Laughing stock: Israeli settlers publish spoof mocking John Kerry’s peace deal incompetence

Following days of harsh criticism from top Israeli officials over Sec. of State John Kerry’s recent comments during the Middle East peace talks that prompted National Security Advisor Susan Rice to issue a public chastisement about “personal attacks,” a new online video mocking Kerry’s incompetence has been published.

According to 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.”

A woman with an American accent is then seen telling him: “I think you should go home, where you belong, and stay there.”

Kerry’s warning in Munich last weekend that Israel could face an economic boycott if it doesn’t reach a peace agreement with Palestine prompted harsh response from Israeli officials, including one minister to accuse Kerry of “acting as a mouthpiece for anti-Semitic boycott threats.”

Those attacks prompted Rice to issue a series of tweets Monday night, but did not deter the Yesha Council from publishing the spoof video:
