Kerry is So Very...
I can go on.
(Anyone remember those commercials from the 80s?)
Note that בראק אובאמה (Barack Obama) equals נחש (snake) while ג'ון קרי (John Kerry) equals והנחש (and the snake), as in וְהַנָּחָשׁ, הָיָה עָרוּם, מִכֹּל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה. Yes, John Kerry was more cunning than all the beasts of the field.
Note further a recent Yated article which talks about the verse in Yeshaya 49:17:
|יז מִהֲרוּ, בָּנָיִךְ; מְהָרְסַיִךְ וּמַחֲרִיבַיִךְ, מִמֵּךְ יֵצֵאוּ.||17 Thy children make haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth from thee.|
However, over the centuries and millennia, this posuk has come to be understood as a warning against our internal enemies, who are ultimately more dangerous than the external ones with spears, guns, and lately rockets and bombs. Although we generally attribute this plague of meharsayich umacharivayich to our spiritual would-be destroyers from within, such as the Tzedukim, Haskalah, Reform and now Open Orthodoxy, these blood-relative adversaries, the spawn of the prototypical self-hating Jew, George Soros, are now attacking our connection to Yerushalayim and all that is dear to our nation.The reference to the Sefer can be seen here. There are a couple more names listed there. ע"ש.
Rav Dovid Cohen (Maaseh Avos Siman Labonim 1:42; 2: 275) has actually delineated the names of many of these antagonists, and indeed some them have been enemies in ruchniyus and others in gashmiyus. Some of these are Freud, Lenin, Marx, Trotsky and even Tourquemada, the bloody mass murderer of the Spanish Inquisition. Rav Cohen further contends, based upon a ruling of Rav Yaakov Kamenetzky zt”l, that even those who only had a Jewish father and were therefore not halachically Jewish may be included in the appellation of mimeich yeitzei’u. According to this p’sak of Rav Kamenetzky, we must be all the more vigilant in recognizing these threats to Am Yisroel, since they may have “some Jewish blood,” although they are not technically part of the nation.
We also know that John Kerry's paternal grandfather was Jewish. Wikipedia Hebrew has more information:
His grandfather and grandmother on his father's side, Fritz and Ida Kohn, were Jews who grew up in the town of Benešov, Czech Republic (then a part of Austria-Hungary). In 1896, the couple moved to Vienna. And in the year 1900, they decided to change their names to Fredrick and Ida Kerry in order to conceal their Jewish Roots. In 1901, his grandfather officially converted to Catholicism.
See also the New York Times.
So, based on Rav Dovid Cohen's parameters, we can very appropriately apply to John Kerry the verse of מְהָרְסַיִךְ וּמַחֲרִיבַיִךְ, מִמֵּךְ יֵצֵאוּ.
