Kerry: Closer to Peace Deal Between Israel and Palestine Than in Years

“The example of Nelson Mandela is an example that we all need to take to heart,” Mr. Kerry said as he departed after his eighth visit to the region since April in hopes of forging a two-state solution to the long-running conflict.
