Senator John Kerry on Israel-Syria Negotiations

Senator John Kerry today reacted to the public acknowledgment by Israel and Syria that they are engaged through Turkey on negotiations aimed towards reaching a comprehensive peace agreement.

"The United States should heed the public acknowledgment by Israel and Syria that they are engaged through Turkey on negotiations designed to reach a comprehensive peace agreement as a wakeup call. What did the leaders of Israel, already engaged in negotiations with Syria, think when President Bush stood before the Israeli Knesset and invoked Hitler in labeling engagement with rogue nations ‘appeasement?'"

Senator McCain parroted his response, and adopted Bush's failed polices for his own political ends. James Cunningham - nominated as Ambassador to Israel - recently acknowledged the Administration's dismissive approach to these talks.

"It is one thing for the Administration to pursue its own misguided and failed approach of trying to ignore Syria, it's entirely another to discourage Israel from pursuing peace. If the Administration and John McCain are serious about supporting our ally Israel, they should immediately reverse course and make clear that America stands ready to help move the peace process forward, including by engaging with Syria."
