Peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis were resumed last July under American auspices after it was stopped for nearly three years. Both sides agreed that the negotiations be held inside Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Secretary of state, John Kerry asserted that the negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis will be secret and that any announced results must be only through him. Kerry also asserted the commitment of the US administration to follow up with negotiations until an agreement is reached within a period of six to nine months. After the resignation of Dr. Salam Fayyad’s government, Prof. Rami Hamdallah was entrusted twice with forming new Palestinian governments. Division between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip still persists while each side adheres to their convictions and there are no signs that the division will end.
