Once again, on Saturday, US 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 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 US 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.

So if the American public opposes Kerry’s obsessive aggressiveness toward Israel, who is supporting him? Who is giving him cover for his anti-Jewish smears and his irrational focus on Jewish communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines? 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 US government behind a plan that will endanger Israel, bring no peace, destabilize the Middle East and fail to win the US any friends or allies in the Islamic world.

On the face of it, it is hard to understand why leftist Israeli Jews cheer Kerry’s aggressive attacks and threats.

After all, they live here.

They know as well as the rest of the country that if Israel bows to his will and surrenders Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to the PLO the move will bring no peace.

Rather it will unleash a Palestinian terrorist assault the likes of which we haven’t seen before.

They know that the international delegitimization of Israel only expands with every Israeli concession to the PLO, and that giving up the store will bring us no respite from the Western world’s assault on our right to exist.

So what do they gain by giving cover to Kerry? Why do people like Labor MK Shelly Yacimovich applaud Kerry for placing unrelenting pressure on the government to take steps that the majority of Israelis oppose and urge him to keep it up? Ron Pundak, one of the original architects of Israel’s embrace of the PLO and the so-called two-state solution at Oslo in 1993 supplied the answer in a recently published paper.

Last November the George Soros-supported International Crisis Group published a paper by Pundak entitled “Leap of Faith: Israel’s National Religious and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.”

The purpose of his paper was to provide strategies for contending with the religious Zionist opposition to the two-state model. According to Pundak, non-secular Israelis oppose the two-state policy because it “is seen as… aimed at de-Zionizing the state.”

Rather than develop talking points to convince Israeli Zionists that they are wrong to view the two-state model as an anti-Zionist project, Pundak admitted they are right. Indeed, destroying the Zionist underpinning of the Jewish state is not a byproduct of the two-state model. It is the purpose of the two-state model.

In Pundak’s words, “Peace is not an objective by itself. It is a way to transition Israel from one era to another: to an era of what I consider is a normal state. Israelisation of society rather than its judaisation…”

Pundak’s explanation is not new. Before the Sharon government surrendered Gaza to Palestinian terrorists and forcibly expelled its 8,000 Jewish residents from their homes,Haaretz published an unsigned editorial along the same lines.

“The disengagement of Israeli policy from its religious fuel is the real disengagement currently on the agenda. On the day after the disengagement, religious Zionism’s status will be different.”

The editorial concluded that all the talk about enhanced security or peace was pure nonsense. The purpose of destroying the communities in Gaza was to destroy the political and social power of religious Zionism in Israel.

“The real question is not how many mortar shells will fall, or who will guard the Philadelphi route [between Gaza and Egypt], or whether the Palestinians will dance on the roofs of [the destroyed communities]. The real question is who sets the national agenda.”

Other leftist commentators and policy makers including Doron Rosenblum, Avirama Golan, Avrum Burg, Efraim Sneh, Dan Margalit and Ami Ayalon made similar arguments.

For Pundak and his colleagues in the post-Zionist camp, Kerry is a key ally. And to the extent Kerry weakens the government and its supporters, he is a strategic asset.

True, Kerry’s “framework” will bring no peace. But if what Pundak and his camp were after was peace, they wouldn’t have embraced the PLO to begin with. They would have cultivated pro-Israel Arabs who would lead their people into Israeli society.

That is, they would have done precisely what center- right governing coalitions – that included religious Zionists – sought to achieve, with significant success, in the decade and a half that preceded the phony peace-process.

Israel is a democracy. And it is perfectly legitimate for Pundak and his colleagues to try to advance their policy goal of replacing Zionism with a de-Judaized state or anything else they wish.

What is illegitimate is the means they have employed to advance their goal.

In a democracy, the strategic goals and policies of the government are supposed to be based on the will of the public as expressed at the ballot box. In Israel, there is a political party that shares the goals of the post-Zionist camp. It is called Meretz and it receives between two and five seats in the Knesset every election.

Pundak and his colleagues know that they cannot convince the majority of Israelis to abandon Zionism in favor of their anti-Jewish vision of the future. So rather than tell us the truth about what they are doing, they engage in subversion and subterfuge. They call themselves “the peace camp,” and use outside pressure and coercion to bend an unwilling public to their will.

