U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the following statement to YWN moments ago:
“While Secretary Kerry mentioned Gaza in his speech, he seems to have forgotten the history of the settlements in Gaza, where the Israeli government forced settlers to withdraw from all settlements and the Palestinians responded by sending rockets from Gaza into Israel.
This is something that people of all political stripes in Israel vividly remember.
While he may not have intended it, I fear Secretary Kerry, in his speech and action at the UN, has emboldened extremists on both sides.”
— U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer
Oh please. Schumer always does this, he opposed the Iran deal once it became clear they could get it passed without him, so he could say he opposed it and continue to pretend to be pro-Israel. The fact is that his party has been betraying Israel left and right for the last eight years, and if he was remotely concerned about it he wouldn’t still be a democrat.
I doubt Kerry had the intelligence to understand anything about the realities and possibilities in Eretz Yisroel.
Maybe he’s just as clueless about the rest of the world – who knows?
The world thinks of settlements as little outposts, when in fact they are big, beautiful Israeli cities.
Excuse me, senator big mouth. But you back Hussein Obama in every single policy decision that mattered. Every single one. The iran deal has your vote. There is no tangible thing that you have ever done to counter the obvious direction this sonei yisroel was going all of this time.
Let it sink in: Schumer enabled the iran deal, along with his party.
Schumer speaking now is solely to save his own tail. The party that booed god… that booed Jerusalem at their convention… The party that destabilized the middle East. That lied about the video when our ambassador was assassinated… that allows thousands of Muslim refugees into the us when our own intelligence agencies tell us they are afflicted with Isis…millions into europe… destabilized Iraq allowing the spread of isis… Hussein Obama did all of this and senator big mouth says AND DOES nothing. Attack republicans, back Obama, no matter what.
Jews. Wake up. Suddenly senator big mouth will be an 11th hour convert to the church of realism? Suddenly this one tiny unpredictable thing pops up out of ‘nowhere’??
Jews. Wake up. Realize who your friends are. Realize which party stands with our enemies. (Realize that conservatives like Huckabee, Cruz, Lee,… are so much more in the side of western civilization than this big mouth party hack!)
Jews. Wake up.
Shumer had a jelly doughnut and a homemade latka and instantly a wave of genuine Jewish pride washed over him. Shaking with anticipation he picked up the phone and called YWN. Tomorrow, after the latke and doughnut digests, he will shake his head in shock at what he did…
The first comment is the most insightful. Our wonderful Senator from NY in his supposedly “pro Israel” statement ends by saying he fears it will embolden extremists on both sides. He is incapable of taking a strong stance against party.
Moral equivalency and Liberalism are his reigion not Judaism.
Every city in Israel began as a settlement!
This nut job can only Winn in NY and California!!
These people are mentally ill
Mr. Shummer get in front of the media and cameras and say it.
