State Department Hits Back at Israeli Criticism Over Kerry
Arutz Sheva ^ | 7-30-14 | AFP and Arutz Sheva Staff

Israeli attacks against US Secretary of State John Kerry accusing him being of a supporter of Hamas are "offensive and absurd," a senior US diplomat said Wednesday.

In a sharp exchange with reporters, deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf hit out against a torrent of abuse from "respected voices in Israel talking about the secretary of state, claiming that he supports Hamas, which is offensive and absurd."

The United States had been given Israel "a level of support which has been quite frankly unprecedented in our history, even when we stood alone," she added.

Kerry has been the subject of ridicule in the Israeli press after his attempts to broker a ceasefire - and US President Barack Obama's heavy pressure on Israel to concede to Hamas's unprecedented demands - deeply offended Israelis living under the constant threat of rocket fire from Hamas.

The secretary of state has been described in the press as a "bull in a china shop," and an "amateur who thinks he can solve the world's problems with his presence alone."

Obummer and Kerry: the dynamic duo who turn our friends into enemies and let our enemies run wild.

Kerry is offensive and absurd, as is Obama and his so-called foreign policy.

I hate living in the past, but what I wouldn’t give to have the foreign policy of Reagan, Bush 41 or even Bush 43...at least they were unabashedly pro-American.

The Administration’s top priority is pampering Kerry’s hurt feelings.

I suggest that he don a unitard and have more photographs of himself windsurfing to burnish his image. Might be a more effective than press releases about what a Super guy he is. Maybe another botox and orange paint job...

The truth is a cruel dinner.

We could do worse than Kerry-Heinz, but I doubt Benghazi Clinton would take her old job back!

John F’n Kerry. The bastard that threw the US “Under the Bus” .... ‘70-71.

He is now Dept of State. Accused of throwing Israel “Under the Bus”.

Stripes on a tiger are hard to change. Stripes on a jackass are impossible to change.

Another pinpoint operation by the incompetent liars in the Soeterotarianist regime.

How odd for the State Dept/Foreign Ministry of the most powerful nation in the world, hitting out at "voices" in Israel criticizing Kerry for supporting what other high ranking officials in his party defend as a humanitarian organization. Wonder what State, who designates designated terror organizations, thinks when State designated terror groups are defended on humanitarian grounds by the highest ranking Democrat in the House.
