US State Department criticizes John Kerry Solutions spoof of peace process
The Yesha Council in cooperation with a group called MyIsrael have been making videos called John Kerry Solutions, Ltd. in which they spoof John Kerry leading the peace process.
John Kerry Solutions, Ltd. has upset the US State Department.
According to The Jerusalem Post,
"I think it goes in with what I’ve already stated about attempts to mischaracterize [Kerry's] record, his position, his positions on issues, his statements, how that is not an attack on him; that’s an attack on the process. And of course that kind of rhetoric we find unacceptable," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesdays during a press briefing.
Psaki responded with evasive light-hardheartedness when mockingly asked by a reporter if Kerry believes that Jerusalem is a holy city to fictional species, referring to a segment of the spoof video in which the mock Kerry says theWestern Wall is holy to all religions, citing "Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Klingons and Hobbits."
While avoiding a direct response, Psaki interjected her own feelings on the extraterrestrial humanoid warrior species from the science fiction show Star Treck.
"I love Klingons," Psaki said during the exchange.

1. It must be an effective campaign if the State Department took notice.
2. #1 is surprising in light of the fact that Yesha Council is involved.
3. The State Department should really not bother commenting on a video that is just parody and is not connected to the government or represent any governmental position.
