Kerry sees progress in Mideast peace talks

Jun 30 2013, 10:12am CDT | by

Ramallah, June 30 (IANS) US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday said progress was made in his efforts to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Ramallah, June 30 — US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday said progress was made in his efforts to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Kerry has been in the region since Thursday for discussions with Palestinian and Israeli leaders. He is on his fifth visit to the region since he began his task in March, Xinhua reported.

However, after a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah Sunday, Kerry said there were some matters that needed to be settled first to complete the progress.

Kerry promised to reveal more details.

Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians stopped in 2010 over a dispute on Israel's settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said Kerry's meeting with Abbas was "positive and thorough".

He said the Palestinians were cooperating positively with Kerry, and accused Israel of "putting obstacles on the way of peace", referring to Israel's plans to build 930 new settler homes in an East Jerusalem settlement.

"We do not have conditions to resume the negotiations," Erekat said.

"When we call for the principle of the two-state solution, stopping the settlements and releasing the old prisoners, we are talking about Israeli commitments, not Palestinian conditions," he said.

Jeffrey Goldberg's 'Chickensh*t' Article Blames Bibi for U.S.-Israel Breakdown

Oct 28 2014 3:06pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Jeffrey Goldberg, who has become something of a stenographer to President Barack Obama on foreign policy, has broken the dog-bites-man news that the Obama administration dislikes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He adds that an Obama official referred to Netanyahu as "chickenshit," though Goldberg uses that as an excuse to vent his own bile at Bibi, whom he says bears most blame for the crisis in U.S.-Israel relations. Goldberg bl ...
