John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis ó left, right and center ó of his recent ceasefire diplomacy. But thatís only half the story. More significant is the consternation of Americaís Arab partners, starting with the president of the Palestinian Authority. Mahmoud Abbas was stunned that Kerry would fly off to Paris to negotiate with Hamas allies Qatar and Turkey in talks that excluded the PA and Egypt.

I could feel my blood pressure rising while I read this article. I apologize if it's already been posted, but a quick search could not fine it.

Basically this administration legitimizes HAMAS, giving them equal status that you would to any political party.

The GAZANs voted these guys in power, and therefore they should pay the consequences.

Everyday. Everyday friggin day for the past 6 years of more we hear something from this administration.

This is an anti-Kerry rant, but really Kerry isn't doing this on his own hook of course.

Basically 0 supports Hamas.

Not merely he supports "the Palestinians" in a general soft headed way. 0 supports Hamas.

It all makes sense if you understand that this administration represents not the people of the United States but the government of Iran.

The Left loves Hamas because Hamas is evil. The Left hates Israel because God loves Israel.

I can remember the “outrage” by the Left over that New Yorker cover ...... it was actually the truth of the situation with those two and a predictor of the future, we just didn’t realize the full extent of what was going to be infesting the WH and thus, bringing on the ruination of the country.

Many did realize it. I realized it.

I knew it was going to be really bad and a lot of what he’s done I expected, but abandoning our people in Benghazi, weaponizing multiple government agencies against Americans to the extent it’s been done, his unabashed & visible hostility to Christians and Israel, his total contempt for the rule of law (I expected some), etc. .... nope, I admit I didn’t get the full picture at the time he was elected.

I look for things to accelerate downward in his final 2 years.

Everything so far is just a mere warmup to what his last 2 years will be.

I just hope the country can survive it and have enough left of what was intended by the Founders to rise back out of the ashes.