For them, Kerry is best when he’s worst for their country.

And Kerry knows this. And so he piles on the threats, and the anti-Semitism, and with their support, he knows he can get away with it.

    What sense does it make to pose as the “peace camp” when the Palestinians have never made peace their ultimate objective, and in fact won’t be satisfied with anything less than the elimination of Israel, and all of the Jews who live there? Do these idiots on the Left think that the Muslims will accept them and treat them well for their betrayal of Israel? The Left is delusional to the point of insanity.

    • WW4

      “Left,” because the current occupant is a Democrat? It’s a good question, but it’s a question that can just have easily been posed 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 35 years ago. It’s been American policy for over a generation, now.

      • truebearing

        I was referring to the Israeli Left, but the American Left is just as deranged.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          Left in politics is synonymous with deranged and delusional. The few legitimate movements are the rare exceptions, although even they are often delusional but just happen to be correct under those circumstances.

          • truebearing

            I think being delusional is actually a requirement for being a true leftist. Look at the list of lies you have to swallow, not to mention somehow ignore the history of the entire 20th Century, in order to buy in to “the revolution.” It is a revolt from existential reality and sanity.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            In theory it’s possible on occasion to align your politics with an issue championed on the left without being delusional. It’s just such a rare thing…

          • truebearing

            Perhaps, like two tangents, traveling at the speed of light and intersecting for an infinitisemal period of time, only to continue on in infinite separation. ;)

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “Left,” because the current occupant is a Democrat?”

        “Left” because it’s based on delusion of magic economics and the idea that national sovereigns cause war rather than secure peace. As a rule. Even in the West.

        “It’s a good question, but it’s a question that can just have easily been posed 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 35 years ago. It’s been American policy for over a generation, now.”

        Yes it was posed then I’m sure we can easily document that fact. It’s even more obvious today than it was before. That’s what’s changed.

  • Silver Gonzales

    There is no more insane/demented/twisted and self loathing human than the Jewish/Israeli left. The duplicit Israeli left spends a 1/3 of their time bashing the only forces between them and the Muslims: The Israeli army and the American Christian. If a policy is bad for Israel, they will be the first to support it. Before the Arab Muslims!! There is a parade of them on AlJaz and RT. The Dems know this. They use them to their advantage like greyhounds. They are useful idiots who will ape whatever they say and always come back for more. They will not allow facts to get in the way. These idiots hope and have faith that Muslims will treat them with respect and courtesy with the best of intentions. I know because several of these idiots are in my family.

    Republicans are better but by a few centimeters. I wish the US drop Israel like an old shoe. Israel unleashed and making deals and selling advanced weaponry with China, Russia and India. Russia will one day have to drop the Arabs. They must know that they are no good and will amount to nothing.

  • Bamaguje

    Let me get this straight, Israel’s secular left is willing to cut off it’s nose to spite its face… i.e. Risk destruction of the Jewish nation at the hand of antisemitic Jihadists in the inordinate ambition of leftists to get at religious Zionists.

    Kerry’s inordinate obsession with Israel’s economic prosperity is just petty jealousy, since his inept boss – Obama – can’t get it right in America.

    • Myrtle Linder

      You forget this party is working for the Palestinians not for Israel’s good.It is all about the Palestinians. It is so obvious. Israel just takes whatever comes along, in this land that GOD gave Israel to be theirs forever. The Palestinians are forever wanting more, it is not possible to please them, no matter what or how much they acquire, they want more..

      Genesis 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, unto them thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, Euphrates

      Leviticus 25;23 The land shall not be sold forever; for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

      Jeremiah 25:5 They said, Turn you again now everyone from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers forever and ever.

      Isaiah 60:21 Thy people also shall be all righteous; they shall inherit the land forever.The branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that alI may be glorified.

      GOD’S people must stand strong and fight against evil.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      “Let me get this straight – Israel’s secular left is willing to cut off it’s nose to spite its face..”

      That’s common around the world. They don’t know their cutting in to their own face until it’s far too late.

