Secretary of State John Kerry has shown his true anti-Israel beliefs, and once again the item has been printed deep inside the newspaper rather than on Page 1 where it belongs ["Kerry criticized over 'apartheid' remark," News, April 29].

He said Israel could become an apartheid state because, according to him, Israel refuses to reach a peace deal to create a separate Palestinian state. Although the papers are singing hosannas over Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas admitting that the Holocaust took place, Newsday and other media are ignoring the second part of his statement: that he will never accept a Jewish state.

Does Kerry agree with Abbas that Israel must cease to exist?
