Secretary of State John Kerry's warning that Israel will become an "apartheid state" unless it enters into a peace deal with the Palestinians is "anti-Semitic rhetoric" that paints Jews as "evil," says Caroline Glick, senior contributing editor of The Jerusalem Post.

"It is a continuation of really a constant drum beat of anti-Semitic rhetoric coming out of the secretary of state. It's true,'' Glick told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"A few months ago he said the Jews — Israelis — are not interested in peace because we're too economically prosperous, you know the old anti-Semitic [line] about Jews of money.''

Glick explained that in no way can Israel be defined as apartheid.

"It's the only country in the Middle East where Arabs have full and equal rights as citizens so the whole thing is just obscene," she said.

"What [Kerry] is saying is that Israelis are inherently evil and that when we are placed in a situation where we have to make a decision we are going to decide on the side of evil.
"That is what he says when he says Israel will become an apartheid state."

Glick believes Kerry is just one of many Obama administration officials with a distaste for Israel.

"I think every single person that Obama has pointed to senior policy positions in his administration; his foreign policy teams, share his hostile view of Israel. Absolutely," she said.

"This is a textbook example of anti-Semitic policy making," Glick later told Newsmax in an e-mail. "It is unconscionable, it is unacceptable and it is unforgivable."

Kerry's gaffe occurred last Friday at a meeting of the Trilateral Commission. In his remarks, which the Daily Beast published on Sunday, Kerry said the breakdown of peace talks between Israel and Palestine could lead to an "apartheid state."

"A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class citizens — or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state," Kerry told a multi-national group. "Once you put that frame in your mind, that reality, which is the bottom line, you understand how imperative it is to get to the two-state solution, which both leaders, even yesterday, said they remain deeply committed to."

Glick blasted Kerry for using the word, which was used to describe the racial segregation that took place in South Africa for almost five decades before ending in 1994.

"To claim that Israel will become an apartheid state is to ascribe latent evil intent to Israel where none exists. This is the basic definition of bigotry generally and of anti-Semitism specifically. There is no Jewish Israeli leader or potential leader that harbors such intentions towards the Palestinians or any other group," said Glick, who penned "The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East."

Glick is a former captain in the Israeli Defense Forces and director of the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Israel Security Project.
