A friend of mine on FB gave notice of a story in the Israel Times about the remarks of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to Israeli PM Netanyahu that floored me. What he said, in an interview on an Israeli TV station, is so candid and truthful, in such contrast to the continual empty statements about the "peace process" that it gives me hope exasperation in Washington is finally reaching the breaking point.
Interestingly, I saw nothing from the US media about this.
The headline: "FRUSTRATED KERRY'S PEACE CRITIQUE A HEAVY SLAP IN NETANYAHU'S FACE - A patently bitter secretary of state asks why Israel keeps taking Palestinian land and why the Israeli public doesn't seem to care about it."
Of course any American who follows events in Israel knows quite well the answer to Kerry's lament - it is because the United States continues to support Netanyahu and his policies with lots of money, weapons and never-ending supportive resolutions in Congress driven by the Israel lobby with its tremendously wealthy supporters who make lavish campaign donations.
