes and Gap shoppers take note.
Israel is right. US policy is against our ally Israel. US policy has become evil supporting Israel’s (and America’s) enemies.

Well, the US is not weak. We project weakness. But I'm not sure that's worth much complaining on the part of the US. Then again, what can Kerry do, if he complains about most any other country he'll get chuckles, here he gets an apology.
Here’s my apology to the US: I am truly and sincerely sorry that you have become weak. I wish it were not so. But it is, and for that I am sorry.
