Kerry: If Israel doesn’t make peace with Palestinians, it risks becoming an apartheid state…

Wow. Could this administration be any more one-sided in these peace talks, that they would now suggest that if Israel doesn’t accept a two-state solution, they will become an apartheid state where Palestinians are 2nd class citizens?

Yeesh:

YNET NEWS – US Secretary of State John Kerry warned foreign leaders in private discussions on Friday that Israel will risk becoming “an apartheid state” or losing its Jewish identity if a peace accord with the Palestinians is not reached in the near future, The Daily Beast reported on Monday.

The Daily Beast acquired recordings of the comments which were made to the Trilateral Commission, a group meant to encourage cooperation between the US, Europe, and Japan.

According to the report, Kerry also noted that the failure of peace talks could lead to a rise in violence from Palestinians against Israeli civilians and condemned Israeli building settlements.

Kerry also hinted at his intentions for the near future to lay out a peace deal that Israelis and Palestinians will have to either, “take it or leave it.”

A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second class citizens, or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state,” said Kerry in the recordings.

“Once you put that frame in your mind, that reality, which is the bottom line, you understand how imperative it is to get to the two-state solution, which both leaders, even yesterday, said they remain deeply committed to.”

The Secretary of State also expressed dissapointment is leaders from both sides and said that if, “there is a change of government or a change of heart, something will happen.”

    SHUT UP KERRY!

      Thank you.

    We need a “change of government “

  • Yazz55

    Do be wary of YNET. It is an extremely biased liberal extremist organization. Their regular psycobabble is always painting Netanyahu as something evil that needs to be replaced, with a super duper liberal extremist socialist. That’s what passes for normal in that looney bin.
    Having said that, Kerry is basically threatening Israel with the EuroIslamist sanctions. Those are the boycotting of Isreali products made in the politically incorrect geographical location – Judea and Samaria.
    Hey Kerry – go wag your tongue at the Russians. Leave us here in Israel alone. We don’t need your kind of help.

    • Laurel

      Yeah and that boycott is a complete failure.

    • warpmine

      Shoot him, it’s been a long time coming for the traitor.

  • Watchman74

    I fail to see his logic, a unified state is the antithesis of an apartheid state.

    • lugita15

      His logic is that if a unified state gave all the Arabs citizenship and the ability to vote, then because the Arab population is having babies far more than the Jews, soon the Jewish population will become a dwindling minority, and Israel will cease to have its identity as a Jewish state.

      And if you denied them the ability to vote, Kerry argues that would be apartheid.

      • Watchman74

        I guess he assumes they would all go to the Palestinian state, but that is doubtful. They have it far better in Israel.

        • lugita15

          Well, whether they’ll have it better or not, I think what he’s saying is that Israel shouldn’t admit all those Arabs in the West Bank into Israel, and that it should just tell them to live under the Palestinian state.

  • NoObama

    “Swift boat” Lurch Kerry is talking tough!

    • txsrangers

      That is awesome!

    • Mary_RN

      Good one.

    • 57thunderbird

      Ha! 😀 You rang?

  • Laurel

    So apparently Kerry is dumber than I thought and doesn’t know or understand what apartheid is.

    • RWrad

      He’s even dumber than that. Moron doesn’t even begin to describe his level of stupidity. Is it any wonder our allies don’t trust us and our enemies cannot believe their good fortune with this bunch of halfwits running our government. We are soooooooo screwed!

      • Laurel

        I agree.

        • Butch

          Me to .

    • Crassus

      He’s been reading Pat Buchanan’s columns. They share similary views on Israel.

      • Laurel

        That must be the only explanation there is…but regardless of how you slice it Israel doesn’t even come close to apartheid by any stretch.

  • Gtrjag

    Israel, the Jewish state with Muslim, Arab citizens and members of parliament is an apartheid state? Try being a Christian or Jew in a Muslim country Mr. Kerry and then tell me which country is an apartheid state.

    • lugita15

      Kerry’s argument is that if all the Arabs there became citizens and got representation in parliament, Israel would quickly lose its identity as a Jewish state because the Arab population is growing exponentially faster than the Jews in Israel, so soon the Jews would make up an incredibly tiny minority.

