Kerry on ‘hot mike’, blasts Israel and thinks he can change the world

If we thought Obama and his narcissistic behavior was over the top, we now have Kerry emulating his master. Anyone who caught the interview on Fox with this smug, arrogant man can only wonder who does he think he is? He apparently thinks he can snap his fingers, get on a plane and the world gets down on bended knee to another “great one.” Israel must really be feeling secure these days.

State Department ‘No evidence Hamas plays any roll in Palestinian Government’

But then again, the State Department doesn’t know anything about China’s Hypersonic Missile Test either. Good news, no one home for the 3:00 am phone call. Apparently not for any phone call. As Hamas blasts away at Israel.

Hey Jan, here is a heads up:

Via Guardian: Palestinian unity government of Fatah and Hamas sworn in

….The new government will reunite Gaza and the West Bank under a single political authority for the first time since 2007, when Hamas – which won Palestinian legislative elections in 2006 – asserted control over the Gaza Strip, forcing out Fatah….

Psaki must’ve missed this article.

How else to explain this exchange, from yesterday?

Via Free Beacon: State Dept: ‘No Evidence That Hamas Plays Any Role’ in Palestinian Government

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki claimed again Tuesday that “no evidence” existed that the terrorist organization Hamas “plays any role” in the Palestinian government.

A reporter asked Psaki if President Mahmoud Abbas bore any blame for the current fighting between Israel and Hamas, saying, “at one point, yes, it was a conflict between just the U.S. and Hamas, and Abbas had no real kind of skin in the game, because it was between the two parties even though it was affecting the Palestinian people directly. But now, he’s part of a unity government and has some influence with Hamas now, wouldn’t you say?”

” Well, we have no evidence that Hamas plays any role in the interim technocratic government, and as far as we know, there have also been no steps taken for the implementation of the reconciliation,” Psaki said…

How else to explain this exchange, from yesterday?

 

Bonus time. Just to get the old laugh-o-meter rolling. Note the laughter from the journalist. From Deputy Spokesperson, Marie Harf who knows nothing about nothing:

Marie Harf on China’s Hypersonic Missile Test

Marie- here is a head’s up as well.

China has successfully tested its first hypersonic missile delivery vehicle capable of penetrating US missile defense system and delivering nuclear warheads with record breaking speeds, Pentagon officials have confirmed.

The new hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV), dubbed the WU-14 was allegedly spotted flying at record-breaking speeds during a flight test over China on January 9, an anonymous Pentagon official told the Washington Free Beacon.

The new weapon delivery system is reportedly designed to be launched as the final stage of China’s intercontinental ballistic missile, which would approach its target at a velocity of up to 10 times the speed of sound. Hypersonic speed range lies between Mach 5 and Mach 10, or 3,840 to 7,680 miles per hour.

The Chinese are “actively seeking global military power to challenge the United States, and it is not yet in any mood to talk, or engage in arms control, about it,” Fisher said.

In May, the Pentagon’s assessment of Chinese capabilities suggested that China built the world’s largest shockwave hypersonic wind tunnel capable of generating test flying conditions of up to Mach 9 speeds.

Two Chinese technical papers from December 2012 and April 2013 revealed that the country is developing precision guidance systems designed to be directed via satellite. The second Chinese paper concluded that hypersonic weapons pose “a new aerospace threat.”

Are Kerry and Obama doing to Israel what was done to Egypt and Libya?

Rocket attacks on Tel Aviv screams the headline on Drudge.

Little coverage is being given to the Israel Palestinian conflict, with Jerusalem itself under attack. Has Obama/Kerry given the green light to Palestine for these attacks? At the least fueling the flames as they did in Egypt and Libya? I think so. I am including  just a couple of links to what Obama’s henchmen are doing. But first, let me remind my readers, that we have Iranian born Valerie Jarrett who still has friends over there, and more importantly Kerry’s wife’s family is living in Iran. In fact, he had no business even being considered for Secretary of State. Let me first give this reminder:

Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?/  November 27, 2013 — bunkerville

But what if the regime simply decides to round-up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

His daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

Kerry has repeatedly appeared with groups such as the American Iranian Council (AIC), and has taken money from Iranian-Americans for his political campaigns.

Now back to Kerry’s latest rant against Israel

TEL AVIV – Secretary of State John Kerry’s rhetoric may have signaled to the Palestinian leadership that in the absence of negotiations with Israel, it is legitimate to launch a violent uprising, or intifada, against the Jewish state.

