Kerry: Year, Two Left For Peace, 'Or It's Over'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 17/4/13 | Gil Ronen

US Secretary of State John Kerry again warned Wednesday that time was slipping away to reach a Middle East peace deal, and for the first time said there may only be a year or two left.

Appearing before US lawmakers for the first time since becoming America's top diplomat in February, Kerry said his three trips to the region already were proof of his commitment to try to find a way to resume peace talks, AFP reported.

The Obama administration is "trying to find out what is possible," Kerry told the House foreign affairs committee, as he laid out the State Department's priorities for the 2014 budget.

He stressed he had no plan so far to lay out before Congress "because we're in the process of working that out with the critical parties."

"But I can guarantee you that I am committed to this, because I believe the window for a two-state solution is shutting. I think we have some period of time -- a year to year-and-a-half to two years -- or it's over," Kerry warned.

Every Lefty since Israel was first recognized by the U.N. in 1947, has said the same thing.

Yawn.

It’s far better not to have piece, than to agree to have your nation broken into pieces.

Mr. Kerry, you’re an absolute fool.

The fact that Obama, Biden, Kerry and Boehner are the top 4 leaders in the greatest country on earth is absolutely terrifying...

This NORK situation must have Kerry, the French guy who was also in Nam, and also a communist loving traitor, probably very upset!

He could have two years. Or ten. Or a hundred. There will not be Peace in the Middle East under the framework proposed by knobs like Kerry or Obama. The enemies of Israel do not want peace. Never have, never will.

Roger that. Kerry even claimed/faked a PH at Cam Ranh Bay? Unreal. Then the other one with the same last name got a CMH from Hon Tre Island. I hate to even think what those two would consider combat? A Rhade cross bow would be a big deal.

Only a fatuous ass would make a pronouncement like that. I give you Jean François Carrie, professional gigolo and dabbler in politics and statecraft. Now you know what we in Massachusetts have been contending with for the last three decades. His rich wives make him run for office to get him out of the office.

Yeah, and one, two years at the most, the icecaps will melt, unless we elect Obama.

Thanks Eleutheria5.

“middle east peace is the new global warming.”

The last time there was peace in the Middle East was the moment before Adam and Eve walked the earth.
