John Kerry's Broken Moral Compass

US Secretary of State John Kerry has managed to disappoint friends of Israel rather quickly since his appointment by President Obama.
US Secretary of State John Kerry compared the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing to the nine Turkish activists killed by the IDF as they tried to break Gaza’s naval blockade, at a press conference in Istanbul on Sunday.

“I know it’s an emotional issue with some people,” Kerry said of the Mavi Marmara deaths. “I particularly say to the families of people who were lost in the incident: We understand these tragedies completely and we sympathize with them.”

He then added, “And nobody – I mean, I have just been through the week of Boston and I have deep feelings for what happens when you have violence and something happens and you lose people that are near and dear to you. It affects a community, it affects a country,” Kerry said. “We’re very sensitive to that.” (JPOST)

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) on Monday berated Kerry:
“It is never helpful when a moral equivalency is made confusing terrorists with their victims. As our American friends were made all too aware once again last week, the only way to deal with the evils of terrorism is to wage an unrelenting war against its perpetrators, wherever they may be,” (TOI)
Maybe we got it all wrong -- and THIS is what Kerry meant:

Why are you comparing the Boston Terrorist to Marmara? The guys from Boston aren't Muslims.

Kerry, in his active life, has been a soldier, a traitor, and a Senator, among other things. He's most accomplished at marrying into money. His lies about the US armed forces in Vietnam set the stage for his new lies now.

Has the average Israeli waken up yet to their foolish and misplaced faith in looking to their Idol America for anything ?
Sadly the secular Jew has no where else to turn and so like the poodle Netanyahu they continue to bow to their false god of no peace and no security.
The Road Map leads to Sheol !
