Habayit Hayehudi Chair to Kerry: You Are a Hypocrite


john-kerryThe following letter was sent to Secretary of State John Kerry by Ayelet Shaked, chairperson of the Habayit Hayehudi party.

To: United States Secretary of State John Kerry

Dear Sir,

In light of the current situation that you have brought about, I feel that I simply cannot be bound by the restraints of “politically correct” wording, and I will therefore allow myself to convey my following message to you in the most straightforward fashion:

Mr. Secretary of State, by forcing Israel to capitulate to terrorism by releasing murdering terrorists with so much blood on their hands that the United States would never dream of releasing them if it was their own citizens whom they murdered, you are not only being extremely hypocritical, but are actually dabbling in experimentation and gambling by putting me and my children’s lives at risk.

Your forcing us to release these terrorists with actual blood on their hands is made all the more absurd, cynical and vicious by the fact that your country refuses until this day to release Jonathan Pollard from jail, despite the unprecedented term he has served thus far.

Mr. Secretary, the price of releasing over a hundred convicted murders will be borne by my and my people, not by you.

How will you carry the burden of the terrible price towards which you are leading us?

You have forced us into peace talks during a period of time that the entire Middle East is in chaos without realizing that by doing so, you have foolishly put us in an impossible situation in which we cannot and will not make any concessions. By your own hand, you have raised expectations to a dangerous level, one that might cause the whole region to spin out of control once those expectations are proven unrealistic, like so many times before.

The past four years in Israel have been as quiet and peaceful as ever. Therefore, I suggest to you that you perform your job in a much more effective and relevant fashion by focusing your attention on Syria and Egypt, where people are actually getting slaughtered.


Ayelet Shaked, Member of Knesset
Chair, Habayit Hayehudi

  1. It’s all about how much you want to pay for America’s veto in the UN. There are no gifts in International Politics – just price tags. No one is forcing anyone to do anything.

  2. Gut Gezugt I agree , when the Arabs make Peace amongst themselves then I’ll give up every inch of land plus the candy store. Will never happen. “Àhl charbecha tichyeh’

  3. well said. But of course all Kerry (and Obama) are interested in now is their legacy and the noble peace prize. Who cares about Israel.

  4. To the Hon M.K.Shaked:I applaud you for your conviction courage and honesty for finally saying what had to be said in a very articulate and sraight forward manner.

  5. Right, high screams “hypocrite” shouted by people claiming “biblical” rights to the land of israel while ridiculing Torah and trying to uproot it.

  6. The hypocrites are the MKs in the Bayit Yehudi Party. If they really object to this, they have more than enough votes to bring down the government.

  7. Hypocrite is to stay in the govt that releases terrorist murderers and then scream how terrible it is, blood will be on her hands as well when the murderers continue doing what they do best…. Im Hashem lo yishmor ir….
