It is an act of humanity, is it not, to protect and defend?

After almost nine months of negotiations, during which Israel took concrete steps to advance the process, including the release of 78 prisoners—many of them terrorists—it is outrageous for Secretary Kerry to blame the Jewish state for the apparent failure of the diplomatic process undertaken at his insistence.