    • Thomas L. Stafford

      Yes, the rabid liberal Jew is just that self destructive. We saw it in Germany prior to WWII and in the “Russian Revolution”. You know when the Bolsheviks took over from a citizen congress after Tsar Nicholas abdicated.

  • Daniel Rubio

    The problem is not John Kerry. After all Kerry is only doing what’s in his job description, as has been the case with almost every Secretary of State in the last few decades. Has the State Dept. ever been impartial towards Israel? Or has anybody already forgotten Henry Kissinger, or James Baker or George Schultz or Condoleezza Rice (all of them under Republican presidents, by the way)? Plus Kerry is serving a proto-muslim president whose hatred for Israel and Jews can go un-noticed only to those that wish not to see it.

    The problem is with the Israeli authorities, who still give Kerry more weight than what he actually deserves. Kerry should be wined, dined, promenaded and swiftly bid farewell, on and over to his next stop in his grand world tour, with a pat on his shoulder, a big smile and an empty briefcase. The press shouldn’t even talk about him and he should be as relevant to the Israeli public as the current price of mangos in Borneo.

    Whining and complaining about his latest poisoned chalice offering is like complaining about humidity in the tropical rainforest. It just comes with the territory. Does anyone thing that he gets even a pinch of publicity in the arab camp? Other than Abbas and Ereckat and a few other slimy such characters, Kerry is just another American name to vilify among the muslims. They don’t even know who he is, what he wants or where he stands. They don’t care if he is against them or for them. In short, the guy is transparent, non-existent to them. While Israelis loose sleep and quarrel over his statements, muslims don’t give a damn. And that’s exactly the kind of response he should be getting, starting from Netanyahu and all the way down to the dumbest Haaretz reporter (excuse the oxymoron).

    • wildjew

      Unfortunately Prime Minister Netanyahu bowed to Obama’s central demand that he recognize the Bush road map (2 states for 2 peoples) at his University of Bar IIan speech, June 2009. That speech recognizing that a demilitarized Palestinian state would be acceptable to Israel invited American pressure which came full force after Obama was re-elected, November 2012. I would like to see Israel wean herself off American aid and dependency. This prime minister believes the United States is a great friend. The U.S. does what she believes is in her interests. American leaders, both Republican and Democratic leaders, believe a Palestinian state in Israel’s heartland is an American interest. Mitt Romney fought conservative Christian delegates to our national platform writing committee for the Palestinian cause in Tampa, August 2012. Americans believe it is imperative for Israel to surrender land to her dedicated enemies. I don’t see Americans advocating surrendering even an inch of land in North America to natives from whom it was expropriated. Lakota Sioux cannot get anywhere in their effort to re-acquire the Black Hills (South Dakota, Wyoming) from the United States government.

  • Lanna

    A Huge majority of Americans support Israel. They see through this administrations attempts to push Israel out of its land, and give the advantage to Hamas and other Islamic groups who also want Israel destroyed. This makes the Obama administration very unpopular!

          People don’t necessarily align themselves with their genetic type. Why you’d expect this to be a natural occurrence, I guess we’ll have to wonder.

      Not all of America is interested in assisting Islamic colonialism.

      • The Facts

        It’s pretty rich to accuse the Palestinians of colonizing Israel. Those things, though, are a matter of opinion to people whose interests are vested in the Middle East. As for the people who have to endure their propagandists, though, the American thing to do is to let their young college people have their fun squandering their student group fees to haggle it out. It is intrinsically repellent to grant one faction more speaking rights than the other. Off campus, it should be just as true. Ms. Glick’s identity politics should be viewed with the same relative chuckle as the views Reza Aslan, or CodePink or the Nation of Islam. Instead, Ms. Glick is going for the tribal thing and to get John Kerry shunned. It is quite quaint, except for the part where it is as backward as requiring women to wear headscarves and making men have to apologize to women for being male. It’s so much neater to see her in a Thomas Nast scale, balancing evenly with a guy trying to enforce a Sharia Zone sign.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          “It’s pretty rich to accuse the Palestinians of colonizing Israel.”

