‘John Kerry is Simply Not Telling the Truth’: Conservatives Rail Against Kerry’s Speech on Israel

kerry-un-israeleditedSecretary of State John Kerry delivered an impassioned speech today at the State Department regarding the recent decision by the United States to abstain in the United Nations Security Council resolution vote on Israeli settlements.

Kerry explained during the speech that the resolution is about preserving a two-state solution between the Israelis and Palestinians, stating that the solution is now in “serious jeopardy.” He further noted that no American administration had done more for Israel and its security than Barack Obama’s. Kerry also added that the US did coordinate with the Security Council on the resolution, confirming much of Israeli accusations against the administration.

As one would expect, especially since this is such a hot-button issue that divides typically divides conservatives and liberals, a number of conservative pundits, writers and media figures took to Twitter to express their disdain for Kerry’s speech.

Right away, Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough accused Kerry of lying while bringing up the Iran Deal (another sore spot for many conservatives).

Other right-leaning voices joined in on the criticism, many taking personal potshots at the SoS.
