A staffer for Henry Kissinger denied that the former U.S. secretary of state said that Israel will not be in existence in 10 years.

"It's not a misquote," Tara Butzbaugh, who works in Kissinger's New York office, told JTA on Monday, referring to an item in Cindy Adams' New York Post gossip column. "He didn't say it."

Adams in her column posted Sept. 17 wrote that "Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated -- and I quote the statement word for word: 'In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.' "
