The Jewish roots and Middle East views of Obama’s pick for top diplomat

Two of John Kerry’s grandparents were Jewish and his brother Cameron converted to the faith; he is a frequent visitor to Israel who opposes settlements and insists the president will stop Iran

US Sen. John Kerry, President Barack Obama’s anticipated nominee to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, is a frequent visitor to Israel, with a strong pro-Israel voting record, who last spring assured Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem that they need have “no doubt” about Obama’s determination to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Kerry has been a staunch defender of Obama’s stance on Iran, and last March denounced the unsuccessful Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for taking overly aggressive positions on the Iranian nuclear threat. After Romney published an op-ed slamming Obama’s “feckless” approach, Kerry stormed that, “Talk has consequences, and idle talk of war only helps Iran by spooking the tight oil market and increasing the price of the Iranian crude that pays for its nuclear program.”

The chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Kerry has also been a strong critic of Israeli settlement expansion and of Israeli restrictions on supplies going into Gaza.

While he is a Catholic, two of Kerry’s grandparents were Jewish. He found out more than 20 years ago that his paternal grandmother was Jewish, but only learned during his failed 2004 presidential campaign that his paternal grandfather was also Jewish.

A genealogist hired by the Boston Globe established that Kerry’s grandfather Frederick was born to a Jewish family in a small town in the Czech Republic. ”This is incredible stuff,” Kerry told the Globe. “I think it is more than interesting. It is a revelation.”

Frederick Kerry was born as Fritz Kohn, changed his name to Kerry in 1902, immigrated to the United States in 1905 — and committed suicide in a Boston hotel in 1921.

Before the family learned of its Jewish heritage, Kerry’s brother Cameron in 1983 converted to Judaism, and married an Orthodox Jewish woman. Cameron, too, has visited Israel and he campaigned in the Jewish community on behalf of his brother in 2004, discussing John’s views on Israel, and appearing along with Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz, writer-comedian Larry David, and other Jewish elected officials.

Cameron Kerry said at the time that his brother often joined his family for Shabbat dinner, though the senator had never come to a family Passover seder.

On his last visit to Israel last spring, John Kerry told Peres of Obama’s determination to thwart Iran, “If I can just say to you and to the people of Israel: I hope there is no doubt about President Obama’s seriousness and commitment that Iran should not have and cannot have a nuclear weapon.” He added: “The president has made it clear that he is not talking about containment, he is talking about prevention.”

At the Democratic Party convention last fall, Kerry quoted Netanyahu praising the Obama administration in a bid to show that Republicans have “lied” about the president and Israel.

“Barack Obama promised always to stand with Israel to tighten sanctions on Iran — and take nothing off the table,” Kerry declared. ”Again and again, the other side has lied about where this president stands and what this president has done.”

But, he went on, “Prime Minister Netanyahu set the record straight — he said our two countries have ‘exactly the same policy … our security cooperation is unprecedented’ … When it comes to Israel, I’ll take the word of Israel’s prime minister over Mitt Romney any day.”

On Middle East affairs, Kerry has frequently urged rapid progress toward a two-state solution, penalties for settlement expansion and, until the deepening of civil war, engagement with Syria.

In 2009, not long after Obama took office, he said in a speech that, “The Obama administration presents an extraordinary opportunity for a new beginning where America reclaims the role of an active and creative agent for peace.”

Addressing the Saban Center of the Brookings Institution, he urged a direct US role in Israel-Syria talks, and said negotiations could be nudged along by loosening sanctions against Syria. ”Loosening certain sanctions in return for verifiable changes in behavior could actually benefit US businesses, and the sanctions can always be tightened again if Syria backtracks,” he said.

On West Bank settlements, Kerry said in the same address that US policy opposing expansion for decades has “existed on paper alone.”

“Nothing will do more to make clear our seriousness about turning the page than demonstrating — with actions rather than words — that we are serious about Israel freezing settlement activity in the West Bank,” Kerry said.

He was critical as well of Israeli limitations on humanitarian relief into Gaza following the previous winter’s Operation Cast Lead. Kerry was reported to have intervened personally to allow in truckloads of pasta after Israeli bureaucrats had determined that rice was satisfactory relief.

“I raised this with our Israeli friends,” he said. “We need to broaden the definition of what is able to go in as a matter of Palestinian aid.”

In the address he also said getting Iran to end its suspected nuclear program was a priority; Hamas participation in any process was still stringently contingent on recognizing Israel and ending terrorism; Arab nations must play a role in suppressing Hamas’s influence and stopping the flow of arms into the Gaza Strip; the United States would continue to guarantee Israel’s security.

