John Kerry Visits Jerusalem and West Bank City of Jericho

We've been following the news reports on John Kerry's trip to the Middle East for the past week. Today Kerry visited West Bank City of Jericho and Jerusalem, where he held a press conference.

At the press conference in Jerusalem today, John Kerry said that next week's election for a new Palestinian parliament could mark a turning point, but he warned that participation by the militant Hamas could cause complications.

"The Palestinian Authority has an opportunity, hopefully, to set a new course for itself," he said. "All of us are going to look forward to the results of these elections and pursue with interest the opportunities they may or may not provide."
