Kerry is reluctant 'star' of Israeli settlers' spoof

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry waves while boarding his plane at Franz-Josef-Strauss Airport in MunichBy Maayan Lubell JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Trying humor over hectoring, Israeli ultra-nationalists have lampooned U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in a video campaign against his troubled quest for peace between the Jewish state and the Palestinians. The two-minute-long YouTube clip features an actor playing a buffoonish Kerry as he tours the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, areas where Palestinians seek statehood but which Israel sees as a Jewish birthright and security buffer. The spoof followed harder criticism of the top U.S. diplomat from within Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightist government. In the Jordan Valley – the proposed eastern border of the future Palestine, where Israel insists on keeping its own troops – “Kerry” offers assurances by suggesting armed infiltrators can be photographed and shamed on social media.
