John Kerry’s comments about the recent wave of terrorist attacks spreading across the State of Israel are contemptible.
In response to the spate of murders of Jews, Kerry attempted to diagnose the cause by stating, “There’s been a massive increase in settlements over the course of the last years and there’s an increase in the violence because there’s this frustration that’s growing.”
This is an astonishing justification for cold-blooded murder of Israeli men, women and children. John Kerry is offering excuses for the terrorists and blaming the victims with these malignant words. This isn’t the first time he has made such outrageous comments with regards to Israel and his reasoning and logic reveal how broken his moral compass has become.
Kerry’s unfair and unjustified explanations don’t target only Israel. He has never apologized for the false and overstated accusations that he made during the Vietnam War against his comrades-in-arms. His slander included painting them as ravaging hordes in Genghis Khan’s army, using the actions of a few to broadly tarnish the heroism of the American military.
Kerry’s unfair bias and warped perspectives against the State of Israel have surfaced repeatedly in recent years.
In February 2014, Kerry warned that if Israel did not make peace with the Palestinians, it would have to face the “increasing delegitimization campaign that has been building up. People are very sensitive to it. There are talk of boycotts and other kinds of things.”
Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League slammed these comments. “Describing the potential for expanded boycotts of Israel,” Foxman wrote, “makes it more, not less, likely that the talks will not succeed; makes it more, not less, likely that Israel will be blamed if the talks fail; and more, not less, likely that boycotts will ensue.”
Only two months later, Kerry said in a closed-door meeting, “A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. 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.”