He continued: “I believe that if we do not resolve the issues between Palestinians and Israelis; if we do not find a way to find peace, there will be an increasing isolation of Israel. There will be an increasing campaign of delegitimization of Israel that’s taking place on an international basis.

Such apparent acceptance gives an air of legitimacy to a violent Palestinian campaign. It’s as if Kerry is gesturing to the Palestinians that they can use terror and riot tactics after the collapse of negotiations.

Top Obama official blasts Israel for dehumanizing Palestinians by denying the,sovereignty with military control

In an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to make the compromises needed to reach a permanent peace agreement.

Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said.During the same speech he heaped praise on Mahmoud Abbas as being “committed to non-violence and co-existence and cooperation with Israel” while hammering Netanyahu for not caving in to unreasonable demands made by the Palestinians.

Times of Israel

While it may not have been his intention, Kerry’s statements seem to accept as a fait accompli that the Palestinian alternative to negotiations is the resumption of violence as a policy. His comments were not followed by any qualifier. He gave no indication that the Palestinian leadership would pay a political price for following the path of so-called resistance.

Such apparent acceptance gives an air of legitimacy to a violent Palestinian campaign. It’s as if Kerry is gesturing to the Palestinians that they can use terror and riot tactics after the collapse of negotiations.

Obama’s scam brother Malik Obama joins Hamas

Just in case anyone is still wondering we get this news. This is the fellow who is running a scam foundation and got special treatment by the IRS. Recall as well,  Obama signed Executive Order, gags press coverage of Yemen. Now we know why.

Stories at the conclusion of this update:

While Obama prepared for this sixth State of the Union Address his brother Malik hanging with Hamas terrorists. He was even pictured in a scarf reading “There is no Israel.”
Shoebat Foundation reported:

While in Sanaa, Yemen in 2010, President Barack Obama’s brother Malik Obama was at an event billed as the Orphans Development Fund (ODF) Conference. It’s quite the ironic title considering a group photo Malik is in that he has posted to his website. In the photo, he can be seen wearing a Hamas scarf (keffiyeh) that bears a well-known Palestinian slogan – ‘Jerusalem is ours – WE ARE COMING!’ It also includes a map of Palestine that says, ‘From the River to the Sea!’ In other words, Malik is saying, THERE IS NO ISRAEL.

Malik Obama who is runing a scam foundation:

President Obama’s half-brother, who runs a foundation that collects funds in the United States, was able to get approval of atax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service in an unheard-of time period of only a month, records reveal.

Barack Obama’s half-brother Abongo Malik Obama, also known as “Roy” Obama, appears to have received the sudden IRSapproval to operate as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization in only 30 days. The result was made retroactive for three years.

The Barack H. Obama Foundation, which runs out of a commercial mail drop in Arlington, Va., has solicited tax-deductible contributions on the Internet since 2008.

The Foundation’s guiding principle:

The common denominator in all that the Foundation undertakes is the inherent belief that no man can truly enjoy the riches he has reaped if his neighbor suffers.

But it first submitted an application for its tax exemption in May and was granted the status in June, according to records.

The New York Post also reported that the foundation was not registered in Virginia  at the time the article was written in May, despite a Virginia legal requirement that an organization register before soliciting donations in that state.

“Since one of the Obama Foundation’s founders and directors, Mr. Alton R. Baysden, stated publicly in May 2011 that the foundation had not even applied for tax-exempt status, it is inconceivable that the IRS can now claim that the status was granted in June 2011, retroactive to 2008,” Ken Boehm, the head of the National Legal and Policy Center, told WND.

But this should hit the news because of the E.O. of Obama
Obama signed Executive Order, gags press coverage of Yemen
Now, An Executive order seeks to punish U.S. citizens even for “indirectly” obstructing dictatorial rule in Yemen

Salon:

There seems to be little question that the Obama administration is devoted to imposing dictatorial order on Yemen through the use of force and liberty abridgment. As Scahill previously reported, Obama has played a direct personal role in the ongoing imprisonment of a Yemeni journalist who committed the crime of documenting thelarge number of civilian deaths from a U.S. cluster bomb attack on his country as well as exposing the joint lies of the Yemeni and U.S. Government. The latest U.S. drone strike in Yemen yesterday, even according to Yemeni officials, killed more civilians than alleged “militants.” The bombing campaign in Yemen now increasingly resemblesthe one conducted in Pakistan, though Yemen saw more drone strikes this month than any previous month in Pakistan.

