A Hamas official on Saturday asserted that US Secretary of State John Kerry held a bias toward Israel in his efforts to revive stalemated peace negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, Bethlehem-based news agency Ma'an reported.

“Kerry isn’t managing a crisis, but rather siding with Israel. He doesn’t even have in mind that he should address the issue justly," Ma'an quoted Salah Barawill as saying in reference to Kerry's recent shuttle diplomacy in the region. 

"The US has other priorities which are much more important than the Palestinian issue, especially because the US is confident that Israel is superior militarily, and because Arab countries are busy with internal conflicts,” he added.
