UNITED NATIONS ON PALESTINE: Url.: http://tinyurl.com/2f8f7 PUBLISHED ON FRIDAY, JULY 2, 2004 BY THE BOSTON GLOBE: KERRY TAKES A STRONGER PRO-ISRAEL LINE by Bryan Bender WASHINGTON -- Senator John F. Kerry strikes a decidedly stronger pro-Israel position in a new policy paper than he did a few months ago, as he attempts to enlist the support of Jewish voters who have been gravitating to President Bush and away from their tradition of voting Democratic in presidential elections. In the policy paper, which has not been released publicly, Kerry outlines clear, strongly worded positions on several issues important to the American Jewish community. He calls for more forceful action to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons, fully backs Israel's construction of a 425-mile- long barrier between Israel and the Palestinian territories that the paper refers to as ''a security fence," and pledges to work to push for a new Palestinian political class to replace Yasser Arafat, who is called a ''failed leader". [ HR+ARAFAT: http://tinyurl.com/35p59 ] Earlier in the campaign, Kerry got off to a shaky start with some Jewish groups. Last October he called the barrier - composed mostly of electronic fencing with razor wire and a ditch along a tracking road but with some stretches made of concrete - a: ''barrier to peace." [http://tinyurl.com/2ytsj] The NEW paper says building it is ''a legitimate right of self-defense" and ''not a matter" to be taken up by the International Court of Justice, which has criticized the move. [ http://tinyurl.com/ywtzv ] On Wednesday, Israel's High Court of Justice, responding to Palestinian complaints, issued a landmark ruling saying a planned 20-mile section of the barrier in the West Bank must be rerouted, because the current path creates hardships for thousands of Palestinians. The Massachusetts senator earlier remarked that he might appoint James A. Baker III, secretary of state in the first Bush administration, a special peace negotiator. Jewish groups quickly attacked the proposal and accused Baker of making anti-Israel statements. The paper, drafted by policy and political advisers, does not say who Kerry would pick for that role. With the paper, titled ''Strengthening Israel's Security and Bolstering the US-Israel Special Relationship," Kerry is attempting to reintroduce himself to Jewish voters. ''John Kerry has been at the forefront of the fight for Israel's security during his 19 years in the US Senate," it says: ''His pro-Israel voting record is second to none." Republicans suggested some political desperation was behind the document. ''There is a key battle for the Jewish vote underway," said Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, based in Washington. ''Democrats are particularly scared. This underscores the efforts they have to make to hold on to what was a sure part of their base. The reason for their efforts is this president is going to do substantially better than he did in 2000. That has them worried." Traditionally, the overwhelming majority of Jewish voters have backed the Democratic nominee for the White House; in 2000, 19 percent went for President Bush. The Bush-Cheney campaign is hoping to capitalize on the president's strong support for the Israeli government, the military removal of Saddam Hussein, and the pursuit of the war on terrorism to increase that support to 30 percent or more in November. In a closely contested election, those voters could prove critical in swing states such as Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. Some Jewish leaders say that Kerry's record on Israel is not well known outside Washington and Massachusetts.

Καλά καλά! Το πιστεύουμε. Δεν υπάρχει αμφιβολία ότι είναι και αυτός μαλάκας. Δε χρειάζονται τόσα στοιχεία. Μόνο που πάει για πρόεδρος των ΗΠΑ φτάνει.

So, tell us what 'schul' you escaped from? Or who pays you to write in an offensive way ? If you open your eyes and see how Bush and his 'cabal' from Jerusalem has wrecked a big part of the world we others live in ('the chosen people' too) you might wake up. At present - and according to 96% of the world, the present US and Israeli governments are the worst terrorists in the world. I'm looking forward to see all of those warcriminals like Ken Lay (the Enron swindler) in handcuffs on their perk top Court. Hard to understand how anybody can defend those criminals, if you see what kind of Massada they are preparing. And with Kerry: the tail that wagged the dog now becomes the dog...
