Washington, D.C. (January 23, 2018) -- The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks on the news that John Kerry is trying to obstruct the Trump Administration’s efforts to facilitate an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, by encouraging PA President Mahmoud Abbas to reject the Trump Administration’s efforts and wait until Trump is out of office.
"John Kerry failed for four years as Secretary of State to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace. Now he wants a second bite of the apple, a bite the American people chose not to give him when they rejected the Obama/Kerry foreign policy in 2016. John Kerry is no longer a representative of the American people and his action - conducting a shadow foreign policy - is reckless and undermines the possibility of achieving peace. The American people chose President Trump, in part, because he promised to pivot away from the failed policies of John Kerry."
