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

After months of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians -- led by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry -- Israel's defense minister has reportedly dismissed Kerry's efforts. Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon was quoted by a popular Israeli newspaper as saying Kerry is quote "acting out of an incomprehensible obsession and a messianic feeling." He also reportedly said the secretary quote "cannot teach me a single thing about the conflict with the Palestinians."
