John Kerry is a first rate idiot for comparing the Israeli flotilla raid to a terrorist act. There wouldn’t have been any violence on that flotilla whatsoever if the Israeli soldiers boarding the ship didn’t find themselves fighting for their lives after they were mercilessly surprise attacked by the jihadi Turks. Israel did nothing wrong and for Kerry to pretend otherwise is offensive.
Read his remarks below:
WASHINGTON TIMES – Mr. Kerry said he understood the anger and frustration of those Turks who lost friends and family in the raid. Mr. Kerry, a former Massachusetts senator, said last week’s Boston Marathon bombings made him acutely aware of the emotions involved.
“We have just been through the week of Boston, and I have deep feelings for what happens when you have violence, when something that happens when you lose people that are near and dear to you,” he said. “It affects the community; it affects the country. But going forward, you know, we have to find the best way to bring people together and undo these tensions and undo these stereotypes and try to make peace.”
