AIPAC: Kerry’s ‘apartheid’ remarks ‘deeply troubling’


The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has said that remarks made by US Secretary of State John Kerry who warned that Israeli regime could become “an apartheid state” are “deeply troubling.”

According to Press TV, in an exclusive report published on Sunday, The Daily Beast said it obtained a recording of remarks made by Kerry during a closed-door Friday meeting in which he lashed out against the Zionist Regime’s illegal settlement-building activities and failure to achieve a peace deal with the Palestinian Authority.

Kerry told a room of senior officials and experts from the US, Western Europe, Russia, and Japan, “A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second class citizens – or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.”

AIPAC, which is the most powerful pro-Zionist Regime lobby group in the US, was quick to react to the report, describing this regime as “the lone stable democracy in the Middle East” while saying any “suggestion that Israel is, or is at risk of becoming, an apartheid state is offensive and inappropriate.”

The pro-Israel lobby group said in a statement, “The reported remarks on apartheid by Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday are deeply troubling.”
