US Secretary of State John Kerry informed Hamas via Qatar last week that under his proposal for a ceasefire with Israel, based on the original Egyptian initiative, the US would guarantee the fulfillment of many of Hamas’s demands for an end to the war, Palestinian sources told The Times of Israel on Saturday.

Kerry’s handling of the ceasefire effort was castigated by Israeli sources on Friday and Saturday, and the Israeli security cabinet unanimously rejected his ceasefire proposal on Friday night.

The guarantees promised to Hamas by Kerry under a ceasefire, as relayed to The Times of Israel by the Palestinian sources, pertain to the following issues: an easing of restrictions on the passage of goods from Israel to Gaza; an easing of restrictions on the passage of traders and businessmen from Gaza to Israel; expansion of the permitted Gaza fishing zone to 12 miles off the coast; the opening of the Rafah crossing with Egypt, to be manned by Palestinian Authority officials; and a promise to ensure the transfer of salaries to Gaza’s government employees.

Kerry made no promises on the issue of the Hamas demand for the release of prisoners, other than a pledge to discuss the matter. There was also no mention of the establishment of a seaport in Gaza, as demanded by Hamas.

“As head of Israel, I assure you that we will give in to all of your demands”, explained US Secretary of State John Kerry. “And did you know,” he went on to explain, “that I served in Vietnam?”

I’m also President of the United States, or should have been if it hadn’t been for those Swift-boat veterans. I save their lives numerous times, and that was the thanks I got! Do you know who I am?

True.
I wonder if Kerry knows that Hitlery WON'T chose him for V.P. when she runs. Has she shown any signs of naming a V.P.?

BOTH of them "give me the runs."

Jean-Francois Kerre` has not yet absorbed the very basic axiom, that no appeasement is ever enough for the omnivorous Islamic Jihadist militant. They would just as cheerfully take down the French pony as quickly as anybody, and like a bunch of piranhas, strip him to bones in a matter of minutes.

They had no respect for a US ambassador in Benghazi, did they?

All you have to do is take out whatever picture ID you use and look at it. That's you.

I think Hitlery selecting a VP at this point is way premature. I think its less than 50% chance she’ll actually get the nomination.

Hmmm, I hope you're right. I would loathe having her snotty face interrupt any of my T.V. programs with campaigning.

Israel is fighting for its life and we send a cowardly, yellow bass turd over there. Israel needs to tell Hanoi Boi to take a hike.

Can some one please help me?

My screen is not showing what Hamas says they will do. Like turn over 5,000 rockets.

To have a deal both sides have to feel like they won.

Hey horseface, go put on the Heize feed bag and shut up.

Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Bass turds are probably not yellow. Who can tell? They dissolve in water too fast. Maybe we could do an experiment with a constipated bass, and settle this once and for all. Oh, and about John Kerry...well, I really can’t think of a thing to say in his defense.

Yeah, I dunno. In hindsight, probably would have preferred her to Obama. Frankly, I don’t see any Democrat I’d be comfortable with in the Oval Office.

I don't either. They are so far left as to be uber socialists, almost communists.
A guy on O'Reilly said that the GOP are today where the Democrats were 40 years ago. He might have a point.

Sigh. What to do?

Isn't it nice of Mr. Tomato Sauce to negotiate with terrorist Mass Murderers on behalf of the Israeli Knesset?

Nice of him to use the word ‘guarantee’ in advance of any agreement with anybody. Were those his instructions, or was he just talking out of his a@#? I suspect the former.

What do you think the Hildabeast (and her MSM enablers) has been doing for the last three-four months?

You haven't noticed?

Oh, I see, he’s now making you and me responsible for meeting the demands of terrorists. This is NOT the America I knew just 6 years ago.

I guess you got to say Hamas isn't the sharpest folk on the planet but surly they realize that Kerry is one of the biggest liars this side of hell..!

The guy is a snake... He would would lie to you even if the truth would do better...
