Susan Rice blames a video … again: Israeli settlers’ mockery of John Kerry ticks off national security adviser

John Kerry’s attempts to make the world understand the plight of poor, oppressed jihadists and his approach to Middle East “peace” are being mocked in Israel.

From The Telegraph:

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.”
Dani Dayan, the Yesha Council’s international envoy, said the video aimed to “highlight the infeasibility of John Kerry’s proposals, which are at best unrealistic and at worst a danger to the State of Israel.”

It’s a Borat-style parody of the U.S. secretary of state. But enough about the actual Kerry. Here’s the video mocking those “John Kerry Solutions”:

Incredibly not funny or fair, according to Susan Rice:

Rice should be thrilled because now she has another video to blame if something goes horribly awry in the region.