Having just returned from a visit to the region, Kerry said he learned in his meetings with leaders of Arab nations that they had replaced the infamous “three noes” of the 1968 Khartoum conference, which counted out any dealings with Israel, with three new “noes”: “No Iranian nukes, no Iranian meddling and no Iranian hegemony.”

He also swatted down a questioner who suggested Israel de-nuke in parallel with Iran. Kerry said the Arab leaders with whom he met did not even mention Israel’s nuclear capacity.







Newfound Jewish roots gave Kerry a ‘deep’ bond with Israel

Secretary of state, who only learned his grandparents were Jews in 2004, says he understands Israelis’ reluctance to sign a deal

February 20, 2014



US Secretary of State John Kerry says his feelings toward Israel changed 10 years ago, after he found out that that he had Jewish grandparents.

“It’s a connection that’s deep. I lost a great-uncle in the Holocaust and a great-aunt. I never knew that until then. To learn that, after years of being passionate about ‘never again,’ with respect to the Holocaust, and then to understand that you are biologically and personally connected to that, is very moving,” he said in an interview aired on Thursday by Israel’s Channel 2.

“Israel itself has a special connection to me, not just because of that personal, now-known connection, but more importantly because of the amazing journey of the Jewish people,” he said in the interview, which was conducted last Tuesday at the State Department. “And now I’ve learned that, I have got a better sense of that.”

Kerry first found out about his Jewish ancestry in 2004, when he was running for president against George W. Bush. Both his father’s parents were born Jews and converted to Christianity because of anti-Semitism, and they changed their name from Cohen to Kerry when they immigrated to the United States.

Asked by the interviewer, Ilana Dayan, whether he felt that Israelis were still defined by their tragedies to the extent that those events made them hesitant to take the “leap of faith” necessary to withdraw from the West Bank and agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state, Kerry answered in the affirmative.

“But,” he added, “here is what I want to emphasize: I think my job is to try to help create a situation where the realities of the agreement are such that it’s not such a leap of faith. I don’t want this to be a leap of faith. I want this to be a leap of reason. A leap of rationality and of choice, based on a very understandable and tangible set of guaranties about security and other things.”

If that could be achieved, Kerry continued, “then we take some of the emotion away… even though it will be for some always a huge emotion, because some people have very different views about greater Judea and Samaria — I know all of that. But I also know that over 70 percent of the people of Israel believe in a two-state solution.”

The secretary of state said that he sometimes spends hours on the phone with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and understands him. But he was hesitant to say whether he believes Netanyahu would agree to the kind of concessions a peace agreement would require. “If we’ve answered all of the challenges of security for Israel, if he has secured the nation state of Israel as the home of the Jewish people, if he has secured recognition and secured the refugee issue — properly dissolved — I hope he will,” Kerry said.

Netanyahu’s primary concern is the security of Israeli civilians, Kerry stressed. “I have said this to [Palestinian Authority] President [Mahmoud] Abbas: The primary issue for any Israeli is to know that if they make an agreement, they are safer and stronger because of the agreement than they were before they made it. And that goes contrary to past experience in pulling out of Lebanon and pulling out of Gaza.”

Kerry hinted that settlers might not have to relocate under the terms of a peace deal. Asked about the personal price that a settler might have to pay when required to leave his home as a result of an accord, Kerry replied that he was not sure this would be necessary.

“I have no argument with anyone in Israel who says that no deal is better than a bad deal. I say that myself,” he said. “I’m not in the business of trying to put together a bad deal.”

Kerry dismissed criticism of him from right-wing Israeli politicians, particularly Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, who said the top US diplomat was “messianic and obsessive.”

“You know, those are judgments that other people may or may not have fun making in this process. I’m doing my job,” he said. Kerry claimed he was not insulted by Ya’alon’s remarks. “I think I am committed, and I’m determined.”

The secretary of state declined to comment on his gut reaction in January to Yedioth Ahronoth’s publication of Ya’alon’s scathing criticism, which targeted the US mediation of the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

“That’s not the way I operate. I’m an optimist and I am a believer in possibilities,” he said. “People who know me know that when I sink my teeth into something, if I get the bit between my teeth, I try to get it done.”

