Kerry Blames Israel, Again

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



It should be no surprise that Secretary of State, John Kerry, in his statements today before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is putting most of the blame for the stalled peace negotiations with Israel. But, it still is disgusting that Kerry can’t see what is clearly in front of him…the PLO have no intention of giving an inch, while the Israelis have already released 76 terrorists from prison… The PLO only want more prisoner releases and no concessions…especially no peace agreement that would recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish People.

Republican Jewish Coalition:

Kerry Testimony Blaming Israel for Peace-Talks Impasse is Outrageous

Washington, D.C. (April 8, 2014) – The Republican Jewish Coalition strongly criticized Secretary of State John Kerry’s statements placing the bulk of the blame on Israel for the stalled peace talks in testimony today before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. 

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said: 

“After almost nine months of negotiations, during which Israel took concrete steps to advance the process, including the release of 78 prisoners – many of them terrorists – it is outrageous for Secretary Kerry to blame the Jewish state for the apparent failure of the diplomatic process undertaken at his insistence. 

“The simple fact is that while Israel has supported the peace talks, the Palestinians have consistently undercut them. Most recently, Israel has pledged to continue talks past Kerry’s original deadline and the Palestinian side has refused to do the same. 

“Secretary Kerry’s testimony today is a troubling consequence of the Obama administration’s assumption that increasing the pressure on Israel will bring the Palestinians back to a process they have repeatedly rejected.”
