FILE - In this Dec. 15, 2014 file-pool photo, Secretary of State, John Kerry meets with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at Villa Taverna in Rome. Kerry is ending 2014 much in the same way he started it: Frustrated in his efforts to push Israel and Palestinians toward peace. Facing a diplomatic showdown over Arab plans to force Israel from occupied Palestinian lands within three years, Kerry readied himself this week for a 72-hour trip to Jordan to craft a less explosive alternative. By Thursday, the crisis appeared to have been averted: Palestinian and Jordanian officials said they would not force their resolution to an immediate vote in the United Nations Security Council _ in part because the U.S. threatened to veto it.

FILE - In this Oct. 5, 2014 file photo, a library official shows a Jewish manuscript smuggled into Israel from Damascus in a Mossad spy operation in the early 1990s, in Jerusalem. The manuscript is one of the earliest existing complete manuscripts of the Hebrew bible. Two decades after Israeli spies helped whisk eight ancient Hebrew bibles from Damascus to Jerusalem, Israel’s national library asked an Israeli court Monday, Dec. 8, 2014 to grant it official custodianship over the manuscripts, a move that is liable to spark a bitter ownership battle over the some of the Syrian Jewish community’s most important treasures.
