Delusional Diplomacy :: by Jan Markell

What is John Kerry doing? Have you heard the term, “the most dangerous man on earth?” Well, maybe that’s a stretch and maybe it isn’t. But the wreckage he is creating is staggering. Sure, much of it is coming down from his boss, Barack Hussein Obama.

The Obama/Kerry locomotive has been trying to jam a peace deal down Israel’s throat. They threaten that if Israel doesn’t accept the ludicrous terms, it would de-legitimize Israel. They leave out of the equation the fact that Israel has no peace partner. Time after time the “peace partners” walk out as has Arafat, Hamas, and Abbas.

In Bill Koenig’s most recent Koenig’s Eye-View from the White House, he quotes columnist Caroline Glick. She states:  “Once again, on Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry tried to extort Israeli concessions to the PLO by threatening us with a Western economic boycott.

“Kerry is obsessed with Israel’s economic success. Last May, he told us that we’re too rich to surrender our land. Now he’s saying we’ll be poor if we don’t do so.

“The anti-Semitic undertones of Kerry’s constant chatter about Jews having too much money are obvious. But beyond their inherent bigotry, Kerry’s statements serve to legitimize the radical Left’s economic war against the Jewish state.

“Administration supporters and fundraisers from Code Pink and other pressure groups, as well as the EU, understand that if they escalate their economic and political persecution of the Jewish state, their actions will be met with quiet understanding, and even support, from the Obama administration.

“This is so even if the State Department issues indignant press releases expressing fury [that] those Israeli elected officials have the chutzpah to object to Kerry’s behavior.

“Israel has been subjected to plenty of abuse from American secretaries of state. But Kerry’s incessant talk of ‘illusory’ Jewish money is unprecedented.

“Why does Kerry believe he can get away with this? The overwhelming majority of U.S. lawmakers oppose economic warfare against Israel.  The vast majority of Americans support Israel and believe that a Palestinian state will support terrorism and be hostile to Israel.”

Glick goes on to provide the troubling answers. “The answer is as infuriating as it is apparent. It is the Israeli Left, and through it, much of the American Jewish community that enables Kerry’s diplomatic aggression against the Jewish state. Operating under their cover, Kerry feels free to engage in anti-Jewish bigotry directed against Israeli society.

“He believes he is immune from allegations of ill will toward Israel even as he places the full weight of the U.S. government behind a plan that will endanger Israel, bring no peace, destabilize the Middle East, and fail to win the U.S. any friends or allies in the Islamic world.”

Some in Israel are comparing Kerry to Haman and warn that his plans amount to a war on God.

A group called Rabbis from the Committee to Save the Land and People of Israel sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry this Sunday, warning him to end his “antagonism” towards Israel. The rabbis sharply criticized Kerry for his plans to establish an Arab capital in Jerusalem for Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and to have Israel withdraw to the 1949 Armistice lines.

Recently, Kerry threatened Israel with an international boycott if peace talks fail, in addition to previous threats of a “third Intifada” last year.

The Rabbis, although not believers, still made an accurate statement. They said, “Your incessant efforts to expropriate integral parts of our Holy Land and hand them over to Abbas’s terrorist gang, amount to a declaration of war against the Creator and Ruler of the universe.”

They concluded, “If you continue on this destructive path, you will ensure your everlasting disgrace in Jewish history for bringing calamity upon the Jewish people — like Nebuchadnezzar and Titus who destroyed, respectively, the first and second great Temples and the entire Holy City of Jerusalem, and who, by Heavenly punishment, brought eventual disaster upon themselves, too.”

Though they lack the light of the Holy Spirit, they have still spoken truth. America has endured a winter like no other. In my area, the Upper Midwest, the temps this winter have beencompared to that on Mars when factoring in wind chills. Wrap your brain around minus 70 degrees. The West is experiencing a 100-year drought. Forests will soon be aflame in a dozen states.  We do not know if there is a connection but it doesn’t hurt to ask.

There are consequences to continually pounding God’s land and people; making deals with her staunch enemies such as Iran; compromising her safety day after day; favoring her barbarian Islamic neighbors with back door deals; arming her enemies.

Israeli journalist Michael Freund calls Kerry a bully in a china shop. He states his arrogance is only preceded by his ignorance. He recently made up a country: Kyrzakhstan. One of the most powerful men in Washington and the world doesn’t know there is no such nation.

As Gary Bauer writes, the Iranian leader is responding to this kind of “give peace a chance” leadership by sending warships near our coast.  And the regime’s state-run media is treating its citizens to propaganda videos featuring the bombing of Tel Aviv and sinking of an American aircraft carrier.

John Kerry is conducting delusional diplomacy. It comes from a man and an administration that is drunk with power and that thinks they are world rulers when, in fact, they are utter fools.

His answer to his critics? He and Obama have a commitment to finding peace in the Middle East. Not true. They have an agenda that promotes every radical Islamic cause in the Middle East, that marginalizes every Christian in the region, and that would bring about a swift end to Israel and her people.

For such actions, there are terrible consequences. We are forcing our best ally to negotiate with a gun to their head.

The Bible’s references to end-time “strong delusion” are appropriate here. In fact, there is no other explanation. Yes, the Antichrist will specialize in that but before that
