VIA| John Kerry announces that he’s coming to save the day as Israel grapples with escalating jihadist violence. Israel says Kerry can keep himself and his terror-supporting views back in America.
Speaking at Harvard University on Tuesday, Kerry suggested that “a massive increase in [Jewish] settlements over the course of the last years” was the cause of the current wave of Palestinian terrorist violence “because there’s a frustration that is growing.”
It needs to be noted that the various signed peace agreements do not prohibit Israel from building new homes inside the boundaries of existing settlements, which is all that has been happening.
Kerry went on to state that he would soon visit Israel to help put a stop to what he called a “revolving cycle” of provocation and violence.
Israeli Member of Knesset Yoav Kish (Likud) said Kerry can stay home if he is going to insist on such tremendous naïveté.
“Unfortunately, we have again witnessed that the Secretary of State is disconnected and lacks a basic understanding of the situation in our region,” Kish told Israeli media. “This American government has made so many foreign policy mistakes in such a short time. Kerry ignores Palestinian Authority incitement and distorts Israel’s justified war on terror. If this is his worldview, it’s better he not come.”
