Palestinians Parrot Kerry’s Remarks About ‘Apartheid’

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Palestinians Echo Kerry on ‘Apartheid’

April 29, 2014

Lead Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, taking a cue from Secretary of State John Kerry, accused Israel of being an “apartheid” state on Tuesday.

“We believe that the international community must clarify to Israel that it’s choice of settlements and apartheid over peace will have political, legal, and financial ramifications,” Erekat said according to Ynet news.

The question is who is ‘echoing’ whom? The Palestinians have been saying this for years. Kerry was probably just echoing them.

Erekat’s comments come just days after Kerry ignited an international firestorm when he accused Israel of becoming an apartheid state during a closed door meeting with world leaders…

This is the problem with saying stupid things on the world stage. Which is a Kerry (and Biden) specialty.

The Palestinians will now cite Kerry’s remarks for the rest of time as official recognition of the validity of their claim that Israel is an apartheid state.

Lest we forget, John Kerry is the same guy who said back in 2007 (and since) that Iran has a right to pursue their nuclear program. Which the Iranians jumped on, and still cite to this day.

From the archives of Iran’s FARS News:

Kerry Backs Up Iran’s N. Rights

January 28, 2007

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency) – Former US presidential nominee John Kerry voiced full support for the Islamic Republic’s right to use civilian nuclear technology on the basis of the rules and regulations of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NTP).

Addressing a world Economic Forum meeting in Davos Switzerland on Saturday, Kerry also strongly rejected West’s demanded prerequisites for the resumption of nuclear talks with Iran…

The US politician also approved of Khatami’s views about increased tension and violence in the world, and concluded, "As Mr. Khatami said, violence increased in the region after the occupation of Afghanistan, Iraq and Bin Ladenism." …

Of course, back in 2007, Mr. Kerry was trying to undercut President Bush, any way he could. He doesn’t even have that excuse now.

    Like Hillary, Kerry has not accomplished anything other than sympathize with the muslim extremists.
