The only time that Kerry can help Israel is when he's trying to hurt it
Apparently about the only time that Kerry can help Israel is when he's angling to hurt it by helping the left.
US Secretary of State John Kerry has been adamant to EU officials not to push the Palestinian Authority (PA)'s anti-Israel resolution through the UN until after the March 2015 elections, a European diplomat told Foreign Policy Friday.
"Kerry has been very, very clear that for the United States it was not an option to discuss whatever text before the end of the Israeli election," the diplomat stated.
Kerry said that the warning stems from a meeting he had with former President Shimon Peres and Hatnua Chairman Tzipi Livni, who appealed to him out of concerns that the anti-Israel resolution - if passed before elections - would influence the vote toward Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud party and Economics Chairman's Jewish Home party.
Those are conservative parties and Kerry had been told by two lefties that a UN resolution would backfire by helping the right. Kerry, as he has shown lately, is not against the resolution. He is against Netanyahu.
MK Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) wrote on Facebook that the move amounted to "Leftist subversion."
"They asked to postpone an ambush on Israel not because it is not good for the country, but because it is not good for the Left in the elections," Shaked fired. "This is unprecedented."
Sadly it isn't. The left has shown that it would rather destroy Israel than lose control of it. The "Two State Solution" was their original plan for doing it. The "One State Solution" is their Samson option for destroying Israel rather than democratically cede it to the Jews.
