Jewish organization criticizes Kerry for anti-Israel comments: still no word from Wasserman-Schultz, et al


by Allen West


As you may know, I live in South Florida, which probably has the second biggest Jewish community in America. And of course it is a community which marches lock step right to the polls to vote Democrat. Why, even the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is Jewish, along with Representatives Ted Deutch and Lois Frankel. But it’s funny — I haven’t heard a peep from them regarding the latest anti-Semitic Obama administration threat against the State of Israel.

As Sharon Schwartz of The Blaze writes,

The Anti-Defamation League says that Secretary of State John Kerry’s suggestion that Israel will face more boycotts if it does not accept the peace framework he is proposing will “create a reality of its own” and make boycotts of the Jewish state more likely.

Describing the potential for expanded boycotts of Israel makes it more, not less, likely that the talks will not succeed; makes it more, not less, likely that Israel will be blamed if the talks fail; and more, not less, likely that boycotts will ensue,” Abraham Foxman, the national director of the organization said in an open letter to Kerry.”

Certain European companies are already withdrawing their pension funds from Israeli financial institutions. And the European Union is considering these boycott actions — further demonstrating why we shall be calling that area Eurabia soon enough.

According to Ms. Schwartz’s report, Foxman questioned why the secretary of state, as the “key player in the process” had no “similar tough talk” for the Palestinians. Israel’s Minister of Communications and Home Front, Gilad Erdan, accused Kerry of “trying to incite economic blackmail against Israel,” according to quotes published in Israeli newspaper Maariv, and said “You would expect an honest and objective broker to turn to the Palestinian side and assert that there will be a price to pay for continuing to deny the Jewish people’s right to their own state, for continuing its policy of rejectionism and for continuing to use official [Palestinian Authority] media outlets and the education system to incite against Israel.”

Naturally, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki disagreed with Foxman’s comments. And the “Liar of Benghazi,” U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Monday night blasted what she called “personal attacks” on Kerry from the Israeli government, calling them “unfounded and unacceptable.”

So perhaps it’s time for that history lesson again, just in case you missed it. The word Palestine has nothing to do with nomadic Arabs who wish to delegitimize Israel’s existence. The word was introduced to the region after the second Jewish insurrection against the Romans and its subsequent defeat.

As punishment, Roman Emperor Hadrian order the region to be changed from Judea to Palaestinia. This word was a derivative of Philistia and the inhabitants of Philistia, the Phillistines, traced their heritage back to the Greeks.

Even after the First World War, all inhabitants of the area were issued passports, by the Brits, under the title of “Palestine.” The original two-state solution was Israel and Jordan, but that was derailed by a terrorist named Yasser Arafat.

So, there has never been a “Palestinian” state — the term came from the Romans as a means to disgrace the defeated Jewish people. As a matter of fact, the name of Jerusalem was changed to Aeolia Capitolina — doggone hope those Aeolians don’t ask for a right to return and demand their own state.

Kerry - AbbasIsrael’s right to exist must be recognized. Establishing a state that has never existed just because we are too stupid to know history and have been manipulated by a liberal media machine complicit with Islamic totalitarians and terrorists is insane.

What John Kerry and the Muslim-sympathetic Obama administration are proposing is to cut the width of Israel down to 7 miles at its narrowest point. And if this Islamic-centric administration does not get its way, it is supporting economic sanctions against our best ally in the Middle East.

However, just last week Obama said in his State of the Union address that any legislation for new sanctions on Iran would get his veto — as Spock would say, “fascinating.”

What I say to the liberal South Florida Jewish community is simple: blind allegiance in elections has consequences. And you can rest assured that for those American Jews who brought forth and supported the scourge known as Barack Hussein Obama, they have done their Jewish homeland brothers and sisters no favors.
