US Secretary of State, John Kerry, once more when talking about the events of the Middle East has misspoke.
“As I went around and met with people in the course of our discussions,” Kerry told his muslim audience, a dinner for the muslim Eid al-Adha, “there wasn’t a leader I met with in the region who didn’t raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians, because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation that they felt.”
This can easily been seen as a veiled attempt of blaming Israel for what is going on in recruiting for groups like ISIS. Of course Israel quickly countered Kerry’s statement.
“Even when a British Muslim beheads a British Christian”, said Trade Minister Naftali Bennett, “there will always be someone who blames the Jews,” “The assertion that the absence of peace between Israel and the Palestinians is helping the Islamic State group provides a tail wind to support global terrorism.”
Now Kerry’s attack men are refuting what Kerry said, stating they were distorted for ‘political reasons’.
Maybe Kerry, and democrats should take a hard look at muslims who they are supporting and ask the question, is this who we want as our friend? They so quickly dismiss the only democratic country in the region and go out of their way to verbally assault, belittle, and attack while giving others who do much worse a pass.