      • txsrangers

        Mr. Kerry should check out what scripture has to say about the matter sometime.

        • Mary_RN

          I don’t think there’s a real Christian in the whole bunch.

      • Gtrjag

        Not only would they lose their identity as a Jewish they would lose their identity as the lone bastion of freedom in the Middle East. Israel is doing the only thing they can do. They can not allow a terrorist state on their border, nor can they allow a huge flux of Muslims, radical Muslims at that, to come into their country and destroy it.

  • clevonlittle

    welcome to the world according to academia……….what amazes me is that the Jewish vote is still overwhelmingly Democrat .

    • Walter Mow

      second that

    • 57thunderbird

      Yeah,I never will figure that out.

  • Conservator1

    After what Obama, Clinton and Kerry have done to America’s reputation abroad, does he thinks the Israelis and Netanyahu are going to back down?

    The Arab Winter, Syria, Iran, Putin’s Russia, the Chinese and North Korea has shown the fecklessness and weakness of Obama’s regime. Our enemies don’t fear us and our allies don’t trust us.

    And this is another example of the reason why. When wussies run America, no one listens and that includes Hamas and Israel.

    • txsrangers

      I’m sure a few red lines would make Israel think twice about trying to exist peacefully as a sovereign nation.

  • Walter Mow

    Conservatives all see the tragic results of having some one with
    Kerry’s convictions as Secretary of State, a continuation of the bumbling actions of bloody Hillary and the inane rhetoric that fails to recognize the radical expectations placed on the nation of Israel. Failure by the muslim world to accept the existence of the Israelis as a nation defies all logic. How would they act if the shoe were on the other foot? my guess is the rhetoric would be quite different. This administrations acceptance of the will of the populace and the continual effort to make the Israelis look like the bad guy disgusts me. The Scriptures tell me there will never be peace, but I believe that were the rhetoric were not so abrasive, a cease fire could be put into place that at least slows and hopefully stops the bloodshed.

  • Denny Crane

    Whose dumber, mash potato face Kerry or plugs Biden?

    • Walter Mow

      I’d call it a toss up

      • las1

    • las1

      I’ll go with plugs… it’s plugs for 500.

      • Denny Crane

        It’s very close, but plugs is definitely funnier.

    • Denny Crane

      I FOUND THE ANSWER!!!!!!!

      Eeny, meeny, miny, moe.

  • John Queue

    John “Ketchup Boy” Kerry is anathema to the United States…And one of the ugliest marxists I’ve ever seen….

  • Sentinel

    Kerry is crying because he couldn’t bring home a deal. Awww… no feather in his cap. Of course the deal was one-sided and insane to begin with… so Obama and this damned regime will do what they do best: punish those who disagree with them. GOD is with Israel, even if these morons aren’t… and America stands with Israel no matter what.

    • John Queue

      The limp-wristed slime is just finding it very difficult to keep his promises to the MB…They’re probably tightening the screws on him daily to get Israel to capitulate…HAHAHA! Poor, poor, pitiful her..or is that him? Heck, it’s too much to think about!

    • txsrangers

      Amen to that.

  • Butch

    obama and kerry are no help and never have been , I think the problem is them to things not only in Israel but throughout the world . They don’t know what to do but screw things UP . They just two dipsticks with they heads up they

  • las1

    Hey… is that monkey on Secretariat’s back named Mrs. Cass Sunstein. Just askin’.

  • txsrangers

    Leave it to Lurch and Barry 0 to alienate the one true ally we have in the Middle East and the only nation that can bring peace to that region.

    Add to that reigniting the cold war with Russia, arming our enemies, and you have the trifecta of foreign policy madness.

    • badbadlibs

      In our worst nightmares we couldn’t have conjured up a worse group of thugs to be holding such immense power.
      These democrats torch everything they touch. It’s a scorched earth policy with those thugs.
      They haven’t the sense God gave geese and I beg the pardon of geese for insulting their intelligence.

      • Mary_RN

        thugs, yes. It’s like we’ve had a flash mobbing in D.C.

  • 57thunderbird

    Do you think Lurch’s list of accomplishments will be as long as Billary’s?

