Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that if Israel rejects a two-state solution for ‘peace’ with the
Palestinian Arab Muslim people who repeatedly declare they want to drive all the Jews into the sea, “it can be Jewish or it can be democratic. NOT both.”
Good. We pick Jewish. Now all the Muslims have to leave.
Washington Times Hours after President-elect Donald Trump issued a blistering attack on Twitter, Mr. Kerry defended President Obama’s treatment of Israel, claiming “no American administration has done more for Israeli security than Barack Obama’s.”
His comments came after Mr. Trump had issued a barrage of tweets on Wednesday morning, urging Israel to “stay strong” until he takes office next month and accusing the President Obama of erecting “roadblocks” to a smooth transition.
Mr. Kerry, who’s tenure at the State Department will end when Mr. Trump takes office in three weeks, stood by the administration’s decision to allow the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution last week that called Israeli settlements on Palestinian territory a “flagrant violation of international law.”
“The vote in the United Nations was about preserving the two-state solution that’s what we were standing up for,” he said, asserting that the Israeli settlement activity has “steadily grown” in recent years, dangerously inflaming tensions with Palestinians and jeopardizing any realistic path toward peace.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has gone so far in recent days as to accuse the Obama administration of having actually orchestrated the vote. And a spokesman for Netanyahu said they have Arab nation-supplied incontrovertible evidence that the Obama regime initiated and authored the resolution.
Mr. Kerry, who spoke before a large crowd at State Department headquarters Wednesday, dismissed the criticism.
The U.S., he said, “did in fact vote in accordance with our values.” The secretary of state said critics “failed to recognize that this friend, the United States of America, has done more to support Israel than any other country.”
“This friend that has blocked countless efforts to delegitimize Israel, cannot be true to our own values, or even the stated democratic values of Israel and we cannot properly protect and defend Israel if we allow a viable two-state solution to be destroyed before our own eyes,” Mr. Kerry said.
