John Kerry - who has come to us determined and is acting out of an incomprehensible obsession and messianic fervor - cannot teach me anything about the conflict with the Palestinians.
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon • Dismissing both the intent behind, and relevance of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s role in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Kerry, who has visited the middle east repeatedly in the past several months on the matter, presented a security plan to Israel that the minister also defiantly condemned, calling it “not worth the paper it was written on.” He has since apologized for the comments, reportedly made in private in both the U.S. and in Israel, saying he meant no offense, while the White House termed the charge “inappropriate.” Said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: “To question his motives and distort his proposals is not something we would expect from the defense minister of a close ally.” source

Did John Kerry just “Pull a Homer” on Syria?

It was an off-the-cuff argument, sure. But when the Secretary of State suggested theoretically that Syria could hand over its chemical weapons stockpile to the rest of the world if it wanted to avoid a conflict, it wasn’t considered a workable solution, even by Kerryuntil Russia bit. Now, while there’s still work to be done to make a deal happen, and it’s not a sure thing, it certainly seems like Kerry did something (though he’s playing it off) which has the potential to live up to the standard suggested in this Simpsons clip above.
