John Kerry's disgracefully biased attack on "settlements"

John Kerry gave an unsurprisingly dismal speech about the oh-so problematic "settlements" in Israel, to which Benjamin Netanyahu had a suitable response:
Kerry claimed an historically right-wing government in Israel is pushing their nation toward annexation of the West Bank, intentionally eroding the viability of a Palestinian state through its settlement enterprise with the goal of creating a "permanent one-state reality."

Shortly after the conclusion of the speech, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Kerry's focus on Israeli settlements as obsessive, saying his "biased" comments ignored the "root of the conflict."

"For more than an hour, Kerry obsessed over the issue of settlements and hardly touched on the root of the conflict - Palestinian resistance to a Jewish state within any borders," the premier said.
What Kerry's doing is downright sick. And the Israeli government has never been solely right-wing. There were left-wing governments before, and by the end of the century, they'd reached the bottom of the barrel. For now, Kerry's proven he has no genuine concern for any of the real/challenging issues, and only wants to undermine Israel, which he'll surely continue to do even after Obama leaves office.

Update: here's another stunner from Kerry:
Kerry recounted his many visits to Israel, including historic and religious sites, and the Holocaust memorial of Yad Vashem. He said that had sensitized him to the security concerns of ordinary Israelis. But he said that the “fundamental reality” was that “Israel can either be Jewish or it can be democratic, but it cannot be both.”
Absolutely disgusting. He's saying that neither Jewish race or religion are compatible with democracy, even as his own party in the past sought the votes of the Haredi communities like Satmar, which are hardly compatible with Judaism at any rate. Here's an extra item about the response to Kerry's nonsense.

Update 2: Jonathan Tobin asks why Kerry resorted to falsehoods.
