John F Kerry Will You Please Stay Home

Last week the snow storm of the century hit the Middle East. Israel and especially Jerusalem, Israel is blanketed with centimeters of snow. Many have been without power for days, with no heat or hot water in some of the coldest temperatures the area has seen in a long time. Streets were impassible.  The city shut down. Jerusalem was under siege.

Meanwhile,  in these terrible conditions, the main highway in and out of Jerusalem was shut. It was  closed to traffic, so that John F Kerry could come and go freely along with his TV truck convoy.  Thousands were stranded on the road. It was Friday, so to add insult to injury, the challah deliveries from Jerusalem did not get out and around the country before the Shabbat.

I saw this ‘plow truck’ that morning going along a major Jerusalem street, with its shovel up (on one of the only clean streets). Had to stop and wonder if this was Kerry’s private plow too?

I have no lights in my bathroom and the power on fridge is out again. City resources are stretched to the limit. Buses have stopped running again due to ice. We still have not recovered from the snow storm.

Now we hear you plan another trip to Israel on Thursday!

Please, John F Kerry, will you please stay home – or get a helicopter and stop shutting the main road and lifeline to Jerusalem.

Or if you want to talk to Abbas, get a room in Ramallah!

With friends like you who needs enemies?

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets

    Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of Bibi stays this guy from the swift completion of his appointed rounds.

      So you don’t understand hints? OK, I’ll say it directly: John F. Kerry is a persona non grata in Israel. The same is true for his boss Hussein.

      • Jim_from_Iowa

        He’s not exactly rushing the Israel border surreptitiously. You better tell your government officials of Kerry’s status among the Israeli people.

          Bibi posed on Friday with Kerry looking at beautiful snowy, view while thousands of Israelis sat in cold. Today if Knesset can finally open late to talk about government response to snow, wonder if they will mention Kerry’s visit. They did NOT announce on radio of Friday that Highway #1 was closed because of Kerry, let public think it was weather related.

    on behalf of the American people, I would like to apologize to Israel for Kerry. I don’t know which is worse: his foolish dhimmi deal with Iran or his conviction that Israel is to blame for there not being peace with the Palestinians.

    either way: big apologies. if it makes you feel any better, we don’t like him either.

      John F. Kerry – I wonder what is his middle name F.. stand for what I am thinking? John F..k Kerry and F…k hussein obama, right???
      I not just dislike him, I hate him and wish that his convoy hit the iceberg and he perirished like the Titanic.

        I think he’s a nitwit, but calling for his death is not cool.

        • Real Jstreets

          Not calling for personal anyone’s death, just want to have access road to Jerusalem, Israel open to public. Especially after a week of siege, is that too much to ask?

      • Real Jstreets

        “F” is for Forbes, but there is also a four-letter word some have used.

    • Real Jstreets

      Thank you, glad to hear there are still some thinking Americans left.

  • asb

    Oh not again…

    • Real Jstreets

      Yep, that is what they are saying.

  • Shimona from the Palace

    Oh, FGS, no! No, no,no!
    I need the Jerusalem – Tel Aviv highway to remain open on Thursday so I can get to the opera (and back).
