      PA Insists East Jerusalem Be Their Capital

      ABC News reports a PA Arab official says the PA has reservations about some of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's ideas for the outlines of a peace deal with Israel, particularly on the future of Jerusalem.

      Kerry left Monday after meetings with Israeli and PA leaders. He is to present a U.S. proposal for a peace framework and is expected back in the region next week, says ABC News.

      The official said Monday that wide gaps remain, including about east Jerusalem, which the PA insists must be defined as the PA state capital.
