(Video) Embarrassing: Israeli Settlers Mock Kerry Peacemaking With Spoof Video
This serves as another embarrassing hit for Secretary Kerry after recent comments on the Israeli peacemaking process. In the video, a group of Israeli settlers mock the recent comments. This video demonstrates the recent criticism of failure on the part of Kerry and the Obama Administration to handle the Israeli peace process.
Israel’s Yesha [settlers] Council has posted online a deliberately disrespectful spoof depicting America’s top diplomat – played by an actor resembling John Kerry – riding a camel and making a series of preposterous statements that belittle his understanding of the region’s complexities.
At one point, the Mr Kerry character is seen down-playing the importance of the Western Wall, one of the holiest sites in Judaism, in Jerusalem’s old city.
“Dividing Jerusalem is not an easy thing,” the actor says. “We must realise it is holy to all religions – Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Klingons and Hobbits. But what I’m saying is: ‘why fight over an old wall?’
I’ll build you a brand new wall, close to the beach.”
