Top repbulcian slams Kerry's apartheid remark

A senior republican in Congress criticized Secretary of State John Kerry for reportedly saying Israel could become an apartheid state if it doesn't reach a peace deal with the Palestinians.

 

House Republican leader Eric Cantor said "reports that Secretary Kerry has suggested Israel is becoming an apartheid state are extremely disappointing," Fox reported

 

Cantor, who is Jewish, said in a statement. "The use of the word apartheid has routinely been dismissed as both offensive and inaccurate," He urged Kerry to "apologize to the Israeli government and people." (AP)
