Gohmert was criticizing Kerry’s remark that Israel could become an apartheid state if it fails to reach a peace accord with the Palestinians. Two former Israeli prime ministers and the current Justice Minister have also warned that Israel risks becoming an apartheid state in the future.
The Texas congressman derided Kerry for his “ignorant” comments and claimed that the secretary of state has “effectively cursed Israel.”
“It’s Israel that has fought against such racism and hatred,” Gohmert said. “Secretary of Kerry stands for those who support the destruction of Israel.
“He should not be speaking for this nation. He needs to stand down before he brings judgment against us.”
Previously, Gohmert warned that America will “be judged and it isn't going to be pretty” if American diplomats broker a two-state solution.