          Oh it’s rich, is it? It’s factual too.

          “It is intrinsically repellent to grant one faction more speaking rights than the other.”

          Of course. All people are equal, even after they lose out after decades of belligerence. We can’t ever diminish their rights against a non-Muslim sovereign. Every jihadi knows that! In fact as Muslims they are obligated to attack the non-Muslim sovereign, and this only fortifies their rights under sharia.

          “Ms. Glick’s identity politics should be viewed with the same relative chuckle as the views Reza Aslan, or CodePink or the Nation of Islam.”

          She’s worse: She’s a nationalist.

          “Instead, Ms. Glick is going for the tribal thing and to get John Kerry shunned.”

          Sure. If you say so.

          Here is a fact, since you appear to be fresh out: there is no such thing as a native Palestinian. They are all transplants from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and assorted other Arab nations.

          You babble about Palestinians, as if they are an actual Arab tribe, then attack Ms. Glick for “going tribal” because she is exposing Kerry’s malicious duplicity and the betrayal of Israel by idiotic Israeli leftists. You are “going tribal” because the Left is being outed for the abject morons they truly are. Thank you for abundantly proving it with your comments.

          • The Facts

            Anti-Israel is not the same meaning as antisemitic. Antisemitic means genocidally racist against Jews and wanting to extirpate them from the earth or at least banish them to some remote region. The word is largely semantically hoarded by Jewish nationalists. You did not demonstrate that there are antisemitic Jews. At best all that you could possibly demonstrate is that there are people who are Jewish who are repulsed by the identity politics of that group, for example a man like Gilad Atzmon.

      An idiotic comment on every level. As leftists, Kerry and his wife are capable of pathological levels of denial. There are plenty of Jews who are hostile to Judaism and Israel.

      You know full well that your ridiculous claim that the criticism of Kerry is “identity politics” is a lie. Or you don’t know the definition of the term, which I doubt, since its use is a genetic propensity for all leftists. Your false outrage was almost convincing.

      Your last convoluted sentence falls apart upon reading it. The “nationalists” you cite are citizens of Israel, a nation restored so that Jews could live in their original homeland, free of persecution from genocidal cults like Nazism, or Nazified Islam. The diaspora you refer to are Americans, loyal to American interests, but meddling in Israeli interests, and who have no right to infringe on Israeli sovereignty. It appears the “hustle” is by people like Kerry, who are hostile to Israel and don’t respect their right to self-determination, or survival.

  • dartson

    Leftists in Israel still struggle to deal with the fact that, despite controlling all the MSM, they lost the battle for the hearts and minds of the Israeli public. Their hatred of the right wing (and Netanyahu in particular) is so intense that they welcome an outside pressure on the democratically elected government, gloat about future economic/academic boycotts of Israel and pray that Obama/Kerry/EU will “save Israel from herself”. Another recent tactic of the Israeli left is to organize campaigns for providing an Israeli citizenship to tens of thousands of illegal workers (mostly Muslims) from Sudan and Eritrea, hoping to get their votes in the future. On the bright side, most Israeli Jews do not buy into this tactic, despite the vast amounts of money that the EU pumps into various left wing NGOs.

  • Horace Yo

    The US State Department keeps Kerry on the road because when he’s home in the office he keeps the other employees awake with his snoring. Aside from that when he is awake he has always been a subversive destructive wrong person. The Soviet Union has lost it’s leadership position but communism is alive and well in the warped minds of the leftist traitors. They will destroy any free government they think they can, so as to replace it with some hellish totalitarian utopia -such as an Islamic Sharia caliphate or a communist dictatorship. They run the Universities and the Party Line Media.

    Silver G – There is no more insane/demented/twisted and self loathing human than anyone on the Left. Period.
    Because anyone on the Left, wherever they may be, hates and fears freedom and individual rights wherever they are found, including Israel.
    Anyone on the Left is a dedicated blood brother/sister to everyone who espouses some form of slavery, including the Palestinians and followers of Islam.
    We have elected a dedicated socialist/nihilist to the American Presidency twice and he is doing everything possible to wreck our country, particularly our military, and turn America into a third world police state a la Castro’s Cuba or Chavez’s Venezuela. I don’t think he will be able to do it.
    In the mean time, his soul mate Kerry will do everything possible to help to destroy Israel.
    Hurrah for Carolyn Glick and everyone who opposes what they are doing.

