Secretary of State John Kerry has come under fire for comments he allegedly made in a closed-door meeting on Friday about the stalled peace talks between Israel and Palestine. According to the Daily Beast, Kerry told a group of “influential leaders” Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state” if there is no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon.
As TheBlaze reported, supporters of Israel are using words ranging from “not helpful” to “appalling” to “disgusting” to describe the Secretary of State’s alleged remarks. While the State Department has denied the comments were made, the Associated Press is now reporting Kerry claims to have misspoke when he used the word “apartheid.” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took to the Senate floor on Tuesday to issue a scathing critique in which he calls for Kerry’s resignation.

On radio this morning, Glenn praised Sen. Cruz’s for taking Kerry on in such an articulate way, and he even likened the Senator’s boldness to that of former President Ronald Reagan.
“I can’t think of an issue I have not seen him right on,” Glenn said. “He’s saying the same kind of thing that made the liberals and progressives hate Ronald Reagan so much. He was speaking the truth.”
