John Kerry Is Right: Americans Must Finally Accept The Two State Solution

(This post first appeared in Jewish Business News.)

Yesterday America’s Secretary of State John Kerry gave a passionate speech on the state of the world’s longest running and most volatile conflict. In what people have described as his valedictory address, Kerry called for an end to settlements and the need for all parties to accept the two state solution.

He even came out in favor of the division of the capital city.

John Kerry is right? The two state solution is necessary. America cannot be a democracy and the American State at the same time. It must choose one or the other.

So the real America, the one in the more rural parts of the country which overwhelmingly voted for Trump, must separate from the urban centers which voted for Clinton.

Trumpers must acknowledge the right of Clintonites to self-determination. The time has come for this. In fact it came long ago. Never mind that they have allowed themselves to be governed by a Democrat for the last eight years. Forget the fact that all Blues who are American citizens have the right to vote. This was all just a subterfuge and was never really meant to be honest moves for peace by the Reddies.

Even their recent withdrawals from Nevada and Virginia were just attempts at misdirection, leaving these areas behind as nothing more than big jails.

The Blues still must suffer under an occupation. Whole cities like Chicago and Los Angeles have been surrounded by Red settlements like Orange County and Indiana. How will they ever be able to have a state of their own when these settlements prevent them from having contiguity?

And just look at America’s map these days. Thousands of square miles of Red territories in the middle separate the Blue on the coasts. Idaho, Montana, The Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas – all red.

The 2016 elections proved that the long held policies of the Reddies have actually been to transform as much of America Red as possible. Even as their leaders speak of acknowledging the right of the Blues to have their own state, they have continued in their colonial policies, turning once Blue States like Pennsylvania and Michigan Red.

How much longer can the Blue States be forced to suffer domination at the hands of the Red States. And as more and more Reddies settle in Blue areas they are creating facts on the ground, turning blue to purple. This will make an eventual two state solution impossible.

They must end the settlement activity. Fox News should relocate its headquarters from New York to Des Moines. The entire Trump family should leave the city and Trump Tower should be renamed for Bernie Sanders.

And most importantly, the Reddies must acknowledge that Washington D.C. does not belong to them alone. It is the historic capital for the Blues too. It is therefore really two capitals for two peoples.

The Reddies must stop with their efforts to create facts on the ground in Washington to prevent Blues from also having the city. The opening of the new Trump hotel there was just the latest in a long line of steps made to keep Blues from their claims to the city.

The recent renovations of the Washington Monument and the additions of new monuments in the city were inexcusable violations of the status quo.

John Kerry was absolutely right. The Red apologists who condemned his speech are nothing more than a bunch of racists who do not really believe in Democracy. We must act now to separate these two peoples from one another for the sake of world peace. The window for action is closing.

When Donald Trump becomes President he will have to take swift action to settle this conflict once and for all. He can either show that he is a brave leader like Yitzhak Rabin and Charles de Gaulle who also faced such challenges. Or he can let the situation deteriorate until it leads to World War III.

    John Kerry is an idiot; period! Anyone that believes there should be 2 states has to be living in fantasy land! If the Philistines(because there’s no such thing as a Palestinian) were to secure their own independent state, it would allow them to build a military; wouldn’t that be fun for the world?! The Philistines would never be satisfied with any border agreements. That would mean with a new army courtesy of kerry and the u.n., there would be more attacks with updated iranian weapons. Yeah the world would be a whole lot safer with more muslims getting their hands on military equipment. Just look how safe the world is now!

    Right on! Before Kerry goes on and on about “two-state” solutions in Israel, he should take good, long, hard look at what is going on in his own backyard.

    The American people have never been more polarized or more angry. The divide between the haves and the have-nots has not been this wide since the Great Depression of the 1930’s, and with the swearing in of the new “administration”, you can bet it will get significantly wider.

    The ability to have anything that even remotely resembles civil discourse in the U.S. is now a thing of the past. Instead of discussing differences, people shriek insults and accusations at those whose political view differs from theirs in even the slightest way (this is true on both the DNC and GOP sides of the spectrum).

    Race relations have not been at this bad since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s, and that will also get worse come January 20th. Don’t even get me started on the rising wave of anti-Jewish rhetoric and behavior in America, particularly against Jewish journalists, even though Trump’s own son-in-law and daughter are Jews.

    It’s all falling apart, and it’s not going to get better. There may be a World War III, but don’t be surprised if there is also a U.S. Civil War, Part II.

    Trumps new Government is geared up for war,Trump is just taking over the mess left behind by the Democrats,his new Secretary of Defence if he gets elected “mad dog” j.mattis has contributed to books I WARN ISRAEL HE REALLY IS THE ONE TO WATCH VERY CLOSELY if he gets to be secretary of defence,he has his own personal war with Iran and has indicated he wants Iran dealt with…and that means only one thing,I really fear those rockets Iran own in Lebanon because if trigger happy “mad dog” mattis gets his way Lebanon will fire more rockets at Israel than the 2006 Lebanon war…I hope Netanyahu knows how to deal with Lebanon swiftly….

    Here goes! In March 2013 j.mattis was called to TESTIFY to the Senate armed services committee as Commander of United states Central Command,apperntly according to press sources at that time he quoted the following
    1.Iran is enriching uranium beyond any plausible peacefull purpose.
    2.Stated current sanctions and diplomatic efforts to stop Iran from gaining nuclear capability are not working
    Obamas administration did not trust mattis because he was perceived to be to eager for military confritation with Iran.J.Mattis was nominated on July 21st 2010 to become commander of united states central command

    Neverthless,in Flynn,trump has found someone who clearly shares his penchant for indulging in dog-whistle rhetoric.he once infamously tweeted “Fear of muslims is RATIONAL” No surprise,he also boasts ties to some of the more unhinged elements of the neoconservative movement like the author Michael Leeden.quote “in other words we must wage global war for peace”
