Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry "utterly unfit" for his job and wants the country's chief diplomat to resign from his post if he does not disavow remarks he made recently saying that Israelis bear some of the responsibility for the recent string of violence in their country.

"It is utterly unacceptable that a senior official in the U.S. government would make such an unfounded slur against Israel, which has been our invaluable ally in the fight against terrorism," Cruz said in a statement sent to the press.
