In an interview with Rolling Stone last week, traitorous former Secretary of State John Kerry praised the Trump-brokered deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain, but tried to claim he had long recommended the steps taken to achieve peace.
“This has been in the making for a number of years now,” Kerry stated. “I talked many times about reducing the sort of crazy hangover of lack of socialization between these countries.” And yet, “It’s not peace in the Middle East. Nobody should pretend that. It has nothing to do with the Palestinians.”
Kerry was rightly humiliated last month after video went viral from a 2016 speech in which he shut down the possibility of Israel-Arab peace without first solving the Palestinian conflict. “I’ve heard several prominent politicians in Israel sometimes saying, well, the Arab world is in a different place now, we just have to reach out to them, and we can work some things with the Arab world, and we’ll deal with the Palestinians. No, no, no, and no,” he asserted. “There will be no advanced and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process and Palestinian peace. Everybody needs to understand that.”
Trump, Israel’s Netanyahu, and a growing number of Arab countries ignored Kerry’s foreign policy negativity. Neither Trump nor Netanyahu even mentioned the Palestinians during the accords ceremony, which Trump hailed as the “dawn of a new Middle East.”
