US warns Israel over apparent distortion of John Kerry statements



The US hit back at Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday after the Israeli prime minister warned that calls for boycotts of Israel to pressure it over settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are "immoral and unjustified" and would not achieve their goal.In a public spat that reflected tensions over slow-moving Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the state department rebuked Netanyahu for apparently misrepresenting the words of the US secretary of state, John Kerry. Another senior rightwing minister accused Kerry of serving as a "mouthpiece" for antisemitic views.


Why is it when someone complains about Israel's policies is automatically labeled as an anti-Semitic? Do these people who is crying this even know what anti-Semantic even means? Just because the State dept and other nations are pointing the laws that Israel is breaking is in no way a sign of anti-Semitism. Now that Israel is showing it's true face then we should join a good portion of the rest of the world and place sanctions against Israel and cut off all aid to them. It's time to say enough is enough.

Ohhh ... I knew you were going to post this!!!


Easy counter: Why did Obamarama not like the name Barry, and opt for the middle name Hussein?

Old Netanyahu is also trying to stir up trouble by making the claim any peace deal must recognise Israel as a "Jewish State", which carries with it the implication of no right of return and also calls into question the status of Israel's rather large Arab community, with many of them believing it is a prelude to a forced exile.

It's almost like Israel doesn't want to do a deal.......

Please don't insult Jews this way. The people running Israel are Zionist claiming to be Jews. Remember Israel is a Zionist state not a Jewish state.

Roughly 35 % of Israelis want to annex the West Bank and send the Palestinians packing off to Jordan. Trust me...if they thought they could....they would.www.timesofisrael.com...

And ... the Jordanians want nothing to do with "the Palestinian problem." TBH, I wish somebody over there would just call it quits so everyone could live in peace.

The Jordanians have enough Palestinian refugees already....but the Israelis really don't care. They just want them gone so they can realize a greater Isreal.

We don't disagree. But, what do you think America's response would be if Canada started lobbing mortars over the border on a daily basis?

It should be noted that the Israeli government has made a rather big deal out of the fact that it requires the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish State....not a Zionist State.

It's easy to guess considering how America loves to bomb stuff....but I can tell you without hesitation, that if the US had militarily occupied my home and land for 45 years...you can bet your stars and stripes you'd be seeing missles every day until my people were free.

Would Americans do any different?

FYI...rockets do not fall on Israel every day.

That sounds like a zionist claim. pretend to fight for the right of semites yet have no problem systematically killing millions jews for the good of zionism... fits right into the script. what is your point?

Do you think that Canada should have a right to defend itself if America started stealing their land and started ethnic cleansing it? And as far as mortars on a daily basis can you provide some proof of that? This is what Israel claims but like usual they never provide proof. It could also be claimed that Palestine is bombing their own land seeing how it is illegally occupied by Israel. Israel is the one breaking the law here.

A better (and real life analogy) is one between the UK and Eire....

We spent the better part of 30 years dealing with terrorists which based themselves in the Republic, bombing our people, our troops and lobbing mortars over the border, but not once did we bomb Dublin, invade or start building housing estates in Cork. In fact, by and large, they were all dealt with as a criminal matter, not as a military matter.

The way Israel responds to the occasional home-made rocket blowing up fig trees is totally disproportionate to the threat, not to mention their continued insistence of building homes on land they do not have a right to.

From your source:

The remarks followed Kerry's warning on Saturday that failure to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians would damage Israel's capacity to be a democratic state and could lead to more boycotts.

Do you think for a second that the Palestinians 'want' peace with Israel?

ETA: And, oh yeah, John Kerry's chin sticks out more than Obamarama's!!

It's no "claim". It's a fact. The Israeli government has demanded that as part of any peace deal the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish State. Thats my point.

Given that the PA does recognise the state of Israel (pre-Oslo accords, so some 20 years ago) and they have stated that they can do a deal if the issue of settlements is resolved, then yes.

All the sticking points are coming from the Israeli side by basically trying to make a separate Palestinian state unworkable.

And lets not forget, the current land occupied by the state of Israel is a damned site large than the land they were given in 1947 - if they stuck to those borders, Palestine would be a viable state. It is worth noting that all the land they have "annexed" (illegal under the UN Charter, btw, without an agreement between two states) is more often than not good arable land which was farmed by Palestinians or, more pointedly, land which has the best access to water.

Well if we put a wall and check points around Toronto you'd shoot rockets too.

Different strokes for different folks.

England conducted a military occupation of Ireland and strangled them economically. That said, you won and you can write history anyway you like. Those ARE the rules.
