John Kerry's DNA.....................from Dan Friedman

Editorial of The New York Sun | February 5, 2014
As tempers flare between Israel and America over Secretary of State Kerry, the thing to remember is that he came into public life courtesy of Senator J. William Fulbright. It was Fulbright who, as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, lured the young Mr. Kerry onto Capitol Hill. Fulbright chaired the hearing at which Mr. Kerry, then just back from his brief tour in Vietnam, accused his fellow GIs of committing war crimes in Vietnam in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan. That was the act that set Kerry up for his long climb.

MIDEAST MENTOR: One of Secretary of State Kerry's predecessors as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, J. William Fulbright, was a career-long opponent of Israel who wanted to impose a solution in respect of the Palestinian Arabs.
