Secretary of State John F. Kerry said at a news conference Tuesday that the two sides "have agreed today that all of the final status issues, all of the core issues and all other issues are on the table for negotiations.... They are on the table with a single goal: a view to ending the conflict, ending the claims."If there's any "flesh", I hope it will not include any Jewish sacrifices of lives - neither as a result of the releasing of terrorist murderers or the increasing of Pal. presumption that violence works to force diplomatic catastrophes on Israel.
Kerry's statement "has now fleshed it out and made more specific that they're going for a full agreement, to bring an end of conflict and an end of claims," said Robert Danin, a former U.S. diplomat in the Middle East who is now with the Council on Foreign Relations. "This is a maximalist agenda."
