Jerusalem - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he has not yet reached a deal between Israel and Hamas to call a 7-day humanitarian truce in the Gaza war but is continuing work.

Kerry’s comments at a Friday evening press conference in Cairo came after days of shuttling between the Egyptian capital, Jerusalem and the West Bank trying to work out a week-long truce. Israeli media say Israel’s Security Cabinet rejected the plan in its current form.

Kerry said a truce would provide seven days to work out further talks to address each side’s demands. He said some “terminology” on a truce’s framework still needed work.

“We don’t yet have that final framework, but none of us are stopping,” he said.

Israel has managed to survive and thrive, even lead the world in science, medicine, defense, technology, and so many other areas.


Wonder how they did it all this time without Kerry's help?

Alterg : I think that you are missing one major important piece. All Israel wants to do is have peace. Real peace. If they can not accept a cease fire it is only because it does not protect its civilians from danger and will not mean peace.

You can be sure that IF it's true that Israel rejected the Kerry-Moon ceasefire proposal, then it no doubt contained total appeasement of Hamas and giving in to their demands, and no security guarantees for Israel! Surprise surprise!

Why doesn't Obama send Kerry to chicago to make a cease fire between the police and the gangs? They'll agree to a 7 day cooling off period while they try to workout their differences and try to meet each others demands. Nisht doo veir zul lochin.
