In John Kerry’s speech to the Anti-Defamation League, he went into detail about his first trip to Israel:
Rather than dwell on the uncertainties of the present, Kerry devoted much of his talk to personal reminiscence. In animated tones, he spoke of his first visit to Israel, which he said was under the auspices of the ADL and the late Leonard P. “Lenny” Zakim, longtime director of the group’s New England chapter. Kerry said he went to the Golan Heights, visited the Sea of Galilee and “actually stood on the Mount of the Beatitudes and read the Sermon on the Mount to those gathered with me.”
Maybe that’s why he’s so keen on receiving the Eucharist. He thinks he is Jesus.
