John Kerry backs away from Israel ´apartheid´ comment after he is hit by furious backlash - but
The Daily Mail ^ | 4/29/14 | Associated Press, by Staff

Posted on 04/29/2014 7:19:04 AM PDT by Nachum

Secretary of State John Kerry has said he chose the wrong word in describing Israel´s potential future after being criticised for saying the Jewish state could become an ´apartheid state´ if it does not reach a peace deal with the Palestinians. In a statement released yesterday by the State Department, Kerry lashed out against ´partisan political´ attacks against him, but acknowledged his comments last week to a closed international forum could have been misinterpreted. He pointedly did not apologize for the remarks, but stressed he was, and is, a strong supporter of Israel, which he called a ´vibrant democracy.´

“Let me be crystal clear. Even though I believe Israel is becoming an apartheid state, I don’t believe Israel is becoming an apartheid state.”

´apartheid´

In a nut shell, that word describes the obama gang's view of Israel.

Just like they see “white America” as having been an evil force in the world.

Just another super rich Democrat who thinks that he is above everyone and his words don’t matter. We just don’t understand his intellect. The Kerry peace talks are dead.

Israel, where Moslems, Christians and Jews can all live, vote, and hold office is “becoming an apartheid state.:

But Arab and Moslem countries where Christians are regularly attacked and oppressed, and Jews are pretty much non-existent, are not.

Go figure.

Notice (from the linked article) Kerry gave this address to the Trilateral Commission. He meant every word of it, as originally spoken.

This guy should be forced to resign. Perhaps the Senate can move forward a vote of no confidence in the Tomatoman, as it seems both sides of the isle are upset about his crystal-clear statement.

Kerry needs to retire and take up a new hobby. Maybe playing Words with Friends with Alex Baldwin?

Not content to trash just our own country and servicemen, i.e. behavior reminiscent of Genghis Khan, Kerry continues to condemn our strongest allies and praise our enemies.

Once again, it's the Junior Senator from Texas leading the way from the Senate floor!

Ted Cruz Calls For John Kerry's Resignation

“There is no place for this word in the context of the State of Israel. The term ‘apartheid’ means ‘apart’—different, isolated—the state of the victims of apartheid with which the Jews are all too familiar. The notion that Israel would go down that path, and so face the same condemnation that met South Africa, is unconscionable. The United States should be aggressively asserting that Israel can never be made an apartheid nation while America exists, because America will be with Israel regardless of the status of any diplomatic process," Cruz said in a statement. “The fact that Secretary Kerry sees nothing wrong with making such a statement on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day demonstrates a shocking lack of sensitivity to the incendiary and damaging nature of his rhetoric. It is my belief that Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel, he should offer President Obama his resignation and the President should accept it.”

When I think of Kerry, "French" isn't the first word that comes to mind.

On the other hand, he's good for one thing: I thank him for making me feel good about voting for G.W. Bush.

I can't imagine that freak show being POTUS...not that obama is any better than he would have been.

It’s better for one to remain silent and have everyone think them a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

Don’t blame Kerry, he is just exposing the anti-Jew policies of president Obama that are enabling another Holocaust.

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!!!

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

Why American Jews Vote So Liberal & Why They Shouldn’t “
israelmuse ^ | September 4, 2010

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...

The rest of the history...

John F’n Kerry says he made his money the easy way, he married into it twice, not like those Jews who emigrated to Israel and busted their butts to turn swamp and desert land into an agricultural paradise as well as turning out many of the greatest engineers and scientists in the last hundred years, only to be spit upon and murdered by Muslim Arabs who did nothing productive with the land over hundreds of years. What a despicable character.

John Effing Kerry (He served in Vietnam, you know!) is living proof that the “Peter Principle” is in play in the Ophonybama administration! He outlived his competency when he was promoted to Ltjg in the Navy! Much less US Senator [SHAME ON YOU MASSACHUSETTS VOTERS!] and SECSTATE! [SHAME ON YOU OPHONYBAMA — BUT I DIGRESS, YOU (Ophonybama) HAVE NO SHAME!]

Kerry is a miserable, sleazy sonofabitch who has LIED and bullsh!tted his way into two multi-millionaire marriages and a most undistinguished Senate/State Department career that has severely damaged the USA!

Every day he serves as SECSTATE is a disgrace and a profound embarrassment to the USA!

That he LIES is a given!

That he will not resign is a given! [Democrats do not resign!]

So, it is up to We the People to make life so difficult for Johh Effing Kerry (He served in Vietnam, you know!) that he is hounded out of office, preferably, tarred and feathered!

Why was apartheid bad in South Africa, but is good in Israel?...In SA the blacks had no representation in government, no say in the major hubs of commerce and no real say in their lives, employment or everyday life. The Isreali government includes Islamics of all stripes in their government. Once SA became “unapartheid” it turned into a horrendous shithole that gives none of it’s citizens rights, security or a way to improve themselves. The highest murder, robbery and rape rates in the WORLD (maybe outdone by Detroit for the same reasons).
