Ahead of Secretary of State John Kerry’s meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, US Senator and presidential contender Ted Cruz gave an interview to The Jerusalem Post in which he issued a scathing rebuke of the Obama administration’s handling of the Palestinian conflict with Israel. Below are highlights of the interview. The full interview will be published Friday.
Senator Cruz, How would you characterize the Obama administration’s stewardship of US relations with the Palestinians?
This past this week I publicly called for John Kerry’s resignation as Secretary of State. This is the second time I’ve done so. A number of months ago I called for Kerry’s resignation when he wrongfully suggested that Israel could become an apartheid state, which is a slander. It is one often repeated by the terrorists and it should not be coming out of the mouth of a United States Secretary of State.
