FILE - In this June 9, 2013 file photo, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the weekly cabinet meeting in his office in Jerusalem, Israel. Israel’s prime minister, known for his rigid negotiating positions, has been sending signals that he is ready for significant compromises in a peace deal with the Palestinians _ and that he accepts the narrative increasingly favored by his opponents that says ending the West Bank occupation is essential for Israel itself. While some of Benjamin Netanyahu’s political allies say he is serious, the Palestinians remain skeptical. This week’s visit by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry could show which way things can go.
