A senior Palestinian official said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry “guaranteed in writing” that Israeli-Palestinian peace talks would start with the 1967 lines.

American officials, however, denied the existence of such a document, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Nabil Shaath, the Palestinian commissioner for international relations, told the newspaper that the Palestinians agreed to restart the peace talks as a direct result of the guarantee.

State Department spokesman Marie Harf told the Times in an emailed statement, “We have always said that if you don’t hear news about the talks from senior U.S. officials, you can’t count on it being reliable. This is a good example.”

An Israeli spokesman would not comment to the Times on the guarantee.

The Palestinians have insisted that talks be based on the 1967 lines, and the United States has agreed though with agreed-upon land swaps. Israel has insisted there be no preconditions for talks.

Israel last week complained to the United States about Palestinian officials leaking information about the relaunched peace talks, despite both sides agreeing to honor a request by Kerry that information about the negotiations be kept under wraps.

    In light of such discovery, the western water carriers for Islam
    Would again have to update their revision of history and their rewriting of national memory per the Islamic koranic narratives of their muslim masters. And such task isn’t a 10 agurot matter. now is it ?

    Amazing how, a Jewish Woman attending her daily work, makes a irrefutable factual forensic discovery
    Another discovery that makes the ‘peace process’ teams and facilitator look sooo ridiculous & absurd.

    And now that the muslims are already working to put the blame for the talks failure on Israel so it be Int’lly pressured to relieve every single muslims extortions, should Israelis get a stock of atropine injection & extra gas masks?

  3. The causes of all these nonsensess are your‘s.You are the people who agreed to have the peace talk with them,that is why they even have the got to mention of the 1967 border agreement with Kerry.You are just wasting your time for nothing that may not work out now.It is only God,who instituted the conflict by Himself,that will end it up at the right time,and not America.So,you should better save your useful times for important things instead.Because you may not get it done,not at this time at all.All you need to do is to be yourselves at all the times,so as to overcome all the WESTERN preasures.The decision is not your‘s to make,but God‘s.And you should not mind the WESTERN christians,who claims to know the bible,but doesn‘t practice what it says.

  5. Not defendable borders in 67 . Those of judean Christian faith(in America) will not support or accept this. We hate Miidldle eastern foreign policy. Maybe israel should give calif and Texas to Mexico- it would make more sense than American appeasement policies to Saudi oil . May Gods punishment fall on corruption in governments!

  7. who gave him the right to say such a thing, yet, guarantee such a thing? He’s not a Jew, yet, he has the audacity to guarantee returning Hashem’s land to infidels? He should go about returning land to the Native Americans, Spanish, French, English, etc. See where he winds up! Moron!

  9. Let's see…Kerry is a Democrat. 72% of the American Jewish electorate voted for Obama and the Democrats. Put one and one together and do you have? The abolition of Israel, and the creation of Palestine. The Jews in America will be happy and the world will rest easy.