Our imperial president decreed another executive order that should be making headlines, but of course, merely moves forward his agenda of limiting free speech. In a wonderfully written piece by Salon, the tale is told as to the objective of Obama’s edict. It is well worth the full read, and gives the past Supreme Court decision that gives him the boldness to do this.

Banned Muslim Cleric’s Deputy Visits White House

The Obama administration is planning talks with the Taliban in Qatar.  The Obama administration meets with a Muslim cleric Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah from a group that has been banned from the U.S. Yet none of this even makes the news. It makes little sense. But then again recall Kerry may hire Hamas supporter diplomat for advisory post? This fellow Malloy? Perhaps it does make sense to those who chose to read the writing on the wall.

Malley has a controversial anti-Israel history that includes chastising the Jewish state while negotiating with Hamas. He also has defended Hezbollah, as well as other violent and illiberal Middle East factions

Malley’s most prominent misstep came in 2008 when he was fired from his post as an adviser to then-Sen. Obama after he entered into direct negotiations with Hamas.

The Obama Administration held talks with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, in the White House. The Investigative Project reported:

Radical Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi is considered so radical that the United States bans him from entering the country.

Qaradawi, considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, has called for the killing of Jews and Americans.

That history makes the June 13 White House meeting with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah all the more inexplicable. Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group founded by and headed by Qaradawi. The IUMS has a long history of supporting Hamas –a top Hamas leader is an IUMS member – and of calling for Israel’s destruction.

Bin Bayyah’s website claims that he met June 13 with senior Obama administration officials at the White House.

Nonetheless, it was the Obama administration which sought the meeting with Bin Bayyah, his website’s account said.

“We asked for this meeting to learn from you and we need to be looking for new mechanisms to communicate with you and the Association of Muslim Scholars (another name used for the IUMS),” Gayle Smith, senior director of the National Security Council, reportedly said. HINT: She was previously a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, George Soros funded organization.

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah posted this photo of his June 13 White House meeting.

Kerry may hire Hamas supporter diplomat for advisory post

This fellow Malley should work out well with Kerry. It is not the anti-Israel position that should catch our attention, but rather, he is another terrorist loving Middle East faction supporter. Hezbollah and Hamas are swell folks. But then again, the mystery man Kerry has connections that we should not forget. Recall Kerry reveals his Iranian family ties?

Kerry exposes Iranian family tie — and subjects family to blackmail

In a greeting to the Iranian people (do check out the greeting-unbelievable) on the occasion of the traditional New Year (Nowruz) holiday last week, Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

Kerry has repeatedly appeared with groups such as the American Iranian Council (AIC), and has taken money from Iranian-Americans for his political campaigns, including at least one illegal donation from an Iranian woman who did not have a green card.

Among Sen. John Kerry’s top fund-raisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

So he didn’t need to have an Iranian-American family member to believe that the United States should forge direct relations with the Islamic Republic or ease U.S. pressure on the regime.

Let us not forget Iranian born Valerie Jarrett – the real center of Obama’s inner circle  who still has friends in Iran.

Now back to this fellow Robert Malley:

An anti-Israel diplomat who was kicked off the 2008 Obama campaign after he was caught negotiating with the terror group Hamas is under consideration for a State Department advisory post, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Robert Malley, a longtime government insider who worked for former President Bill Clinton and advised then-Sen. Barack Obama, is said to be on Kerry’s shortlist for deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, according to reports and sources. He currently serves as the Middle East director of the International Crisis Group (ICG).

Malley has a controversial anti-Israel history that includes chastising the Jewish state while negotiating with Hamas. He also has defended Hezbollah, as well as other violent and illiberal Middle East factions.

A State Department spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

Malley’s most prominent misstep came in 2008 when he was fired from his post as an adviser to then-Sen. Obama after he entered into direct negotiations with Hamas.

Christianity ‘close to extinction’ in places: An Islamic Victory?

Christianity faces being wiped out of the “biblical heartlands” in the Middle East because of mounting persecution of worshippers, according to a new report.

As we wind down this year and the season of holiday cheer comes to and end, it is easy to pass by one of the biggest stories that was under reported. That being the attack on Christianity throughout much of the world. Let us keep our brothers and sisters in our prayers. Here we go:

The study warns that Christians suffer greater hostility across the world than any other religious group.

And it claims politicians have been “blind” to the extent of violence faced by Christians in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The most common threat to Christians abroad is militant Islam, it says, claiming that oppression in Muslim countries is often ignored because of a fear that criticism will be seen as “racism”.

