‘If I Could Rewind the Tape…’ Kerry Issues Statement on Apartheid Comment
Mediaite ^ | 4/28/14 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 04/28/2014 8:48:30 PM PDT by Nachum

Secretary of State John Kerry has issued a statement on his controversial remark about Israel and apartheid that led Senator Ted Cruz to call for his resignation today, saying he “would have chosen a different word” if he had a second chance at saying it. Kerry says that during his service at the State Department and in the U.S. Senate, he’s “walked the walk” and shown repeated support for the state of Israel, reiterating his desire for a two-state solution “that results in a secure Jewish state and a prosperous Palestinian state.” He defiantly declares, “I will not allow my

John F'n Kerry, who served in Viet Nam, it's time for you to resign. Do one thing right.

Dear mr Kerry, you have no right to try to create a “Palestinian” (sic) state by taking land away from Israel. If you ever want to create such a ( terrorist haven and attack base) again, out it on one of your own estates.

Kerry is a hopeless, pompous narcissist. He has absolutely no insight or ability to reflect constructively. His lack of accomplishment and vapid affect is apparent to everyone but him.

Kerry, you exposed who really are. I for one pray for you, because if you do not repent, your path ends badly. As in eternally. You may not believe that, Kerry, but your belief or lack thereof does not change reality...

Just another example of the lefts idiot diplomacy! They load up the diplomats with idiots who know nothing about the countries and cultures they go into, say stupid things and then wish they hadn’t. I can’t wait until the adults are back in power, but only God knows when that will be with the GOP struggling hard to be democrat lite.

Kerry is a Jew hater. He must resign. Don’t forget he was a Vietnam war Traitor who illegally met with North Vietnamese diplomats to plot against this country while our men were fighting and dieing for a noble cause. Then standing outside the Nixon White House his acts on treason continued by assaulting the White House grounds by throwing his military “wolf badge” over the fence at our President while Americans fought and won that war. All POWS were freed and the communist bastards signed the Paris peace treaty. These facts will NEVER go away. Always remember that after our great rectory, it was the DEMOCRATS that cut off the reconstruction and defense money to our South Vietnamese friends for which we laid down over 55,00o of our lives and 130,000 wounded!! at which point the Northern COMMUNISTS invaded and attacked the helpless South (after the war was won!!) and a Holocaust followed of over 1 million innocent South Vietnamese while the President (Ford) begged the Democrats to help. It was MURDER!! IT WAS THE DEMOCRATS!! IT WAS JOHN KERRY-— look it up.

Heard of anyone in the Obama administration who resigned voluntarily?

They all feel that they’re too important to do so and that the Nation could not afford their loss.

Oh course he gets a pass - he’s a slime ball that maligned out troops and cost countless thousands of soldiers to come home to such hatred that many have never recovered - he met, while in uniform, with the enemy (A treasonable offense, he made a big show of throwing away his medals - that he didn’t earn anyway - BUT HIS medals are, I hear, proudly displayed in his office. It was someone else s medals he made such a show of throwing - ever the truth stretcher.

But all is forgiven - didn’t he spend Christmas in Cambodia or something?

Piece of SCUM.

Why should HE get way with such rhetoric - same as Dingy Harry - about the “Light skinned ...with no NEGRO dialect...” (it’s okay for him to use “negro”, etc) -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQnlcUN3qcQ

and Biden ‘’the FIRST sorta .. mainstream African American - he’s CLEAN and articulate” etc - Good grief, a Republican would have been ridden outta town on a rail - and made above the fold for weeks on end.

But that's just it. You can't. You are no longer but one of 100 Senators who can dilute your own foolish statements among the other 99. You are now the lone voice of US foreign policy whose words can affect US standing for years to come. If you are not fit for the job, then resign now.

I had figured all along that BO making this clown ‘our spokesman’ was a huge mistake.

Why would one send someone as the ‘mouthpiece’ for the Country that REJECTED him as its own leader -

His own people didn’t want him NOW he is lecturing the world on how to act?

Kind of like these Pols sending ‘Queers’ to a Catholic Country as Ambassador or a ‘ditzy broad’ to Japan, for ‘paybacks’.

Course if he is ‘forced’ to can JF’nKerry he will place someone like Bill Ayres in the position......

Obama is enabling another Holocaust

Kerry is just exposing the anti-Semitic policies of president Barack Hussein Obama.

American Jews share on the blame; most of them voted for Obama and always vote for Democrats as zombies in spite that FDR closed the doors of United States to the Jews who tried to flee from Nazi occupied Europe during the Holocaust. Remember the SS Saint Louis!!!

Are the American Jews going to abandon Israel as they abandoned their brothers during the Holocaust?

That is the way the Devil pays those who serve him well.

Why American Jews Vote So Liberal & Why They Shouldn’t “

By Dr. Norman Berdichevsky:

Jewish Liberalism is an inherited disease, it is not incurable

Time and time again, I read in websites and blogs around the internet the question and puzzling paradox posed by Gentiles who strongly support Israel, how can it be that so many Jews continue to blindly vote for ultra-liberal causes that are inherently ultra-critical of Israel and even subliminally of Jews.

If this accusation is repeated in diplomatic circles, the slur was intentional. The Obama Administration uses Alinsky tactics to humiliate the opposition to get them inline.
