Arutz 7: Kerry Blames Israel
U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry
Kerry tells Senate 'Israel didn't release Palestinian prisoners...announced settlements in Jerusalem, and poof, that was it.'
Ari Yashar, April 8, 2014
US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke before the Senate on Tuesday, where he blamed Israel for the breakdown of peace talks last week.
"Israel didn't release the Palestinian prisoners on the day they were supposed to be freed, and another day passed, and another day, and then another 700 settlement units were announced in Jerusalem, and 'poof'...that was sort of the moment," remarked Kerry before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The fourth and final batch of terrorist releases, meant as a "gesture" for the talks, was set for March 29 but put on hold given the total lack of progress in talks, and the widespread protest to the unpopular move. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reportedly told Kerry the release could topple his government. (cont.)

Well, Prime Minister Netanyahu has certainly gotten that right! Joe Israeli on the street is simply not going to stand for more anymore Arab murderers to be released. Perhaps he also paid attention to Pollard's move to keep himself out of any heinous deal.
Kerry simply noted before the senate that Abbas's move [to join 15 UN agencies] was "clearly unhelpful." He added "it is the responsibility of the two sides to make decisions," noting that "both sides took negative steps."Gee! I am sure that the Arabs are shaking in their boots at such admonishment! Whereas on the Jewish side of things, when Kerry referred to "settlement units," he did not mean Hevron or K'far Tapu'ah. He meant the South Jerusalem neighborhood (That's right! "Neighborhood") of Giloh, as if that matters.
Regarding Israel's demand that it be recognized as a Jewish state, Kerry had this to say:
"The government of the United States and the president supports the notion of Israel being defined as a Jewish state," Kerry noted. "We believe that that should happen. But when it happens, and how it happens, has to be part of the negotiations. It's not going to happen in the beginning."...as if he really believes that the Arabs will change their minds??
I still cannot decide whether Kerry is delusion, evil, or both.
Nevertheless, it is the Israeli Government who is to blame for even allowing any compromise on our Divinely granted Homeland.
And we are to blame for allowing them to.

Yehezqel 36 - (the haftarah for Parashath Parah)22 Therefore say to the house of Israel: Thus says the Lord GOD: I do not this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations, from where you came. 23 And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD, says the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all the countries, and will bring you into your own land.
He brought back to our home, and this is how we repay Him, by "negotiating" over it?
