Israeli defence minister says John Kerry should 'take Nobel prize and leave us be' - reports - TelegraphIsraeli defence minister Moshe Yaalon has scathingly attacked US Secretary of State John Kerry and the US-led peace process in private conversations, according to reports.
"Secretary of State John Kerry—who arrived here determined, and who operates from an incomprehensible obsession and a sense of messianism—can't teach me anything about the conflict with the Palestinians", Mr Yaalon is reported as saying.
Mr Yaalon reportedly made his statements in the course of a number of conversations held with American and Israeli officials, according to Israeli daily Yediot Ahranot.
"The only thing that might save us is if John Kerry wins the Nobel Prize and leaves us be", said the Defence Minister.
Turning to the US-led efforts to bring Israelis and Palestinians to an interim agreement in the current round of peace talks, Yaalon dismissed the American proposals with disdain.
@W.G.Ewald, I think Secretary Kerry is doing a great job in his focus sector.
