To Secretary of State John Kerry
I hold the utmost respect for the United States but that excludes you, as it is difficult to be respectful of you.
In your quest for glory and possibly receiving a Nobel Peace Prize, all on account of Israel’s stance, you chose to ignore history and to recognize that one does not repeat what so many other failed so miserably and thus you left yourself deserved nothing but condemnation.
In the past, so many other rather clueless men and women, just like yourself, have tried, by unjust means, to force farce peace on Israel, NOT the Arabs (a/k/a Palestinians) who came along for the ride to loot Israel of whatever they could but never to deliver true peace.
The Middle East is an arena you cannot play unless you know the rules and the rules are of the Middle East Bazaar.
Unfortunately, the United States and the rest of the Western world simply refuse to learn how one deals in this bazaar.
So, how did remaining with your head sunk in Washington’s ideas and endless diplomatic visits to Jerusalem and Ramallah, exactly work for you? They did not. Israel took your bashing, your insults, your threats and the Arabs pretended they were listening and laughed inside and at the right time, when their intentional game could no longer continue, they told the world, we are not interested in this kind of peace; we are not changing our minds, we want to see Israel, the whole, being dismantled. No Jewish State here, next to us! Chalas! The Arabs have been chanting the same mantra for many years but no one wants to listen to them, I wonder why?
But your swagger got the better of you and you decided you will not fail where so many others did. Allow me to tell you why. Because you have not addressed the root cause of the problem of the conflict the Arabs have with the Jewish State, not the Jewish state has with the Arabs. So when the “peace talks” you embarked on with the least mediation talent, failed, you took the easy way out and you blamed Israel. That only proved to the entire world, the one choosing to be reading and seeing the facts and truth, not the politically correct lying game, that you have been acting as a proxy for the Arabs in Ramallah and you champion terrorists.
Biblical history, going back over 3,000 years, much before the world was introduced to the ugly world of Mohamed, attests that the land, on both sides of the Jordan River, belongs to the Jewish people, none to the Arabs who, a generation or two ago became incidental travellers into the land. Jurisprudence attests, beyond all questions and fabricated doubts, that the Arabs have no legal hold to one inch of the land from the River to the Sea. You should have taken time to study these facts well.
How sad it is that you chose to ignore all the facts.
That is that in 1948, an hour after David Ben Gurion declared Israel as a nation among all other nations, the surrounding five Arab states attacked Israel in order to destroy the nascent Jewish state before its orange orchards bloom again.
And since then there were more wars, on a large or small scale ensued, in each Israel had to defend itself from Arab aggression, trying, again and again to destroy her.
It is difficult for you to admit that you are on the wrong side of the pendulum supporting the culprits; Israel wants peace, and thus she chose the compromise road, and compromises she has made and prepared to make, but not in any price, not at the price of her demise.
Not to say that Israel’s way of thinking is infallible. But for the sake of peace and the hope that Israel could appease the unappeasable, one cannot take away the facts that Israel has tried and accepted the unacceptable while the Arabs did not budge an inch. Israel’s goal is peace, the Arabs’ goal is a Judenrein state, from the River to the Sea, and the Jews are thrown into the sea.
The Arabs do not deserve a state, they do not belong on land that is part of the Jewish state. But Israel is generous, she agreed to give them a state on her own very land, but not a state on its ruins. The conditions are not for you to dictate. It is for Israel to dictate so she is never attacked again and not one civilian is brutally murdered by an Arab. Bring an end to the wars and end the terror the Arabs inflicted on Israel since her rebirth and before. Israel has no room to err, you, in Washington still have that luxury, but not for long.
In these “revived” “peace” negotiations you have missed two important points, which is honesty and integrity. While the Arabs play the taqiyya game, a game they play with people’s mind in their attempt to achieve their goal, or as close to it as possible, Israel acts honest. But you decided to side with the gamers and their lies and thus you failed your job.
A sad part of your peace efforts Mr. Kerry, is that you shamed the American flag. Your ill representation and poor job performance has shamed the United States on JerUSAalem soil.
Mr. Kerry, the Jews in Israel have nowhere else to go. Israel is their home, their shelter, their bunker. The Arabs, on the other hand, came from other Arab lands and could go back home, where they belong.
Your economic, intifada and isolation threats will give Israel that extra oxygen to thrive, to be more secured and bring about more economic stability; you push Israel the wrong way, you get an adjustment to plan B.
Greater men and women have failed, Mr. Kerry – and I promise you, until you know Israel and until you understand the Arabs, you don’t have a prayer of succeeding.
In a hearing at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Senator John McCain already told you that you have failed to bring the conflict to an end, but you refuse to admit you have wronged. During the talks you acted as a bull in a glass menagerie shop. Swagger is not a good trait and you have an abundance of this trait. You would have been better off ending the genocide in Syria and protecting the people of Crimea from Russian aggression, but you have no ability to do so; Israel can take care of herself and she will do so along her security needs and interests, to protect and defend the 8 million people living in the Holy Land.
