"I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone"
You don't tug on Superman's cape, spit into the wind or question John Kerry's patriotism. Also you don't question his support for Israel.
No matter how often he calls American soldiers dog-killing, genital-shocking bloodthirsty murderers who are worse than Genghis Khan... you do not question John Kerry's patriotism.
It doesn't matter how often he met with the Viet Cong or Communist terrorists in South America. It doesn't matter how much he praised Assad.
Don't question his patriotism.
And no matter how often Kerry bashes Israel, calls it an Apartheid state, aids Code Pink's trip to support Hamas or suggests a Third Intifada is on the way... don't you dare question his support for Israel.
In response to the negative responses, Kerry has something to say to you all.
For more than thirty years in the United States Senate, I didn’t just speak words in support of Israel, I walked the walk when it came time to vote and when it came time to fight.
John Kerry fought for Israel? Was this when he was in Cambodia?
I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes...
So this is Kerry's old "Don't Question My Patriotism" speech from 2004 dusted off for Israel.
"I do not believe, nor have I ever stated, publicly or privately, that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one. Anyone who knows anything about me knows that without a shred of doubt."
Who are you going to believe... John Kerry or your filthy lying ears?
If there’s no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon, Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state,” Secretary of State John Kerry told a room of influential world leaders in a closed-door meeting Friday.
Not a shred of doubt. Not one shred.
"Second, I have been around long enough to also know the power of words to create a misimpression, even when unintentional, and if I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word."
So John Kerry did say Apartheid, but he didn't mean to say Apartheid. He just had a 'misimpression' when choosing words.
He was, you might say, against Israel being an apartheid state, before he was for it.
