US-Israeli Relationship In Jeopardy, Kerry "Ruined Everything"

Tyler Durden's picture

Another red line crossed? As AP reports, Obama administration officials were fuming Monday over a torrent of Israeli criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Israeli media commentators have leveled almost nonstop criticism at Kerry in recent days over his attempts to bring Qatar and Turkey — two countries viewed by Israel as strong Hamas supporters — into the cease-fire negotiations - "U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything." The White House is not happy - in unusually harsh language, officials said the criticism of Kerry could put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. They also said the personal attacks on Kerry crossed a line.

 

As AP reports,

Obama administration officials were fuming Monday over a torrent of Israeli criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

 

In unusually harsh language, officials said the criticism of Kerry could put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. They also said the personal attacks on Kerry crossed a line and were particularly disappointing at a time of active conflict.

 

Israeli media commentators have leveled almost nonstop criticism at Kerry in recent days over his attempts to bring Qatar and Turkey — two countries viewed by Israel as strong Hamas supporters — into the cease-fire negotiations. Kerry was also being accused of abandoning some of Israel's key demands during the negotiations.

 

In trying to implement the cease-fire over the weekend, "U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything," wrote columnist Ari Shavit in Monday's Haaretz, Israel's leading liberal newspaper. "Very senior officials in Jerusalem described the proposal that Kerry put on the table as a 'strategic terrorist attack'."

 

...

 

U.S. frustration with Israel seeped into the White House's readout of a phone call Sunday between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The White House said Obama told Netanyahu that the U.S. had "serious and growing concern" about the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza. He also called to an "immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire," according to the White House.

Kerry and company have screwed up much more than the US-Israel relationship.

If John Kerry can fuck up the US-Israeli relationship, then I say give him a nobel peace prize, and promote him to President.

Really, who cares about Kerry and Obama's reaction to being put down by Israel?  It's just tabloid noise.

Arius's picture

Why am I not suprised ... Kerry mislead Obama all along ... a terrible choice for Secretary of State ... completely incompetent person, whose only qualifications is that Vietnam speech ... how much can one milk a speech/?? i guess all his life.

 

on the bigger picture, it is sad for America.  I hoped this country would fix his problems, these people had been given a great opportunity to show the world some leadership and yes, that it can be different this time ...

UNFORTUNATELY, no, it is not different and it is sad to say .... this country will fall too ...

Now about those 3 Israeli teenagers that Israel said were killed by Hamas and served as the excuse to bomb Gaza.

May we please see the evidence of their murder by Hamas?

The Clustefuck just keeps on growing. The border, Obamacare, the IRS, Benghazi, ISIS, MH17, Russia, Gaza/Israel, China getting aggressive, North Korea acting out, Chicago is a war zone, and Ebola is one plane trip away from the mainland.

Will someone please put the grown ups back in charge?

Isn't Obama just about out of red paint by now?

Obama has surrendered the US to illegal aliens and Israel must similarly surrender to Gaza. So speaketh the Great & Merciful Ruler Obama, so it shall be.

John Kerry is a Jew. His real name is John Cohn. Just look at his face, for God's sake.

Kemal Ataturk, founder of Turkey, was a Jew - along with most of the Young "Turks". The Turkish military is riddled with Jews.

Quatar paid for a lot of the Al Quideda weaoonry and wages for the Libya and Syria operations. They are also a Jew poodle.

This is just an opportunity to say "poor Israel" in the Jew media and put pressure on Turkey/Quatar to come further under Jew control.

88s, bitchez.

That's true lol! I started thinking about watching that movie again even before the ebola scare. If there was a time when there was more crazy shit going on at once than now I can't recall it.

James Cole: Look at them. They're just asking for it. Maybe the human race deserves to be wiped out.

Jeffrey Goines: Wiping out the human race? That's a great idea. That's great. But more of a long-term thing. I mean, first we have to focus on more immediate goals.

How did we end up with so many traitors in our government?  Where are all the whistle blowers?  Oh, wait...

Monty Burns's picture

Ask the dual-citizens.  They'll know.

DaveyJones's picture

there's plenty of blowers, just no whistles

PrintemDano's picture

There were a few whistleblowers, 1] the MSM ignores them ergo the average DWTS American is unaware of the massive treason and tyranny.

2]They tend to end up in the crosshairs of our treasonous government agencies like the IRS.

3] One whistleblower had to go to Russia...now what was his name.....?

Israeli criticism is probably best, and only meaningful endorsement a secretary of state could have.  Go John !!  It would be much worse for the USA if JK was in the Israeli pocket.  The more he bugs them, the better.

mkkby's picture

Your head is up your shorts, so just open your eyes and you'll find them.