The report, entitled Christianophobia, highlights a fear among oppressive regimes that Christianity is a “Western creed” which can be used to undermine them.

The “lion’s share” of persecution faced by Christians arises in countries where Islam is the dominant faith, the report says, quoting estimates that between a half and two-thirds of Christians in the Middle East have left the region or been killed in the past century.

“There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its biblical heartlands,” it claims.

The report shows that “Muslim-majority” states make up 12 of the 20 countries judged to be “unfree” on the grounds of religious tolerance by Freedom House, the human rights think tank.

It catalogues hundreds of attacks on Christians by religious fanatics over recent years, focusing on seven countries: Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria, India, Burma and China.

State hostility towards Christianity is particularly rife in China, where more Christians are imprisoned than in any other country in the world, according to the report.

Reporter slams State Dept on silence over Israel

A “Spirited exchange between an Associated Press reporter and spokesperson Victoria Nuland marked the U.S. State Department’s daily briefing Monday on the continued violence between Israel and Hamas”, so the tag reads. If only we had a similar exchange at WH briefings. Fast and Furious, Benghazi to name a couple. Maybe this can be an example of what the press can do to regain some respect, self-respect as well. While some diplomacy always goes on behind the scene, it is the man/woman on the street that it has to made clear to, we will support Israel. Now we hear that Hilary is heading over the Middle East to cast her spell. The same woman who with Susan Rice, and Samantha Power were behind this whole nasty destabilization of the region – Here

 

Obama thanks Egypt – earlier that AM, Morsi threatened Israel

Here we have an example of our foreign policy savant, Obama. Apparently he missed this briefing. Morsi prefers the demise of Israel. If we think we can keep buying off these countries to support our agenda, think again. 192 countries exist in the world, we give aid to 150.

But then again, what is our agenda in the Middle East?

Obama has  effectively destabilized the region. Jordan is next, that is for tomorrow’s post. Over one billion of our bucks each year to Egypt will not cut it for long. Here we go:

Not only did Morsi threaten Israel but they crowd he was speaking to started chanting about killing Jews . . . and Obama thanks him for it.

(Reuters) – U.S. President Barack  Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Friday to commend the country’s efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said.

Egypt’s prime minister, Hisham Kandil, has said Cairo is prepared to mediate a truce in the growing violence between Israel and Hamas, the Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip. Egypt’s government is allied with Hamas, but is also party to a 1979 peace treaty with Israel.

Previously:

Egypt will continue to support Gaza against continued attacks from Israeli armed forces, President Mohamed Morsy reiterated on Friday.

“The price will be high if the aggression continues,” Morsy said after he performed Friday prayers in Fatma Al-Sharbatly Mosque in Cairo’s Fifth Settlement.

“Egypt is different from yesterday,” he added, referring to his predecessor ousted President Hosni Mubarak’s soft stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

“We assure them [Israel] that the price will be high for continued aggression, and [we tell them] you have to bear the responsibility,” Morsy continued.

During Morsy’s speech, worshipers chanted: “Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, the army of Mohamed will return,” in reference to a historical battle fought between Muslims and Jews in Saudi Arabia.

“I say to those on behalf of all the Egyptian people that Egypt today is different from yesterday, and Arabs today are different from yesterday. I say confidently that Egypt will not leave Gaza alone,” Morsy said.

Abbas offers to release Hamas Terrorists to form Unity Deal

Looks like everything is on track for Obama in the Middle East. I am at a loss as to why Americans and American Jews in particular, are not outraged at what is going down. The intent is destroy Israel. It is clear.

As part of its latest list of incentives, the PA offered to place between 15,000 and 20,000 of Hamas’ forces in Gaza on official PA salary if Hamas joins in a unity government.

“The Obama administration’s abandonment of (U.S. ally President Hosni) Mubarak in Egypt sent a big sign to the moderate Arab world that we can no longer depend on American support,” said the official.

The official further argued that popular sentiment on the Palestinian streets dictates the PA must orient itself away from the U.S.

JERUSALEM – In a desperate bid to sign a unity government with Hamas, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has offered to release from prison scores of terrorists responsible for attacks against Jews, WND has learned.

The PA is funded and armed by the U.S.

Earlier this month, WND reported the PA has been engaged in an intense effort to convince the Hamas terrorist organization to join it in a new unity government.

According to a senior PA official, the PA has been sending mediators to Hamas in an effort to persuade it into a unity deal.