    • NYGino

      About the same…zero. The only difference will be Kerry will probably insist on another Purple Heart citing the mental strain he endured. And knowing this administration he will get it.

      • 57thunderbird

        I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.

    • Mary_RN

      Just another gross waste of jet fuel.

  • NYGino

    As we will recall, Biden was supposed to be the foreign affairs policy expert. He was supposed to be the guy who covered up Barry’s inexperience in that area. Just another example of the incompetence of the whole regime.

  • kong1967

    They will never learn and Israel will always be their punching bag. How many times has Israel made concessions for peace with the Palestinians? I doubt you can count the number of times. Yet, every time it doesn’t take but hours before the terror attacks are once again coming from the Arabs. There are two choices for peace. Remove the Palestinians or remove Israel. I choose the former.

    • lugita15

      If you want a one-state solution, what do you do with the Arabs in the West Bank? Kerry’s argument is that if you give them the right to vote in Israeli elections, then Israel will quickly lose its identity as a Jewish state, because the Arabs there are having babies at a much higher rate than the Jews, so soon Jews will be a really tiny minority in Israel.

      • kong1967

        I’d kick all the Arabs out. Good-bye, good riddance. There are what….21 Arab nations? Those nations won’t accept them for a reason. Because the Palestinians serve a purpose with Israel. The goal for the Arab nations is to destroy Israel. Giving the Palestinians their own state won’t solve the problem.

        • lugita15

          So if the Arab nations don’t accept them, what do you do with them? There are 2.1 million Arabs in the West Bank.

          • kong1967

            Since there’s no way Israel can make peace with the Palestinians, I’d just let Israel handle them however they see fit. No outside demands or pressures, just let them deal with it. It’s the Palestinians that won’t let peace happen, so if they put them all on the firing squad or blow them all to smithereens, I couldn’t care less. All I know is that there’s nothing Israel can do to appease the bastards. The only possible “peace” will come when Israel is destroyed, and that ain’t gonna happen.

  • $98442859

    Israel and the descendants of Ishmael have always been at war except Israel is the chosen people whom God has brought as his own. And it doesn’t matter what men recognize or not; He does. That’s enough for me.

  • Mary_RN

    Stay home, Lurch. You’re embarrassing us again. Just shut up or start writing your memoirs or go wind surfing, whatever. But stop trying to be the Secretary of State of the United States. Oh and I forgot….he was in Viet Nam.

  • 57thunderbird

    Hey John.Why don’t you throw a couple of your fake medals at them?Maybe that will change their minds.

  • Godisright

    Sorry Israel. How can 300 Million people be wrong? I don’t know either.

    Kerry is and always has been a traitor to this country and consequently to every Ally we have.
    This is how we reward a lying-self-staging-U.S. hating idiot? Give them a job representing their antagonists? Makes a lot of sense. Not

    i have commented on other forums…But I think Kerry should be impeached for using such an incendiary word…that Obama is on record of saying that should NOT be used! Wait he will be promoted to…president? God help us!!!

  • Mac in Texas

    Coward

  • warpmine

    Coming from a hard core traitor to his uniform, his comments are as meaningful as Baghdad Bob’s “The Americans are not in Baghdad”.

  • lugita15

    Could someone tell me what’s wrong with the gist of his argument? He’s saying that if you want a one-state solution, you have to decide what to do with the Arabs in the West Bank/Judea and Samaria. You either give them citizenship and the ability to vote in Israeli elections, or you don’t. He’s saying that if you do allow them to vote, then Israel will quickly lose its identity as a Jewish state, because the Arabs there are reproducing at a much higher rate than the Jews, so their population is growing exponentially faster and soon the Jews are going to be a tiny minority in Israel. And if you don’t give the Arabs the ability to vote, then Kerry is saying that that’s like Apartheid.

    • USMC 64-68

      For a short answer: Kerry’s comments are unconscionable. Listen to Krauthammer’s short dissection of this morally vapid comment.

      Better yet, listen to Ted Cruz’ destruction of the traitor Kerry’s exposition of Dear Leader’s support for the muslims at the expense of undercutting Israel.

    Collectivists attack free enterprise, private property, and prosperity by claiming collectivism as the sole conduit for altruism while accusing individualists of being selfish and greedy.
