Sen. John Kerry says Israel does not have a negotiating partner right now. The Massachusetts Democrat, who is the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination for president, said Monday that Hamas predominates on the Palestinian street, depriving Israel of a credible partner. In an article widely circulated in the Jewish community, Ha’aretz misquoted Kerry as saying that it is Israel’s government that “lacks the goods” to negotiate.
