The truth is that trends on the ground, violence,
rrorism, incitement, settlement expansion, and the seemingly endless occupation. They are combining to destroy hopes for peace on both sides, and increasingly cementing and irreversible one-state reality that most people do not actually want.>> But now I must express my deep disappointment with the speech today of John Kerry.
What he did was spend most of his speech blaming Israel for the lack of peace by passionately condemning a policy of enabling Jews to live in their historic homeland in their eternal capital Jerusalem.>> They failed to recognize that this friend, the United States of America, that has done more to support Israel than any other country, this friend that has blocked countless efforts to delegitimize Israel cannot be true to our own values, or even the stated democratic values of Israel.
And we cannot properly defend and protect Israel if we allow a viable two-state solution to be destroyed before our own eyes.>> Palestinian rejection of Israel and support for terror are what the nations of the world should focus on if they truly want to advance peace. And I can only express my regret and say that it's a shame that Secretary Kerry does not see this simple truth.
