Citing ‘Hysteria,’ Kerry Takes Latest Jab at Israeli Critics of Iran Nuclear Talks

Email a copy of "Citing ‘Hysteria,’ Kerry Takes Latest Jab at Israeli Critics of Iran Nuclear Talks" to a friend – In an interview with Israel’s Channel 10 television network on Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry accused Israeli critics of the framework nuclear deal between world powers and Iran of “hysteria.”

Kerry said, “I believe that where we are heading will in fact protect Israel. President [Barack] Obama has absolutely pledged [Iran] will not get a nuclear weapon. … We will have inspectors in there every single day.”

The secretary of state said critics of the deal “really need to look at the facts, and they need to look at the science of what is behind those facts.” Earlier last week, Kerry told the Boston Globe that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position on Iran is “mythology.”

On Saturday, in a video message marking the Washington Institute for Near East Policy’s 30th anniversary, Netanyahu said the framework deal “will endanger Israel, big time.” He noted how Iran “repeatedly threatens to annihilate Israel” but “doesn’t just talk the talk, it walks the walk.”

“[Iran] arms terrorists with thousands of rockets and missiles to be fired at our citizens,” said Netanyahu. “Israel simply cannot afford to let Iran obtain the capability to follow through on its genocidal designs.”

    In using the word “hysteria”, Secretary of State Kerry need only cite the buildup to the invasion of Iraq when the same Jewish neocons along with Netanyahu who were carrying on about Iraq’s WMDs and how they were going to launch them upon America (and Israel) are the very same chicken.littles screaming about what an “existential threat” Iran is to Israel (and the U.S.). Kristol, Krauthammer, Wolfowitz, Netanyahu, Dershowitz, ad nauseum are lying just ascegregiously now as they were lying then, and it in no small measure accounts for the fact that two thirds of the American public support President Obama’s treaty nregotiations with the Iranians.

    In a recent speech the Ayatollah stated unequivocally that inspectors would not be allowed access to Iran’s nuclear facilities. Kerry insists that Iran will be inspected “every day for the next 25 years.” One of these men is fibbing. I choose to believe the Ayatollah because his statement is more credible, and Kerry has been an unabashed liar since Viet-Nam.
