Secretary of State John F. Kerry set an ambitious schedule Tuesday for new peace talks between Israel and Palestine, saying the goal is to achieve a "final-status agreement" between the two sides by the end of April.
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's power grab presents a unique opportunity for the Obama administration to take a firm position on what the United States will tolerate from post-Arab Spring governments, foreign-policy analysts say.
With Hamas leaders expected to repudiate any agreement reached between the delegation and Israel, Mr. Danin added, Gaza "contains the seeds for undermining a deal."
Mr. Danin, who held a conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, noted that "Gaza exists out of the control" of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, whose representatives constitute the entire Palestinian delegation participating in the peace talks.
