JNS.orgU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned that time is running out on the peace process during a speech at the American Jewish Committee’s Global Forum in Washington, DC.

“We’re running out of time. We’re running out of possibilities. And let’s be clear: If we do not succeed now… we may not get another chance,” said Kerry in his first speech to American Jewish leaders as secretary of state.

Meanwhile, a report on Monday quoted a U.S. official as saying America may eventually abandon the peace process if it determined that Israelis and Palestinians were not serious about negotiations.
