´John Kerry is an alien, an ongoing embarrassment´: what Israel thinks of US secretary of state
Telegraph ^ | 7/27/14 | Robert Tait

Posted on 07/27/2014 7:14:21 PM PDT by Nachum

John Kerry has almost certainly been called worse things than a space alien--particularly by Israel´s Right-wing camp, where contempt for the US secretary of state and his failed peacemaking efforts is unabashed. But when the insult is levelled by the previously supportive Haaretz newspaper, standard-bearer of the country´s liberal-Left, it may be time for him--and by extension, President Barack Obama--to take notice. The withering description was coined by Barack Ravid, the paper´s well-informed and normally restrained diplomatic editor, to describe Mr Kerry´s attempts at brokering a truce to the bloody conflict in Gaza--rejected by Israel amid widespread mockery.

Kerry reminds me of that VP who sat down on someone, when getting on the plane. He was so memorable I forget his name....maybe Agnew?

I just read on another site that John Kerry's daughter is married to an Iranian citizen....and the marriage has been kept under wraps for months.

I'm looking for more details, but they are indeed married. The Kerry family picture with the bride and groom smiling in the foreground was posted along with the article. Now it seems to have disappeared......

He is a complete geek, in the classic sense;

“This word comes from English dialect geek or geck (meaning a “fool” or “freak”; from Middle Low German Geck). “Geck” is a standard term in modern German and means “fool” or “fop.”[2] The root also survives in the Dutch and Afrikaans adjective gek (”crazy”), as well as some German dialects, and in the Alsatian word Gickeleshut (”jester’s hat”; used during carnival).[1] In 18th century Austria-Hungary, Gecken were freaks on display in some circuses. In 19th century North America, the term geek referred to a performer in a geek show in a circus, traveling carnival or travelling funfair sideshows (see also freak show”

How does one describe America's clueless Secretary of State? A traitor, a gigolo, an embarrassment, an ignorant poseur, a Ma**hole? All of those and universally repulsed by those who know him personally or by his reputation.

A sideshow or small circus geek would chase chickens until he caught one, then the geek would bite its head off.
Most traveling performers took a great deal of pride in being able to say they worked with a troupe that did not have a geek.
We know how they feel.

Actually, Dan Greenfield reported that more Jews voted for Kerry than they did for Obama.

Maybe instead of calling Kerry a space alien, they should call him a space gigolo.

Kerry has been on the wrong side of nearly every foreign policy issue for the past 40 years. His “experience” is much like that of supposed foreign policy guru, Vice President Joe Biden: a long track record of grievous mistakes. Here are Kerry’s top ten worst:

10. Honduras (2009) - Sen. Kerry backed Obama’s dubious claim that leftist President Manuel Zelaya—an antisemite and autocrat in the Hugo Chavez mode—had been ousted in a coup. He even tried to reverse a contrary finding by the Law Library of Congress.

9. Terrorism (1996) - In a debate with former Gov. Bill Weld, Sen. Kerry opposed the death penalty for terrorists, at a time when lack of vigilance by the Clinton administration allowed Al Qaeda to become a deadly threat. (After 9/11, Sen. Kerry changed his mind.)

8. Nicaragua (1985) - As Mary Anastasia O’Grady of the Wall Street Journal noted last week, Sen. Kerry encouraged Congress to end aid for the Contras, who were opposing the Sandinista regime, which quickly found support from the Soviet Union and Cuba.

7. Iraq (2003) - In 2002, Sen. Kerry voted to authorize the Iraq War; in 2003, he voted against continued funding and aid necessary to secure victory. The flip-flop was not only indefensible, but also cost Sen. Kerry the 2004 election against George W. Bush.

6. Colombia (2003) - Sen. Kerry described FARC, a drug-fueled terrorist guerilla army in Colombia much beloved by Chavez and the far left, specializing in kidnappings and hostage-taking, as having “legitimate complaints” against the Colombian government.

5. Gulf War (1991) - Not only did Sen. Kerry vote against authorizing UN-approved action against Saddam Hussein, but he also argued for a “new world order” not led by the U.S. and criticized the American-led coalition President George H.W. Bush had built.

4. Iran (2007) - Our own William Bigelow notes: “In 2007, Kerry voted against a Senate resolution that wanted to “combat, contain, and roll back the violent activities and destabilizing influence inside Iraq of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

3. Israel (2003) - As CBS News has noted, Sen. Kerry called Israel’s anti-terror security barrier—which has saved hundreds of Israeli and Palestinian lives—a “barrier to peace” in October 2003. (As on many other issues, Sen. Kerry soon reversed his position.)

2. Syria (2009) - Though Sen. Kerry condemned Syria as a supporter of terrorism in 1991, when Syria had aligned with the U.S. in the Gulf War, he later embraced dictator Bashar al-Assad, leading Democrats’ efforts to rehabilitate the murderous regime.

1. Vietnam (1971) - As bad as Sen. Kerry’s record has been since, nothing quite tops his national debut in the “Winter Soldier” investigation as a decorated veteran telling false stories about war crimes allegedly committed by American troops in Vietnam.

Your #7 is the one that galls me the most, his flip-flop on Iraq. People blame Bush for the way the war went south from 2004 to 2007, but they often forget that as soon as they failed to uncover a cache of WMD’s virtually the entire Democrat Party flip-flopped and joined the media in opposing the Iraq invasion. All of a sudden it was “Bush lied, people died.”

With the GOP, politics ends at the water’s edge when we’re at war. Witness the support Obama still gets in prosecuting the Afghan war, even though he’s probably no longer even trying to win it. But as the Dems showed in 2004, they’ll turn on the military at the first opportunity.

This reminds me of a funny a friend sent yesterday about surrounding oneself with intelligent people in DC.

Obama was dining with Queen Elizabeth and asked how could one be sure the people around him are truly smart.

Liz replied there was a simple test. She called for Tony Blair and asked"Tony, if your mother and father had a child and it was not your sister or your brother, who would it be?" "Why, it would be me," Tony replied.

Obama decided to try it and called Biden in. "Joe, if your parents had a child and it wasn't your sister or brother who would it be?"

Joe thought and said he would research it and get back to the Prez. After finding no answers in the WH, Joe met Paul Ryan in the cafeteria, and asked Ryan the question. Ryan's answer "It would be me, of course."

So Joe went back to the Prez and said he had figured out the answer to the question and it was Paul Ryan.

Totally disgusted, OIbama said "No it's not. It's Tony Blair."

So I ask you how can anyone doubt the IQ of Kerry et al?

Although what you said was only half in jest, it is fact that the greatest threat to Israel is Liberal Jews in the United States, particularly those in the Main Stream Media.

It is most odd that Christians in the United States support Israel far more than those of the Jewish Faith.

I shall now put on my flame proof body suit for replies to my post.

"What no one can understand is how he can reject the consensus that's been built between the Egyptians, the PA [Palestinian Authority], Israel and Saudi Arabia and just go to Qatar," the official said. "America's allies were all backing Egypt's ceasefire plan. It was the only game in town. But he turns to a state that's no more than a gas bubble with a vote at the UN and that has always supported Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and all those madmen fighting in Syria."
