Israel: As appalling as it was to hear Secretary of State John Kerry compare the one Middle East country with Western values to the old South Africa, it should shock no one. It's obvious this administration reviles Israel.
According to the man who 43 years ago this month contemptuously discarded his military decorations onto the steps of the U.S. Capitol, an Israel that stands firm against terrorist Palestinians refusing to recognize its legitimacy will either cease "to be a Jewish state" or become "an apartheid state with second-class citizens."
John Kerry of Swift Boat infamy insisted how "imperative it is to get to the two-state solution" during what he thought were private remarks to the government officials and wonks at the Trilateral Commission. The Daily Beast's Josh Rogin crashed the affair and recorded Kerry's unguarded comments.
First off, let's be brutally honest about two states: There is little chance it will be a solution to anything. It can, in fact, be expected to fan the flames of anti-Israeli fanaticism.
But Kerry and Obama want to preside over some settlement for which they can take credit — then blame the Israelis later when it doesn't work out as advertised.
