U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Muslims Thursday night that the absence of peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is “a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation.”

He told a reception in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that the anger “has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity.”

This is not satire. This is real. This is actually what was declared by Kerry, former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and now the Secretary of State of the United States of America.

It would be funny if it were not true, but it certainly is sad when an intelligent person plays the role of idiot and connects dots that create a maze without an escape route by manufacturing the Arab world’s demands on Israel as the cause of all problems in the world, except for Ebola – so far.

The Muslim holiday reception was hosted by Shaarik Zafar, whom Kerry appointed last month as Special Representative to Muslim Communities. That was just after the Islamic State ISIS murderers hanged its first American victim, journalist James Foley. Kerry’s response at the installation ceremony of Zafar was, “The real face of Islam is a peaceful religion based on the dignity of all human beings.”

That is the premise for the twisted path that ends with the finger of blame for Muslim violence at the doorstep of Israel. The Obama administration is careful to not to single out Israel for the failure of talks but simply says so in a twisted way by damning every one of nearly 350,000 Jews in Jerusalem neighborhoods as “illegitimate’ and “illegal,” just like an equal number in Judea and Samaria.

Kerry began his speech by praising the “terrific $5.4 billion” raised in Cairo this week to rebuild Gaza. He did not mention that Hamas, which runs Gaza, has not agreed to disarm and has actually bragged that it is continuing to manufacture rockets to restore the stockpile lose in the recent war.

Once again, the Obama administration has ignored Israel’s insistence that there can be no peace with a terrorist organization that does not disavow its stated goal of destroying Israel.

Instead, the key is “negotiations,” a term which Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has successfully turned into “ultimatum.”

No peace in Gaza? No problem. Kerry said last night, “It is imperative that we find a way to get back to the negotiations for what everybody knows is, in the end, the only way to go forward that makes sense.”

And that is where his “Special Representative to Muslim Communities comes into play.

“We have the first faith-based office,” Kerry stated. “We have the office reaching out to the Islamic world. And when he started drafting our national strategic approach as a leader of a faith community, he began that strategy with two words: ‘religion matters.’”

Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and atheism never mattered in the State Dept’s 30-year goal of punishing Israel for having won the war against the Arab Muslim world in 1967, but all of a sudden religion matters because radical Islam is embarrassing to followers of Allah.

“What we’re really doing as we… celebrate Eid al-Adha is that we are celebrating sort of the meaning and importance of sacrifice and devotion in our lives,” said Pastor Kerry.

Sounding more like John Lennon than a man of individual faith, he cited the quest for “introspection and re-evaluation through Eid al-Adha and Yom Kippur.

Kerry painted a lovely picture of the world of “a young girl somewhere in New Delhi praying outside of a mosque, or kids or adults in Pakistan, girls singing songs and painting their hands with henna, or Shiites in the holy city of Najaf or fellow Shi’a celebrating Eid-e-Ghorban in Iran.”

Against this simplicity of universal unification, Kerry the sophomore whisked back to reality and pronounced, “It’s a very complex time… The extremism that we see, the radical exploitation of religion which is translated into violence, has no basis in any of the real religions. There’s nothing Islamic about what ISIL/Daesh stands for or is doing to people.”

Having ripped out half of the Koran that preaches the murder of Jews, Kerry’s next thread in his maze was demographics.

“When you have 65 percent of a country, as you do in many countries in the Middle East or South Central Asia or elsewhere, in north Horn of Africa, that are under the age of 35… and 50 percent under the age of 25, you are going to have a governance problem unless your governance is really addressing the demands and needs of that part of the population.”

This is the reason for the chaos in Syria, according to Kerry.

And how does he propose to stop the killing? It’s simple. Get Israel on the same track as the Palestinian Authority, of course.

“As I went around and met with people in the course of our discussions about the ISIL coalition, the truth is we – there wasn’t a leader I met with in the region who didn’t raise with me spontaneously the need to try to get peace between Israel and the Palestinians, because it was a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation that they felt – and I see a lot of heads nodding – they had to respond to. And people need to understand the connection of that. And it has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity, and Eid celebrates the opposite of all of that….

“What’s happening in Iraq is an interesting beginning of that, where Daesh has kind of drawn a line and made people stop and think, and Sunni and Shia are beginning to realize there’s a common problem out there and there is a way to try to work together.”

Kerry now can God, or perhaps Allah, for the Islamic State.

The ISIS, or ISIL as the Obama administration insist on calling it, gives Kerry another tiger’s tail to grab and continue to turn the other cheek to the incredibly complex thought that the radical Islamic theology is the root of radical Islamic violence.

