Secretary of State John Kerry is obviously in over his head dealing with foreign policy and totally frustrated by his failed diplomatic efforts. He now seems to be frantically searching for any success he can find by joining the blame game and insulting Israel. That, at least, will get Palestinians behind him.
Sounding much like Jimmy Carter, Kerry said that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become an apartheid state. Kerry, like better men before him, can’t get Palestinians interested in making peace so he is taking the easiest and safest road by putting the onus on Israel. Palestinian rockets cannot shake Kerry’s bias.
Israel Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon dared state the obvious when he accused the Obama administration of being weak on Iran and questioned its commitment to Israel. The entire world knows Obama has been weak on Iran and that Israel will be forced to solve that problem by itself. This administration’s diplomacy, however, has been based on empty rhetoric, so honest dialogue is seen as a threat.
Kerry is making matters worse in the Middle East. That’s certainly dangerous enough for Obama to demand his resignation. Don’t hold your breath.
