Today’s Daily Caller posted a small section of the recent document dump from Wikileaks.
According to the article:
“On a February trip to the Middle East, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman John Kerry (D-MA) told Qatari leaders that the Golan Heights should be returned to Syria, that a Palestinian capital should be established in East Jerusalem as part of the Arab-Israeli peace process, and that he was “shocked” by what he saw on a visit to Gaza”
Israel without the Golan Heights is indefensible. To give that land to Syria is to invite an invasion. The article points out that the discussion of the Arab-Israeli peace process took place in Qatar with Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim Al Thani and the Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa in February. To me this seems to be a total sell-out of Israel.
I guess I have one major questions–how come all the peace demands have been made on Israel? Where is the concern for the number of rockets that have been fired into Israeli civilian areas by Israel’s neighbors? If John Kerry is suggesting more ‘land for peace’ deals for Israel (none of which have worked in the past), is he ignorant of the history of the Middle East or is he simply not a friend of Israel?
