JNS.orgA report indicates that Martin Indyk, U.S. special envoy to Israel-Palestinian peace negotiations, may resign over the recent collapse of the peace talks.

According to Haaretz, Indyk has informed the Brookings Institute—where he took a leave of absence as vice president nine months ago—that he will be returning soon.

Haaretz also reported that Indyk was the anonymous U.S. senior official quoted in a wide-ranging Yedioth Ahronoth report that largely blamed the collapse of peace talks on Israel.

“There are a lot of reasons for the peace effort’s failure, but people in Israel shouldn’t ignore the bitter truth—the primary sabotage came from the settlements,” the source quoted as a U.S. senior official told Yedioth Ahronoth.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is finishing up a weeklong trip in Africa, is expected to return to Washington, DC to hold meetings on the peace process, and it is likely that the U.S. will decide to “pause” its efforts towards a solution to the conflict. Kerry has also hinted that he may release the “framework document” on the U.S. peace plan.
