Israeli anti-Kerry demonstrators outside US consulate

I used this picture rather than the one on the JPost's website, because I know the man in the picture and I suspect that a lot of you know him too. He's Yisrael Medad, and he's an American Israeli who writes a blog called My Right Word.

On Sunday, a group of revenants held a demonstration against US Secretary of State John FN Kerry outside the US consulate in Jerusalem.
Dozens of protesters gathered to condemn US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday at Jerusalem’s US Consulate for remarks he made Thursday about the prospect of a third intifada due to Israeli intransigence, which they said resulted in the Friday firebombing of a car in Judea.

The protest was scheduled to feature the charred remains of the vehicle allegedly firebombed by Palestinian terrorists Friday in Gush Etzion, narrowing killing the married couple inside, but police did not permit it to be delivered to the event sponsored by the YESHA Council.

In Kerry’s statements, broadcast during a joint interview between Channel 2 and Palestine TV, he deemed  Judea and Samaria settlements as illegitimate, warned of Israel’s isolation if peace talks fail, and asked, “Does Israel want a third intifada?”

Participants at the Sunday morning protest denounced Kerry for inciting Friday’s violence, which resulted in the couple’s hospitalization at Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem Medical Center for moderate burns after their vehicle was struck by several Molotov Cocktails.

Shai, who attended the demonstration, but requested his last name be omitted, said his daughter’s teacher was the driver of the vehicle.

“Where else in the world does your daughter’s teacher not show up for school because miraculously she survived a fire bombing?” he asked.

Deeming Kerry’s words a “self-fulfilling prophecy,” Shai said he strongly questioned the mediator’s impartiality, blaming him for the attack.

“He’s essentially acting as spokesperson for the Palestinian Authority, which continues to incite violence,” he said.
There's much more. Read the whole thing.  More pictures here.