Mashaal Vows Cease-Fire a Step to New ‘Resistance’ War against Israel

Hamas’ supreme leader Khaled Mashaal dashed any hopes of long-term peace with Israel in a speech in Qatar on Thursday in which he shot from the hip at Israel and also at his terrorist organization’s new partner, the rival Fatah movement headed by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

His lengthy speech in Qatar, which has financed Hamas terror and which fought Egyptian cease-fire proposals, followed by one day a “victory” speech by Ismail Haniyeh, the senior Hamas political leader in Gaza. Mashaal’s silence while Haniyeh accepted the cease-fire is a clear sign of a fierce power struggle between Hamas in Gaza and between Mashaal and Qatar, which holds the purse strings.

Mashaal also claimed victory, with lies that Hamas missiles hit the Ben Gurion Airport, which is not true, and that more than 5 million Israelis hid in bomb shelters, a gross exaggeration. However, there is no doubt that Hamas succeeded in scaring the daylight out of millions of Israelis, interrupting a few flights and generally turning half of Israel into sitting ducks.

And this won’t be the last time, regardless of a cease-fire, he warned.

“Whatever happened [in Gaza] is not the end to this story, and this is not the last operation to free Palestine. It was an important stop on the way to victory,” Mashaal declared.

His speech threw every obstacle possible on the road to negotiations with Israel. The talks are supposed to begin in a month, leaving open the possibility, or probability, that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is carrying on secret negotiations that will be formalized in 30 days.

The Prime Minister suffered another blow to any trust that Israelis may have for him with a report on Thursday that he met secretly with Jordanian King Abdullah, and perhaps Abbas, prior to the cease-fire, circumstantial evidence that Israel negotiated under fire, contrary to Netanyahu’s promise.

If Mashaal gets his way, there won’t be any talks because one of the new powers in Gaza is slated to be Abbas, whose security forces would patrol Gaza borders, according to the Egyptian proposal. That would provide Cairo with another tactic to get rid of Hamas.

Mashaal nailed Abbas to the wall in his speech, accusing him of throwing cold water on the resumption of the intifada during the war by allowing his security forces to limit protests.

“The next operation needs to use all of the Palestinian capabilities, not just part of them,” Mashaal said. “The resistance is holy and weapons are holy. There is no such thing as a country without weapons.”

A country or not, Gaza still has at least 2,000 rockets as well as anti-tank rockets and presumably anti-aircraft missiles. It still has rocket factories, one of which was filmed in production by Hamas during one of the failed cease-fires during the war.

Netanyahu had demanded that any halt in violence would be accompanied by disarming Hamas, but this week’s cease-fire only left the issue to be put on the negotiating table, along with Hamas’s demands for a deep-sea port and an airport.

Mashaal’s speech was full of hate and crude accusations that Israel inflicted a “Holocaust” on Gaza by “destroying schools and hospitals,” which all but the most extreme anti-Israel media now know were used by Hamas as rocket launching and terrorist command centers.

“We are against what Hitler did to the Jews, and Israel committed a second Holocaust in Gaza. Israel is an embarrassment to Jews and to the entire world,” according to Mashaal.

His rhetoric was aimed at Abbas as well as Israel. If and when negotiations begin, Egypt and the United States will be on the side of Abbas, who despite his unity government with Hamas has proved politically smart by a patient and single-minded tactic of using international support to slowly but surely win concession after concession from Israel until there is nothing left to negotiate.

Including Gaza as part of the Palestinian Authority works to Abbas’ benefit because it will solidify position that a Palestinian Authority state needs to on contiguous territory, meaning that Sderot residents can start packing up and leaving their homes as well as their bomb shelters, which would save Hamas lots of time and money when digging terror tunnels from the Western Negev to Ashdod.

Mashaal’s aim is the same as Mashaal, but his strategy is different When Mashaal says that there will be another war to “free Palestine,” he is referring to all of Israel, from Kiryat Shmona in the north to Eilat in the south, and from the Dead Sea in the east to the Mediterranean Sea on the west.

Abbas talks about a “two-state solution,” the magic phrase that sends U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry into hallucinations and hypnotizes the foreign media into pretending that the Palestinian Authority’s maps of “Palestine” don’t include the existence of Israel.

But Mashaal reminded everyone in his speech that he has people on his side.

He thanked his sponsors for terror, namely Qatar, Turkey, Yemen and Algeria, and he thanked South Africa and Latin American countries for boycotting Israel.
