I've criticized John Kerry a lot since he became Secretary of State. But this insane diatribe
by David Horowitz reminded me of the Kerry I used to admire.
It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of the siege of Gaza, as though Hamas were a legitimate injured party acting in the interests of the people of Gaza — rather than the terror group that violently seized control of the Strip in 2007...
Hamas won a democratic election. It was one of those votes that neocons prefer to ignore, like the one recently held in Crimea.
At any rate, Horowitz has become such a disgusting creature (on multiple levels) that I feel obliged to high-five anyone who pisses him off. Indeed, this administration can be said to have done something right only on those occasions when Horowitz' face turns magenta.
(Added note: Well, this is one of the rare occasions when I must publish a correction. The error resulted from a foolish mis-reading of the author's name: It's David Horovitz, not Horowitz, which means that we're dealing with two different creeps. My mistake would sting less if I could cover it with a vitticism, but I can't think of one.)
So what was Kerry's great sin? Check out what David Bernstein
has to say...
Secretary of State Kerry recently presented a cease-fire proposal. The Israeli cabinet rejected it unanimously. The cabinet includes individuals from several parties ranging from moderate left to far right, who rarely agree on anything. How incompetent a diplomat can you be to publicly offer a cease-fire proposal to a friendly (and dependent) country when you have no support whatsoever for it, and apparently no leverage to overcome that lack of support?
Y'know, these four sentences reveal more than the author probably intended to convey.
As I understand it, the terms were “Stop fighting now (including stop blowing up Hamas’s tunnels), start talking 48 hours from now.”
So now we are supposed to believe that John Kerry is an anti-Semite because he offered a ceasefire proposal that said, in essence, "stop fighting and start talking"? Seriously? That
was his sin? Do Israel's apologists have any concept of just how fucking sick
they sound to normal people?
