Egypt/Israel To John Kerry´s
Mediation Offer --´Please God, NO!´

Breitbart Big Peace, by Thomas Rose

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/20/2014 10:45:56 PM

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Richard Stengel gave a peculiar apology to outraged Twitter users on Sunday after he tweeted #UnitedForGaza to his 15,000 followers.

I wonder if Hamas is one of the 15,000.

Finally .... the world is speaking up! Thank you Egypt and Israel for exposing to the international community the fraud that is pretending to lead the United States of America. American citizens who have unconditionally supported this administration should be ashamed !!! I pray for America.

An excellent pastime for the Count of Marmalade. Instruct him to negotiate a ceasefire between the Ham-asses and the adversary of their choice. Promise foreign aid for both of them.
If successful (unlikely), nominate Obama for an Oak Leaf Cluster on his Nobel Medal.
Tell MSNBC and CNN.

Isn´t this the bloody limit?

Fire the fool. And do something to remove Obama´s power. And that of his feckless WH lackeys.

Insofar as Hamas proclaims itself committed solely to the goal of destroying the State of Israel and murdering all the Jews in it, is it now the official position of the United States that proud and self-proclaimed practitioners of genocide have certain causes, claims or grievances that deserve to be heard by the Secretary of State of the United States of America.

US would gladly trade 5 of the Kerry stooges for one of the BiBi leaders..If the leader should be he, then we certainly made a very wise trade.

Lurch thinks the world can´t function without his input. Kerry hit all the Sunday talk shows yesterday, He sounded stupid as usual and said he planned to get involved in the peace talks with Israel & the Palestinians. This egotistical man thinks he can solve all the problems of the world just look at his record. LOL

Metastatic chutzpah permeates every level of this Administration, especially, we learn, the State Department.

For Kerry to simply assume, without consultation, that his brand of diplomacy would be automatically welcomed is the height of hubris. Like his boss, he believes his own notions of right and wrong are not debatable.

It´s amazing to watch this kind of hubris without admiring the ability of the Left to so reliably and consistently deceive themselves and the politically ignorant.

Pomposity has really carried this guy quite far. a shame.

Thank goodness for the Egyptians who drove off the radical Muslim Brotherhood AGAINST the wishes of the BO regime.

Still no "liberal" democracy, Egypt nevertheless demonstrates more intelligence --or perhaps political acuity and wisdom-- than a lot in our political leadership.

Think of it, the Egyptians said NO! to BO & Co., Inc.

There are treacherous people all around, bringing to mind the great Cicero´s exclamation: "O tempora! o mores!" as Rome spiraled into disarray and corruption.

Thankfully no one fears Obama, and Israel can ignore our government.

If we would cut off ALL money sent to the Middle East, Israel would be safer. We are paying for the tunnels and weapons that are being used against Israel. Christians here will donate to Israel´s defense if America drops all foreign aid.

Israel and Egypt don´t want US involvement or John Kerry because they know we are too supportive of the terrorists. Have to wonder if Egypt might consider a move against Hamas. If Hamas fight Israel for about 30 days, they would likely be quite vulnerable to Egyptian forces. One can hope.

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.
