      Muallem: If Kerry Won't Get it, I'll Explain it Myself


      MK Shuli Muallem (Jewish Home) said on Thursday that she was willing to hold a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and personally explain to him the strategic importance of the Jordan Valley.

      "There is no doubt that the Jordan Valley is a strategic asset and therefore we must reject any proposal that would include a withdrawal from Judea and Samaria,” she said. "As the prime minister sits down with the American foreign minister, I hope that he will clarify to him the importance of the Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley for generations to come."
