KERRY'S 'APARTHEID' SLUR,
'ZIONISM IS RACISM' CAMPAIGN
MUST BE REPUDIATED!
OBAMA, U.S. STATE DEPT BETRAYAL
"We do not see a need for both sides to
recognize Israel as a Jewish state"
Joint Resolution Needed for Israel
KERRY MUST BE REMOVED
DEMAND CONGRESS ACT
For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. Isaiah 62:1
URGENT ACTION ALERT: Israel-hater U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told world leaders in a closed door meeting that Israel risked becoming "an apartheid state" if it fails to pursue his "peace process" and reach a two-state solution with the Palestinians…
Kerry has poisonously provided this provocative, hateful epithet to incite Israel's enemies against her. With this statement, he has clearly and nakedly declared the Obama administration's alliance with those global forces, our enemies, who in the 1980s launched the LIE "Zionism is racism" in an attempt to exterminate the Jewish State.
We will NOT allow the United States to be made complicit with Israel's sworn enemies! Kerry MUST be removed from office.
Despite a defiant "apology" from Kerry forced by outrage at home and abroad – make no mistake. Kerry's actions are deliberate efforts according to the Obama playbook to compel Israel to SURRENDER her security, and very possibly her survival as a Jewish State. He has signaled to Islam and the radical, Jew hating Left which camp Obama supports…
Congress MUST stop Kerry and Obama NOW!
"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," John Kerry told a group of senior officials and experts from the U.S., Western Europe, Russia, and Japan.
Some will argue Kerry WANTS to incite Jew-haters, the Palestinians and Muslims worldwide against Israel; others will say his own animus against Israel is simply so deep seated he cannot help himself from letting it show when he speaks. But the diplomatic message he sent in front of the globalist Trilateral Commission was crystal clear – the Obama administration stands with the Palestinian terrorists. KERRY MUST RESIGN.
CONGRESS MUST ACT NOW.
"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," Kerry claimed.
The truth: The "crime of apartheid" according to the 1998 Rome Statute is defined as "inhuman acts… committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime."
KERRY ACTS AS AN ANTI-ISRAEL AGENT. HE MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE U.S. CABINET.
Context for Kerry's comments are especially important.
These remarks came DAYS after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced a "reconciliation government" UNITING FATAH WITH HAMAS TERRORISTS. This is the one and only TERRORIST HAMAS which refuses to renounce violence or recognize Israel's right to exist. Of course, when they speak in Arabic, Abbas and Fatah leaders refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist, too!
Kerry's defamation actually COULD be TRUTHFULLY applied to the refusal of Muslims to coexist with Jews under the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank or Hamas in Gaza – but it wasn't…
Instead, it is our ally Israel that Kerry painted with all the racist connotation of "apartheid" from South African history as the Obama administration increasingly takes the side of Hamas' renewed "partner" – the Palestinian Authority!
STAND WITH ISRAEL, WHO REFUSES TO PARTNER WITH TERRORISTS.
"A strong Israel is our response to the horrors of anti-Semitism but it does not excuse the rest of the world from its responsibility to prevent this disease from returning to their own homes," Israeli President Shimon Peres remarked in his Holocaust Day address on Monday.
Israel MUST NOT be wrongly portrayed on the wrong side of history via shrill shrieks for a two-state solution – and certainly NOT by John Kerry or ANY official United States representative! AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL!
And certainly NOT when one of the two parties refuses to recognize the right to exist by the other!
Already, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is calling for Kerry's resignation over the "apartheid state" defamation – one that then-candidate Barack Obama explicitly REJECTED in 2008 when he wanted America's votes! Rep. Eric Cantor called for an apology… but Kerry's apology is meaningless because the damage is done, and will be done AGAIN by Obama and Kerry in the days ahead.
We need action from Congress – TODAY.
Congress must AC, forcefully, in support of our ally before Kerry's renewed international hate campaign against Israel can gain accelerated traction. Kerry has MALICIOUSLY handed ammunition to global Jew hatred – and ONLY his removal from office can now defuse and disarm that explosive weapon!
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) rose immediately in response from the Senate floor to call for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's resignation following the secretary's comments at the Trilateral Commission. The use of "apartheid" terminology toward the Jewish State is a blatant renewal of the "Zionism is racism" propaganda campaign crafted by the Soviets in the 1980s and deployed by anti-Semite states of the world designed to annihilate Israel. Kerry's morally corrupt claim that Israel could become an "apartheid state" if the Jewish State does not comply, and his proposed two-state solution to the peace Israeli-Palestinian peace process fails is a betrayal of our democratic ally and DISQUALIFYING of office.
Sen. Cruz rightly said, "There is no place for this word in the context of the State of Israel. The term 'apartheid' means 'apart'–different, isolated – the state of the victims of apartheid with which the Jews are all too familiar. The notion that Israel would go down that path, and so face the same condemnation that met South Africa, is unconscionable. The United States should be aggressively asserting that Israel can never be made an apartheid nation while America exists, because America will be with Israel regardless of the status of any diplomatic process.
