Secretary of State John Kerry has said he chose the wrong word in describing Israel´s potential future after being criticised for saying the Jewish state could become an ´apartheid state´ if it does not reach a peace deal with the Palestinians. In a statement released yesterday by the State Department, Kerry lashed out against ´partisan political´ attacks against him, but acknowledged his comments last week to a closed international forum could have been misinterpreted. He pointedly did not apologize for the remarks, but stressed he was, and is, a strong supporter of Israel, which he called a ´vibrant democracy.´

Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hey John! The LA Clippers are for sale. How about buying them, tomatoman?
“Let me be crystal clear. Even though I believe Israel is becoming an apartheid state, I don’t believe Israel is becoming an apartheid state.”
Did you know that John effin’ Kerry was in Vietnam?
In a nut shell, that word describes the obama gang's view of Israel.
Just like they see “white America” as having been an evil force in the world.
If tomatoes are a fruit,how come ketchup isn’t smoothie?f
Once a traitor, always a traitor
Just another super rich Democrat who thinks that he is above everyone and his words don’t matter. We just don’t understand his intellect. The Kerry peace talks are dead.
Israel, where Moslems, Christians and Jews can all live, vote, and hold office is “becoming an apartheid state.:
But Arab and Moslem countries where Christians are regularly attacked and oppressed, and Jews are pretty much non-existent, are not.
This guy should be forced to resign. Perhaps the Senate can move forward a vote of no confidence in the Tomatoman, as it seems both sides of the isle are upset about his crystal-clear statement.
Ted Cruz has asked for Kerry’s resignation.
Hey Johnny! A white boy playing the race card is disgusting. Grow up bubba!
OK and now he should resign and go back to sailing on his tax cheat docked boat
Kerry needs to retire and take up a new hobby. Maybe playing Words with Friends with Alex Baldwin?
Not content to trash just our own country and servicemen, i.e. behavior reminiscent of Genghis Khan, Kerry continues to condemn our strongest allies and praise our enemies.
There is no place for this word in the context of the State of Israel. The term apartheid means apartdifferent, isolatedthe state of the victims of apartheid with which the Jews are all too familiar. The notion that Israel would go down that path, and so face the same condemnation that met South Africa, is unconscionable. The United States should be aggressively asserting that Israel can never be made an apartheid nation while America exists, because America will be with Israel regardless of the status of any diplomatic process," Cruz said in a statement. The fact that Secretary Kerry sees nothing wrong with making such a statement on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day demonstrates a shocking lack of sensitivity to the incendiary and damaging nature of his rhetoric. It is my belief that Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel, he should offer President Obama his resignation and the President should accept it.
