British Prime Minister Theresa May just slammed Secretary of State John Kerry for his controversial speech in which he criticized Israel for building settlements in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
According to NBC News, a spokesperson for May announced that Kerry missed the mark during his 70-minute anti-Israel speech.
May said that while Kerry only focused on Israel’s settlements, other more important problems were not addressed.
However, the U.K. did align itself with the U.S. in the United Nations resolutions that demanded an end to Israeli settlement building. While that might be the case, the U.K. made sure to let Kerry know they were not happy with his speech.
“We do not … believe that the way to negotiate peace is by focusing on only one issue,” the British Prime Minister’s spokesperson said. “And we do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically elected government of an ally.”
“We are surprised by the U.K. Prime Minister’s office statement,” the State Department said, arguing that Kerry’s remarks “were in line with the U.K.’s own longstanding policy and its vote at the United Nations.”
The Post called the speech “long” and “condescending” and blamed an “Israel-bashing” Obama administration for the chaos.
It seems as if even President Barack Obama’s own supporters can’t agree with the way he treats his allies.
