Kerry's 'Apartheid Israel' Outburst Is A Window Into The Future
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made some interesting remarks on Israel and the Middle East peace process over the weekend that reveal not only the Obama Administration's mindset, but a signpost as to its future direction.
The Left-leaning Daily Beast got its hands on a recording of Kerry speaking before the Trilateral Commission before a number of world leaders described by the UK Telegraph as 'senior US, Western European, Russian and Japanese officials' (who was in the audience hasn't been revealed yet).
Kerry said that unless Israel surrenders to Palestinian demands for a peace deal, it could become ‘an apartheid state,’ like the old South Africa.
Kerry also said that a failure of Middle East peace talks would lead to a resumption of Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens, as though that isn't happening on a daily basis, criticized what he called Israeli settlement-building and said that a change in Israeli or Palestinian leadership would make a peace agreement more possible.
"A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative, said Kerry. "Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second class citizens - or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state."
Oddly enough, it's not Israel but the Palestinians who are constantly promoting a one state solution in their mosques, media and schools. And an apartheid one, where the Jews have been driven out.
Kerry also said that at at some point, he's thinking about presenting his own peace framework and telling both sides to “take it or leave it.”
The Secretary seems to have forgotten that he already did that, and that it was the Israelis that accepted it as a starting point and Mahmoud Abbas that rejected it.
It's worth noting that Kerry singles out Israel, which has a 20% Arab minority with full voting and legal rights as the 'apartheid state'. Meanwhile, both the Arab occupied areas of Judea,Samaria and Gaza contain not a single Jew and never will according to Mahmoud Abbas' own statements, and Kerry is apparently just fine with that kind of judenrein.
The focus here is, as usual entirely on Israel. It is Israel who needs to make concessions, Israel who had better give in and deal with a Palestinian government with the genocidal Hamas as a partner, Israel who needs to stop building homes for its people, Israel who had better surrender or face even more arb violence.The Arabs whom identify themselves as Palestinians need do nothing.
While this nonsense appalled a number of people within the pro-Israel community here in America, it's important to realize that Kerry wasn't just mouthing off on his own.
U.S. State Department spokesmouth Jan Psaki commented that Kerry was simply stating his views.
“Secretary Kerry, like Justice Minister Livni, and previous Israeli Prime Ministers Olmert and Barak, was reiterating why there's no such thing as a one-state solution if you believe, as he does, in the principle of a Jewish State. He was talking about the kind of future Israel wants and the kind of future both Israelis and Palestinians would want to envision,” she said. “The only way to have two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two-state solution. And without a two-state solution, the level of prosperity and security the Israeli and Palestinian people deserve isn't possible.”
The Israeli politicians Psaki holds up as role models are quite revealing. There's Tzipi Livni, who has a miniscule political constituency in Israel because of her toxic persona and general incompetence and was so despised by other Israeli politicians that none of them, not even the Leftist Labor or Meretz were interested in forming a coalition government with her Kadima party to make her prime minister, after which Kadima imploded. There's Ehud Barak, who offered Yasser Arafat 98% of Judea and Samaria along with half of Jerusalem only to have Arafat refuse and use this weakness as his signal to launch a war against Israel's civilians. And Ehud Olmert, one of Israel's worst and most corrupt leaders who been convicted and is headed for prison. These three dysfunctional, failed politicians are symbolic of the Obama Administration's choice for Israeli leadership. Weak and oh so flexible, you understand.
But Psaki's statement along with a few other details tells us quite a bit. First of all, her statement in an official capacity tells us that John Kerry is definitely not off the reservation here. He is voicing the views of the Obama Administration. This is simply a case of the servant carrying out the Massa's orders, either in fact or by inference, and he will not suffer as a result. Why would he?
President Obama wants to end the alliance between Israel and America. He said so directly in 2009 after he was elected in no uncertain terms and his actions since have underlined it. America's official stance now mirrors the EU's.The only small brake on this has been the fact that at least 2/3 of congress is still pro-Israel, in part out of conviction and in part because almost all of the $3 billion in U.S. aid Israel receives gets spent here in the U.S. and goes into the pockets of America's defense industry, creating jobs, taxable economic activity and financing joint weapons projects utilizing Israeli high tech.
But President Obama has been successful in making Israel a partisan issue. The perfidy of the majority of America's Jews whom voted for Obama made this possible and provides cover for it.
As I pointed out, the Obama Administration has already signaled that it has endorsed the new PLO-Hamas unity deal.
What we'll see, as Kerry has so helpfully signaled is a de facto normalization of the U.S. relationship with Hamas, another part of President Obama's enthusiasm and patronage of the Muslim Brotherhood. And we will see Israel presented with an ultimatum - that 'take it or leave it' deal Kerry was blustering about - to accept the diktats of the new PLO/Hamas government.
If Israel refuses, watch as the United States takes a major part of collaborating with the EU to install a genocidal Arab reichlet on Israel's borders via the UN.
At the same time, look for the president to send cash and political operatives to work on getting Leftist Israeli politicians like Labor's Isaac Herzog and a leftist coalition elected..exactly what President Bill Clinton did to shove Oslo through and empower Yasser Arafat 'for peace'.
The bottom line is that on Yom HaShoa, the day Jews commemorate the victims of the Holocaust the Obama regime is working on putting together its support for forces that want very much to be part of the next one.
Simply put, they are knowingly aiding and abetting evil.
