The Times of Israel: “Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly made an angry phone call to Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren in protest of government plans to legalize four West Bank outposts that had previously been set for demolition.
Kerry made the unusual move last Thursday to ask (Michael) Oren for an explanation as to why the government is taking a step that he felt is likely to damage efforts to restart peace negotiations with the Palestinians, Haaretz reported on Tuesday, citing an anonymous Israeli source.”
Opinion: But not-so-former terrorist Mahmoud Abbas is coddled and treated with kid gloves. Maybe the Secretary of State should ask why the PA joined in with Hamas last November in firing rockets into Israel. Maybe he should ask Mahmoud why there have been no elections in the West Bank since 2009 and then he could ask him when he plans on acknowledging Israel’s right to exist.
Somebody needs to tell big John that God does not want His land divided (Joel 3:1-2).
