Administration ‘Pushes Back’ At Israeli Criticism Of Kerry

From the Associated Press:

US fuming over Israeli criticism of Kerry

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration pushed back strongly Monday at a torrent of Israeli criticism over Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest bid to secure a cease-fire with Hamas, accusing some in Israel of launching a "misinformation campaign" against the top American diplomat.

Notice how, as usual, our one party news media never reports the actual criticism of the Obama administration. They only ever report the ‘push back.’

"It’s simply not the way partners and allies treat each other," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Is Ms. Psaki irony-proof? The whole problem is the shabby way in which Obama and Kerry have treated our ally Israel (among others).

Her comments were echoed by the White House, where National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the U.S. was "dismayed" by mischaracterizations of Kerry’s efforts.

More irony. Ms. Rice is perhaps the world’s leading authority on mischaracterizations. But it’s a wonder that the administration didn’t accuse the Israelis of racism.

Israeli media reports have cast Kerry as seeking a cease-fire that is more favorable to Hamas and being dismissive of key Israeli concerns…

And, of course, they are absolutely correct.

Kerry himself, in a speech to the Center for American Progress, noted the criticism but did not give ground.

Note that Kerry spoke before the Soros funded Democrat front group that is well known for being anti-Israeli.

"Make no mistake, when the people of Israel are rushing to bomb shelters, when innocent Israeli and Palestinian teenagers are abducted and murdered, when hundreds of innocent civilians have lost their lives, I will and we will make no apologies for our engagement," he said.

None of the arrogant buffoons in this administration ever apologizes. They are stupid — and smug about it.

The coordinated pushback in Washington came amid growing U.S. frustration with Israel as Palestinian civilian casualties mount amid a sustained Israeli air and ground war in the Gaza Strip. In recent days, U.S. officials have been using subtle yet noticeably tougher language in pressing Israel to accept an immediate and unconditional humanitarian cease-fire.

What is humanitarian about stopping a campaign before you wipe out all of the weapons of people who are pledged to wiping your country off the face of the earth?

The U.S. has made little progress in achieving that objective. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a televised speech Monday that his country must be ready for "a prolonged campaign" against Hamas in Gaza…

Thanks God for Benjamin Netanyahu. (Though it’s no wonder Obama hates him.)
