Kerry gets started at State, speaks to Middle East leaders

By: CNN Political Unit

Secretary of State John Kerry spoke with leaders from Israel and the Palestinian Authority, among others, during his first weekend on the job, according to a readout released by the State Department on Sunday.

The former senator from Massachusetts spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the country's recent elections and the Middle East peace process. He also talked to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas about Israeli-Palestinian relations and vowed to continue efforts with Congress to send funds to the authority.

The conversations came one day after Kerry spoke with Israeli President Shimon Peres, whom he has known since he was a freshman senator, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a readout on Saturday.

    I'm amazed, I have got to admit. Seldom will i encounter your blog that's equally educative and engaging,
    and without a doubt, you've hit the nail about the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. I'm thrilled which i stumbled on this in my look for something in relation to this.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

    Is Kerry going to show Israel pictures of their raid into Syria? Israel doesn't seem to know about this! The first Israeli comments came from the defense minister this weekend who neither confirmed nor denied anything! Of course, the US hasn't said anything either. Was it a convoy or a research facility? Maybe, they didn't hit anything and are too embarrased to talk about it!
