Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took to the House floor to condemn Secretary of State John Kerry's claim yesterday that Israel could become an 'apartheid state':

"Secretary of State John Kerry accused the Jewish people of Israel of risking guilt for the crime of 'Apartheid.' He said that about Israeli Jews who the U.N. unanimously provided a nation after the worst genocide in world history. Secretary Kerry is both ignorant of history and the offense of 'Apartheid.' Our Secretary of State has effectively cursed Israel.

It is not Israel who sent suicide bombers against Palestinians, nor denied the right of Palestinians to work in Israel, nor advocated for completely wiping others off the map, nor taught children in their textbooks to hate others as rats and vermin, nor named landmarks and holidays for murderers using suicide bombs to kill innocents nor launched rockets every day hoping to terrorize and kill innocent people.

It is Israel that has fought against such racism and hatred. Secretary Kerry stands for those who support the destruction of Israel. He should not be speaking for our nation. He must stand down before he brings judgment against him.
