Kerry to Remain in Israel for Additional ‘Peace Talks’ Meetings

U.S. Secretary of State Kohn Kerry reportedly will remain in Israel in order to hold additional talks leading to an Israeli –Palestinian peace treaty.

Kerry, who arrived in Israel on Thursday, flew to Saudi Arabia on Sunday morning in order to report to Arab leaders on the negotiations. He told reporters in Israel as he left that he would return Sunday night and could stay up to several days longer in order to continue guiding the peace process forward.

Kerry addressed progress in the talks Saturday night in Ramallah in remarks with chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, following a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the Muqata.

“I am confident that the talks we’ve had in the last two days have already fleshed out and even resolved certain kinds of issues and presented new opportunities for others. That’s the name of this game. It’s a tough process, step by step, day by day,” Kerry said.

From Thursday evening to Sunday morning Kerry met three times each with Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his tenth visit to Israel since taking office.

Kerry added that both Netanyahu and Abbas “have remained absolutely steadfast to this effort and committed to the notion that two peoples living side by side in peace and security is a goal worth fighting for and that the progress being made is sufficient to encourage people to keep going. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do, and I think over the next week we have some very serious homework – all of us – to do.”

On Friday, Kerry surprised a group of university student leaders visiting Israel through the American Jewish Committee’s Project Interchange by dropping in to a briefing being conducted by State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki for the university student delegations. Psaki had been giving the students an in-depth briefing on the region when Kerry stopped in and took some questions.

The students, including campus media leaders such as editors-in-chief of their campus newspapers, from across the U.S. , and California university student leaders, met with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, both in Israel and in Ramallah, during their visit.

  1. BULL NO PEACE WITH MURDERS=MUSLIMS=ARABS

  2. I am against efforts to make peace that involve Israel in such a way that demands that they give up any of their land. I know it sounds weary to many people that I state that God brought Israel back into this land, BUT that is EXACTLY what God has done! When the Arab nations around Israel attacked; God continued to extend Israel’s borders. Israel even regained Jerusalem and the Temple mount! These events/wars have been an obvious fulfillment of God’s promise to bring Israel back into his land in the end times. He even specified that the nation would be born in ONE day. That day was May 14, 1948. God’s word teaches us that in the end times when Israel is brought back, that they would never be fully removed again. To make a so called peace deal which involves giving away the land that God promised Israel is a huge sin. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that an evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  3. Something SO fishy is going on. Bibi would never stand for these suicidal "peace talks" where Kerry STILL has asked NOTHING from the Fakestinians. I'm watching this like a hawk with a pit in my stomach. I'm not even religious, and I say GOD HELP ISRAEL.

  4. Kerry DOES NOT speak for we Americans who love Israel and recognize the same old "Israel give ALL, Arabs give NOTHING" scheme to set Israel up for annihilation by her enemies! GOD will protect His people. They will KNOW that HE IS LORD ! May HE open the eyes of OUR LEADERS and cause them to repent for aiding the enemies of ADONAI HIMSELF, or we as a nation will be judged.

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    Hope that all this is true. Unfortunately I have my doubts. Unless Israel gives up everything the PLO will not accept the terms.