"The fact that Secretary Kerry sees nothing wrong with making such a statement on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day demonstrates a shocking lack of sensitivity to the incendiary and damaging nature of his rhetoric. It is my belief that Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel, he should offer President Obama his resignation and the President should accept it."
Sen. Cruz was one of three U.S. Senators to vote against Secretary Kerry's nomination, citing his belief that as Secretary of State, John Kerry would place what he considered to be the wishes of the international community above the national security interests of the United States.
Video of Sen. Cruz's remarks ARE HERE:
The full text of Sen. Cruz's prepared remarks is below:
"Every member of this body has expressed our commitment for the United States to stand resolutely with our friend and ally the Nation of Israel. Doing so is right, and it is overwhelmingly in the national security interests of the United States.
It was therefore with great sadness that I read this morning about the comments of Secretary of State John Kerry, who reportedly suggested at the Trilateral Commission that Israel could become an "apartheid state" if his proposed two-state solution to the peace Israeli-Palestinian peace-process fails.
Secretary Kerry has long experience in foreign policy, and he should understand that words matter. 'Apartheid' is inextricably associated with one of the worst examples of state-sponsored discrimination in recent memory – the apartheid system in South Africa that was ultimately brought down by the heroic resistance of Nelson Mandela inside the country, supported by a concerted campaign of diplomatic and economic sanctions by the international community.
There is no place for this word in the context of the State of Israel. The term "apartheid" means "apart" – different, isolated – the state of the victims of apartheid with which the Jews are all too familiar. The notion that Israel would go down that path, and so face the same condemnation that met South Africa, is unconscionable. The United States should be aggressively asserting that Israel can never be made an apartheid nation while America exists, because America will be with Israel regardless of the status of any diplomatic process.
Fifteen months ago – almost to the day – John Kerry was confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 94-3. Despite my preference for giving the President the cabinet members of his choice, I found I could not join the vast majority of my colleagues and support his nomination because I was convinced that as Secretary of State, John Kerry would place what he considered to be the wishes of the international community above the national security interests of the United States. I fear with these most-recent ill-chosen remarks, Secretary Kerry has proven those concerns well founded. Rather than focusing on our clear national security interest – which is continuing to guarantee Israel's security through our unquestionable commitment to it – Secretary Kerry has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to countenance a world where Israel is made a pariah because it will not sacrifice its security to his diplomatic initiatives. It is no wonder that Israel's Defense Minister remarked in January that "The only thing that can save us is for John Kerry to win a Nobel Prize and leave us in peace."
The fact that Secretary Kerry sees nothing wrong with making such a statement on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day demonstrates a shocking lack of sensitivity to the incendiary and damaging nature of his rhetoric. Mr. President, it is my belief that Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel, he should offer President Obama his resignation and the President should accept it."
Israel is being THREATENED and COERCED by Kerry and Obama because the Jewish State has RIGHTLY announced suspension of U.S.-sponsored peace negotiations with the Palestinian Authority in the wake of the PA's pursuit of a unity agreement between rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas.
The top-level inner cabinet of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ministers "decided unanimously that it will not negotiate with a Palestinian government that incorporates Hamas, a terrorist organization that seeks the destruction of Israel," said a statement issued after an Israeli emergency cabinet meeting. Israel also plans to introduce economic sanctions against the PA, to reportedly include withholding tax revenues collected by Israel on behalf of the Palestinians.
Enough is enough!
In a series of fast-moving events over recent weeks, Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority gained complete control of U.S. Sec. of State John Kerry's "peace" agenda, putting paid to any pretense of even-handed dealings with Israel.
Abbas made a public display of signing applications for Palestinian admission to 15 United Nations bodies, including treaties on human, civil, disabled and women's rights and the Fourth Geneva Convention. This provocation was in direct violation of previous PA assurances precisely against such unilateral action.
And of course, it provoked the desired effort from Kerry – more "warnings," calls and unremitting pressure from Washington directed at ISRAEL to capitulate to NEW Palestinian demands!
And NOW – the complete abandonment of Israel in Kerry's "apartheid" signal to the world that Obama stands with the terrorists!
Kerry moving to implicitly endorse the "Zionism is racism" attack against Israel is a frontal assault on Israel by Obama…
Obama seems ALWAYS to do his best to undermine Israel and empower the Arabs… He is carving a new course of betrayal of the Jewish State because months of peace talks coordinated by his Secretary of State John Kerry thus far have been fruitless in the face of Palestinian intransigence over Israel's right to exist. Testifying before the House, Kerry noted that the United Nations had recognized Israel as a Jewish state, as did Yasir Arafat, the former leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
"I think it's a mistake for some people to be raising it again and again as the critical decider of their attitude toward the possibility of a state and peace," Kerry said.
