Skip to comments.PLO Supports Kerry Claim That 'Israeli Occupation' Behind ISIS
Posted on 10/18/2014 3:48:40 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), the terror organization behind the Palestinian Authority (PA), called for a comprehensive strategy against Islamic extremism on Saturday - by blaming Israel for rising radicalization a la' the remarks of US Secretary of State John Kerry.
Kerry insisted on Friday that the failure of peace talks between Israel and the PA - not Western apathy to Islamism nor the US's failures to resolve tensions in Iraq - was the culprit for the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) group, sparking outrage from Israeli officials.
"There wasn't a leader I met... who didn't raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians, because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation," Kerry claimed, blaming Israel for "humiliating" - in his words - Palestinian Arabs.
PLO secretary general Yasser Abed Rabbo agreed to the claim, telling AFP that "linking the fight against terrorism and the end of the Israeli occupation is a strategic position that we support."
The PLO is "ready to work hard with the American administration and all regional leaders to develop mechanisms to implement different levels of the strategic direction announced by Kerry," he said, without elaborating.
Abed Rabbo then took it one step further, claiming that Israelis and Jews offended by the comments are supporting ISIS by default.
"Those who criticize Kerry want the terrorism of the Islamic State organization to continue to use it as an excuse to obstruct a political solution and end to the occupation," he accused.
"We hope that these balanced American statements will reflect on the Palestinian resolution in the (UN) Security Council that will be proposed in the coming days" to call for the establishment of a "Palestinian state" in Judea and Samaria.

Ketchup Head needs to be sneezed on by someone with Ebola..I wouldn’t shed a tear
The communist Vietnamese War Remnants Museum in Hanoi has a Kerry display. No, really!
This is one of those ‘facepalm’ moments, isn’t it?
Just think of the grotesque sight of innocent Ebola critters hitting a solid wall of Botox. I’d shed a tear.
Hey don’t denigrate Barney Fife like that.
He would of taken care of both Ebola and ISIS. He would have “niped it...niped it in the bud”
I apologize to all Don Knots characters for comparing even one of them to John Kerry. What was I thinking?
The entire Arab world is one huge toilet. Is that also Israel’s fault?
The entire Arab world is one huge, clogged small Greyhound bus station toilet.
Fixed it for you.
Kerry the ignorant stooge of the Islamists.
Just nuke Tehran.
Its the Jews fault.
Same old slur.
Anti semites blame Jews for all evil in the world.
Kerry is an idot.
It Israel didn’t exist ISIS would find some other recruitment tool, like the need to blow up NYC.
“If you do not understand a man’s ignorance, presume yourself ignorant of his understanding” -ST Coleridge
He apparently is pretending to sincerely believe that the only bone of contention that Muslims have with the West is that there is no Pali state. The truth that he either is unaware of or pretends ignorance of, is that Islam has an immovable agenda to convert the entire world to its benighted, evil faith that makes a mockery of monotheism. DAESH is only the most blatant proof of this that Kerry refuses to acknowledge. Instead, he goes back to the same threadbare paradigm. Ignorance, yes. But is it real or affected?
Who needs enemies ...
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Throw most dogs a steak, they eat it. One would think a Secretary of State would understand the concept, and not make incendiary comments. Unless they mean it, of course. Rank stupidity in public statements fall in the sphere of the VP
“unless they mean it”
This begs a fundamental question about John Kerry. To ‘mean it’ he needs a sincere bone somewhere in his body. Which bone? Where?
