John "Skull and Bones" Kerry's tour de force as Obama's Secretary of State continues. Taking a break from his tirades against Russian leader Vladimir Putin and the refusal of Eastern Ukraine to fall into line to support the US installed, neo-Nazi infested puppet government in Kiev the esteemed Mr. Kerry stumbled into dangerous territory for a US establishment figure. In a speech at what has been described as a closed door meeting of The Trilateral Commission in a Daily Beast exclusive, Kerry bemoaned the demise of the latest round of Israel-Palestine peace talks and commented that Israel was on the way to becoming an "apartheid state", a similar accusation that had poor old Jimmy Carter nailed to a cross of anti-Semitism several years back when he wrote a book with the same dreaded A word in the title.
It was astounding, after racking up the frequent flyer miles and preaching falsehoods from everything on that now retracted New York Times story by Michael Gordon on the presence of Russian special forces troops in Ukraine that was bullshit to the trumped up case for war on Syria over a mysterious use of Sarin gas on civilians that Kerry would actually blurt out something that was true. It was like the movie Liar, Liar in which a serial fibber played by Jim Carrey was as a consequence of his young son's birthday wish forced to tell the truth for one whole day. I excerpt the following from the Daily Beast Story:
Senior American officials have rarely, if ever, used the term “apartheid” in reference to Israel, and President Obama has previously rejected the idea that the word should apply to the Jewish state. Kerry's use of the loaded term is already rankling Jewish leaders in America—and it could attract unwanted attention in Israel, as well.
It wasn't the only controversial comment on the Middle East that Kerry made during his remarks to the Trilateral Commission, a recording of which was obtained by The Daily Beast. Kerry also repeated his warning that a failure of Middle East peace talks could lead to a resumption of Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens. He suggested that a change in either the Israeli or Palestinian leadership could make achieving a peace deal more feasible. He lashed out against Israeli settlement-building. And Kerry said that both Israeli and Palestinian leaders share the blame for the current impasse in the talks.
Kerry also said that at some point, he might unveil his own peace deal and tell both sides to “take it or leave it.”
Kerry's comments in addition to his own "take it or leave it" deal immediately enraged people from Washington to Jerusalem and the backlash was severe. One of the few bipartisan things that the dysfunctional and corrupt pack of perverts, jackals, crooks, Birchers, Christian nutcases and reprobates in Congress can agree on besides wars and the increased power vested in the NSA Stasi surveillance machine is of course their slavering support for a foreign country that is Israel. Kerry was right this time too much like the common phrase about the broken clock but for this he is being vilified. Long known as a flip-flopper, an accusation that he was beaten to a pulp with in the 2004 presidential election Kerry did it again and has since issued an apology. This also was in The Daily Beast:
In a statement issued Monday evening, Kerry defended his record as a supporter of Israel but also said, "if I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two state solution."
Jewish organizations in the United States like AIPAC and the Anti Defamation League quickly expressed their dismay at Kerry's private Apartheid remarks. In a statement, Abe Foxman, the president of the Anti Defamation League said ”it is startling and deeply disappointing that a diplomat so knowledgeable and experienced about democratic Israel chose to use such an inaccurate and incendiary term.” These remarks were echoed in a statement from AIPAC, the bipartisan pro-Israel lobby, which said “Any suggestion that Israel is, or is at risk of becoming, an apartheid state is offensive and inappropriate.”
Politicians also got involved in the brouhaha. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) urged Kerry to apologize, saying that the Secretary of State’s remarks "are extremely disappointing. The use of the word apartheid has routinely been dismissed as both offensive and inaccurate, and Secretary Kerry's use of it makes peace even harder to achieve." Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, shared Cantor’s outrage, saying “these comments are outrageous and disappointing.”
While it is very amusing to see Kerry hoisted upon his own petard today I am curious as to where the denunciations are from AIPAC, the Anti-Defamation League and other US domestic Israeli groups over the puppet government in Keiv's alliance with some of the most loathsome neo-Nazis in Europe. The hits from the Republicans are expected in an election year with both Eric Cantor and Marco Rubio being overly ambitious little shits trying to curry favor from the Israel Lobby. This could though provide a wonderful opportunity for Obama to jettison Kerry before the stupid bastard ends up starting World War III because the knives are now out for Kerry.
I am sure that Putin is kicking back with a bowl of popcorn laughing his ass off at Obama's pet buffoon at Foggy Bottom.
