Haaretz's Barak Ravid reports that US Secretary of State John FN Kerry has given Israeli and 'Palestinian' negotiators something upon which they can agree.
About one thing, theres no disagreement between Jerusalem and Ramallah: Kerry has a lot of good intentions and a real sense of mission; he truly wants to make peace in the Middle East. But despite his good intentions, Kerry so far looks like a naive and ham-handed diplomat who has been acting like a bull in the china shop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Or as former Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan once put it, hes a good chap in the worst sense of the term.
Over the last two months, Kerry has managed to upset both sides and make both more suspicious of him by a series of misguided moves and statements. In early April, for instance, at the end of a visit to Jerusalem and Ramallah, he said that within a few weeks, he would launch a plan to rescue the Palestinian economy. But an Israeli source said the enthusiastic Kerry forgot one small thing − to coordinate the statement in advance with the Israelis and Palestinians.
Ravid reports that Kerry's clumsy attempts to prevent the resignation of 'Palestinian Prime Minister' Salam Fayyad probably brought about Fayyad's resignation.
