John Kerry makes ‘appalling’ and ‘disgusting’ comments about Israel

While the media obsesses over the racially charges comments made by the Los Angeles Clippers owner, Secretary of State John Kerry has created a firestorm himself.

Supporters of Israel are using words ranging from “not helpful” to “appalling” and “disgusting” in reaction to a Daily Beast report that Kerry, in a closed-door meeting Friday, warned that Israel could become “an apartheid state” if it does not make peace with the Palestinians soon.

In a recording of his remarks obtained by the Daily Beast, Kerry also repeated a threat he has made previously that if the Israeli government does not seal a peace deal soon, there could be a resurgence of Palestinian violence against Israel.

Here are a couple of examples the reactions:

 Appalling. WTF. RT “Exclusive: Kerry Warns Israel Could Become ‘An Apartheid State’” http://t.co/smKKOchMc6 via @thedailybeast — Monica Crowley (@MonicaCrowley) April 28, 2014

 An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman told TheBlaze that the Israeli government did not yet have a specific response to Kerry’s remarks other than referring to a clarification tweet that State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki issued overnight.

The writer of the Daily Beast report responded:

The Blaze notes that the slow response from Israel could be due to the nation marking Holocaust Remembrance Day, a 24-hour commemoration filled with nationwide memorial ceremonies and the sounding of air raid sirens bringing traffic to a stop in memory of those killed by the Nazis during World War II.