    What I find so puzzling is why the Israeli left or Kerry’s American Jewish supporters can’t even see the “peace movement” for what it really is- a piece movement-dismantle Israel piece-by-piece, until nothing remains. 2,000 years it took to found a Jewish homeland, and now many Israelis want to even abandon the whole notion of Israel as a Jewish state and replace it with a “normal one”-one completely devoid of its spiritual roots, as so many Western nations have?

    If Kerry and the Israeli left succeed, they will have done what Israel’s Muslim neighbors have been unable to-destroy that nation from the face of the Earth.

    The LORD said, “they will cry,Peace, Peace!, where there is no peace”. Looks like that’s where we are now.

    We get distracted with details and negotiations. The true aim of the Jewish left, the Arabs and Obama/Kerry is their eternal struggle to eradicate Judaism itself. Their way to eradicate Judaism is to eradicate Jews and Jewish sovereignty. When Stalin wanted to stamp out Judaism in Russia the Jewish left volunteered to help this mass killer. These self destructive Jews also tried to get rid of Moses even back then. The Jewish majority still fails to understand that the Jewish left are dangerous enemies and must be expelled where they can be prevented from doing harm. Unfortunately most Jews are too soft while the left wages brutal war with total dedication and fanaticism. That means a fringe leftist minority can still do immense harm to Israel.

    Makes perfect sense Caroline. Lord knows we have our Leftist tools here, Obummer, chief among them. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    Most Americans DO support Israel but were duped into putting Zero and his crew into the White House twice! And make no mistake, Kerry, aka Lurch, has no authority to act on his own. The head of the State Department essentially carries out the will of the president so this is ultimately coming from Hussein Obama. We are counting down the days until his Islamo-pandering administration is over.

    Great article Caroline.
    Don’t forget, Ron Pundak was the biggest appeaser of Arafat after the terror war Arafat started in 2000.
    If people forget Pundak back in the early 2000′s was blaming Israel completely for this terrorist Arafat ordering terrorist atrocities against Israeli civilians.
    I emailed Pundak about 5 years ago when he was with the Peres Center.
    I emailed him like i was a peace now person and Pundak got back to me.
    Then i emailed Pundak a 2nd time and told him, did you know
    On the same day in 1993 on which Yasser Arafat signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn, he spoke the following words on Jordan TV:
    “Since we cannot defeat Israel in war we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish a sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.”

    Mr Pundak didn’t get back to that email.

    Pundak also wants to give away Half of Jerusalem and the Jewish Golan.

    I emailed him a 3rd time and told him, the Golan is Israeli as much as Tel Aviv or all of Jerusalem.

    If LEFT-WING RADICALS would stop trying to give away Israeli territory to terrorists. East Jerusalema nd the Golan are the ancestral inheritance of Jews the world over. Subversive cells of LEFT-WING RADICALS have no right to give away our inherited homeland. Appeasing Hitler did not work before WW II. Appeasing modern-day enemies of the Jewish people will work no better. They will only turn the West Bank and East Jerusalem into terrorist bases from which to attack Israel, just as they did with Gaza.

    Imagine if this fool Pundak gave Assad the Jewish Golan.
    Assad would probably fire chemical weapons at Israel and Pundak would be now an apologist for Assad, like Pundak was an apologist for Arafat.

    When Netanyahu was elected in 2009 and appointed as Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

    http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_context=2&x_outlet=37&x_article=1977
    Ron Pundak, a historian who runs the Peres Center for Peace, sees the current atmosphere of Israeli politics as the ugliest in the nation’s history. “It’s totally abnormal,” he says. “From my point of view, this is reminiscent of the dark ages of different places in the world in the 1930s. Maybe not Germany, but Italy, maybe Argentina later. I fear we are reaching a slippery slope, if we are not already there.”

    My comments.

    This is the same Pundak who was appeasing and defending Arafat’s atrocities against Israeli civilians in the early 2000′s.

