Netanyahu to Host Kerry Thursday Evening


Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States will meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Thursday evening in Jerusalem, as part of Kerry's latest effort to bring Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) back to the negotiating table. Kerry is reportedly seeking rapid progress in the peace process.

Netanyah said, Thursday, that any peace deal with the PA must be based on Israel's ability to defend itself if the agreement breaks down.
