Secretary of State John Kerry was branded "messianic" by Israel's defense minister in a newspaper interview just days before he is due to visit the country.

Moshe Yaalon was quoted by Yediot Aharonot newspaper on Tuesday as saying that the only thing that could "save" Israel was for Kerry to receive the Nobel Peace Prize and "leave us alone."
