OUCH: Britain, edging towards Trump, scolds Kerry over Israel.

In an unusually sharp public rebuke of Obama’s top diplomat, [Prime Minister Theresa] May’s spokesman said that Israel had coped for too long with the threat of terrorism and that focusing only on the settlements was not the best way to achieve peace between Jew and Arab.

London also took particular issue with Kerry’s description of Netanyahu’s coalition as “the most right-wing in Israeli history, with an agenda driven by its most extreme elements.”

“We do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally,” May’s spokesman said when asked about Kerry 70-minute speech in the State Department’s auditorium.

That’s been a hallmark of this administration.
