Palestinian leader President Mahmoud Abbas has a close relationship with Hamas, which is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood who thinks that Israel should be wiped off of the face of the earth. Charles Krauthammer says, “the Palestinians have shown again and again they are not interested in a peace deal with Israel.” Obama’s State Dept. spokesperson blames both sides for being “guilty” of not wanting to move towards peace. Secretary of State John Kerry, has not been able to broker a deal. Here’s what John Kerry had to say.
If Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become ‘an apartheid state,’ like the old South Africa. Jewish leaders are fuming over the comparison.
Kerry also went on to say that the window is closing on Russia regarding the Ukraine, and says “we are ready to act”, if Russia doesn’t back down from it’s aggression towards the Ukraine. Krauthammer says, “the window is closing in on the Ukraine….Kerry is living in a different universe, it’s really quite embarrassing.”
