Kerry wakes up, calls for Gaza disarmament

Something slapped John Kerry in the face.
While American officials continue to fume at the Israeli media for its harsh criticism of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s efforts to reach a ceasefire last week, apparently it had some effect. During a speech, Kerry says that “any process to resolve the crisis in Gaza… must lead to the disarmament of Hamas.” In a ceasefire proposal Kerry had submitted to Israel on Friday, no disarmament of Hamas was mentioned.
Israeli ministers had unanimously rejected the draft, arguing that it undermined the Egyptian ceasefire proposal that Israel had previously accepted and Hamas had rejected, and reflected the input of Turkey and Qatar to the clear benefit of Hamas, sources told TOI earlier Monday.
The wording marked an upgrading of Hamas’s standing, to an entity on an equivalent level with Israel, the sources said. And it provided specific gains for Hamas while including only amorphous language regarding Israel’s security needs, they said.
However, Kerry’s proposal did reflect “a position that both demilitarization and the reconstruction of Gaza are important agenda items that follow negotiations that follow a ceasefire,” a senior US official insists Sunday night.
I can't wait to hear what this costs us.

Obama is going to think a few more days on what Israel's punishment should be for the US screwing up so massively. I'm a little worried to be honest, given the current date of the Jewish calendar.

Obama is a secret Hamas supporter. His actions in Egypt trying to install the MB backfired, and now instead of having a stronger organization to provide "balance" (ie fight Israel) he sees his work being undone. Hamas is done for. I am sure Hussein will want us to suffer for it.

May his fate and their fate be like all the other wicked people who have made the Jews suffer.

Doesn't matter what Kerry has now said. He and Obama clearly cannot be trusted.
