After a series of harsh comments from the US regarding Netanyahu’s opposition to the Iran nuclear deal, Israel is interpreting Kerry’s decision to skip Jerusalem during his upcoming Middle East trip as a snub.
Israel is not included in US Secretary of State John Kerry’s itinerary for his upcoming trip to the Middle East.
Kerry has openly criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for speaking out against the Iranian nuclear deal, in which the US commits to defending Iran, and he warned Israel against attacking the Islamic Republic.
Kerry’s itinerary includes a stop in Egypt for bilateral dialogue followed by a visit to Qatar to meet with the foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries to discuss the Iranian nuclear agreement.
Asked by reporters on Monday why Kerry was not stopping in Israel, State Department spokesman John Kirby replied, “It’s just not part of the parameters for this trip. It’s not – it wasn’t a deliberate decision not to go… [Kerry] has been in touch with Prime Minister Netanyahu many, many times over the last several weeks in terms of discussing the deal and the parameters of it. So it’s not as if we aren’t in constant communication with Israeli counterparts about this.”
Kirby clarified that Netanyahu and Kerry last spoke on July 16.
Nonetheless, Kerry’s itinerary is being interpreted in Israel as a rebuke to Netanyahu for openly campaigning against the Iranian nuclear deal based on several recent statements by the US secretary of state. In a speech Friday at the Council on Foreign Relations, Kerry warned, “I fear that what could happen is if Congress were to overturn [the deal], our friends in Israel could actually wind up being more isolated and more blamed.”
When asked by NBC the same day whether the nuclear deal increased the odds that Israel would unilaterally attack Iranian nuclear sites, either by conventional military means or by cyber warfare, Kerry said, “That’d be an enormous mistake, a huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel and for the region, and I don’t think it’s necessary.”
An Israeli official told The New York Times in response, “We reject the threats directed at Israel in recent days… The regrettable attempt to intimidate Israel will not prevent us from voicing our concerns about this deal, which poses direct threats to Israel’s security.”

Every Friday like clockwork, thousands of Iranians take the time to chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”, as if they plan on trying to kill us someday. Good thing they’re just kidding, right? Otherwise it would be ultra stupid of Obama to negotiate with them. Ok no, wait.. The Iranians aren’t kidding… and they were just handed a bazillion dollars to play with. Get your helmets guys.
Death to America (Persian مرگ بر آمریکا Marg bar Âmrikâ) is an anti-American political slogan and chant which has been in use in Iran since the inception of the Iranian revolution in 1979. Ayatollah Khomeini, the first leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, popularized the term. He opposed the chant for radio and television, but not for protests and other occasions. In most official Iranian translations, the phrase is translated into English as the less offensive “Down with America.” The chant “Death to America” has come to be employed by various anti-American groups and protesters worldwide. Another similar slogan used in Iran was “Death to the Soviet Union”.

Please be advised that due to the nature of the topics frequently discussed and reported by Mr. Shoebat, and due to the disgusting and evil nature of ISIS and other assorted moronic tools, most of the content posted on his page is extremely disturbing and the majority of photos are horribly graphic. If you don’t want to be confronted by pictures of decapitated heads and burnt bodies today then you might want to hold off on viewing this link until you’re ready. It’s important to note however, that we’re currently living in a comfortable North American bubble that is destined to pop in the near future. There is an untold amount of stuff going on in the world today that the mainstream media either doesn’t want to share or isn’t allowed to share due to publication bans and gag orders.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters across the world. The true infidels who come in the name of Allah may be able to kill our bodies but they can’t kill our spirits, which will return to the One who gave them. Thanks to Jesus and the great mercy and love of our Father in heaven, we have already won the war.
