Sorry to rain on your parade, but your Mulla gave you a bad translation.

From the article you are so excited about -

"We are sympathetic with the crisis that people face on a daily basis here in ISRAEL, from those who chose no other path than to use instruments of terror." - quoting John Kerry, while he stood in front of a pile of used rockets in Sderot.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. consulate said it was thought to be the first visit by a U.S. congressman in four years (not nine) - and, Obama, as Senator of Illinois, was there in 2008.

"He was right here in front of these rockets. He came to Sderot as I have because we feel very deeply that no-one should live under this kind of threat, no children should be raised in that kind of fear." - again, quoting John Kerry in SDEROT.

Thanks for making John Kerry look good - not an easy thing to do.
