U.S. State Department: Israeli Defense Minister's Comments "Offensive"

EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: This story is withdrawn because of misidentification of the State Department spokeswoman as Jen Psaki instead of Marie Harf. A replacement story with edit number: 3205-VARIOUS-KERRY PEACE TALKS will be sent out immediately. After months of peace talks between Israel and Palestine -- led by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry -- Israel's defense minister has reportedly dismissed Kerry's efforts.
