John Kerry: Obstacle to Peace

Kerry believes that peace is what happens when the bad guys win.

By Daniel Greenfield, FPM

Before Obama decided to “abstain” from standing with Israel in a UN vote condemning the Jewish State, he had abstained from voting in defense of America in a UN resolution condemning the United States.

Obama, like Power and Kerry, have treated Israel just like they treated the United States.

John Forbes Kerry began his miserable career as a traitor seeking “peace” by pandering to the Communist leader negotiating on behalf of the Viet Cong. He concludes his miserable career in the Senate and as Secretary of State by going to war in the name of “peace” against the only democracy in the Middle East on behalf of a totalitarian Islamic ideology and its terrorist bands of killers.

Half a century has passed. The Berlin Wall fell. So did the Soviet Union. But John Kerry remains the same.

A few months after he slimed his way into the Senate, Kerry flew to Nicaragua to meet with the ruling Communist thugs to try and sabotage aid to the resistance against their regime in the name of “peace”. The Sandinistas treated Kerry like a pathetic patsy, humiliating him by allying openly with the USSR right after their man in Washington D.C. had successfully pleaded their case to his colleagues.

Comandante was only the first of many dictators and terrorists to humiliate John Kerry. But Kerry has never resented any of his Communist or Islamist tormentors. You can set Kerry’s hair on fire and dunk his head in the toilet to put it out… and he will still come crawling back to take your side of things.

But there is one thing that Nantucket’s greatest windsurfer will not forgive or forget. Freedom.

For the worse part of five decades, Kerry has waged a vicious war against countries that have freedom on behalf of those that don’t. Nothing gets his goat like a civilized country, his own or any other, staving off a murderous band of thugs and terrorists. And no country has endured so well in that fight as Israel.

Kerry’s career as Secretary of State has been a miserable failure highlighted by stretches of spectacularly incomprehensible stupidities, from his Syria WMD non-offer to boycotting the solidarity march after the Charlie Hebdo massacre and then trying to compensate by flying in James Taylor to sing, “You’ve got a friend.” Less publicized though was his spectacular failure to negotiate “peace” between Israel and the Islamic terrorists of the Palestinian Authority who are still trying to destroy it.

The Ketchup Gigolo threw everything he had into making “peace”. Just like his effort to make peace with the Viet Cong and the Sandinistas, not to mention sundry other tyrants and terrorists, he went in assuming that the bad guys were the good guys and the good guys were the bad guys.

In the twisted mind under those Frankenstein hair plugs, peace is what happens when the bad guys win.

John Kerry didn’t try to implement the two-state solution that he keeps raving about by encouraging Israel and the Islamic terrorists to negotiate with each other. That would have been absurd. Instead he pretended to act as an intermediary between the two sides while actually representing only the PLO.

As one Israeli official said, “We discovered that throughout the entire period, the Americans didn’t actually talk to the Palestinians, only to us.” Why bother talking to the side that you’re already on?

But, just as it had in Nicaragua, that proved to be a serious mistake. While Kerry focused on pressuring Israel to make concessions, he, like Bill Clinton, hadn’t figured out how to get the Islamic terrorists to accept them.

Kerry brought his wonderful peace proposal to Mahmoud Abbas, a fine graduate of the USSR’s Peoples’ Friendship University, along with Timochenko, the head of the Marxist FARC narcoterrorists. Kerry would, very predictably, meet with Timochenko earlier this year, despite his own State Department having a $5 million reward on his head, in yet another failed bid to force an ally to make peace with terrorists.

Excitedly, the traitor revisited the scene of his past treason, meeting with Abbas in Paris, to give him the good news. Kerry expected the terrorist leader to be overjoyed as the gift that he had brought over. Instead the terrorist turned up his nose. Kerry desperately passed the gift, of land, blood and security, extracted from Israelis, over to Obama to give to Abbas. Obama and Abbas met for two hours in the Oval Office. Abbas told Obama he might think it over and call. Like the bad date he was, he never did.

Kerry desperately wanted to be friends with the terrorists. But the terrorists didn’t want to play. “I have exhausted my time with John Kerry,” Abbas cried. “This is it.”

Instead of negotiating any kind of peace, Kerry relayed blackmail threats from the terrorists. If Israel didn’t release large numbers of convicted terrorists with innocent blood on their hands, Abbas would go to the UN. Israel released most of the prisoners. Abbas went to the UN anyway. Kerry went to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and blamed Israel for the lack of peace.

