Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham H. Foxman responded Monday to reports that US Secretary of State John Kerry used the offensive term “apartheid” to warn what might become of Israel should an agreement not be reached with the Palestinians. 

Kerry reportedly used the term during a closed-door meeting of the Trilateral Commission with European and Asian leaders on Friday. "It is startling and deeply disappointing that a diplomat so knowledgeable and experienced about democratic Israel chose to use such an inaccurate and incendiary term," Foxman said.



"We appreciate Mr. Kerry's deep concern for Israel and his desires to ensure that it have a future of peace and security," he said.

"Even if he used the repugnant language of Israel's adversaries and accusers to express concern for Israel's future, it was undiplomatic, unwise and unfair. Such references are not seen as expressions of friendship and support."
