      Ketzaleh Dismisses Kerry's Boycott Threats


      Former MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh) dismissed on Sunday the threats of boycotts against Israel that were made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

      "U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that the wealth and prosperity of the Jewish people in Israel are just an illusion," he wrote on his Facebook page. "Kerry threatened that if Israel will not accept a document which means dividing Jerusalem, destroying villages, uprooting hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes and withdrawing to the pre-1967 borders, it will suffer from an economic embargo and sanctions."

      "How unfortunate and painful it is that Kerry found it necessary to say those things about the Jewish people specifically in Germany," added Katz.