Since then John Kerry has nursed a special hatred for the Jewish State.

When Muslim terrorists murdered Jews, John Kerry blamed Israel. When ISIS kills other Muslims, John Kerry also blamed Israel. And when John Kerry’s creme brulee donut is stale, he also blames the Jews.

And you can understand why.

John Forbes Kerry isn’t just a traitor. He’s a failed traitor. His treason has never amounted to anything except publicity stunts. The terrorists and tyrants used him, abused him and threw him away. For five decades, Kerry has been trying to defect, but no one, not the Viet Cong, the Sandinistas, Assad, FARC, Iran or the PLO would take him and keep him.

Israel was his last big bid to achieve something. And it failed. And like Carter, he blames the Jews.

Kerry and the rest of Obama Inc. have tried to cloak their campaign against Israel by claiming that they are only attacking the Jewish State because they are just so very devoted to peace.

The Hero of the Purple Band-Aid has denounced Jews living in Israel as the “obstacle to peace”. But the peace that Kerry and his boss are devoted is not the peace of coexistence, but of the triumph of evil. Instead of trying to mediate, Kerry, as always, took the side of the terrorists. He failed because it is the terrorists who refuse to make peace. It does not take a Solomon to understand this simple truth.

But it takes a radical leftist to persistently refuse to see it.

The greatest obstacle to peace is not Israel. It’s John Kerry. It’s all the other leftists like him who believe that peace comes when the terrorists win, not when they are defeated. There could have been peace long ago if Israel had been allowed to win. Instead the promised two-state solution peace has never materialized. And instead of admitting that they were wrong, the peacemakers blame Israel.

It’s either that or admit that the false promises of peace were only an excuse for destroying Israel.

The obstacle to peace does not come from Israel. It comes from its enemies. It comes from the PLO and Hamas, from Obama and from Kerry. Kerry and his ilk believe that peace is what happens when the bad guys win. But that’s their big lie. Peace is what happens when the terrorists and their allies lose.

  1. An Open Letter To An Israel Hater


    Dear President Barack Obama,

    “I want to write of a deceit that will shake the world. But really, deceit implies that someone was expecting something different. We were not deceived by you. From the first, eight long years ago, Israel warned that you were not a friend.

    I want to write of the anger of having been betrayed. But really, I think you betrayed America far worse than you betrayed us and so I will leave anger to the American people.

    As you dance around your role in the United Nations Security Council vote, attempting to convince the world that you did not carefully orchestrate the betrayal of Israel by your instructions to abstain from UNSC resolution 2334, I will instead offer something different.

    Many have condemned the US action; many have ridiculed John Kerry’s attempt to explain the US vote as standard, expected, and anything but the betrayal that it was. I could echo those who insist from the start your goal was to undermine the close relationship between Israel and the US. I could…

    But I’d rather take this last opportunity to write something different. To hell with the UN Resolution 2334. To hell with the UN and, dear Barack Obama, to hell with you too. What I really want to say is that you actually don’t matter. Really. Not.

    What matters is my people…Israel…and America. Not you. Never you. Never what you planned, never what you implemented. What matters is a promise made and delivered, honored and recognized above and beyond all promises you ever made and broke, or never tried to make.

    In today’s world of science and hi-tech, it isn’t very acceptable to say that something is as it should be because God made it that way. We are so conditioned to smartphones and smart cars, that we forget not everything is determined by the machines we make and the algorithms we create. At the end of the day, this election was, above all else, a rejection of your mandate, of Hillary Clinton’s message. It was people responding that they were tired of corruption, tired of the politics of stabbing friends in the back and of ignoring the fundamental truths upon which America was built.

    The land and people of Israel are a constant reminder that there are things that go beyond simple facts. Israel was promised to the Jewish people centuries upon centuries before Christianity existed, more than a thousand years before that Mohammed guy took his first step. Through all those thousands of years that John Kerry forgot to mention in his recent speech before the State Department, we were here in this land, doing what we are doing today – living, having children, building homes and communities. You failed to change that over these eight years.

    What you could never see or accept, is that we have earned this land with our blood, with our tears, with our dreams. We have fought for it but more, we have worked for it. We have built cities, planted the deserts. We have nurtured this land, fixed the damage caused by invaders. We drained the swamps in the north, planted forests. We have reached out our hands in peace to our neighbors despite the many times those gestures have been refused.

