U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry appeared to have flubbed his lines on Thursday, when he referred to areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority as a country, reported AFP.
Speaking at the United Nations ahead of talks with UN chief Ban Ki-moon, Kerry praised the "courageous decision" by Israeli and PA leaders to try to resume direct negotiations.
He then told reporters, "It's my hope that that will be able to happen as procedures are put in place by both countries in order to empower that."
The final status of the areas controlled by the PA has yet to be determined and no Palestinian state has been established.
State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf assured reporters later that U.S. policy had not changed.
"Our position has not changed not on the status of the Palestinian territory. The secretary was in no way indicating a change of policy," she said, according to AFP.
Later asked about his comment, Kerry replied: "Did I say that?"

Looks like there are quite a few, by that cartoon.
As a disclaimer, I don't care whether Kerry is Catholic of Jew. American Jews seem to only pay lip service to Israel... if they do, at all. Look at Rahm Emanuel!
Sounds like something Hitler would do.
