“There is no status quo. It is getting worse,” said Kerry, according to Al Ray, referring to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “It is moving in the wrong direction.”
Kerry, who has described himself as an “unapologetic friend of Israel”, said that Tel Aviv is, nonetheless, “ignoring all our warnings regarding settlements”.
“There is a basic choice that has to be made by Israelis, by the leadership of Israel,” he said, “and that is are there going to be continued settlements, is there going to be a continued implementation of settlement policy, or is there going to be separation and the creation of two states?”