Be sure you focus on this: according to Kerry and Obama, the long standing insistence of the U.N. and "best conscience" of the West to ensure Israel's right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish People is "a mistake" as a "critical decider of their attitude toward… peace."
Obama's betrayal of Israel is now naked and blunt. The United States' official position was announced that there is no need for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement, according to remarks made by State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
This is a despicable reversal of American policy and standing assurances protecting Israel's right to exist as a sovereign Jewish state that has emboldened the Palestiniansâ€™ present aggression. Congress MUST assert its powers and forcefully clarify the United States' reliability and honor as a geopolitical and moral ally in the never-ending war against evil.
DEMAND KERRY'S RESIGNATION OR REMOVAL!
DEMAND Congress enact a Joint Resolution AT ONCE to stand with Israel and REBUKE Obama's treachery!
American and multi-lateral policy historically, U.N. Resolution 242, the Oslo and Camp David Accords ALL have affirmed the obligation of the intransigent Palestinians to forswear terrorism and acknowledge the legitimacy of the Jewish State of Israel, and for all nations to respect the prerogatives of Israel and Palestinian authorities to negotiate their own peace and border treaties. These solemn and binding agreements MUST prevail over Barack Obama's dangerous duplicity and pro-Palestinian proclivities.
U.S. long-standing assurances, support and previous binding resolutions that Israel shall negotiate her own borders with her Arab enemies, once they cease hostilities, must stand – unimpeded by Obama's rank betrayal – if America is to have any international credibility, is to merit any respect with decent humanity, and is to retain any favor with God for honoring His Word.
Genesis 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed."
Simultaneously, Iran and other Muslim states continue their renewed campaign of defamation AND aggression against Israel over alleged Palestinian lands. Any further compromise on unilateral Palestinian "statehood" or Israeli territorial boundaries imperils Israel and could result in the total annihilation of our greatest Middle Eastern ally. The 1967 "borders" Obama still is attempting to dictate to Israel are in fact the armistice lines of repeated Arab attacks against the Jewish state, are INDEFENSIBLE, AND NOT rightly the basis of any negotiation for permanent Israeli borders.
The State Department's Psaki, who spoke to the Palestinian Authority (PA)-based Arabic language Al-Quds newspaper, said, "The American position is clear, Israel is a Jewish state. However, we do not see a need that both sides recognize this position as part of the final agreement."
The present impasse and "breakdown" in the Kerry-Obama "peace talks" will be much decried, but their halt will do more GOOD than HARM! It seems YOUR prayers and advocacy are being answered, as there has been a rising spirit among the Israeli cabinet to resist diplomatic accommodations that lead to capitulation to evil. KEEP PRAYING this whole flawed and malicious "peace process" cannot go forward. Please pray the further progress of a terrorist "reconciliation" government of the Palestinian Authority partnering the PA-Hamas-Fatah reveals the truth to the world about Palestinian intentions toward Israel! Pray the Israeli cabinet HOLDS THE LINE and VOTES DOWN bad negotiations, which will SUSPEND the Kerry-Obama peace talks, so clearly NOT in Israel's interest.
Please pray for Netanyahu – for his protection and that he will be able to continue to withstand the enormous pressure exerted upon him now by the Obama administration because of the Palestinians humiliating Kerry. We who love Israel must stand firm until the destruction passes us by. One of the chief instruments of this White House is intimidation and threats. Together with mobilizing counterweight on Obama from Congress, we need the Lord to intervene. This is a crucial time of testing. Pray Netanyahu will not collapse under the weight of the incessant duplicity and badgering as did Rabin and Sharon. Please pray protection against lies from the Leftist media in Israel, as well as the United States.
Pray as well that ANY "negotiations" necessary to accommodating the PA linked with Hamas will be rejected. Israel has NO peace partner in the Palestinians. Pray there is no making concessions to evil; no making concessions of land or settlements, or the freeing of any further terrorists from Israeli jails. THE "TWO-STATE SOLUTION" IS A TRAP FOR ISRAEL! Judea and Samaria are promised to the Jews; the Palestinians already have their homeland in Jordan. Suspension of negotiations with bad actors will block this false, destructive "peace process" from going further – and protect Israel. We should pray that every stage of this so-called process may be halted by the Arm of the Lord. All observers in Israel admit that enormous pressure is being exerted from the U.S. government to deal unfairly with the Jewish State, in political appeasement of the Palestinian Authority. We need YOU to BLAST Congress and insist they act boldly to protect Israel's ability to defend herself, and the West!
As observed by foreign affairs expert Caroline Glick, Obama is
There is a liberal majority of the Democrat party that no longer stands foursquare with Israel – and under the "leadership" of Obama, the betrayal of Israel is becoming party policy.
IT MUST NOT BECOME AMERICA'S POLICY.
CONGRESS MUST NOT DISHONOR OUR NATION BY BESMIRCHING OUR RIGHTFUL HISTORY OF SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH STATE.
AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL. PLEASE PRAY AND ACT FOR THE SAFETY OF ISRAEL…
