Vice President Joe Biden has some harsh words for Israel.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The Vice President says Israel's policies are moving the nation in the wrong direction:

(Biden) "The steady and systematic expansion of settlements, the legalization of outposts, land seizures."

Biden made the comments in a speech to an Israel advocacy group hours after a bus bombing in Jerusalem. He suggested Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's approach is raising questions about whether Israel can remain Jewish and Democratic.

He also blasted Palestinian leaders for failing to condemn acts of terrorism carried out against Israel.