When Kerry was Kohn: The Jewish roots of John Kerry


The headline is taken from a Haaretz article (21.12.2012). John Kerry is about to become the latest in a string of ethnically Jewish top cabinet secretaries over the past few decades. The list of Jewish and half-Jewish Secretaries is printed below. It is not necessarily exhaustive, as some have not necessarily been that forthcoming about their ancestry. Madeline Albright would have very happily finished her career without being identified as a Jew and reacted with surprise when it was revealed during her tenure as Secretary of State that at least three of her grandparents were Jewish. Keep in mind that as a young child she fled Czechoslovakia with her family after the Munich Pact turned the country into an effective dominion of Hitler’s Germany. As for Kerry, he reportedly only found out about his Jewish grandmother in 1994 and his Jewish grandfather in 2003. Still, he has often stated that although he has an Irish surname he never claimed to be Irish. So what did he think he was? He has certainly been consistently Zionist. Here is the list of positive confirmations.

Secretaries of State:
Henry Kissinger
Madeline Albright

Secretries of Defense:
Caspar Weinberger
Harold Brown
William Cohen
James R. Schlesinger

Secretaries of Treasury:
Werner M. Blumenthal
Robert Rubin
Lawrence Summers

Other recent Treasury Secretaries including Bill Simon, Henry Paulson, and Tim Geitner have been reported to be Jewish, although it is very difficult to get conclusive evidence one way or the other. The long history of crypto-Jews and the fact that being able to operate in Jewish interests without being identified as Jewish has been an important weapon in the Jewish arsenal makes the issue of these individuals’ ethnicity more than just a trivial matter. Now, here is the article about Kerry’s Jewish roots from the Times of Israel.


Addendum by Radio Islam:
In Feb 2013 John Kerry entered the influential role as the new U.S. Secretary of State.




“US” Secretary of State Kerry-Cohen and Family: “We are Jews”



The “American” Secretary of State, John “Kerry” Cohen and his brother have both come out publicly to affirm that are in fact Jews and therefore cannot be anti-Semitic or anti-Israel, as some right wing Zionist extremists have alleged.

kerry-and-netanyahu


Responding to allegations by members of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet who accused Kerry of endorsing “anti-Semitic” efforts to impose sanctions on Israel when he voiced concern that failure to reach a peace accord with the Palestinians could lead to economic boycotts, Kerry-Cohen made his latest remarks in an interview aired on Thursday by Israel’s Channel 2.

According to Kerry-Cohen, his feelings toward Israel changed ten years ago, after he found out that his family was actually Jewish.

“It’s a connection that’s deep,” he said. “Israel itself has a special connection to me, not just because of that personal, now-known connection, but more importantly because of the amazing journey of the Jewish people. And now I’ve learned that, I have got a better sense of that.”

Kerry claimed that he first found out about his Jewish ancestry in 2004, when he was running for president against George W. Bush.

Both his father’s parents were born Jews and converted to Christianity because of alleged “anti-Semitism,” and they changed their name from Cohen to Kerry when they immigrated to the United States.

His comments were echoed by his brother, Cameron Kerry-Cohen wrote publicly about the family’s Jewish roots in a column in Israel’s largest circulation daily newspaper, Yediot.

Cameron Kerry-Cohen married a Jewish woman and he and his family are practicing Jews.

“There is no truth and no good that can come by calling into question John Kerry’s good faith toward his own heritage,” Cameron Kerry-Cohen concluded in his column, a translation of which was posted on the U.S. Embassy’s Facebook page. “Israel and the Jewish people deserve better than that.”

It is important to understand that the allegations against Kerry-Cohen are being made by ultra-extremist right wing Zionists, who are upset that the more “moderate” Zionist Supremacists want to slightly soften their public image.

This policy shift is supported not because it is in anyone else’s interests, but only because they believe it best supports the racist state of Israel’s case.

In other words, this “conflict” is only between an extreme set of people who are in dispute with an even more extreme group—while their common ideal—Jewish Supremacism—is never under question.

This can be seen from Kerry-Cohen’s pronouncements on Israel, contained in the Israeli Channel 2 broadcast.

During that show, he said that he sometimes spends “hours on the phone with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and understands him.”

“If we’ve answered all of the challenges of security for Israel, if he has secured the nation state of Israel as the home of the Jewish people, if he has secured recognition and secured the refugee issue — properly dissolved — I hope he will [agree to peace],” Kerry-Cohen said, referring to Netanyahu’s stance on peace discussions.

Note however, that the demand for a Jews-only state is always first and foremost at the demands of both the “moderate” and “extreme” Zionist Supremacists—in other words, their core policy remains identical.
