Israeli attacks against US Secretary of State John Kerry accusing him being of a supporter of Hamas are "offensive and absurd," a senior US diplomat said Wednesday.
In a sharp exchange with reporters, deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf hit out against a torrent of abuse from "respected voices in Israel talking about the secretary of state, claiming that he supports Hamas, which is offensive and absurd."
The United States had been given Israel "a level of support which has been quite frankly unprecedented in our history, even when we stood alone," she added.
Kerry has been the subject of ridicule in the Israeli press after his attempts to broker a ceasefire - and US President Barack Obama's heavy pressure on Israel to concede to Hamas's unprecedented demands - deeply offended Israelis living under the constant threat of rocket fire from Hamas.
The secretary of state has been described in the press as a "bull in a china shop," and an "amateur who thinks he can solve the world's problems with his presence alone."

And let’s remember, the Kerrygigololoon is the smartest person in that collection of losers.
Obummer and Kerry: the dynamic duo who turn our friends into enemies and let our enemies run wild.
What an incompetent SOB.What a loser.The truth eats into him like a cancer.
All true, sadly...
He has always reminded me of a muppet!
Ooooh! They criticized our empty suit Secretary of State.
Kerry is offensive and absurd, as is Obama and his so-called foreign policy.
I hate living in the past, but what I wouldn’t give to have the foreign policy of Reagan, Bush 41 or even Bush 43...at least they were unabashedly pro-American.
The Administration’s top priority is pampering Kerry’s hurt feelings.
I suggest that he don a unitard and have more photographs of himself windsurfing to burnish his image. Might be a more effective than press releases about what a Super guy he is. Maybe another botox and orange paint job...
The truth is a cruel dinner.
We could do worse than Kerry-Heinz, but I doubt Benghazi Clinton would take her old job back!
That man needs to sue his plastic surgeon. What a horror - even worse after treatment!
Doesn’t Bibi know he is a war hero with around 25 Purple Hearts and 10 medals of honor in the 2 mos he was in Nam?
Plus all the US Medals that Kerry threw into the Mekong River.
It’s a bitch when you don’t own the press!
John F’n Kerry. The bastard that threw the US “Under the Bus” .... ‘70-71.
He is now Dept of State. Accused of throwing Israel “Under the Bus”.
