Krauthammer: John Kerry Is “Essentially The Lawyer For Hamas”

'Look at the wreckage Kerry has done'

Columnist Charles Krauthammer wasn’t pulling any punches on tonight’s addition of “Special Report.”

Speaking on U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s foolish attempts to strike a peace deal between Israel and Hamas, Krauthammer said, “Egypt wanted a ceasefire in place which means no reward for Hamas starting this war by attacking the civilians, which is a war crime. And that was proposed before the ground incursion, the casualties would have been infinitely lower. Israel accepted; Hamas said no.”

Kerry goes over and then he negotiates in Paris with who?” Krauthammer asked. “Qatar and Turkey and returns essentially as the lawyer for Hamas, hands Israel a proposition that is so outrageous that the cabinet votes 19-0 against it.” 

Blasting Kerry’s diplomatic incompetence further, Krauthammer said, “Israeli cabinets have never voted 19-0 on whether the sunrises in the east.”

Krauthammer says Kerry’s deal was “unbelievable,” and would’ve “given Hamas all of its demands as a result–and there’s one thing he doesn’t seem to understand.”

There’s a miracle happening in the Middle East which is a tacit alliance between Israel, Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinian Authority of all people, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the Gulf Arabs, all of them are our friends who want to see Hamas squeezed, who supported the Arab league, supported the Egyptian peace plan and this entirely undermines it,” Krauthammer explains. 

It’s a peace plain that all the Arabs had supported,” he says, and Kerry and Obama’s approach “undermines it.”
