Kerry: I don’t believe Israel would hit Iran without consulting us first

US Secretary of State John Kerry sought to calm Israeli worries over an emerging nuclear deal with Iran in an interview aired Sunday, dismissing some concerns as brought on by “hysteria” over the possible agreement.

Speaking to Israel’s Channel 10 television, Kerry said the deal wouldn’t affect American options to counter any possible effort by Iran to build atomic weapons.

He also said he did not believe Israel would surprise the United States by attacking Iran without prior consultation, because of the “huge” potential implications.

“I say to every Israeli that today we have the ability to stop [the Iranians] if they decided to move quickly to a bomb. And I absolutely guarantee that in the future we will have the ability to know what they are doing, so that we can still stop them if they decided to move to a bomb,” Kerry said…

  • Suck it, Kerry.

    The US under Obama has proven it will not help Israel. Israel will have to act on its own to protect itself.

      Kerry is simply appalling.

      • WalterBannon

        Appalling is a gross understatement

        • Kerry is an Obama lackey. Obama is a Muslim.

          Should Israel trust the US with Obama and Kerry?

          The only thing you can trust Obama to do is play the Muslim card. And Kerry will be “yes, yes, yes”.

      • None will be more shocked than he when Israel moves without his permission.

    Ya sure lurch. They’ll tell you so iran can get the heads from you, that is if you don’t strike Israel first.

  • Hard Little Machine

    You are a fucking moron, John. You are dumber than shit.

    • barryjr

      Basically my sentiments exactly. I wouldn’t accuse him of lying because he isn’t smart enough to know the truth.

  • David Murrell

    If Israel were to consult with the US first, the quislings Kerry and Obama would tip Iran off as to the time and place. Democracies are the enemy with these two; Islamist dictatorships are Obama and Kerry’s friend. j

      Which is why Israel should fake them out a la D-day.

  • Clausewitz

    With the US’s history since the imposition of the Obama regime, you’ll be the last to know Lurch.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    In the army we had a saying (No names, no pack drill). I hope Israel practices it.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    How far into the future will Kerry know what Iran is doing? Did anyone ask him how effective were our efforts to stop North Korea from building the bomb? And did anyone ask him if having in-laws living in Iran amounted to a conflict of interest?

  • WalterBannon

    John Kerry is an idiot and an anti-Semite

    Everyone on the planet should boycott Heinz products until his gold digger wife divorces him for bankrupting her prize winnings.

    Oh I don’t know John, youall seem to like surprises given how many Bister Omama has showered on Israel. (One Jerusalem, 67 borders, Power, Malley, the blame game, I could go on and on for lots!)

    I’ll have Netty get back to you on this.

    Since his boss has a habit of releasing that sort of top secret information to Israel’s enemies, it’s not likely Israel will let them know in advance. But it’s good to keep old Lurch and Barry guessing.

  • dukestreet

    I believe that the Obama administration has shown from it’s beginning that it is not interested in Israel except for the occasional comment which does not jiive with anything else the administration does or says. Israel will act on it’s own and not tell the WH in advance. The chances that the WH would warn Iran of the plans Israel has in advance are high.

    Better to just act and tell the US afterwards that Obama’s own attitude and actions aree the reason therywere not informed.

    • Frau Katze

      It’s pretty stupid.

  • ntt1

    So an incompetent buffoon gives his assurances …based on what? his experience?
