When Jews are left wing and stupid, they are REALLY STUPID.
My husband, on hearing the news just shrugged and said that "you have to be nice to your American Uncle".
Trust me, it sounds MUCH better in Hebrew, but it's basically about Israelis sucking up to their American relatives so they bring you the Nike running shoes/iPhone/iPad or whatever when they come to Israel for a vacation.
The code name for the visit is
Secretary Kerry to skip Israel in first trip as Secretary of State.
However: "From Feb. 24 to March 6, Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar."
What could possibly be wrong with that?
Hagel: Israel is an apartheid state and Netanyahu is some kinda crazy extremist Jew boy.
