kerryThe United States this evening condemned the non-stop rocket fire by Hamas terrorists against Israel.

Secretary of State John Kerry spoke to Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to night in light of the heavy rocket fire. Kerry told Netanyahu to “act with restraint” in responding to Hamas’ pounding of southern Israel.

State Department spokesperson Jean Psaki said that the US supported Israel’s right to defend itself. “We condemn the firing of missiles at Israel and support Israel’s right to defend itself.”

  1. Of course Mr. Kerry! They will act with restraint! Let them obliterate them now – once and for all – and from here on RESTRAINT!

    What a Doofus!

  2. Maybe Mr. Kerry can go tour the nice places where the rockets keep falling from the hateful monster’s hands. Then maybe he can understand why there is a need for political and military action. Mr. Kerry, you would like that right? Or perhaps its easier to stay in your safe American Mansion without a really worried look in your eyes and tell the world how to live. Nice thought.

  3. For all those wondering what does the Obama administration mean when they tell Israel to “show restraint”. They mean that as long as the Hamas rockets do not cause death to Israeli civilians, Israel MUST limit its response to bombing empty sand dunes and parking lots in Gaza.
    This means that ONLY AFTER Israeli civilians have died (?”?), then Israel is permitted (by the Obama administration) to retaliate against actual Hamas terror targets, and even at that point they must not hit any terrorists hiding among Gaza civilians. It means that Israel is not permitted to defend itself and protect its citizens from injury and death, it’s only permitted to RETALIATE, and only if they don’t harm any Arab civilians that Hamas terrorists use as human shields!

  4. Same old story for years but just different faces. Einstein said definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. Today it’s Obama and Kerry and the past there were others and so it will continue the same exact rhetoric and there are tons of people who get all In to it and feel all intelligent and it’s a new idea the peace process. But it’s beyond predictable and it’s therefore so snnoying and hardly news. It’s yesterday’s news and today’s and tommorow a news. May g-d help us Jews fast

  5. Definition of contradiction in terms: We condemn the firing of missiles at Israel and support Israel’s right to defend itself.”

  6. To no 1, don’t stop: 100% get rid of all of them, then will have restraint, and at the same time get rid of that Obama

  7. when was the last time Mr. Kerry was tested for drugs? Could any sane mind believe this-show restraint! Thousands of people are living in bomb shelters because of our weak gov’t. They are heeding his call and showing restraint that is why you must be crazy to live there!

  8. Anonymous, my friend: the predictability of the lack of consonance in your repeated writings indicates a mind that craves contact with a semblance of human thought but struggles valiantly to express coherently fathomable ideas.veering back and forth between nouns that must strain in vain to reach a concensus of common language, the effect is breathtaking in its cacophonous echo, similar to a dimly lit lamp surging through a violent flow of murky water on a balmy day in a jungle of unintended relapses.

  9. US agrees with Israel’s right to defend itself ONLY IN PRINCIPLE–NOT IN PRACTICE. Israel should ignore the opinion of the US and do what must be done to protect it’s citizens.

  10. MR. KERRY. IF IT WAS THE USA THAT WAS RECEPIENT OF CONTINUOUS BOMBARDMENTS FROM AN ENEMY SEEKING TO TERRORIZE INNOCENT CIVILIANS–WOULD YOU ALSO PREACH RESTRAINT?? ANY COUNTRY WOULD ERADICATE THE ENEMY UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES , SO WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD?????????

  11. to #5: what do you mean by ‘permitted’? does israel need permission to defend itself? how come we are being called on for ‘restraint’ in our mourning and in our reaction to the bombings and no one is asking them to restrain from having parties to celebrate death and murder? bibi’s phone call to the parents of the killed arab is the jewish way of doing things, but why offer condolences when the arabs rejoice in the death of their ‘martyrs’? they don’t mourn the death of their children. the arab mothers have b3een quoted as saying they wish they had more children to blow themselves up. as golda meir said, there will never be peace until the arabs love their children more than they hate the jews

  12. this restrain message maybe a complement to Israel because he remembers when Israel gets angry, 1948,1967,1973 How many nations were against Israel and Israel won the wars and were even strengthened.

  13. Keri & Susan Rice are a disgrace to every American taxpayer!!! Why they retain their job, is mind boggling!

  14. No Mr. Kerry. If it were your son that was kidnapped & killed you wouldn’t have any restraint to show.

    This is insulting. As if Jewish blood is cheap.
