Kerry for Kerry

וַהֲלַכְתֶּם עִמִּי, קֶרִי. .. וְהָלַכְתִּי אַף-אֲנִי עִמָּכֶם, בְּקֶרִי

"If you walk in a sinister manner with Me, then I shall walk in a sinister manner with you" (Leviticus 26: 23-24).

Hashem tells us in the above passage, as He says in many other places in the Torah, that He runs the world - and especially Israel and the Jewish People - on a measure-for-measure basis.

The word in Hebrew for sinister is kerry - it also means rebellious or spiritually impure.

The prophecy in the above passage is amazing - let's now translate it with its alternative definitions:

"If you walk in a rebellious manner with Me, then I shall walk with Kerry toward you."

US Secretary of State Kerry has now become this generation's Neville Chamberlain by caving into Iran. The USA's appeasement of the Ayatolla's, as manifest in the agreement signed yesterday is ever so remindful of the UK's appeasement of Hitler in 1938.

Yet, who made the deal with Iran? Kerry? No! Hashem made the deal, for everything comes from Him, as the Rambam reiterates in the first of our Thirteen Principles of Faith.

The current Israeli Government has become the most vehemently anti-Torah government in modern Israel's 65-year history; without a doubt, the coalition has been walking in a rebellious and impure (kerry in Hebrew) manner with Hashem. So measure-for-measure, they received Kerry in return, along with his ridiculous agreement that enables Iran to continue with its nuclear program, as well as his demands for unilateral concessions to the Palestinians. The Israeli Government gave Hashem kerry, and Kerry in return.

It's high time for all of us to wake up.

While I appreciate your analysis of this situation, please also be sensitive to different cultures. There are many fine young women in former British colonies with "Kerry" as their first name. I know a number of them and they are decent human beings, who love HaShem and treat others very well, and respect their fellow man. "Kerry" is also an Irish word which means "black" or of "Ciar's people" or of the County of Kerry in Ireland. You make it seem as if it is a crime to have this name. I think the name is a beautiful one. It is unfortunate that it would mean something bad in the Hebrew language.


I thought that Kerry meant "accidental" or "happenstance". That would me if we walk in a manner where we look at the world as happenstance, then HaShem will simply let accidental things "happen" to us.


it's not about the name Kerry. it's about the man who just so happens to have the name Kerry, that was given to us, by HaShem.

it could have been a man with any other name, but it HAD to be Kerry.


Now try to find where in Tanach you can "stick" the word "Obuma".