    You have ignored the violence, the terror, the rockets, the wars they wage against us and now in these last days I will tell you that my country, my people are eternal. We are not here because the United Nations voted us here in 1947. We are here because God put us here, brought us here, promised it to us over 3,000 years ago. Really. We have outlived more nations than you could count. They dreamed of obliterating us; and they are gone. We remain. We are Israel. In ancient times, in modern times. A nation created, exiled but not destroyed. A nation returned, rebuilt, rejuvenated.

    We are a kind people. We take care of ourselves…and others. We are a brave people. We are a strong people. We are, in our own way, even a united people. Something you have never understood. You will not take our land, our home, away.

    A single day doesn’t go by in your life when you don’t use something created in Israel – computer parts, cellphone components, technology, medical devices or research. Days before you managed to get an ill-equipped team to Haiti to help in the post-earthquake rescue efforts, we were on the ground with fully equipped teams and field hospitals. We’ve helped in Turkey, Indonesia, Nepal, Kenya, even in the United States and yet, as fires burned in Israel, you were busy playing golf, or fiddling, or perhaps crafting your UN plan of betrayal. So we put out the fires and will replant what was destroyed – much of it by arson.

    You’ve spent 8 years working against Israel (and America) and now, in just 20 days from now, all you did will begin to be undone, erased. Much of this will be done by President Donald Trump and the majority he will have in the House and Senate, as handed to the Republican party by the American people.

    As for the UN resolution, I believe that the other nations on the Security Council have long pandered to the Arab nations while using the US veto as their safety net. But in refusing to issue your standard veto, what you did was make them (and you) look like fools.

    There are certain unmovable facts. The future cannot change the past, even with a United Nations resolution. It is for the UN and perhaps the US to influence tomorrow; yesterday was never yours to change. The Temple Mount has been an integral part of the Jewish religion for over 3,000 years. By voting to erase this past, the United Nations simply looks stupid. Denying Israel’s historical, cultural, and religious ties to the land we call Judea and Samaria, just makes you and the United Nations look like fools.

    No one believed the UN resolution on the Temple Mount; no one will change their minds because of this latest Security Council resolution. Except in one area. Whatever legacy you wanted to leave behind will likely be overshadowed. You will be remembered as the idiot who attempted to deny the Jewish connection to the Jewish State.

    It is already 2017 here in Israel. A new year. A few days ago, my middle son and his wife had a baby boy. That is the greatest response to you I could possibly think of. Very soon, very very soon, you will be finished. You will be the past. And despite all your intentions and those of the UN, our past and our future come together here in Israel. We are Israel, perhaps cursed by the nations but always blessed by God.”

  2. Yamit a very well written letter. I truly appreciate the following:

    What you could never see or accept, is that we have earned this land with our blood, with our tears, with our dreams. We have fought for it but more, we have worked for it. We have built cities, planted the deserts. We have nurtured this land, fixed the damage caused by invaders. We drained the swamps in the north, planted forests. We have reached out our hands in peace to our neighbors despite the many times those gestures have been refused.

    You have ignored the violence, the terror, the rockets, the wars they wage against us and now in these last days I will tell you that my country, my people are eternal. We are not here because the United Nations voted us here in 1947. We are here because God put us here, brought us here, promised it to us over 3,000 years ago. Really. We have outlived more nations than you could count. They dreamed of obliterating us; and they are gone. We remain. We are Israel. In ancient times, in modern times. A nation created, exiled but not destroyed. A nation returned, rebuilt, rejuvenated.

  3. @ yamit82:
    great letter written by Paula Stern… says it all.

    By voting to erase this past, the United Nations simply looks stupid. Denying Israel’s historical, cultural, and religious ties to the land we call Judea and Samaria, just makes you and the United Nations look like fools.

    No one believed the UN resolution on the Temple Mount; no one will change their minds because of this latest Security Council resolution. Except in one area. Whatever legacy you wanted to leave behind will likely be overshadowed. You will be remembered as the idiot who attempted to deny the Jewish connection to the Jewish State.

    my gut tells me that this event will end up being a blessing… that the creddibility of the defamers is falling apart, along with the vessels they inhabit… arab nations, muslims, europe, dem party…

    there was only one question I had with the letter
    yamit82 Said:

    There are certain unmovable facts. The future cannot change the past,

    hmmmm
