Kerry On Israel

John Kerry Regrets Saying Israel Could Become an 'Apartheid State'
If the offending statement is the one quoted below, I don't understand the controversy.
Kerry's use of the term during his remarks to the Trilateral Commission on Friday was first reported by The Daily Beast's Josh Rogin on Sunday. While explaining "how imperative it is to get to the two-state solution," Kerry said, "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."
That is prima facie a true statement.