    Pundak seems not to want to talk about the Palestinians racist hate media against Jews, which Palmediawatch has documented for years.

    The Palestinians are a hateful people with lives ruled by prejudice, terrorism and murdering innocent Israeli civilians.

    When you have these same wicked Palestinian leaders telling their people that Jews are the sons of Pigs and Apes.
    When you have Palestinian Mufti’s teaching in Mosques that the highest goal for a Muslim is to kill the Jews and you wonder why 84% of the Palestinians supported the Mercaz Harav yeshiva massacre in 08 in Jerusalem.

    The Pals never contribute nothing to society, other than whining that Israel doesn’t want to live under Sharia law.

    Israel should be commended for its extreme restraint. Which other country would tolerate blood thirsty terrorists within and next door who want to annihilate their country.

    The racists are Palestinians who praise Buses being blown up with old Israeli people on board. Pizza restaurant and Disco’s where Israeli teenagers hung out, blown up.
    Crude racism was an old man in a wheel chair is pushed off a ship alive, because he was a Jew.
    Does the name Leon Klinghoffer ring a bell Pundak?

    I should also point out about Ron Pundak.

    After UN envoy Terje Larson’s made his blood libel against Israel saying that that what Israel did in Jenin in 2002 was horrifying and shocking’

    Terje Larson’s also made up deliberate lies that he saw piles of “rotting Palestinian flesh in Jenin.

    All this turned out to be lies in the Jenin massacre Hoax.
    Yet who defended Terje Larson’s in his Jenin lies?
    Yes, Mr Ron appeaser Pundak.

    Here’s what Pundak said.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/23/world/mideast-turmoil-the-envoy-from-oslo-talks-to-jenin-un-aide-comes-under-fire.html

    Ron Pundak, an academic who was involved in the secret meetings in Oslo and who is now director of the Peres Center for Peace, described the attacks on Mr. Roed-Larsen as ”outrageous.”

    ”Knowing him for almost a decade, I can say he’s definitely not anti-Israeli,” Mr. Pundak said. ”I consider him as a very, very honest broker.

    The Left betrays and sells out. The did it during the Cold War. Many college professors I knew during the 80s would declare with a straight face the moral and material equivalence of the USA and the USSR. When Soviet dissidents started to show up on US campuses telling them they were wrong, the professors smeared and insulted them.

    The “Peace” and “Disarmament” activists from that time and now work to deter and disarm American military power while empowering totalitarian military power.
    The 93 rd Congress betrayed and sold out the South Vietnamese, the Cambodian people and the Laotian people after military victory had been achieved. John Kerry betrayed his fellow soldiers as well as the South Vietnamese
    The Left betrays and sells out.
    John Kerry, the American Left and the Israeli Left are sell outs and traitors.
    After 9/11 the US Government has sold out the American people and the free world by denying and dissimulating the nature and identity of the enemy waging war on us. The Left wing media sell outs the American people each and time we suffer a terrorists attack on US soil by pretending they have no idea what motivated the perp and even praying and hoping the perp is a non-jihadi. They will smear anyone who suggests they deny the nature and identity of jihadi enemies. They raise the bar for military and counter intelligence assets and lower the bar for jihadis.
    The Obama Admin has forbidden agents from using the language they need to identify the jihadi enemy.
    The Boston Marathon bombers were identified by the Soviets and Saudis and informed the US but the FBI were forbidden by Obama Inc to use the language necessary to identify them.
    Today John Kerry along with the traitors and sell outs at the US State Dept and in the US media work together to sell out Israel as well as the US.
    The word s “traitor” and “treason” like the words “Islamic Jihad” and”jihadi” have been banned by the national press and officialdom.
    Treason runs through their veins.

    The Left, everywhere, will do anything for power. In self governing systems, they are the definition of evil. Unrecognized evil. Once they infiltrate the schools they create their own voters. The arbitrary is their foundation. Whether it’s climate science, or religion or politics, they begin with the unchallenged arbitrary statement and proceed in all directions. Reason and total destruction are the only things that can stop them. And reason only slows them down.
