Kerry and Co. Don’t Understand Why Islamic Front Won’t Meet with Them


A man works hard. He builds a reputation for appeasing every enemy. He puts down roots in the State Department. He lets Iran keep its nukes, Sudan keep its genocide and Israel keep only a square mile of land around the Tel Aviv bus station.

And still… the Islamic Front refuses to meet with him. Why?

The U.S. ambassador to Damascus has said a newly formed Islamist alliance in war-torn Syria has refused to meet with American officials, in an interview aired Wednesday on Al Arabiya News Channel.

“The Islamic Front has refused to sit with us without giving any reason,” Robert Ford said, just one day after U.S. State Secretary John Kerry spoke of a “possible” meeting with Syria’s biggest opposition alliance

“We are ready to sit with them because we talk to all parties and political groups in Syria,” Ford told Al Arabiya, speaking in Arabic.

Including Al Qaeda apparently. Or maybe Ford has adopted the habit of Muslim leaders of saying one thing in Arabic and another in English.

But here’s a possible reason. The Islamic Front wants to build a Caliphate and kill everyone in their way. They have nothing to say to Hanoi John or any of the other diplomats except a demand that they stay out of their way while the last Christians are being slaughtered.

And the Islamic Front knows that Obama and Kerry and the rest of the gang will do so anyway and that Jen Psaki will nervously adjust her glasses, make a lame joke and explain that it’s the absolutely sensible thing to do.

    Everyone knows Muslims will have nothing to with people who hide their yachts to avoid paying the tax on the yachts….

    Why bother? The IF can make more military progress with their militia than from sitting across from Kerry and his Useful Idiots. They know the US is a paper tiger, well…. in reality the US, with its utter lack of leadership, is simply a paper rabbit.

      Firepower of some sort is necessary but not sufficient. Firepower without willpower is more dangerous than being a dhimmi. They can take your shat and use it on you.

      Better that you be defenseless and know you are defenseless than to have a false sense of security.

    Because in the mid east, Kerry is known by his Arabic name ‘al-Sucker’, which, roughly translated, is ‘The Sucker’. He is the kid at lunchtime, eating at the table, all alone.