The NSA data goes to Israel before it even gets to US analysts.  Therefore, if Israel really wanted Kerry/Obama out, they'd be out.  These guys are all controlled by blackmail and bankster money.  If they were too clean to be blackmailed, they never would have gotten the funds to be elected.

Evidence of this has been on ZH weekly for the past several years.

Lurch is a joke and has always been a joke... The ONLY reason GWB got re-elected in 2004 was because Kerry was the best the Democrats could muster for a candidate... He is a perfect example of why the aristocracy class should be banned from politics altogether... Just because you have $$$ doesn't mean you know Shit from Shinola...  Case in point: John Kerry...

Dear Pinto the Airhead:

 

The death of the Israeli teenagers was not the reason for the invasion - the reason was the relentless rocket attacks on Israel.

 

You, like the other Hamas idiots, need to go back into your tunnels until they can be blown up with you inside them.

MarsinScropio.... Listen up son...

 

You wrote: The death of the Israeli teenagers was not the reason for the invasion - the reason was the relentless rocket attacks on Israel.

 

First of all, the real reason for the invasion is simple:  Pure land grabbing genocidal evil known as Zionism.  Let's not start the clock back to when the teenagers (who were not killed by Hamas in all probability) were killed.  Start the real clock for when the real Zionist invaders came to being.

 

Second of all, the "death of the Israeli teenagers" is the first reason given by israel, then they changed it to "rocket attacks", then once again, the zionists swiched to "tunnels"; by the time Nuttin-Yahoo murders all the palestinians, the final reason will more likely to be the real reason, which is that  "Zionists are no different to Nazis". 

 

Third of all, the rockets thrown by Hamas, are nothing more than an act of self-defence, under human rights - i.e. the right to resist the Israeli occupation - and to resist the Israeli blockade; let's not forget that the israeli blockade is against International Law

 

Thus, Hamas has the right to fight occupation, and the blockade - which is an act of war according to international law.

 

Now, the Zionists, media whores and Ziocon Bankers have control over many nations, but to this day, and not without trying, only 33 nations from 200 consider Hamas to be a terror organisation.  The other 167 nations DON'T.  That's like 85% of the global population that don't think Hamas is a terror group!

 

You wrote: You, like the other Hamas idiots, need to go back into your tunnels until they can be blown up with you inside them.

 

Ahh, So now we see that the Hasbara is running out of ideas, so they resort to childish mis-information; to the point of wishing the murder (at the hands of the so-called IDF no less) of fellow Zero Hedge posters who dared to disagree with any Zionist propaganda.

 

But, let me be the adult here since you've proved incapable.  Sure, there are tunnels, but mostly these are used to smuggle bread and essential supplies that Israel has deliberately starved the Gazans off in order to kill them in that big open prison (much like the Nazis tried to to the Khazars back in the 1930s / 1940s).

 

Thus, Zionism is a modern day form of Nazism.  Q.E.D.

It is so hard to condemn some of the things Israel does without coming across the wrong way. You, sir, are good and level-headed. I logged in just to upvote you.

hot sauce technician's picture

Seig hiel you grade d propagandist. Your post is so full of half truths and baseless allegations that I seriously wonder how you function on a mundane day to day basis with other people. Have you ever even been within a 5 hundred mile radius of Israel /Palestine? An ingot of Au says you haven't. Go fuck yourself. I don't even attempt to respond to your Goebbelsesque post as it would be futile to engage a feeble minded internet wannabe hero like yourself in debate. I still believe there are intelligent people out there who look past the demagoguery you spout to deem it unnecessary. Again, go fuck yourself.

Hot Sauce Technician Wrote: "Seig hiel"

 

"Seig Hiel" you say?  Well well well.

 

Finally! The mask of the zionist is slipping, and its true mother tongue is out there!!!  Always knew Zionists were Nazis, and as per usual, it is confirmed by one of their own.

 

Also, the reason you don't dare respond / engage me, is because the truth gave you a good spanking.  You can't do anything but continue to drink the blood of innocent children.  It is what your tribe is all about; but no amount of blood will make the likes of Janet Yellen look human that's for sure!

 

p.s. I've been to the holy lands.  Saw the the real Nazis wearing IDF uniforms.  Disgusting sight.

 

What else have you got Hasbara?

The interesting thing is that about 2-3 weeks before the Israeli teens went missing...two Palestinian boys, 16 and 17, were shot to death. The Palestinians asked for some sort of answer and as usual the IDF that shot at them denied they shot them and said they only use rubber bullets. They found a 5.56 bullet in the boys backpack after it had entered his chest and landed in his book pack. Nothing was done. No media coverage here on this incident or very played down....

This is what starts things and then everyone in Europe knows about it and every where else but in the OWNED media in the US we are fed a line of bullshit. Wake up before it is too late.
