Frustrated Kerry urges leadership from Israel PM, Abbas

US Secretary of State John Kerry (C) arrives in Algiers, Algeria, on April 2, 2014A frustrated US secretary of state demanded Thursday action from recalcitrant Israeli and Palestinian leaders, saying it was time for them to demonstrate leadership in the crisis-hit peace talks. But John Kerry acknowledged in Algiers that negotiators from the two sides had made “progress” in lengthy overnight talks in Jerusalem, also attended by the Americans. More than a year of intensive Kerry shuttle diplomacy appeared to be on the brink of collapse this week after Israel announced a fresh wave of settlement tenders and the Palestinians resumed moves to seek international recognition for their promised state. Speaking Thursday morning during a visit to Algeria, Kerry threw down the gauntlet to both sides, telling them it was time for compromise at what he called a “critical moment” in the peace talks.
