I don’t use the term”traitor” lightly. But read this account of john kerry’s meeting with a high ranking Palestinian Arab and you’ll know why we should at least consider using it now.
From Ben Caspit’s article, published in the Jerusalem Post – and please pay special attention to the parts I’ve put in bold print:
While the White House has confirmed that since the Jerusalem Declaration there has been a complete disconnect between the Palestinian Authority and the Trump administration, it turns out that the previous administration has maintained contact with PA officials.
Maariv reported that former US secretary of state John Kerry met in London with a close associate of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Hussein Agha, for a long and open conversation about a variety of topics. Agha apparently reported details of the conversation to senior PA officials in Ramallah. A senior PA official confirmed to Maariv that the meeting took place.
Agha is one of Abbas’s closest associates and one of the veteran peacemakers with Israel.
During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to “hold on and be strong.” Tell him, he told Agha, “that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President [Donald] Trump’s demands.”
According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that Kerry said that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.
He asked Abbas, through Agha, not to attack the US or the Trump administration, but to concentrate on personal attacks on Trump himself, whom Kerry says is solely and directly responsible for the situation.
According to the report, when referring to the president, Kerry used highly derogatory terms. Kerry offered to help create an alternative peace initiative and promised to help garner international support from Europeans, Arab states and the international community.
Ok, which word would you use?
john kerry is a despicable man. He turned on his country during Vietnam. Then he spent over 30 years in the US Senate accomplishing exactly nothing other than spouting far-left crap. Then he was made Secretary of State under Obama, and gave us the Iran “deal” – one of the stupidest, most dangerous agreements this country has made in the past century – which put the entire middle east in danger.
And now, with no political standing whatsoever – other than some delusional dream about another presidential run in 2020 – he goes to a foreign territory to condemn his country’s elected government and expose his rooting interest for the election to be undermined.
Asking again: what word would you use?
