Krauthammer: Kerry’s Reported Israel ‘Apartheid’ Remark ‘A Resigning-Type Statement’
A “Special Report” panel this evening discussed Secretary of State John Kerry’s reported statement that Israel could become an apartheid state.

"Reports that Secretary Kerry has suggested Israel is becoming an apartheid state are extremely disappointing," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, said in a statement. "The use of the word apartheid has routinely been dismissed as both offensive and inaccurate, and Secretary Kerry's use of it makes peace even harder to achieve."
The Virginia congressman also urged Kerry to "apologize to the Israeli government and people."
Late Monday Sen. Barbara Boxer added a bipartisan note to the criticism, tweeting, "Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and any linkage between Israel and apartheid is nonsensical and ridiculous."
Charles Krauthammer responded to Boxer’s tweet, saying, “Well, it’s beyond nonsense. It’s pernicious and extremely harmful.”
Krauthammer called Kerry’s reported remarks a “resigning-type statement.”
Krauthammer also touched on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist remarks, saying that Sterling shouldn’t and won’t own the team for much longer.
“I think hopefully this attitude is gonna die over time,” he said, calling racist remarks a generational issue.
