Americans have the “right to be stupid”, said John Kerry.
He believes that “poverty causes terrorism”Â and that Israeli settlements are “illegitimate”.Â John Kerry believes that Islamic terrorists only want to kill us “because they have no jobs”Â and recently told us that “the U.S.Â will be there for Saudi Arabia, for the Emirates, for Qataris, for the Jordanians….” without mentioning Israel. A few days Â ago he told Israel that Â theÂ US/Vietnam is an Example for Israel/Palestinians, which Â is a bit of a worry. His ignoble behaviourÂ worked out really well for him. It didn’t work out too well for Americans or the free Vietnamese who were left behind. Now he is back pressuring Israel to surrender:
If this report is accurate and this ever actually happened, it would be a disaster. The Christian Science Monitor is right to reference Power’s infamous 2008 quote below, because U.S. troops protecting the border of the new jihad state of “Palestine” would inevitably end up fighting against Israel — after all, “Palestine” would not consider itself to be threatened by Egypt or Jordan or Lebanon or Syria. The U.S. would end up directly abetting the “Palestinian” jihad. “Israeli-Palestinian peace talks: Is Kerry offering up US troops?,” by Anna Mulrine for theÂ Christian Science Monitor, January 3:
Secretary of State John Kerry is proposing to offer up US troops to help secure the borders of the new state of Palestine, according to some unconfirmed news reports coming out of Israel.How plausible is the possibility? And would it be a good idea, or, as some military analysts argue, would the White House would be “nuts” to consider it? (Continued below the fold)
Pali protestors: ‘Kerry go home, there is no place for you in Palestine’
At last, something the Palestinians and Israelis can agree on.
- Americans don’t want him…
- Jews don’t want him….
- Palestinians don’t want him…
Gee, and he’s so eager to give them a state: (the video is set on auto start, so I put it below the fold)
Chicago Tribune: Palestinian protesters condemned the latest efforts by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to advance peace talks with Israel, using chants evoking the Arab uprisings and telling him to go home. Hours before Kerry was due to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a raucous crowd of several hundred took to the streets of Ramallah, the West Bank’s de facto capital, chanting “Kerry, you coward, there’s no place for you in Palestine!”
The US troops would be tasked with helping to prevent anti-Israel forces from coming out of Jordan and reaching Israel, according to Debkafile, an Israeli intelligence and security news service.
Palestinian officials are demanding that Israel move its forces from the Jordan Valley, where the US troops would be stationed. This point may have proved pivotal in the US administration’s reported decision to offer them up.
Samantha Power, then a Harvard professor and now the US ambassador to the United Nations, seemed to indicate in a 2008 interview with Harry Kreisler of the University of California at Berkeley’s Institute of International Studies that crisis in the region could possibly be ameliorated by the introduction of US troops to provide security needs.
To head off a human rights crisis in the West Bank and other Palestinian territories “may mean, more crucially, sacrificing – or investing, I think, more than sacrificing – literally billions of dollars, not in servicing Israel’s military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine.Â In investing billions of dollars it would probably take also to support, I think, what will have to be a mammoth protection force … a meaningful military presence,” she said. “Because it seems to me at this stage – and this is true of actual genocides as well, and not justÂ major human rights abuses, which we’re seeing there – is thatÂ you have to go inÂ as if you’re serious. You have to put something on the line.”…
