John Kerry succeeded at restarting Israeli relations with Turkey, kept Egypt as a mediator in the region, helped preserve the relationship with Jordan (which was deteriorating), and now achieved the reiteration of the Arab League proposal. One by one, the potentially justifiable reasons that Israel would not pursue peace, are being made irrelevant. The only good reason remaining for Israel to not pursue peace with Palestine is the disunity in the Palestinian community, between Hamas and Fatah, and between those that have given up on all trust for Israeli integrity of agreement, and those that continue some hope. Do nothing is always more convenient and graceful. He is saving Israel, and Israelis fiddle.
