Housing Construction vs. Human Destruction

The worst part of the new Obama-Kerry Middle Eastern initiative isn’t that it punishes the Israelis—it’s that it rewards the Palestinians by endorsing their false narrative, identifying Israeli communities in disputed territories as the chief obstacle to peace.

What have the Palestinians done to deserve this support? Their corrupt, aging leadership hasn’t conducted national elections for ten years, and continues to encourage terrorist murders while blocking new negotiations. The worst part of John Kerry’s fatuous Paris speech was the moral equivalence he drew between Israeli support for housing construction and Palestinian support for human destruction. In a single sentence, he listed “settlement building” as comparable to “terrorism, violence and incitement” as obstacles to peace. This is not only politically blind, it’s morally blind—confusing conduct that’s deadly and evil with a policy which is, at worst, ill-advised.

This position marks a suitably shameful conclusion to Obama’s disastrous eight years of blunders and retreat in the Middle East.
