U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Muslims Thursday night that the absence of peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is “a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation.”
He told a reception in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that the anger “has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity.”
This is not satire. This is real. This is actually what was declared by Kerry, former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and now the Secretary of State of the United States of America.
It would be funny if it were not true, but it certainly is sad when an intelligent person plays the role of idiot and connects dots that create a maze without an escape route by manufacturing the Arab world’s demands on Israel as the cause of all problems in the world, except for Ebola – so far.
The Muslim holiday reception was hosted by Shaarik Zafar, whom Kerry appointed last month as Special Representative to Muslim Communities. That was just after the Islamic State ISIS murderers hanged its first American victim, journalist James Foley. Kerry’s response at the installation ceremony of Zafar was, “The real face of Islam is a peaceful religion based on the dignity of all human beings.”
That is the premise for the twisted path that ends with the finger of blame for Muslim violence at the doorstep of Israel. The Obama administration is careful to not to single out Israel for the failure of talks but simply says so in a twisted way by damning every one of nearly 350,000 Jews in Jerusalem neighborhoods as “illegitimate’ and “illegal,” just like an equal number in Judea and Samaria.
Kerry began his speech by praising the “terrific $5.4 billion” raised in Cairo this week to rebuild Gaza. He did not mention that Hamas, which runs Gaza, has not agreed to disarm and has actually bragged that it is continuing to manufacture rockets to restore the stockpile lose in the recent war.
Once again, the Obama administration has ignored Israel’s insistence that there can be no peace with a terrorist organization that does not disavow its stated goal of destroying Israel.
Instead, the key is “negotiations,” a term which Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has successfully turned into “ultimatum.”
No peace in Gaza? No problem. Kerry said last night, “It is imperative that we find a way to get back to the negotiations for what everybody knows is, in the end, the only way to go forward that makes sense.”
And that is where his “Special Representative to Muslim Communities comes into play.
“We have the first faith-based office,” Kerry stated. “We have the office reaching out to the Islamic world. And when he started drafting our national strategic approach as a leader of a faith community, he began that strategy with two words: ‘religion matters.’”
Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and atheism never mattered in the State Dept’s 30-year goal of punishing Israel for having won the war against the Arab Muslim world in 1967, but all of a sudden religion matters because radical Islam is embarrassing to followers of Allah.
“What we’re really doing as we… celebrate Eid al-Adha is that we are celebrating sort of the meaning and importance of sacrifice and devotion in our lives,” said Pastor Kerry.
Sounding more like John Lennon than a man of individual faith, he cited the quest for “introspection and re-evaluation through Eid al-Adha and Yom Kippur.
Kerry painted a lovely picture of the world of “a young girl somewhere in New Delhi praying outside of a mosque, or kids or adults in Pakistan, girls singing songs and painting their hands with henna, or Shiites in the holy city of Najaf or fellow Shi’a celebrating Eid-e-Ghorban in Iran.”
Against this simplicity of universal unification, Kerry the sophomore whisked back to reality and pronounced, “It’s a very complex time… The extremism that we see, the radical exploitation of religion which is translated into violence, has no basis in any of the real religions. There’s nothing Islamic about what ISIL/Daesh stands for or is doing to people.”
Having ripped out half of the Koran that preaches the murder of Jews, Kerry’s next thread in his maze was demographics.
“When you have 65 percent of a country, as you do in many countries in the Middle East or South Central Asia or elsewhere, in north Horn of Africa, that are under the age of 35… and 50 percent under the age of 25, you are going to have a governance problem unless your governance is really addressing the demands and needs of that part of the population.”
This is the reason for the chaos in Syria, according to Kerry.
And how does he propose to stop the killing? It’s simple. Get Israel on the same track as the Palestinian Authority, of course.
“As I went around and met with people in the course of our discussions about the ISIL coalition, the truth is we – there wasn’t a leader I met with in the region who didn’t raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians, because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation that they felt – and I see a lot of heads nodding – they had to respond to. And people need to understand the connection of that. And it has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity, and Eid celebrates the opposite of all of that….
“What’s happening in Iraq is an interesting beginning of that, where Daesh has kind of drawn a line and made people stop and think, and Sunni and Shia are beginning to realize there’s a common problem out there and there is a way to try to work together.”
Kerry now can God, or perhaps Allah, for the Islamic State.
The ISIS, or ISIL as the Obama administration insist on calling it, gives Kerry another tiger’s tail to grab and continue to turn the other cheek to the incredibly complex thought that the radical Islamic theology is the root of radical Islamic violence.
