The United States will push for a two-state peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians until the end of President Barack Obama's mandate, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Monday, according to AFP.
Speaking in Washington to a conference held by J Street, Kerry said attacks like Monday's on an Israeli bus in Jerusalem only underlined the need for a negotiated solution.
"Despite the fact that we have spent time and effort to try to get there for these past few years I can tell you that for these next nine months we will not stop working to find a way," Kerry was quoted as having said.
He insisted that pro-peace factions among both populations understand the importance of a viable Palestine alongside a secure Israel as the only basis for peace and democracy in the region.
"And so we will continue to advance the two-state solution as the only solution, because anything else will not be Jewish and it will not be democratic," he declared, to applause from J Street invitees.

Abbas walked away from Oslo to Join HaMass. Gaza is their state. Not Israel. Get it Dummy Kerry?
I didn’t get it at Pnomh Penh. I didn’t get it at Khe San. I didn’t get it during the Tet Offensive, and I’m certainly not going to get it now. Heeehaw.
A republican president can’t come soon enough.
The real solution is for all the Muslim states to take in the pathetic Palestinian pukes.
Most infuriating thing is how he pontificates about what is and isn’t Jewish. Are all libtard politicians now master theologians, able to tell us what is and isn’t real Islam, and what is and isn’t real Judaism? What is the basis of their qualifications? Antipathy towards Christians?
as long as he lives in one of the two states and not here.
what a dope.
Kerry vows to continue pushing for ‘unrealistic two-state solution’, the same stupid one advocated in 1947 that the Paleostinians (then called “Arabs”) rejected then and reject today.

Then the Tribulation will begin, coinciding with that. At the end of Obama’s term, watch him catapult to United Nations Secretary-General.
They’ll probably come up with a sharing arrangement a la “Left Behind”.
When the confirmation of the covenant is for 7 years, that, IMO, stars the clock. The world will know because the Two Witnesses will arrive. (among other things that just may coincide......)
that would sum it up better :)
what’s with this Palestine anyway?
if arab countries (never will happen) poured tens of billions into it and the people really wanted, could it be a nice place?
I think leftists basis of reality is virtual reality. It is what they want it to be and not real.
I seriously think these people have a stunted, or retarded, mind development. Emotions rule over logic. Somewhere their mind stops developing around the 15-18 year old range.
What utter BS!
JFKerry is a horse’s anatomical hindquarters, and a gross embarrassment to USA.
(Kerry and his boss will GTH for sure for all this evil foolishness!)
No, it would be a sewer of corruption, poverty, and brutality.
All one has to do is to look at the old, secular, Communist PLO and all her splinter groups’ logos, flags, pins, emblems and other symbols. They all show ALL of Israel on their maps. That is, these folks NVER wanted any kind of compromise, they want ALL of Israel and this has been true since 1885.
Now look at the newer, religious, Jihadi HAMAS/Hizbollah and all her splinter groups’ logos, flags, pins, emblems and other symbols. They all show ALL of Israel on their maps. That is, these folks NVER wanted any kind of compromise, they want ALL of Israel and this has been true since 1885.
The West Bank capital for the Palis is Ramallah, run by the secular, murderous PLO.
The Gaza strip capital for the Palis is Gaza City, run by the religious, murderous HAMAS.
Who is Israel supposed to negotiate with and what the heck are they supposed to negotiate about? Their demise????
Sorry about the typos...
And never a single word about the vile,devious and totally unreliable Palis. Why are still giving these wogs money?
Very accurate analysis.
What do many Biblical scholars say about the timing of the rapture vis a vis the signing of the 7 Year Peace Treaty?
Are Believers raptured before it is signed?
then they need to take back the land they gave in that ill fated “gesture?” some years back.
“...pro-peace factions among both populations understand the importance of a viable Palestine alongside a secure Israel as the only basis for peace and democracy in the region.”
OK. Identify the pro-peace faction among the Palestinians. Do they have any organization? Where is its office? Who is its head?
I happen to be a pro-peace Israeli, but I understand that a two-state solution would shortly lead to mass slaughter on both sides. Ghaza put the lie to “land for piece”. The biggest obstacle to real peace, though there are so many to choose from, is the “international community”’s insistence on the completely discredited two-state “solution” and their inability to realize or even admit, assuming they really to realize it, that it’s been completely discredited.
Israel gave up TANGIBLE territory for the PROMISE by the PLO to stop being the PLO and turn into the Palestinian Authority (PA) and reign in terror.
Wat did they Israelis get?
Their own withdrawal
Intifada II (resulting in over 1,000 Israelis murdered and 4,500 maimed or injured).
What dd the PLO (and later, HAMAS) get?
a chance to improve their relationship with Israel
What was the net result?
Dead Jews What is Israel being asked to do in the name of a "Two-State" solution? Withdraw, give up tangible assests again. What is the PLO (PA) being asked to do? Zero
