Kerry’s Boycott Threat Slammed as ‘Classic Anti-Semitism’
A leader of the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) has harshly criticized United States Secretary of State John Kerry for his declaration that Israel could face international boycotts if it does not succeed in making peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Kerry’s boycott threat shows that he has bought into anti-Semitic thinking regarding Jews and Jewish motives, said Yesha Council official Adi Mintz.
“Until now, I thought that Kerry just didn’t understand the Middle East, that he was deluded, obsessive and messianic,” Mintz began, in a post to his Facebook page.
