Secretary of State: ‘I see a lot of heads nodding’
By Lee Smith for Tablet Magazine
Last week John Kerry’s peace process moved from its mannerist phase to something else—something very dangerous and destructive. At a State Department reception celebrating the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha, Kerry said Israel was responsible for the rise of the Islamic State.
“As I went around and met with people in the course of our discussions about the ISIL coalition,” said Kerry, “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.”
